On Iowa governor Chet Culver’s (D) steadily-… there isn’t a good word, really. ‘Eroding’ isn’t dynamic enough and English doesn’t really have a word for the process of explosive decompression. Anyway, Jim Geraghty sums it up:
If Culver’s approval among Republicans goes any lower, it will be easier for PPP to just list the supporters individually than provide a percentage: “Culver’s approval rating has dropped from 4 percent to Floyd.”
But to be fair: Floyd will be like a rock.
PS: Terry Branstad is apparently the front-runner for that race. Sorry: this one I’m not really checked out on.
