KSTP TV aired last night the first public poll of the race for Congress from the Minnesota 6th District.
Based on automated interviews (this is the robo-dialing technique that I keep cautioning about) with 641 likely voters, Survey USA found the race at:
Republican Michele Bachmann: 50 percent.
Democrat nominee Patty Wetterling: 41 percent
Independence Party-ite John Binkowski: 5 percent
Survey USA said the margin for sampling error was plus or minus 3.9 percent.
