Skip to comments.Poll: 64% of Iowans think it's time for Chuck Grassley to retire
Posted on 06/21/2021 3:25:37 AM PDT by cotton1706
A new poll published over the weekend indicates that 64% of those surveyed believe it's "time for someone else" to occupy Sen. Chuck Grassley's (R-Iowa) Senate seat, the Des Moines Register reports.
Why it matters: Grassley hasn't said yet whether he plans to seek re-election in 2022, but with an evenly divided Senate, "Iowa's race is one of the most closely watched" in the country, according to Politico.

Time to retire, Chuck.
Coming from USAToday, my underlying presumption is that there is a nefarious agenda for this to come out at this moment in time.
I can’t say what it is; only that I do not trust the enemedia, and my first gut reaction is to support the opposite of anything the left suggests.
He ain’t much but for a Uniparty (R) senator, he’s a friggin’ superstar. Guaranteed to get a lesser man if he’s replaced by a another Uniparty (R) candidate. A new, young senator would immediately begin to barter off the position to set his family up for generations. Due to his age and wealth I think Grassley votes his conscience more than any new Uniparty candidate would. Keep him until he drops.
Got into the the Iowa House of Representatives in 1959. Worked in government all his life. This is his 62nd year. Time to hang it up.
There are several good replacements for Senator Grassley, I am sure. And every one of them is a Republican.
Iowa is not so “purple” as to make the likelihood of replacement of Senator Grassley with a Democrat (the gang that can’t count straight) a very strong one. But whoever is going to go to bat will have to be getting into the practice box pretty quickly.
He’s been a pig at the trough long enough...longer than Jao Beijing. There must be some yutes in I owe ah.
Will just note that if Congress ‘Rats go down (Pelousy/Shoomer), Grassley is essentially 3rd in line of POTUS succession, with a non-NBC 2nd.
If 64% think he should retire how did he win re-election?
No. Have more confidence that people like DJT will vet a winning candidate to allow Grassley an honorable retirement from the U.S. Senate.
If republican voters in Iowa think he should go, and he has to face a primary in 2022, then the answer is pretty simple: nominate a MAGA challenger.
“If 64% think he should retire how did he win re-election?”
Because the D alternative, like every D, would have been a disaster.
Grasley lost control of the judiciary committee. He was befuddled. Time for a strong conservative.
Grassley is still better than Ernst
Grassley is still better than Ernst
My only worry is that while Grassley is old and not a strong conservative (although he’s a reasonably reliable conservative), he’s lightyears ahead of Ernst. With Grassley retiring, not only do we risk another Ernst, but there are no guarantees a Republican would win (although 2022 is probably going to be a favorable year for Republicans)
He constituency of Civil War vets must be shrinking.
a new poll published by the DM Register. Agenda?
It’s the ACU rating. If it’s high keep Ernst. A cowardly quote now and then is ok. If the yearly rating goes down and then goes up election time that should settle it. Didn’t with too many others.
You’d be hard pressed to find a more dedicated representative.
Be suspicious of ANY “poll” published in the Register.
