The downside to Minnesota's government reopening, which creaked to a start in earnest Thursday: No significant progress was made on the state's massive budget woes, leaving lawmakers and taxpayers on track to face the same — if not bigger — deficit problems in two years.
It's Walter Mondale and Friends to the rescue in Minnesota, where the state's political elders have staged a third-party intervention.
"In a race, it always has to be two candidates, and people oftentimes look worse until the other candidate is announced," Mr. Kiedrowski said. "I also think she was so strident in her views and so conservative in her views that I think there may be some independents who just got tired of it. Some think that she had gone over the line."
Jay Kiedrowski, a senior fellow at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs, cited the recent polling as a weakening of Mrs. Bachmann's support — though he still says the odds favor her in November.
