Horner should drop out, and so should Chiles in MN. Both Democrats would clearly win without them.

I meant Chiles in FL

For a college pollster, they overpolled Republicans by five percentage points. Something very fishy about this poll. Independents still favor Dayton.

This poll is an outlier based on all past polling. True, things could have changed, but seeing as I live here, there hasn't been any big even to help Emmer or hurt Dayton. The U of M often gets polls wrong.

I would tend to think this is an outlier. Then I remember how Jesse Ventura got elected.

Minnesota politics can get really crazy really fast.

While improbable that could be what we see here.
