A Quin­nipi­ac Uni­versity poll shows Rep. Bruce Bra­ley (D) lead­ing state Sen. Joni Ernst (R) 44% to 40%. The crosstabs show a gender gap, where wo­men back Bra­ley 47% to 36%, and men back Ernst 44% to 40%.

Voters in­dic­ated that they thought Bra­ley would do a bet­ter job than Ernst on is­sues in­clud­ing the eco­nomy and jobs, the new fed­er­al health care law, im­mig­ra­tion, same-sex mar­riage, the en­vir­on­ment, the min­im­um wage, help­ing the middle class, and gun con­trol.

Ernst, they said, would do a bet­ter help­ing farm­ers and on gov­ern­ment spend­ing (June 12-16, 1,277 RVs, +/- 2.7%). (Des Moines Re­gister)

EN­DORSE­MENTS: The Na­tion­al Right to Life Com­mit­tee is back­ing Ernst.

“As a state sen­at­or, Joni Ernst has been an out­spoken lead­er in the fight to pro­tect in­no­cent hu­man life in Iowa,” said Car­ol To­bi­as, Na­tion­al Right to Life pres­id­ent in a state­ment. “Joni Ernst will bring her re­cord of strong pro-life lead­er­ship to the U.S. Sen­ate.” (re­lease)
