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

Keith Backer from the 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.
