Star Tribune poll update: Minnesota’s

Star Tribune poll update: Minnesota’s gubernatorial candidates debated last night, and by my best estimate 233 Minnesotans watched. They were the folks whom the Star Tribune successfully recruited to watch the debate from among those whose opinions it had surveyed in its most recent Minnesota poll. In this subset of the Strib poll group, Republican Tim Pawlenty won by a handy margin. Dane Smith does his best to discount the result in “Viewers rate the gubernatorial candidate debate.”
