Poll Shows Tight Minnesota Governor's RaceA new poll by Minnesota Public Radio and the Humphrey Institute shows the governor's race is tight for the two main party candidates.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A new poll by Minnesota Public Radio and the Humphrey Institute shows the governor's race is tight for the two main party candidates.
Democrat Mark Dayton and Republican Tom Emmer are even with 34 percent support in the telephone survey of 750 likely Minnesota voters. Independence Party candidate Tom Horner garnered 13 percent support from likely voters.
With about two months before the general election, many Minnesotans are still undecided on who should replace Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty. Nearly 20 percent of those polled haven't decided or don't want to say who they're supporting.
Pollsters interviewed the likely voters last Wednesday through Sunday. The poll has a margin of error of 5.3 percentage points.
