(Liberty Bell) – The coronavirus may be all anyone is talking about, but we’re still in the middle of a presidential primary election.
And it’s one that’s really, really not going well for the Democrats.
A new poll out of Iowa shows the incumbent, President Donald Trump, enjoys a double-digit lead over Democratic frontrunner former Vice President Joe Biden.
The latest poll from the Des Moines Register shows that the popular, energetic and vivacious Trump is leading the incoherent, clueless, and corrupt Biden 51% to 41%.
The Gateway Pundit notes that this explosive figure was buried halfway down the page in the Register’s coverage of the poll.
According to the Register’s latest poll, Trump had a 50% approval rating in Iowa.
This was up four points from February.

The Register reported, under the laughable headline, Iowans split on President Donald Trump’s job performance in new Iowa Poll:
President Donald Trump’s approval rating among Iowans has broken even for the first time in the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll.
Fifty percent of Iowans approve of the job he’s doing as president, a 4 percentage point rise from February 2019. The milestone is buoyed by fellow Republicans (94% approval), men (60%), evangelicals (63%), rural Iowans (68%) and those making $100,000 a year or more (57%).
“That is a high-water mark in the Iowa Poll,” said J. Ann Selzer of Selzer & Co., which conducted the poll.
Selzer noted that Trump’s rise in approval ratings coincides with an increase in the number of Iowans who think the country is on the right track: At 46%, that’s another high-water mark for Trump’s presidency and the highest it has been since May 2003, when 55% of Iowans thought the country was on the right track.
