Obama 49

Iowa doesn't look favorable to the Democrats in the future, regardless if Obama wins it this year or not. Isn't most of the population in this state decline coming from Eastern Iowa?

Sad thing is, this poll will be read as 'Iowa narrows' by most people rather than highlight the movement in Obama's favour.

Well, Obama could have been up by 7 at the time of the debate. So, 5% Romney-bounce.

Small potatoes given the trend in Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio.

The rural areas in Eastern Iowa are declining, but the counties will larger cities (Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, Dubuque) are still growing.

The last Rasmussen was about 3 weeks ago. 

Absentees have closed as of this morning, but are still running ahead of 2008 for the D's, in terms of percentage.
