An anecdotal observation about Iowa and Joe

(I'd be curious to hear Omaha Steve's take, as well as any other IA/Quad City DUers)

I live in the Omaha TV market, meaning ads for Western Iowa. I saw very few ads for Joe Biden.

I did not do any studies or formal counts, but I'd say this is the rough order of whose ads I saw most:

Bernie
Steyer
Yang
Mayor Pete (more of that in the past two weeks)
Klobuchar (mostly in the past week)

I can remember seeing Biden ads like 2-3 times in the past six weeks, and maybe twice that for Elizabeth Warren.

I saw billboards and yard signs for Tulsi, and a Farmers for Bernie sign that.

I can't speak to what was shown in Sioux City, Des Moines, or the Quads.

My take was that the Biden campaign chose to deploy resources elsewhere. Maybe a DUer in another part of Iowa saw something different.

I'm neither ready to crown Pete or Bernie, nor ready to write off Biden. I think we have a lot more campaigning and voting to do.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders

3. When I am looking around at local elections he in the St. Louis, MO area

 

I find that my yard sign poll is generally correct. The candidate or issue that has the most yard sign usually wins.
