President Barack Obama has widened what may have been a once-shrinking lead in Minnesota, according to a new SurveyUSA/KSTP poll taken last week, KSTP reports. The poll puts Obama at 50 percent to Mitt Romney’s 40 percent with 10 percent undecided or supporting another candidate. Minnesotans were polled Sept. 6-9. Obama made his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention the night of Sept. 6.
Things looked better for Romney in July, when a poll suggested the Republican had cut Obama’s lead in half.
RealClearPolitics has some past poll results in an Obama-Romney matchup in Minnesota.
The New York Times blog, FiveThirtyEight, which tracks election data, also says Minnesota is still highly likely to vote for Obama and predicts an Obama win nationwide.
