Is Minnesota In Danger Of Going Red?
Posted by: MichaelW on Tuesday, November 04, 2008

The Obama campaign seems to think so:
I'm a student at Carleton College who has contributed (financially and with my time) to the Obama campaign. I just got an automated call from Jeff Blodgett, the chair of the MN campaign. The text of the call was:

"Hello, this is Jeff Blodgett from the Minnesota for Obama campaign. Our initial data shows this election is significantly closer than the polls predicted. We are putting out an urgent call for volunteers... We are organized groups to knock on doors at five P.M., or earlier if you can, for our final GOTV operation." This was followed by different numbers to call based on your residence.
If Minnesota goes to McCain, where the dominant parties are the Republicans and the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Parties (but mostly the DFL), then I can't see how Pennsylvania or Ohio are going to go to Obama. It's possible, of course, but it sure doesn't seem very likely. And the same goes for Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Nevada and Colorado.

All of which probably means that Minnesota isn't going to be placed in the Red corner. But the fact that it's close does not bode well for the Obama-in-a-landslide dreamers.
