The Des Moines Register just published a poll showing the Iowa judges race is essentially a toss up, shocking the political experts. J. Ann Selzer, the pollster for The Des Moines Register's Iowa Poll, predicted: "I think it suggests that some justices, and perhaps all, will be removed. It lines up along Democrat and Republican lines pretty easily, except for low-income voters, which is typically a Democratic constituency."
"Those poll numbers are stunning," said Brian T. Fitzpatrick, a Vanderbilt University associate law professor who has followed Iowa's retention debate. "It is virtually unheard-of for a judge to lose a retention race."
