Election Night Surprise: Why Minnesota Will Turn Red on November 6

Election Night Surprise: Why Minnesota Will Turn Red on November 6 « Battleground Watch.

Check out this great, in-depth analysis on why Minnesota (yes, Minnesota) is ripe to vote for Romney in November.

It looks like the race is even close in Minnesota: Obama 47%, Romney 43%

Keith Backer from the www.battlegroundwatch.com blog post to some good stuff. He found an interesting tidbit about Minnesota, and the fact that the two camps are actually looking a little closer. Certainly, it is still a longshot for Romney to take Minnesota, however the state has certainly shown that it has some conservative leanings. If the president is still pulling below 49 to 48%, perhaps there is an opening there. My sense is that Keith is right in his article, and that more likely than not, unless there is a dramatic shift in the next couple weeks, Minnesota is still a long shot.
