This information is a little dated, so take it with a grain of salt. It's a survey commissioned by Rep. Tim Walz, a DFLer from Mankato, that shows how well he would do against either GOP contender, Mayo Clinic physician Brian Davis or state Sen. Dick Day.
The survey, which was done by Benenson Strategy Group, a Washington, D.C.-based polling firm, shows that the first-term Democrat would do well against either candidate. The poll, which was conducted May 17 through May 19, showed Walz with a 57 percent to 22 percent lead over Day, with 21 percent of respondents undecided. Walz had a 60 percent to 20 percent over Davis, with 21 percent of responsdents undecided.
According the Benenson Strategy Group, the report covered the results of a survey of 502 likely general election voters district-wide. The interviews were conducted May 17 through May 19. The margin of error for overall results is 4.37 percent.
The Benenson Strategy Group's clients include Virginia Gov. Tim Kaline, Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and New Jeresy Sen. Robert Menendez, the firm says.
