Sen. Franken (D) up by at least 6

 By: Mark Warner 08 (I-AUT) on 2014-06-15 @ 03:36:03


In the Republican Primary for US Senate, Mike McFadden is at 44%, Jim Abeler is at 16%. 40% choose some other candidate, or are undecided. The winner will face Franken 11/04/14.

In hypothetical November match-ups for US Senator, Franken like Dayton may have his hands full. Today it's:

* Franken 48%, McFadden 42%. Franken by 6.
* Franken 48%, Abeler 39%. Franken by 9.

Independence Party candidate Kevin Terrell is a factor, at 4% to 6% of the vote ... and 10% to 12% of the vote among Independents. Franken holds 90% of the DFL base against both McFadden and Abeler. But Abeler is less palatable to MN Independents.

68% of MN voters disapprove of a new $77 million building to provide new offices for the Minnesota Senate. 18% approve.

MN adults by 5:4 say that a light-rail system that will connect Minneapolis and St Paul is not worth the $957 million in taxes it cost to build. 51% say the transit connecting Minneapolis to St Paul is not worth the money; 40% say it is worth the cost. Of those who live in the counties the light rail serves, 6% say they will use transit regularly, 28% say they will use it occasionally, 65% they will almost never use light rail.

Of the registered, 1,017 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote in the 11/04/14 general election, 404 were determined to be likely to vote in the 08/12/14 primary election. Of the adults, 1,177 live in Greater Minneapolis and were asked how often they will ride light rail. This research was conducted using blended sample, mixed mode. Respondents reachable on a home telephone were interviewed on their home telephone in the recorded voice of a professional announcer.
