Poll Finds Minnesotans Favor Clinton over Trump
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A new statewide poll finds Democrat Hillary Clinton holding a big lead over Republican Donald Trump among Minnesota voters.
The Star Tribune Minnesota Poll finds Clinton leading Trump 48 percent to 35 percent in a matchup between the two presidential front-runners. The telephone poll of 800 Minnesota voters was taken last week.
The poll finds Trump fares worst in major cities, among young voters and among women. But it also finds Trump nearly even with Clinton in nine exurban Twin Cities counties.
The poll also finds both Clinton and Trump face trust problems among Minnesota voters. According to the poll, only 37 percent of voters think Clinton is honest and just 34 percent say Trump is truthful. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
