The aforementioned Suffolk University poll (see Minnesota Senate above) also test the new Governor’s race between US Rep. Tim Walz (D-Mankato) and Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson (R). The Suffolk numbers actually post Mr. Johnson in a slightly improving position when compared to the immediate post-primary polls. The new Suffolk data gives Mr. Walz a 46-41% edge. Just before the state primary, Emerson College Polling (8/8-11; 500 MN likely voters) found Walz leading Johnson, 40-33%.
