Putting the war into Minne-sota…
(Sota in Finnish, means…war)
Folks, I agree with Mark Levin, do not worry yourselves with polls, and swing states, just get out the vote for Mitt Romney. Call your family and friends, canvass your neighborhood, volunteer to drive those who can’t drive themselves, to the voting stations. The election results will follow your actions.
LIKELY VOTER POLL: ROMNEY AHEAD IN DEEP BLUE MINNESOTA
We’ve been reporting for close to a week that Minnesota, the bluest of blue states, which has voted for the Democratic candidate in every election since 1976, is very much in play for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Today, we got statistical confirmation that is the case via an American Future Fund poll. From the polling memo:
1. The Presidential ballot in Minnesota is a dead heat.
Mitt Romney has a one point lead on the ballot (46% Romney/45% Obama.). The demographics of the state clearly make Minnesota a battleground state.
2. Mitt Romney leads Independents by double digits.
As we are seeing across the country, Romney’s lead in the state is driven by Independent voters (49% Romney/36% Obama). Due to his consistent advantage with Independents, Romney leads or is tied with the President across the battleground states – even those that traditionally lean Democratic.
The findings of this poll comport with the non-statistical campaign trends for the state. The Democrats felt it necessary to send top-surrogate Bill Clinton to the Land of 10,000 Lakes earlier this week, and Paul Ryan will be campaigning there tomorrow.
