Lost of people are speculating that Minnesota is in play for Trump this year. He has picked up some major endorsements there and he only lost the state narrowly in 2016.
The riots in Minneapolis didn’t help Biden either.
Now Joe is going to campaign in Minnesota right before the final weekend of the campaign as Trump closes in, according to some polls.
Hot Air reports:
Oh My: Two Polls Put Trump In Range In … Minnesota
I want to believe. And one thing seems certain — Minnesota is actually in play again this time around. A new round of polls all show this state to be within single digits in both the presidential and Senate races, with the two Republicans gaining momentum in the final stretch … or perhaps a couple of the pollsters recognizing issues with their previous voter models.
Even if that’s the cause, it still shows Trump trailing by less than five points in the Real Clear Politics’ polling average…
Five weeks ago, the Star-Tribune/Mason-Dixon poll put Biden up only by six, which itself was quite a surprise from a polling series that normally overstates Democratic performance. The center-left MinnPost’s survey two weeks ago put Biden up by only five — and Biden didn’t get to 50% in either of them.
Today, two new polls have Trump just within their margins of error in this race. First up, GOP pollster Trafalgar has the race at Biden 45.9% to Trump 43.7%, and Biden 48.0/44.8 when adding in leaners…
The fact that Biden is planning to campaign in Minnesota should worry Democrats.

Trump definitely has a shot in Minnesota.
It’ll shock Democrats and the media if he pulls it off there.
