The Washington Post reports:
Joe Biden has opened up a double-digit lead over President Trump in Minnesota, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll released on Wednesday suggesting a set back for the president in a state that his campaign is hoping to flip in November.
The poll shows Biden garnering 57 percent of the vote to Trump’s 41 percent in Minnesota. Biden’s outsized lead in the state is driven, in part, by apparent defections among voter blocs critical to Trump’s political coalition.
Among non-college educated white women, a group Trump carried four years ago by a 22-point margin, Biden now leads 59-40 percent. Among seniors – those 65 and older – Biden has a 29-point advantage over Trump, garnering 64 percent support to the president’s 35 percent.

A new @abc News/WaPo poll finds Joe Biden up 6 points among likely voters in Wisconsin, and 16 points (!!!) in Minnesota, which seems to be fading as a Trump pickup opportunity.https://t.co/R9m4n6501p
