Klobuchar versus? 2012 Minnesota U.S. Senate poll coming …

Even though Election 2010 isn’t over, Public Policy Polling plans to survey Minnesota about the 2012 Senate race this weekend.

Even though Election 2010 isn’t over, Public Policy Polling plans to survey Minnesota about the 2012 Senate race this weekend. Pollster Tom Jensen also wants to know “if Tim Pawlenty’s bad week had any effect on his numbers in the state.”

Amy Klobuchar is up for re-election; Jensen is looking for readers to nominate opponents. I suggested the obvious one – Michele Bachmann — as well as Pawlenty. He’s also looking for other questions to ask, so this is a chance for you to do something other than answer questions.

By the way, PPP polled Minnesota once this past election cycle, and its late-October number was good, giving Mark Dayton a 3-point gubernatorial lead over Tom Emmer. The poll’s proprietors are Democrats, but overall, PPP is ranked highly by reviewers such as FiveThirtyEight.com.
