Ernst Still Ahead in Iowa

Gravis Marketing survey is out with a new poll in Iowa that finds Joni Ernst (R) with a big lead over Bruce Braley (D) in the race for U.S Senate, 50% to 41%. This is great news for Ernst who has finally cracked 50% in the polls and this represents a pickup for Republicans. As it stands now, South Dakota, West Virginia and Montana were the three almost guaranteed Republican pickups. How Iowa is trending you might be able to soon add it to the list meaning Republicans will only have to pick off two close seats on election night over three. This is looking worse and worse for Democrats because polling in Alaska and Arkansas and Louisiana all look favorable to the GOP.
