ELECTIONS

  • Iowa Senate: Ernst (R) 43%, Braley (D) 43%

    The Iowa Senate race remains dead even.

    Iowa continues to be a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports 2014 Senate Balance of Power rankings as it has been since June. At stake is the seat held by retiring Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, and Republicans view a win in the state as critical to their hopes of taking control of the Senate.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

  • Kansas Senate: Orman (I) 45%, Roberts (R) 40%

    The Kansas Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that Democrat Chad Taylor's name should be removed from the ballot, clearing up a situation that could have potentially changed the outcome of the state's U.S. Senate race this November.

    Taylor earlier this month withdrew from the race, but the state's Republican secretary of State refused to allow his name to be taken off the ballot. Rasmussen Reports' latest statewide telephone survey of Likely Kansas Voters taken just prior to the court ruling shows how that might have played out.

    With Taylor still on the ballot, incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts picks up 39% of the vote, while Independent candidate Greg Orman has 38% support. Taylor earns nine percent (9%). Two percent (2%) say they prefer some other candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
