  • Updated: September 14, 2013 - 11:51 PM

A poll commissioned by the Star Tribune of 800 Minneapolis likely voters finds that the large field of mayoral candidates leaves a lot of people uncertain about who to support for their first, second and third choices. The poll was conducted Sept. 8-10 and has a margin of sampling error of 3.5 percentage points, plus or minus.
