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.
Women apparently still love Franken. A lot:
Among the poll's most interesting findings is the gender gap that has opened in Franken's favor. Coleman has a slight, three percentage point lead among men, but Franken now has a potentially decisive nine-point lead among women.
