Coleman Poll at Lowest Level Ever

St. Cloud State University Says Minnesotans Not So Warm on Norm

A poll released today by St Cloud State University found that Colemans “feeling thermometer” among Minnesota voters was at a level of 50. Coleman’s rating slipped 2 points from last year and a net 5 points from 2003.

The current level is the lowest St. Cloud St. ever recorded for Coleman. In fact, Coleman is now eight points below the point he was in 2001 when he announced that he would challenge Paul Wellstone and even below the level he was at immediately after he lost the Minnesota gubernatorial race in 1998.

Coleman “Feeling Thermometer” 1999-2005
Mean Temperature

1999 52
2000 55
2001 58
2002 53
2003 55
2004 52
2005 50

With George W. Bush rating the lowest in the poll, at 44, maybe Coleman ought to rethink his strategy of carrying water for the Bush Administration.
