A new poll commissioned by the American Future Fund (AFF) and conducted by American Viewpoint finds Congressman Steve King (R-IA) leading challenger Christie Vilsack by a 48% to 41% margin.  The poll was conducted on September 23rd and 24th, with a margin of error of +/- 4.9%.

In the poll, both King and Vilsack hold similar favorability ratings and are very well known by the electorate; however, among those with opinions of both candidates – nearly 80% of the electorate – King leads 50% to 44%.  And among those more interested in the election, Congressman King expands his lead to 52% to 40%.

Most notable, among those who are prepared to split their tickets between the Presidential and Congressional race, King leads 45% to 36%.

“Congressman King has done a tremendous job of representing the people of Iowa, and this poll validates that he is the candidate whose vision and agenda is best received by the people of the district,” said AFF founder Nick Ryan.  “Congressman King has a strong record focused on economic freedom and individual liberty, and this message is clearly resonating with his constituents.”
