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.”

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts
After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.
Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”
National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”
Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.
National Review reports:
“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.
He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
