Your Local Election HQ

(KCAU) – KCAU is partnering once again with our sister station WHO for Nexstar Iowa’s Red American, Blue American (RABA) Research Poll. The results for today will focus on approval numbers for Gov. Kim Reynolds.

By a tight margin, the results show Iowans, 44 percent, disapprove of Reynold’s leadership, but accounting for the poll’s 4 point margin of error, it’s a tie.

Interestingly, 14 percent of Iowans aren’t sure whether or not they support Gov. Reynolds.

Looking at Reynold’s approval ratings by voter affiliation, the numbers are divided largely down party lines.

75 percent of Republicans support her and 80 percent of Democrats disapprove of her actions.

The poll also asked Iowans whether they wear a mask in public.

85 percent of Iowans said they do, at least sometimes, while around 15 percent said they rarely or never wear a mask in public.

The poll also shows Democrats are more likely to wear a mask all the time, with 79 percent of Democrats saying they would, compared to 45 percent of Republicans agreeing with mask use.

15 percent of Republicans said they never wear a mask in public, where just three percent of Democrats say they are living mask free.

The second Nexstar Iowa 2020 RABA Research Poll was conducted from October 21-24, 2020 via a cell phone and landline survey. 693 Iowans were polled. The margin of error for the results is +/-4 percent.
