Iowa passed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the industrialized world – and some think the state has moved too far to the right
Linda Madison is exactly the sort of voter Donald Trump relied on to win in the 2016 election. A 64-year-old Lutheran who lives in a small town in Iowa’s rural south-western corner, she was once a fervent Democrat. She even campaigned for one-time Democratic presidential contender John Edwards.
But, she began to feel Democrats lost their way, and switched parties. She and the two men she was chatting with in a parking lot in Atlantic, Iowa, all think Trump is doing pretty well. The stock market is rising, talks with North Korea could work out, Trump hasn’t messed up too badly, they said.
