Bloomberg/Des Moines Register Poll Describes Romance Between Iowa and Trump

New polling data assesses likely Iowa caucus-goers' feelings about Donald Trump's strengths. In particular they believe his "immigration plan" (or maybe better, "deportation plan") is a great idea, despite some nagging questions. It's a great summer romance - breathless excitement over the flashy new guy with the convertible, the one who eclipses the old stodgy boyfriend who can't go out Friday night because he has a shift at Walmart.

The numbers offer yet another explanation for why Trump has surged ahead in Iowa and nationally, even if he has yet to provide many details on how his proposed mass deportation would work. It would cost between $400 billion to $600 billion and it would take 20 years to remove those immigrants living in the country illegally, according to the conservative-leaning American Action Forum.
