MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- DFL Challenger Mark Dayton leads incumbent Republican Sen. Rod Grams in the race for the U.S. Senate, according to a Minnesota poll by the Star Tribune released Sunday.
Grams has chipped away at Dayton's lead, but he still trailed by 9 percentage points on the final weekend of the campaign. Dayton had 46 percent of the support and Grams 37 percent in the survey of 1,015 likely voters conducted statewide Oct. 31-Nov. 3. Independence Party candidate James Gibson had 5 percent.
The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The good news for Grams was that Dayton's support had dropped 3 percentage points from a Minnesota Poll two weeks ago.
The bad news for Grams was that the latest poll was similar in almost every aspect to the last two Minnesota Polls.
