Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Minnesota (revised)

This Mason-Dixon poll of Minnesota shows that Bush is ahead, 46-44%. And this Los Angeles Times story on the Minnesota race reveals that this was "once Kerry territory," and it doesn’t even consider the Mason Dixon poll. The last Republican to take Minnesota was Nixon in 1972 (51% to McGovern’s 46%). NOTE: I edited (5:30 PM the original post in which I had made two mistakes, one stupid, one a misread of a figure. Thanks to readers Travis and Gary for pointing them out. Very sorry.

Elder Bush lost Minnesota 53-46. Check out http://www.uselectionatlas.org/USPRESIDENT/frametextj.html.

The last Republican to win MN was Nixon in ’72.

You misread the poll. first question was some fuzzy recognize avorable/unfoavorable one. Actual results are 46 - 44 Bush. Pretty good everywhere except in Heenepin County. If he can get a point of two more out of Heenepin. Its game set match I would say.

Travis and Gary: Thanks for the notes. Very stupid of me. Sorry. I fixed it.
