Aside from the Iowa Poll I wrote about yesterday morning, there’s some other new polling data of note yesterday and today:
* There’s another poll of IA-SEN, from PPP, and though it doesn’t show Republican Joni Ernst with as big a lead as the Selzer poll for the Register, she is up by 2 points among LVs, precisely where PPP had the race a month ago.
* There are three separate polls out of MA, all confirming that Democrat Martha Coakley is in a red-hot race with Charlie Baker (i.e., it’s not a figment of the Boston Globe‘s imagination). They’re from Western New England University (Baker up 47/46 among LVs); Suffolk/Boston Herald (Coakley up 44/43 among “very” LVs); and UMass/WBZ (Baker up 46/45 among LVs).
* There’s a rare poll of the Alaska governor’s race, from Rasmussen, showing independent Bill Walker leading incumbent Republican Sean Parnell 47/42 among LVs.
* And there was some interesting new polling from CNN/ORC of LA, showing Mary Landrieu leading Republican John Cassidy 43/40 among LV’s for the first round of the “jungle primary,” but trailing by three (50/47) in a runoff. Interestingly, among RVs the poll had Landrieu up 10 in the first round and actually winning the runoff, showing how important GOTV’s going to be in that race.
