Mitt Romney Back in Iowa With Less Than A Month Left

Mitt Romney was back in Iowa this week, seemingly filled with increased confidence after new polling numbers are showing him gaining in strength after the first Presidential debate last week (you remember that debate, right? The one where he solve our federal budget woes by axing killing Big Bird and PBS, despite them being less than one percent of the budget).

Current polls have him taking the lead from President Obama in several battleground states, including Colorado and Ohio, though he continues to lag behind here in Iowa. President Obama continues to have a 2 point lead and is the likely recipient of the vast majority of the 110,000 early votes already cast in the state.

I'm both relieved that the election is drawing closer (yay for no more annoying political ads!) and concerned about the results. I still predict that Obama will win, largely because I think Republican turnout will be low as many Republicans are still not all that excited by Romney and, I suspect, perhaps more uncomfortable voting for a Mormon than they might be willing to admit to a pollster.

Have you voted yet? Do you think voter turn out will be lower this year than it was in 2008?
