A new poll conducted by CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corp. shows Obama with a twelve-point lead in Minnesota.
The poll, conducted Aug. 31 – Sept. 2, shows Obama with a twelve point lead over McCain, 53 percent to 41 percent. This compares with the ten point lead that Obama had in last month’s MPR News/University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute poll.
The CNN/Time poll also shows Obama with a significant lead in Iowa. 55 percent of those polled said they are supporting Obama while 40 percent are supporting McCain. Notably, Obama is even leading in Iowa’s western counties, which George W. Bush easily won in 2004.
