President Donald Trump took the lead in the Iowa polls Sunday, just days before the presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden is now lagging in the Iowa Poll, which was conducted by the Des Moines Register/Mediacom.
According to the Des Moines Register Iowa Poll, Trump now leads by 7 percentage points over Biden, 48% to 41%.
Further, “three percent say they will vote for someone else, 2% aren’t sure and 5% don’t want to say for whom they will vote.” If these numbers hold, Trump will have a significant lead and the ramifications could be felt in other states, particularly battleground states that earlier had Biden in the lead.
Just look back in September, when the Iowa Poll, showed the candidates were both tied at 47% to 47%.
This new poll is a big loss for Biden, who watched as his campaign took big hits over the past month. It may also be a sign of what is happening in other states, particularly swing states.
Pollsters and analysts are keeping a close eye on Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Michigan.
Why? Because Biden’s recent statements during the last debate that his administration would phase out the oil and fracking industry had a direct impact on independent voters and Americans employed by this industry who are concerned the Democrats liberal economic policies will do severe damage to the nation’s economy and lead to debilitating unemployment.
“The poll of 814 likely Iowa voters was conducted by Selzer & Co. of Des Moines from Oct. 26-29. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.”

Daily Wire investigation: Italian company may have illegally sold rights to the Vatican’s priceless art
The Daily Wire has been conducting a fascinating investigation into the Vatican Museum’s priceless artwork. “Rights to the Vatican Museums’ priceless trove of art treasures may have been illegally sold without the Holy See’s approval in what one attorney described as a “high-tech heist,” the investigation finds.
An Italian company is allegedly selling the rights to reproduce the Vatican artwork in six-figure deals, while claiming to be working in “collaboration with” the Vatican Museums.
“This scheme is nothing less than a pre-meditated, high-tech heist of world-class treasured art from the Vatican Museums under the disguise of bogus licenses, as if sanctioned by the Vatican,” Sarah Rose Speno, a New York attorney, told The Daily Wire.
The Daily Wire’s report notes that Speno said she stumbled upon the alleged scheme in March when she sought permission to use images of Vatican art for an exhibition by a client.
“We discovered that a large table book had been published with high-resolution images of the interiors of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel,” Speno said. “We very much wanted to pursue an opportunity to license these images, as soon as possible.”
Speno contacted Scripta Maneant — the Italian publisher that licensed the photos in the book. Scripta Maneant claimed authority to broker the publishing rights via its “collaboration” with Vatican Museums vice director, Monsignore Paolo Nicolini. Scripta Maneant wanted $550,000 for the rights — with a portion being paid to the Vatican through Nicolini, according to Speno. Although Scripta Maneant claimed the fee would be shared with the Vatican, Speno said she later became suspicious.
“The Scripta Maneant scheme became obvious when the Scripta principals demanded a cash wire in the amount of $82,500 no later than their return from summer holiday in late August,” Speno said. “They said that they would produce Vatican approval for our Italian Renaissance Immersive project ‘if and only if’ the fee were wired to the Scripta bank account they provided. It was at this point that grave suspicion entered my mind.”
Ultimately, Speno said, “we terminated the deal when Scripta could not provide us with documented consent by the Vatican.”
