Ballot Access News: Minnesota Poll Suggests Green Party Will Regain its Qualified Status This Year

On July 5, Gravis Marketing released a poll for the Minnesota statewide races, including the Attorney General’s race. For that office, the results are: Democrat-Farmer-Labor Lori Swanson 49%, Republican Sharon Anderson 36%, Independence Party nominee Brendan Borgos 8%, Green Andy Dawkins 7%.

If Dawkins receives as much as 5%, the Green Party will regain its qualified status, for both 2016 and 2018. The Green Party hasn’t been a qualified party in Minnesota since November 2004.

The poll seems somewhat peculiar because when one adds up the percentages for each candidate, there is no room left for voters who say they are undecided. Thanks to Michael for the link.
