(ConservativeInsider.org) – Since 1972, Iowa has been the first state to caucus, meaning it selects its preferred presidential candidates before other states. This makes it key to any presidential hopeful’s strategy, as winning this state helps get their campaign off on the right foot. While former President Donald Trump has not announced a 2024 run for the White House, he’s polling very well in Iowa ahead of his Saturday, October 9 rally.
From September 12 to 15, Des Moines Register/Mediacom polled 805 Iowa adults about the favorability of popular politicians. While the survey has a margin of error of around 3.5 points, 53% of Iowans said they view former president Trump either very or mostly favorably. This is higher than any ratings on Trump while he was in office. On the other hand, 44% of respondents held a mostly or unfavorable view of him, with 2% still undecided.
Newsweek shared more about the impressive poll on Twitter:
While Trump's approval in Iowa has increased since he left office, Biden's struggling in the state with an approval that's lower than Trump's historic low. https://t.co/mGYEmc5Jbz

The new poll data shows that Republicans in Iowa are growing more and more confident in the former president’s ability to right what they think is wrong in this nation. In turn, it could bode well for the GOP in the 2022 midterms as it tries to win back both the House and the Senate.
