DES MOINES, Iowa – The approval rate for how Gov. Kim Reynolds is handling COVID-19 in Iowa has dropped sharply since June with more Iowans disapproving of the job she’s done than approving, according to the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll.

The results were reported by the Des Moines Register Thursday morning and show 47% of Iowans disapprove of Gov. Reynolds’ job addressing the coronavirus pandemic and 44% approving. Nine-percent of Iowans responded “not sure” in the poll.

That is a 15% drop since the last Iowa Poll in June, which had 59% of Iowans approving of the governor’s job in relation to COVID-19.

The Register reports the results of the poll have been split along party lines. For respondents who identified as Republicans, 80% of them said they approve of Reynolds’ job on the issue. For those identifying as Democrats, 82% said they disapproved.
