23. How many more facts about Iowa do you need before you realize it is not a swing state?

 

The governor and both Senators are Republican.

Both chambers of the state legislature are Republican (the State Senate easily so) after the blue wave election in 2018.

As mentioned above, the state is whiter, older and more rural than the national average, let alone the average of core blue states.

Iowa is not a swing state. It should not be the first in the nation to vote during primary season. The eventual Dem nominee should not spend one second or one dollar in the state once the primary is over because it is a safely red state in November 2020.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
