According to a new Des Moines Register/Selzer and Co. poll from Iowa likely voters has President Donald Trump leading Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by a 48% to 41% margin.
The average poll in Iowa has Trump up by 2 points.
However, pundits have viewed this poll as an outlier as Biden is deemed the firm favorite in polling to remove President Trump from the White House.
Biden leads in the swing states necessary to get 270 electoral votes, and those leads are wider than the ones Hillary Clinton had four years ago.
The Selzer poll, though an exception, should give the Biden team reason to pause.
Four years ago, the final Selzer poll had Trump up by an identical 7 points in Iowa. Trump won by 9 points.
If this poll is correct, Trump could be sitting on a gold mine unbeknown to all and sundry.
The candidates last campaign bouts in coming days spell their closing arguments, and we could be in for a much closer race than first anticipated.
