Mark Dayton, the former U.S. senator and Minnesota DFL gubernatorial nominee, is leading GOP candidate Tom Emmer in the governor’s race, according to a new Star Tribune poll.

The poll of 949 likely voters, taken Sept. 20-23, showed Dayton with 39 percent, Emmer with 30 percent, and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner coming in at 18 percent of the vote. The poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points, included cell phone users. Those voters are considered more likely to lean Democratic than people who use only landlines, according to the Star Tribune.

A Rasmussen Reports poll released a few days ago showed Emmer and Dayton running neck-and-neck (Emmer 42, Dayton 41) with Horner polling at 9 percent.

  1. I wouldn’t believe anything that came from the Star Tribune. I got some swamp land in Florida for anyone who does.

  2. I find it stunning that ANYONE would vote for Americas WORST senator to be governor of our state.
    The last thing we need is another tax and spend progressive. If you like the high taxes high unemployment vote for Dayton. I do not want Minnesota to end up like Michigan New York and California. We are already out of money in this state. Please we MUST STOP SPENDING NOW.
    Vote out the democratic big tax and spenders.

  3. I’m excited to see Mark Dayton ahead in the polls. The last thing Minnesota needs is another Tim Pawlenty.

  4. Says a lot about the intelect of the majority of Minnesota. They elect Franken and Klobuchar. LOL. Public education is not working for Minnesota.
