The Des Moines Register

Founded in 1849, The Des Moines Register is Iowa’s largest newspaper.  By the time it was sold to Gannett in 1985, it was second only to The New York Times in the number of Pulitzer Prizes for national reporting.

The Iowa Poll, started in 1943, is the most influential state poll, run by Ann Selzer at the Register.

The Register provides extensive coverage of Iowa caucus history, campaign and candidate news, and statewide polling.
