Poll: Branstad ahead by 19 points

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A new Des Moines Register poll shows Republican candidate and former governor Terry Branstad has a 19-point lead on Governor Chet Culver.

52-percent of those surveyed say they support Branstad, while 33-percent prefer Culver.

The poll was taken from September 19th to the 22nd, after Culver began airing an ad saying he has made mistakes as governor, but has still accomplished a lot.

Only 35-percent of the 800 people surveyed approved of Culver's performance in office.
