New poll calls Iowa Senate race a dead heat

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Two polls tell different stories about a big U.S. Senate race in Iowa.

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Monday morning shows Republican Joni Ernst tied with Democrat Bruce Braley with 47% each, in a survey of likely voters. Four percent are still undecided.

That's a boost for Braley who trailed 49-45% in a Quinnipiac survey released last week.

The results also differ greatly from the most recent Des Moines Register poll, which has Ernst ahead by seven percentage points, 51-44.
