In a clear lead not so long ago in Minnesota’s race for state attorney general, Democrat U.S. Representative Keith Ellison is now trailing Republican Doug Wardlow 43%-36% with just two weeks to go. Last month the same Star Tribune/MPR News Minnesota poll found Ellison ahead by five points, 41%-36%. This is a net loss of nine points for Ellison, who is facing accusations of sexual abuse. Among women voters alone, Ellison has lost seven points. According to the voter map, the entire state except for Hennpin and Ramsey Counties prefer Wardlow. In a state that is perpetually blue, Democrats are increasingly underwater.

The latest poll taken in Minnesota indicates a shocking upset may be about to take place: in the race for state attorney general, Democrat U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, formerly the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is losing to Republican Doug Wardlow, who leads by seven percentage points, 43%-36%.
The Star Tribune/MPR News Minnesota Poll that showed Wardlow with a significant lead reflected a massive change since September, when the same poll found Ellison with a five-point lead, 41%-36%.
The latest poll found GOP voters solidly behind Wardlow, while Democrats were uneasy about supporting Ellison, who has been facing accusations of sexual abuse from his former girlfriend. Ellison led Wardlow in the latest poll in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, but the rest of the state preferred Wardlow.
