Fl, IA Polls: Gov/Senate Numbers

IA Culver (D)

A new Des Moines Register poll “revealed some reservations” by Iowans about Gov. Chet Culver (D) as he looks toward mounting a 2010 campaign for a second term. 

Just 35% said they would definitely vote to re-elect Culver, while 28% said they would consider an alternative and 18% said they would definitely vote for someone else.

By comparison, in the 2010 U.S. Senate race, 47% said they would definitely vote for Sen. Charles Grassley next year, with 29% saying they would consider an alternative, and 8% definitely voting for someone else.


A new Mason-Dixon poll shows that Florida CFO Alex Sink (D) and Attorney General Bill McCollum (R) are essentially tied in a potential race for Florida Governor in 2010. Sinks gets 35% support and McCollum gets 36%. 

Meanwhile, in the U.S. Senate race, 67% percent of Florida voters would ‘consider’ or ‘definitely’ vote for Gov. Charlie Crist (R) if he decides to run.

Note: Congressman Mac took himself out of the running for Senate Seat this week and backed Crist
