A just-released Cygnal group survey of the Minnesota electorate (7/18-19; 500 MN likely general election voters; live interview & text) sees Gov. Tim Walz (D) leading presumed Republican nominee Scott Jensen, a physician and former state Senator, but only by a few percentage points. According to the Cygnal poll, Dr. Jensen trails the Governor by a tight 50-46% margin. The Minnesota primary is Tuesday, but Dr. Jensen faces only minor Republican opposition by virtue of his state party convention victory earlier in the year.
The Cygnal poll found Gov. Walz with a 49:45% favorability rating and Dr. Jensen scored a 32:24% positive index. President Biden’s rating is an upside down 42:56% positive to negative ratio. Within the polling universe, 43% believe Minnesota is on the right track, while 48% feel the state has veered in the wrong direction.
