Trafalgar Group survey released Thursday revealed that Donald Trump and Democrat nominee Joe Biden are neck-and-neck in the critical state of Minnesota — bad news for Biden, who has been losing steam in the polls for weeks now.
Conducted August 15-18 among 1,141 likely general election voters, the survey found that President Trump takes 46.5 percent of the vote, while Biden holds on to 46.9 percent.
Roughly 4% of Minnesotans said they would vote for Libertarian Party candidate Jo Jorgensen. Less than two percent of the state’s voters are undecided.
Minnesota has voted blue in every presidential election since 1976. With less than three months to go until election day, the forecast isn’t good for Biden.
The Trafalgar survey isn’t the only poll delivering bad news to Democrat strategists. According to a Rassmussen survey released on Wednesday, Biden’s once-commanding lead in the polls has collapsed to just four points, with 48 percent of respondents choosing Biden, and 44 percent picking Trump.
Biden’s lead shrank two points since the last Rassmussen survey, a trend that doesn’t bode well for Biden.
