First-term Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) would trounce her only declared Republican opponent, according to a poll released Thursday.
The Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Klobuchar with a 61 percent approval rating as she looks toward her re-election effort in 2012. The survey of more than 1,000 Minnesota voters showed that respondents preferred her over GOP candidate Dan Severson, 56 to 28 percent. Sixteen percent of respondents said they were undecided, but even if all those voters on the bubble went with Severson, Klobuchar would still be far ahead.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
