A KSTP/Survey USA poll says GOP Sen. Norm Coleman has a ten point lead over DFL challenger Al Franken:
Less than a month ago, Coleman lead Franken 41 to 40 in a statistical dead heat. Barkley had a remarkable 14 percent.
On Thursday, Coleman led Franken, 43 to 33 percent. Barkley does surprisingly well again, registering 19 points.
KSTP says 25 to 30 percent of poll respondents who support each candidate now say they could still change their mind by Election Day.
