Team Biden blindsided by this blue state threatening to upend their entire campaign

Minnesota has been a stronghold for Democrats for half a century.

But if recent trends continue, their continued dominance may not be a foregone conclusion.

Now the North Star State’s latest polling shows ample reason for Team Biden to be very afraid.

Minnesota last voted for a Republican presidential candidate in 1972 when Richard Nixon won a 49-state and 23 percentage point national landslide.

For decades the state easily voted for Democrats in every presidential election.

But now there is some data to suggest the state may be becoming more competitive.

In 2016, as Donald Trump won his surprise victory over Hillary Clinton, the race in Minnesota was tantalizingly close, closer than political pundits expected.

In the final count, only 44,000 votes separated Trump from Clinton, a margin of about 1 1/2 %.

Now, amid Joe Biden’s campaign stumbles, Republicans are feeling better about their chances here.

New information suggests they have a good reason for optimism.

The “blue wall” may be crumbling again

A new poll conducted for KSTP by polling outfit Survey USA showed a two-point race between Trump and Biden — 44 percent for Biden and 42 percent for Trump. 

 

The poll showed that 9% of voters remain undecided.

This marks a change from February when Biden led Trump by 4 points. 

Because Biden’s lead is within the survey’s ± 4.3 percent margin of error, the race is a virtual tie.

Digging deeper into the survey shows that the candidates are tied among independent voters with 36 percent support each. 

Trump is leading Biden in Southern Minnesota, Western Minnesota, and Northeast Minnesota. 

But Biden holds the advantage in the Twin Cities.

This isn’t the only poll to show a close race in the state.

Also, this month, a McLaughlin & Associates survey showed Trump leading Biden by three points in Minnesota.

Donald Trump has made it clear that he plans to contest the state.

Trump: “We’re going to put a heavy move into Minnesota. I promise.”

In an interview with KNSI radio, he said, “It’s not, like, in my opinion, that blue. We’re going to put a heavy move into Minnesota. I promise.”

Trump’s campaign is competing strongly in some traditionally blue states, including New York, New Jersey, Virginia, New Mexico, and Minnesota.

The former attracted a crowd of roughly 100,000 supporters for his rally in Wildwood, New Jersey last Saturday.

This was said to be the largest crowd on record for a political rally in the state.

Pollster Jim McLaughlin said on The Chris Salcedo Show of the New Jersey rally, “People were thinking we would have 40,000, maybe 50,000, which would have been an unbelievable number, but … I’ve talked to people on the ground. I’ve talked to some law enforcement folks I know down there. They told me they thought it was well over 100,000 people.”

He continued, “They had never seen anything like it. … If you ever get the chance to go, you have to go to one of these things. It is like a cross between a rock concert, a carnival, a football game down south. It is just unbelievable. And the best thing about it are the people that are there.”

Trump is scheduled to headline the Minnesota Republican Party’s Lincoln Reagan dinner on Friday.
