No big surprise there: Norm Coleman has always been ahead of Al Franken (Rasmussen poll of Minnesota voters). While support for Stuart Smalley has picked up five points from March, there are warning signs for Al: his DFL competitor Mike Ciresi's numbers are more favorable in some ways.
Franken is viewed favorably by 46%, up from 39%. However, he's viewed unfavorably by 47%, with 31% marking that as very unfavorably.
Ciresi, by contrast, is viewed unfavorably by 43%, with only 17% of that being in the very unfavorably category.
And, what's dragging Coleman down appears not to be him so much but president Bush.
Franken's numbers are only bound to get worse as more facts about his past come to light and as MN voters get a closer look at "Senator Al".
