A KSTP/Survey USA poll released Monday shows that, in the Blue State of Minnesota, five of the major Republican presidential candidates are currently beating all but certain Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. It should not even be close in Minnesota. In 2008, President Obama beat John McCain 54% to 44%. In 2012, Obama beat Mitt Romney by +8 points. If the election were held today, Clinton would lose to…
Trump: 42% to 45%.
Carson: 41% to 50%
Rubio: 41% to 47%
Fiorina: 41% to 45%
Bush: 43% to 44%
Only Ted Cruz would lose to Clinton, by 46% to 41%.
In the Minnesota Republican primary, Trump leads the pack by +7 points. The billionaire businessman earns 26% support. Carson is second with 19%. Rubio sits at 16%. Everyone else is in single digits.
Weighing Clinton down is Obama’s abysmal job approval rating, which is upside-down -19 points: 37% approve, 56% disapprove.
The poll doesn’t appear to be skewed in favor of Republicans. Democrat Senator Al Franken enjoys a healthy job approval rate of 55%, compared to just 37% who disapprove.
If you’re wondering why the racially-motivated DC Media is using innuendo and outright lies to attack Ben Carson’s character, his +9 victor over Clinton in Minnesota should answer that.
