Iowa's anger over Trump's ethanol policy gives Democrats opening

In a speech last month to farmers in Texas, President Donald Trump won applause as he talked up recent U.S. trade agreements. Iowa swung sharply to Trump’s Republicans in the 2016 presidential election, but Democrats hope anger over a relaxation of rules mandating use of ethanol by U.S. refineries could put the corn-producing state in the win column this year. “I think they haven’t solved the farmers’ problems in terms of ensuring farmers will have a consistent market for the ethanol that they produce,” said Wayne Moyer, a political science professor at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa.
