Trump Surges +8 in Iowa

Donald Trump now has an 8 point lead over Hillary Clinton in the battle for Iowa's electoral votes, according to the Monmouth University Poll .  He held a slimmer 2 point edge in July.  In the race for U.S. Senate, incumbent Chuck Grassley maintains a double digit advantage over Democratic challenger Patty Judge.
Among Iowa voters likely to participate in November's presidential election, 45% currently support Trump and 37% back Clinton.  Another 8% intend to vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson, 2% say they will support Green Party candidate Jill Stein, 2% say they will vote for another candidate, and 6% are undecided.  Trump's current standing is similar to his 44% share two months ago, but Clinton has lost support since July when she had a 42% vote share.

Johnson in 2012. Johnson is currently being pumped up
in polls by the open borders wing of the GOP.

Among self-identified Republicans, 81% support Trump, which is down from 87% in July.  Clinton has improved her standing among Democrats from 86% two months ago to 91% in the current poll.  Trump has been able to increase his overall lead, though, by improving his share of the independent vote.  He now leads Clinton 44% to 29% among independents, compared to a much narrower 39% to 35% edge he had in July.
Turning to the Hawkeye State's U.S. Senate race, six-term incumbent Chuck Grassley has nearly doubled his prior lead over former Lieutenant Governor Patty Judge.  The race now stands at 56% for Grassley and 39% for Judge, with 2% supporting other candidates and 3% who are undecided.  The incumbent held a 52% to 42% lead in Monmouth's July poll.
