A new survey from Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling (D) released Thursday shows President Barack Obama remains a safe bet to carry Minnesota in November.
In the statewide poll, conducted May 31-June 3, Obama holds a big lead over Mitt Romney among Minnesota voters, 54-percent to 39-percent. Democrats have won Minnesota in every presidential election since 1972, and the results of Thursday's poll indicate that the state will likely not be a battleground in 2012.
From Dean Debnam, President of PPP:
“Minnesota is not going to be a swing state this fall. Barack Obama’s standing is very solid there right now and it was one of Mitt Romney’s weakest states during the GOP primary season.”
The TPM Poll Average also shows Obama with a sizable lead over Romney in the North Star State.
