Eleventh in a series interpreting the results of Iowa’s 2018 state and federal elections.
If you'd told me before the election that Rs would win an average of 83% of Trump's '16 votes in contested House races, I would've told you they were probably on track to keep their majority.
But Dems are averaging 93% of Clinton's totals & are on track for a 40-seat rout.
