After more than a century of being reliably Republican red, Iowa is emerging as a true blue Democratic state in presidential elections.
Between the Civil War and the late 1980s, Iowans supported Republican presidential candidate in all but five elections. However, in six of the last seven races, Iowans voted for the Democratic presidential nominee.
This year, Iowa voters favored Democratic President Barack Obama over his GOP challenger Mitt Romney by a 52 to 46 percent split. Since Ronald Reagan carried Iowa in 1984, only George W. Bush in 2004 broke the Democratic lock on Iowa presidential politics.
What about your preferences? Have they shifted over time? Do you tend to vote Democrat or Republican in presidential elections?
