SCSU Survey: Obama, Dayton, Franken Get Poor Ratings

Steven Wright

ST. CLOUD – Some top Democrats in Minnesota have some work to do, if they want to get re-elected next year.  St. Cloud State University has released a few results from their annual fall statewide survey.

Forty-four percent of the respondents questioned rated Governor Mark Dayton’s job performance as excellent and pretty good, while 52 percent rated his performance as only fair or poor.

U.S. Senator Al Franken had only a 39 percent favorable rating, while 51 percent gave him a negative approval.

As noted in national surveys, President Barack Obama’s performance rating has decreased from last year.  Only 38 percent of the SCSU survey respondents gave him a favorable rating, while 61 percent were negative.

Meanwhile, while U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar doesn’t have an election to worry about for another five years, she continues to get high ratings.  Fifty-seven percent view her favorably, while 34 percent gave her a negative rating.

St. Cloud State interviewed 626 randomly chosen Minnesota adults between October 20th and 27th.  The overall margin of error is about 4.5 percent.
