Database entry.

I saw this on the Rasmussen site; olawakandi beat me to posting it. But, yeah, this is Rasmussen being Rasmussen.

against Aubry, Sarkozy will win. Aubry is a very bad candidate for prime time : no charisma, no sympathy, muslim connection, stupid ideas,... and sarkozy is a good candidate...

but against hollande, sarkozy will lose."

This is right on track with what other polls are saying, so I see no reason to dismiss it.

A surprise overall - I expected Iowa to be around +5 Obama at this point.

Why?  Iowa swung pretty Republican in 2010, and its the ripest of the swing states for Romney to take away

That happens when you go from a super competitive Dem race in 2008 to nothing but an R caucus in 2012.

Why didn't umengus point out that fact in his post? Maybe it was because the poll benefits republicans...

correct...

If Romney leads by 1 but Obama leads by 1 amongst I in a R+5 sample, I suppose that Romney can again  win voters amongst republicans...

All in all, the result seems correct.

and a R+5 is not an outrage considering the D+1 in 2008... A swing of 6 is quite possible

Was only R+2 in 2004. I have no doubt the state has swung to the right since 2008 but I don't think it is more Republican than it was in 2004.
