Clinton, Ryan Make Sunday Stops In Minnesota
With the 2012 election now just a day away, Minnesota continues to get attention from both Democrats and Republicans in the presidential race. The late attention to the state is causing some political experts to continue to suggest that Minnesota may be up for grabs.
Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan and former President Bill Clinton rallied in Minnesota Sunday, each meeting with voters and promoting their views of America’s future. Ryan appeared at the airport while Clinton was in St. Cloud.
In the last week before the election, Clinton has also visited Minneapolis and Duluth. Clearly these trips to the state at this late stage show a change of focus by the Obama campaign, and lend credence to the idea that Minnesota is now being considered a swing state.
A recent poll by ABC News/Washington Post showed the national race between President Barack Obama and Republican Candidate Mitt Romney tied at 48% each. Minnesota has gone to the democrats in every presidential campaign since 1976. While some suggest that may change, it does appear that tomorrow night’s race will be a very close one with some experts even predicting that (much like the election of 2000) one candidate may win the popular vote while the other candidate wins the electoral college and thus the election.
We’ll see, but either way, the election takes place tomorrow, on Tuesday Nov. 6.
