Another Wave?

Could there be another wave election brewing? Maybe. Minnesota may be in play.

Snark aside, this looks like a relatively solid poll.  The sample is D+5, with a D/R/I of 38/33/29.  In 2008 when Obama won by 10 points, it was D+4 at 40/36/22, and I suspect that Republicans are going to be more motivated this time around. Obama wins the core counties in the Twin Cities, but only by a relatively weak 57/35.  Romney wins the Metro suburbs with a majority 51/39 and edges Obama 46/44 in the rest of the state.

Once again, this is all very nice. But. This is not the time to back off, slack off, let up or get cocky. Now is the time to double down. I would love to see Obama utterly routed. But that is not going to happen unless we keep pushing through.

It is interesting that Romney and Obama are moving money into Minnesota, isn’t it?

    I pledge that if Romney takes Minnesota, I will perform the unprecedented action of cracking a smile. However, I’m not too worried about having to take such drastic action. Aside from their strength in the urban areas, Minnesota Democrats cheat without guilt.

    Yeah, I know Lars. That’s how you got your junior senator, after all.
