The Chicago Tribune has released a poll which shows — as most others do — that the Bush/Kerry race in Iowa is too close to call. Radio Iowa’s O. Kay Henderson has reviewed the poll, and found these other trends identified by the pollsters.The poll charts President Bush’s approval rating — and it’s now below 50 percent. And just over 50 percent of likely voters in Iowa say they’re dissatisfied with the way Bush has handled the war in Iraq and the economy. Just one-third of Iowans said they believe America’s winnign the war in Iraq. Yet a majority of those who responded to the poll say they trust Bush more than Kerry to protect the nation from another terrorist attack. Kerry, meanwhile, is considered by a majority of the Iowans surveyed to be better able to restore jobs and grow the economy. Health care was the top concern listed by Iowa voters, and most voters now consider terrorism to be a lesser concern than either health care or jobs. And finally, in a turn-around, Kerry and Bush are dead even in Iowa in terms of “likeability” which is seen as a key factor in the minds of late-deciding voters.
