Democrats have a big edge among early voters, but according to Gray their lead is smaller than it was in 2004, when George W. Bush carried Iowa by 0.7 percentage points.

Rasmussen’s last Iowa poll, conducted on September 19, 2012, had GOP nominee Mitt Romney running three points ahead of President Barack Obama.

    Great News, I’m Hopeful, maybe. A lot of republicans and independants, and Demorates (that are concerned about this country) still need to vote. We need the largest turnout in history, so they can’t cheat!

      They’ll still cheat :-/ hopefully they get caught, though!

    Good news, indeed! I saw reports where North Carolina and Florida early balloting had Republicans leading Democrats, as well.
