Minnesota Poll: Voters give Clinton higher marks on issues


Minnesota voters believe Democrat Hillary Clinton would do a better job of improving the economy, handling foreign policy and tackling terrorism than Republican Donald Trump, according a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll.

The poll, which showed Clinton leading overall with 44 percent of the vote to Trump’s 38 percent, also asked voters to pick which of the two leading candidates they thought was best equipped to tackle specific issues — and which candidate best understands the needs of the average American.

Statewide, Clinton came out on top on each issue, but took the biggest lead on foreign policy, where 49 percent said she’d do a better job handling those issues and 35 percent picked Trump. Another 10 percent said another candidate would do better, while 6 percent were not sure. On the question of who could best handle threats posed by ISIL and global terrorism, 46 percent selected Clinton to Trump’s 41 percent. The divide was narrower on the issue of which candidate would do a better job of creating jobs and improving the economy, with 42 percent picking Clinton and 40 percent selecting Trump.
