Polk County (IA) 2018 Midterm margin beat the 2008 and 2012 Presidential margins!

"35,009. Thatís how many more Democratic than Republican votes came out of Polk County for the Governorís race on Tuesday night. Itís the highest margin from Polk County in our history. Although it wasnít enough to overcome numbers in the rest of the state, it blew the doors off our historical numbers for both gubernatorial races AND presidential years. That means we even beat the margins that President Barack Obama carried Polk County with in both 2008 and 2012
Polk County Democratic Margin Over Republicans (Presidential or Gubernatorial)
2018: 35,009 (gubernatorial)
2016: 26,312 (presidential)
2014: -8,586 (gubernatorial)
2012: 32,369 (presidential)
2010: -538 (gubernatorial)
2008: 31,316 (presidential)
2006: 21,075 (gubernatorial)
2004: 9,390 (presidential)
2002: 20,377 (gubernatorial)
2000: 9,688 (presidential)"

I'm so proud of our Polk county Dems.
