The most recent poll in the Minnesota governor’s race shows former Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton and GOP state Rep. Tom Emmer running neck-and-neck.
A voter survey done by Minnesota Public Radio and the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey Institute shows Dayton and Emmer each receiving 34 percent of the vote, with Independence Party candidate Tom Horner coming in at 13 percent. About 20 percent of voters said they were undecided.
Prior to the primary election, Dayton was consistently leading Emmer and the two former DFL candidates in the governor’s race. The same poll in May had Dayton with a 4 percent advantage over Emmer (35-31).
The poll surveyed 750 Minnesotans via landline telephones. The margin of error is plus or minus 5.3 percent.
