Obama ahead in Minnesota

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has opened up a commanding lead in Minnesota over Republican John McCain, according to a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll.

The poll, conducted last week among 1,084 likely voters, found that 55 percent support Obama, while 37 percent back McCain.

That’s a huge difference from the last Minnesota Poll, conducted in September, which showed the race dead even, with each candidate backed by 45 percent of likely voters. The new poll shows that Obama’s surge in the state can be attributed to voters’ belief in his ability to deal with the nation’s worsening economy, his performance in the first presidential debate and an increase in the number of Minnesotans who call themselves Democrats.
