Recent polls show Biden up slightly in Minnesota, but for the former vice president's plan to spend the Friday before election day in what has historically been a solid state for Democrats raises questions about the campaign’s confidence. A Republican presidential candidate has not won Minnesota since 1972.
Does a campaign spend the Friday before Election Day in these states if their internals match, say, 538’s current aggregate, putting Biden up 1 in Iowa, up 8 in Minnesota, and up 8.4 in Wisconsin? https://t.co/Ai23MNpzTv— Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) October 29, 2020
Biden will also make stops in Iowa and Wisconsin, as both campaigns battle for these states. President Trump will also campaign in Minnesota on Friday afternoon, vowing to flip the state in Tuesday’s election.
