We’re nearing the end of the announcement phase for most key races in Iowa for 2018. At this point most of the announced or exploring or “considering it” candidates are known, so I thought it’d be a good time to kick off a series of Starting Line polls.
Throughout this year and next, we’ll run polls once or twice a month on various races, issues and random fun Iowa politics stuff. Share these posts with your friends and encourage them to vote!
And if you want to make sure you hear about each new Starting Line poll, sign up for our email list at this link.
This week we’ll be polling the Iowa Governor, 1st and 3rd Congressional races. The two candidates in the 4th District are just getting underway, so we’ll wait a month or two for that one. All polls are randomized in the order the candidates’ names show up, and the poll should prevent people from voting multiple times. Obviously, these aren’t scientific polls. [Edit 8/4: Alright, after getting 5,000 additional votes in the gubernatorial poll in just an hour on Thursday evening, I’m closing the poll. Next time I’ll be using a polling service with better security features.]
First up, Iowa Governor:
The 1st Congressional District:
And the 3rd Congressional District:
Now go share this post with your friends and encourage them to vote as well! And sign up for our email list if you haven’t already!
