Sixty-seven percent of Iowa’s Republican voters say they would “definitely” vote for President Donald Trump if the 2020 elections were held today, a key figure considering the state’s pivotal role in past elections, according to a new CNN poll.
Iowa is the first state in the presidential nominating process and the caucuses serve as an early indication of who might win the nomination at the national conventions.
Trump won Iowa in 2016 with 51.1 percent of the vote, carrying the state by the largest margin of any Republican candidate since Ronald Reagan in 1980.
Additionally, the poll found:
- 63 percent say the Republican Party of Iowa should welcome challengers to compete at the caucuses
- 81 percent approve of the job Trump is doing
- 54 percent blame congressional Republicans for the party’s recent midterm losses
- 72 percent say the president has made a mistake in posting potentially inflammatory messages on Twitter on a regular basis
- 83 percent say it was a good move to send military troops to the southern border to respond to the caravan of migrants making its way across Mexico
- 43 percent say they feel more of an allegiance to the Republican Party compared to 37 percent who say they feel more of an allegiance to Trump
