Star Tribune gov poll: Dayton holds lead in governor’s race
The latest poll in the Minnesota governor’s race shows DFL nominee and former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton holding on to a lead in the three-way contest.
The Star Tribune Minnesota poll showed Dayton with the lead at 41 percent, followed by GOP candidate Tom Emmer at 34 percent, and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner at 13 percent.
The poll surveyed 999 likely voters in the state between Oct. 18 and 21 using both land-line and cell phones. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
The same poll in late September showed Dayton with 39 percent, Emmer with 30 percent and Horner coming in at 18 percent support.
