Other candidates garnered smaller percentages, with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at 7%, Cornel West and Jill Stein each at 2%, and Chase Oliver at 0.6%. The undecided voters stand at 11%.

  2. Four-Way Ballot: Excluding Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Trump's lead increases to 5 points over Biden, with a distribution of 44% for Trump and 39% for Biden. Jill Stein and Chase Oliver's support rises to 5% and 1%, respectively, while undecided voters remain at 11%.

Implications for the 2024 Election

These poll results are significant for Trump's campaign, indicating a potential shift in a state that has been a battleground in recent elections. With a lead in Minnesota, Trump eyes the state's 10 electoral votes, which could be crucial in a tightly contested race.

Trump's campaign team is likely to leverage these results to bolster support and momentum as they move forward. The former president's ability to attract undecided voters and maintain a lead in diverse ballot scenarios underscores his continuing influence and potential viability in the upcoming election.

As the campaign progresses, both Trump's and Biden's teams will undoubtedly keep a close watch on Minnesota, considering its potential impact on the overall electoral landscape.
