What's wrong with Iowa

Posted By on Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 10:31 AM

This poll just about says it all on Iowa Republican voters.

Romney up 12 on Perry with evolution believers, 22 with global warming believers. Good for 2nd place.

48% of Iowa Republicans don't believe in evolution. Perry leads Romney by 17 points with them

66% of Iowa Republicans don't believe in global warming. Perry leads Romney by 15 points with them

The question is whether this is reflective of Republican politics nationally. Jon Huntsman so far doesn't seem to be getting far with his counter-intuitive support for science.

Why did this happen? What's next for the party? What's next for the state?

    The future of the old Highway 79 bridge at Clarendon is uncertain, but it's a good thing the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department jump the gun on demolishing it.  That's because the new bridge at Clarendon — or at least the western approach, which is elevated over U.S. Fish and Wildlife wetlands — is snakebit.

    It was just a little over a year ago when Baker Kurrus was hired as the superintendent of the Little Rock School District. With new Education Commissioner Johnny Key there was a strong concern that the Little Rock school system would be converted to all charter schools and the entire public education system would disappear.
