Again, I think Ernst is up but by a lot less than this.

Selzer has polled other states in past cycles.  I recall seeing a Selzer Ohio poll in 2012, but I might be wrong.

They polled CO, which was decent, and NH (way back in early 2011 though) .

Oh, she's a good pollster. Has had outliers like this before though. http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2012/06/22/155530608/bloomberg-pollster-defends-survey-showing-obama-with-big-lead

As I thought, Selzer also polled Ohio in September 2012 for Bloomberg, though it's not in our database.

From the poll.  Granted, the sample size was small, but...

So much for the all hallowed ground game making much of a difference.  Every non-2010 voter would have voted regardless of any campaign contact.

I have had my doubts that Ernst would pull it out, but as I said a few weeks ago, I would base my final prediction based on Selzer's last poll.

It's not going to be a 7% win, but I'm officially predicting an Ernst win - probably around 51-47.

Let's hope that Obama and Reid pack the courts as quickly as possible during the lame duck. Maybe get Ginsburg to resign as well and ram a replacement through.

What's the breakdown of the already voted crowd in this poll?

Also, Iowa is probably the Obama state most likely to turn red in the coming years. Let's face it, it's heavily rural, white, declining in population and aging. In the 2020s I expect Iowa to have an R+ PVI. States like Virginia, Florida, North Carolina and Colorado have a much higher likelihood of becoming blue states over the long term than Iowa.

Ernst is winning IA-02 in this poll. Which is hilarious, given this:

A plugged-in Democratic House official said internal polling showed Braley trailing Republican Joni Ernst in all of the state's congressional districts, even those that typically favor Democrats.

I can't find it in the poll or crosstabs

37% of respondents already voted.  That includes 54% of Democrats, 33% of Republicans and 28% of Independents. 

12% of all likely voters didn't vote in the 2010 elections.  A greater percentage of Republicans (10%) than Democrats (7%) didn't vote in 2010.  The percentage of Independents who didn't vote in 2010 is greater than those from either party (19%).

Quinnipiac and PPP will both have polls out probably Monday. But you don't need them to know that Iowa is likely going Republican. Ernst has been leading for a while.

Yeah, this one is over.  Braley was a God awful candidate and Ernst is a very good candidate.  She has busted this thing wide open.  Cotton has done the same in Arkansas.  Gardner is doing well in Colorado. McConnell has busted his race open too.  I wonder if these races are picking up a GOP wave.

Take a long walk off of a short pier, okay? This poll isn't anything like what we've seen recently, so it's an outlier.

I'll get over it if Democrats lose, so don't expect anything to entertain you. I'm not a Republican, thank god.

If it's a 2 point Ernst win then Braley most likely wins IA-1 and 2. Braley I guess was a bit overrated from the start, barely survived in 2010 and his 2012 margin was the same as Obama in that district. A stronger Dem would have won by more than 1 point in 2010s version of IA-1.

No, look at the RCP average that you cherish so much, there hasn't been a poll with this wide of a spread in weeks.

Ernst is closing strong.

There has not been a Braley lead in the RCP average in months. Didn't stop you.

Looks like Tuesday is a big make or break for the reputation's of Selzer and Marquette.

Or possibly PPP here.

You have two differing visions about what's going on with the 2014 electorate. The state Gold standard polls are detecting a very noticeable shift to the Republicans in WI and IA at least.  Some of the other pollsters seem to think more Democrats will head to the polls.

PPP is kind of hedging with predictions on states like KY and AR to make make them look more favorable to the Rs. It will be interesting to see what they do with IA when they release their own final poll.

As far as Iowa goes, Ernst has had a small, but persistent lead for a while now. The race was leaning in her direction. Seltzer confirms that.
