Iowa Governor Election 2010: Republican Branstad 53%, Incumbent Democrat Culver 38%


Republican challenger and former governor Terry Branstad leads current incumbent Democrat governor Chet Culver 53% to 38% in the most recent Rasmussen poll for Iowa Governor. Branstad served as governor from 1983 to 1999.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows Branstad with 53% support from likely Iowa voters to Culver’s 38%. That’s a two-point increase in support for Culver since March and his highest level of support against Branstad since Rasmussen Reports began polling voters about the gubernatorial race last September. But only three percent (3%) of voters remain undecided, while six percent (6%) prefer another candidate.

Republicans will pick their nominee on June 8, 2010. Branstad leads Culver by a greater margin in the polls than any other of the GOP challengers like Bob Vander Plaats and Rod Roberts.

For the general election, it is most probably that the GOP will pick up the Iowa governorship as there should also be some Charles Grassley Senate coattails. Grassley is polling well over 50% and leads handily over all Democrat challengers.

Paint Iowa Red for the 2010 midterm elections.
