Green Party nominee Jill Stein will be in Minnesota this week

She'll speak at Macalester College Wednesday.

Jill Stein is coming back to Minnesota.

The Green Party candidate will speak at Macalester College in St. Paul Wednesday night. FBI Whistleblower Coleen Rowley, Green Minneapolis Councilmember Cameron Gordon, and St. Paul Black Lives Matter activist Trahern Ausar Crews will also speak, the Facebook event by the Green Party of Minnesota says.

The event is being held at the John B. Davis Lecture Hall, where space is limited. Doors will open to the public at 7 p.m. – seating is first come, first serve.

Stein was last in Minnesota in mid-August, when she spoke at a Neighborhoods Organizing for Change forum. She told the hundreds of people in attendance she wanted to address racial disparities across the country and end police brutality of black Americans.

Some of her major issues include pushing for a single-payer health care system, a shift to renewable energy sources, $15 national minimum wage, free college education, and cuts in military spending.

Stein and the polls

About 2 percent of those polled in Minnesota and the United States support Stein, according to recent polls. Here are some of them:

KSTP-SurveyUSA poll released in late September shows 2 percent of Minnesotans support Stein, while 6 percent support Libertarian Gary Johnson, 39 percent back Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton leads with 46 percent.

Similar polling is reflected in RealClear Politics average poll, which shows 2 percent of Americans support Stein, 6.1 percent are behind Johnson, 39.2 percent support Trump and 45 percent back Clinton.

A new ABC News tracking poll released Sunday shows Stein with 2 percent, Johnson with 5 percent, Trump with 38 percent and Clinton with 50 percent.
