Iowa Youth Straw Poll results

DES MOINES – Secretary of State Paul Pate’s Iowa Youth Straw Poll was a resounding success with more than 57,000 students from more than 250 schools across the state participating. Most of the schools cast their ballots on November 1.

"I think it was a great opportunity for them to see first-hand how the process works. It also gives them a running start for the next election cycle and also receive a little tutoring at the same time, so they’ll have a good base of knowledge for Iowa’s elections process," Secretary Pate said. "I hope this fired them up and will also spur them to encourage their parents, neighbors and friends to get out and vote."

Here are the statewide results as of 6:45 p.m. Tuesday night, listing only candidates that received at least five percent of the vote total:

U.S. PRESIDENT
Donald Trump-46%
Hillary Clinton-36%
Gary Johnson-7%

U.S. SENATE
Charles Grassley-62%
Patty Judge-25%
