Gov. Tim Walz argued that Minnesota has weathered the medical and economic tolls of the pandemic better than many states.

Gov. Tim Walz's approval rating has fallen to 57%, dipping eight percentage points during a summer of urban unrest and a continuing COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new Star Tribune/MPR News/KARE 11 Minnesota Poll.

The survey of likely Minnesota voters also showed that as the coronavirus case count has climbed, so have concerns about the virus.

With 97,638 cases and 2,015 deaths recorded in Minnesota, more people said they know family members, friends or acquaintances who have tested positive. And the percentage of people worried about getting seriously ill has ticked up since a poll in May. However, the latest results show many are hesitant about quickly using a vaccine if one becomes available.
