Poll: Both Pawlenty And Bachmann Would Lose Minnesota In General Election


Obama leads all the other Republicans who were tested, as well: 54%-36% against Newt Gingrich, 56%-36% against Sarah Palin, 51%-36% against Mitt Romney, and 51%-30% against Herman Cain.

It should be noted that Obama won Minnesota by a 54%-44% margin in 2008, and the state has not voted Republican for president since the landslide re-election of Richard Nixon in 1972. And it does not appear that either Pawlenty or Bachmann are well-equipped to change that situation.

The survey of registered Minnesota voters was conducted from May 27-30, and has a 2.9% margin of error.
