  • Minnesota Poll: Dayton leads GOP's Johnson by double digits

    Article By: PATRICK CONDON ,Star Tribune Publish September 14, 2014 2:00 AM / Update September 14, 2014 5:45 AM

    A longtime political figure, Dayton has 100 percent name recognition. But Minnesotans are deeply divided on his performance as governor. About 46 percent approve of the way Dayton has done his job, but 45 percent disapprove. That’s a tumble from February’s Minnesota Poll, when Dayton registered a 58 percent approval rating.

    Despite that notable drop, Dayton’s campaign manager said the governor was pleased by the size of his lead over Johnson. “We are grateful that so many Minnesotans recognize the progress our state has made during the past four years,” said campaign manager Katharine Tinucci. “The poll tells us to keep working even harder to talk with voters about what we stand for — more jobs for our citizens, the best education for our kids, and government that works better for everyone.”
