MEMORANDUM
TO: The Minnesota Jobs Coalition FROM: B.J. Martino DATE: November 21, 2013 RE: Summary Findings from a Survey of Voters in Minnesota
______________________________________________________________________________
The Tarrance Group is pleased to present The Minnesota Jobs Coalition with the findings from a survey of likely voter attitudes in Minnesota. All respondents interviewed in this study were part of a fully representative sample of N=400 registered “likely” voters, using a blended methodology of automated calls to voters with landline phones and live calls to voters on cell  phones. The margin of error for the sample is +/- 5% in 19 of 20 cases. The surveys were conducted on November 19-20, 2013.
Executive Summary
The results from this recent survey of voters in Minnesota highlight the concerns Minnesota voters have with the direction our country is headed in, and the President’s health care law. While Governor Dayton grapples with an electorate divided over his re-election, his handling of the implementation of Obamacare has been and will continue to be a problem for him. Senator Al Franken is also feeling the effects of negative attitudes about the country and Obamacare.
 Direction of the Country
Minnesota voters are largely not happy with the direction in which the country is headed. Six in ten (60%) say the country is headed down the wrong track, just over 2:1 over those who say things are going in the right direction.
“Do you feel like the country is headed in the right direction, or is going off on the wrong track?”
Right Direction 28% Wrong Track 60%
Obamacare
A 51% majority of likely Minnesota voters currently disapprove of President Obama’s health care law. Furthermore, a 43% plurality strongly disapprove, significantly greater than the intensity of those who approve (at only 29% strongly approve).

 2 “Do you approve or disapprove of the President Obama’s health care law, known as Obamacare, which has been in the news recently?”
Approve 43%
Strongly 29%
Disapprove 51%
Strongly 43%
Unsure 7%*
While partisan Republicans and DFL voters are mostly polarized on the issue (88% of Republican disapprove, while 84% of DFL voters approve), independent voters break 2:1 against the law. Only 31% of independents approve, while a 62% majority of independents disapprove of Obamacare.
Senator Franken
Anti-incumbency over the direction of the country and negative attitudes towards Obamacare may contribute to the fact that Senator Al Franken has only a marginal positive re-elect. Forty-five percent (45%) say he deserves re-election, while 43% say it is time for a new person. Intensity on each side is within the margin of error.
“Do you think Minnesota’s U.S. Senator Al Franken has done a good enough job to deserve re-election, or is it time to give a new person a chance?”
 
Deserves 45%
Strongly 32%
New Person 43%
Strongly 34%
Unsure 11%
Governor Dayton
Minnesota voters are divided on the question of re-electing Mark Dayton. Forty-five percent (45%) say he has done a good enough job to deserve re-election, while 45% say it is time to give a new person a chance. Here, the intensity slightly favors those calling for a new person.
“Do you think Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has done a good enough job to deserve re-election, or is it time to give a new person a chance?”
 
Deserves 45%
Strongly 29%
New Person 45%
Strongly 34%
Unsure 10%
