A recent poll from the American Future Fund rates Minnesota, the only state not to vote for Ronald Reagan in 1984 as a “toss-up“, with Mitt Romney enjoying a one point edge:
Romney takes 46 percent of the vote to Obama’s 45 percent in the poll, which was conducted by the GOP firm NMB Research and shared with POLITICO. The Republican presidential nominee is up 13 points among independents, ahead of Obama 49 percent to 36 percent.
That is consistent with what we’ve seen in polls across the nation, Romney enjoying a leading among independents. Given Obama’s negative closing message — and Romney’s upbeat one – it seems that those yet to decide are more likely to break for the challenger.
