MN-Sen: New Poll Has Sen. Tina Smith (D) Beating Jason Lewis (R) 53-39, Biden Beating Trump 53-39

2 min read

Some very good news today out of Minnesota:


That’s a much better and different poll than from four days ago:

Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.) is in a statistical dead heat with her GOP challenger Jason Lewis less than two weeks before Election Day, according to a new poll.

A SurveyUSA poll released Wednesday shows Smith leading Lewis, a former congressman whose candidacy has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, by only 1 percent. It found that 43 percent of voters favored Smith compared to 42 percent for Lewis. Another 12 percent said they were undecided, while 3 percent said they would vote for a third party candidate. Smith's lead is well within the poll's 5 percent margin of error.

Although a Civiqs poll also released on Wednesday found Smith with an 11 percent lead over her challenger, the SurveyUSA poll could be a worrying sign for the incumbent. A poll conducted earlier this month by the same firm showed her with a 7 percent lead over Lewis, while another from mid-September gave her an 8 point lead. A RealClearPolitics average of recent polls shows Smith maintaining a 5.8 percent lead as of Thursday.
