Iowa voters may be on the verge of ending their love affair with President Obama.
Check it out:
Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst holds a lead in polls over Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley in a state Democrats once assumed they’d hold on to easily.
Now it seems possible that, if Iowa elected Ernst, it would take away the Senate’s Democratic majority from President Obama in the process.
The Hawkeye State holds a special place in Obama’s heart. His victory in the state’s caucuses in January 2008 was the rocket fuel that launched him on the path to the Democratic nomination.
That November, Iowans gave Obama their stamp of approval in the general election. Four years later, he won the state again.
