MN POLL: Obama 48, McCurmudgeon 38

MPR poll: Obama leads, but contest is fluid
by Tim Pugmire, Minnesota Public Radio
August 21, 2008

The results of a new Minnesota Public Radio and University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute poll show Democrat Barack Obama leading Republican John McCain in the state by 10 percentage points. But the poll indicates the race is still very fluid. It suggests McCain could close the gap, and possibly win in Minnesota, if he picks Gov. Tim Pawlenty as his running mate.

St. Paul, Minn. The telephone survey, sponsored by MPR and the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, interviewed 763 likely voters last week and early this week.

Forty-eight percent said they support Democrat Barack Obama for president, compared to 38 percent for Republican John McCain. Three percent favored independent Ralph Nader and 1 percent supported Libertarian Bob Barr.

The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

Larry Jacobs, director of the Humphrey Institute's Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, said despite the double-digit margin, the race in Minnesota remains fluid. Jacobs said 10 percent of those polled were undecided, and supporters of each candidate said they might change their minds.
