Political blogger Blois Olson is reporting Tuesday afternoon that internal polling for DFL congressional candidate Jim Graves shows him within 2 points of incumbent Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the 6th District.
Says Olson’s blog:
“The polling memo shows Graves trailing by 2 percentage points 47 to 45. The significance for Graves is that this is after a few weeks of Bachmann ads against him. It is also notable that Bachmann’s numbers haven’t changed significantly. With three weeks left to go this race is more competitive than most people thought it would be.”
However, on Monday a poll from KSTP and SurveyUSA showed Bachmann with a 9-point lead over Graves.
