Iowa Democrat Rita Hart decided this week to withdraw her challenge to her defeat in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District last year. Her six-vote loss to Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks capped off a successful year for Iowa Republicans who won the presidential race, Senate race and three of four House races in the state in 2020.

The district lines that decade were slightly more favorable to Democrats in terms of White non-college graduates (i. e. the district ranked 76th out of 435), but education mattered far less to how people voted.

Non-college White voters wanted no part of voting Democratic in 2020 House races, regardless of their income levels.

White voters without a college degree favored Republicans by about a 26-point margin, if their family income was below the median.

The House margin among all White respondents shifted by 5 points toward the Democrats, when their family income was above the median compared to below.

White voters without a college degree actually favored Democrats by a 3-point margin, if their family income was below the median.

In fact among all White respondents, the Democrats' margin increased by 14 points depending on whether their family income was below or above the median.
