American Future Fund is releasing a memo on new poll numbers in Minnesota which finds the Presidential race in a dead heat. The poll, conducted by NMB Research on October 7 and 8 with a margin of error of +/-4.38%, found Romney virtually tied with Obama at 43% vs. 47% respectively.
In the memo, researcher Glen Bolger points out that Romney’s powerful debate performance had an
equally powerful impact on his favorability with 47% answering it made them more favorable toward him while 45% were left feeling less favorable toward President Obama.
“This poll shows that Governor Mitt Romney’s message of creating jobs and opportunity in the private sector is resonating with voters,” stated AFF Founder Nick Ryan. “After struggling for the past four years under President Obama’s big government philosophies, they are ready for new leadership.”
AFF has spent more than $1.5 million in Minnesota reminding voters of the empty promises President Obama continues to make and pointing to the stark contrast in experience and leadership Governor Mitt Romney would bring to the White House.
AFF’s most recent ad, “A New Path,” outlines the Romney plan for America; energy independence, trade that works for America, a robust education system that gives Americans the skills to succeed, reducing the deficit and providing support for small business growth.
