Two recent polls in Iowa show that 60 percent disapprove of the job President Donald Trump is doing, and that 40 percent would vote Democrat in next year's midterms, the Des Moines Register reports.

That adds up to a 100 percent possibility of bad news for Iowa's three Republican congressmen, Steve King, Rod Blum and David Young. Iowa's fourth congressman is a Democrat.

In Blum's district, 47 percent of those surveyed they would vote for a Democrat vs. 29 percent who said they'd vote Republican.

"If that number is even close to accurate, then it not only confirms that this is a competitive race but that the congressman is facing a difficult race for re-election," Nathan Gonzales, an elections forecaster, told the Register.

Trump's approval rating of 40 percent in Iowa is higher than national surveys show, but it's a dubious bellweather given he won Iowa on his way to winning the election and he's only been in office 11 months.

While Trump still enjoys strong support from Republican Iowans (78 percent), his splits might not be much help to the congressmen.

The results:

  • 69 percent of women disapprove of Trump.
  • 68 percent of Iowans making less than $50,000 annually disapprove.
  • 62 percent of independents disapprove.

Democrats need to flip 24 in the House to retake the majority.
