  •  State Fair/Labor Day is start of season (2+ / 0-)

    Politics in Minnesota go into high gear with the kick-off of the State Fair, which occurs the week before and including Labor Day. This is when Minnesotans start focusing on the candidates, since they all spend time at the Fair and it's a big deal. I suspect we'll see Coleman's numbers drop even more after the Fair, when people start paying attention.

    When we start seeing Franken (or Ciresi) and Coleman engaging each other it won't even be a contest, Coleman's nothing but tired media slickness, while Ciresi and Franken have serious policy depth. Franken's quick wit and Ciresi's lawyering skills should both be enough to shred Coleman's TV facade, not unlike how Amy Klobuchar devastated Mark Kennedy.

    •  MN is Ripe (0+ / 0-)

      I live in Utter Exurbia and even some of my neighbors are turning.  The war is very unpopular and Coleman is wedded to Bush forever in the hearts and minds of anyone that's been paying attention.  Coleman is very likely to go down.

      It should be remembered, I think, that Coleman is a more polished and popular politician and considered more of a moderate and a populist than Kennedy was in 2006.  So, he will be harder to beat.  But Kennedy wasn't ever really in the race.
