MN: Slight Kerry Lead

Posted by DavidNYC

It's been a while since we've seen any polling out of Minnesota, a state which the Bushies allegedly are trying very hard to capture. So the St. Paul Pioneer Press brings some good news (no trendlines, registration required):

Kerry: 44
Bush: 41
Nader: 2
Undecided: 13
(MOE: ��4%)

Bush's approval-dissaproval stands at a dismal 44-56. (But be warned: This poll uses a "poor or fair vs. good or excellent" scheme for computing these figures, so these numbers might be a bit different - and in my guess, a bit more favorable for Bush - if they had asked a simple approve vs. disapprove.) Kerry, meanwhile, has a 43-25 approval-disapproval rating, which suggests that Bush's much-ballyhooed spending spree to drive up Kerry's negatives hasn't really taken hold, at least in MN.

(Thanks to sane democrat.)

I think the Democrats can capture Minnesota, and far-fetched as it sounds, after Wellstone's death and Al Franken's radio station, those two things can be used to lead the fight.
