Mike Glover talked about Iowa’s “swing” state status in the 2012 presidential election, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communication. Topics included the economy, early voting in Iowa, top campaign issues, the significance of newspaper endorsements, and Iowa’s voter demographics.

“Swing” states are those in which either both major political parties have a strong chance of winning a state’s electoral college votes. As a result both Republican and Democrats campaign more heavily in those states because they represent the best chances to gain electoral votes. 

This was part six of a “Washington Journal” series on the ten “swing” or “battleground” states in the 2012 election: Florida, Nevada, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Ohio. close
