Poll: Franken 39, Coleman 36, Barkley 18

The latest Star Tribune Minnesota poll is out and still shows a dead heat in the race for U.S. Senate. Compared to the same poll two weeks ago, the race is tightening. Like that means anything.

Most recent poll: Al Franken 39 percent Sen. Norm Coleman 36 percent Dean Barkley 18 percent

The poll was conducted Thursday and Friday with 1,049 voters and a 3.8 percent margin of error.

Two weeks ago, the poll showed Franken leading Coleman by 9 percent.
