Iowa Senate race neck in neck between Braley, Ernst

Posted: Updated:
 IOWA (FOX 47) -- The battle in Iowa for Tom Harkin's U.S. Senate seat is neck and neck. But now Democrat Bruce Braley seems to have edged into the lead over Republican Joni Ernst.

A new survey by Public Policy Polling released today shows Braley would get 48 percent of Iowa's votes if the election was held today.
    
47 percent surveyed said they would vote for Republican challenger Joni Ernst, and five percent were "undecided."

Though Ernst is only trailing by one percent, in the same survey, 54 percent of respondents do not support her proposal to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency.
   
Only 29 percent say they would back such a move, and 17 percent said they were "not sure."
