Congressman David Young (R-Iowa) leads his Democratic challenger, Jim Mower, in a new poll taken of likely voters in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District race.
Young leads among a plurality of voters – 45% to Mower’s 32%. However, 23% of voters are undecided. Young leads among conservatives polled – 78% to 11% with 11% undecided. Mower leads among those who self-identify as moderates – 41% to 32% with 27% undecided. Unsurprisingly Mower leads among self-identified liberals – 68% to 8%. What is surprising, however, is that 24% of liberal voters say they are undecided.
The poll also indicates his greatest strength is among men 55 or older, leading Mower 50% to 34% with that group. He also leads among men age 18-54 by a 45% to 28% margin. He also has advantage among women age 18-54 by a 42% to 30% margin. He only leads Mower by two points among women 55 and above.
If I were Young, as an incumbent Congressman, be very concerned by the high number of undecided voters there are at this point in the race.
