NYT Upshot released the results of a new poll, in which respondents from Iowa were asked for whom they will vote: Republican Donald Trump or Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Historically, Iowa has been a purple state, in which no single party has had overwhelming support to secure its electoral college votes. Therefore, forecasts here are of particular value.
