Minnesota Attorney General Race Neck and Neck As Ellison Faces Pressure To Drop Out Over Abuse Allegations

Published

on

A recent poll suggests that the Minnesota Attorney General race is gearing up to be one of the closest races in the country ahead of the first televised debate between Keith Ellison and Republican challenger Doug Wardlow.

Although Ellison currently maintains a narrow lead over Wardlow, support for Ellison is declining throughout the Democrat party amid growing concerns of numerous allegations of domestic violence that have been brought against Ellison.

One of the key reasons why Ellison is leading in the polls is the fact that Ellison, who is a U.S. Congressman in Minnesota’s 5th District, has more name recognition than his opponent, who is a lawyer and former state representative.

However, even though Ellison has name recognition, with 80 percent of voters recognizing his name, 31 percent of Minnesota voters view him unfavorably, a number that is increasing amid the claims of domestic violence.

On Wednesday, Karen Monahan, who also dated Ellison and accused him of domestic violence, released evidence of her claims when she tweeted a picture of a 2017 medical record that documents her stress and anxiety level as being directly related to her abusive relationship with Ellison.

The medical report from Jodi K. Milburn, MD reads,

“She (Monahan) states that she was in a very stressful environment for years, emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated. She did not have any physical injuries that required physical examination in the past. She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Keith Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identified him publicly. She feels that she is in a safe environment now and she is following up with therapy and relaxation. She has had reduced anxiety with extracting herself from the relationship and she feels much healthier now.”

Since being accused of domestic violence by two different women, Ellison has denied the allegations, but has not answered to the fact that evidence in the form of a 2005 police report documents a 911 domestic call to the home of Amy Alexander, who dated Ellison and has since accused him of being physically and emotionally abusive towards her.

According to Star Tribune, “800 likely voters participated in the Minnesota Poll conducted Sept. 10-12. Of those, 37 percent were Democrats, 31 percent Republicans and 32 percent independents. The poll’s margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.”

Ellison and Wardlow will debate on Friday, September 21, 2018 in a LIVE PBS televised debate.

The election in Minnesota is November 6, 2018.

Joe Biden Surges in South Carolina, Florida, Throwing Wrench into Sanders’ Easy Victory

Biden might actually consolidate the ‘moderate’ lane after all.

Published

on

Joe Biden appears to be surging in the forthcoming Democratic primary state of South Carolina, throwing a wrench into what some have called an easy path to victory for frontrunner Bernie Sanders.

Biden has looked to South Carolina as a redoubt for his campaign after struggling mightily in the first three primary and caucus states. After Sanders’ resounding Nevada victory, he appeared set to challenge the former Vice President in the first southern state to vote, but the latest rounds of polling reveal that Biden has the state on lock.

A Monmouth University poll released Thursday showed Biden with a blowout lead of twenty percentage points in the Palmetto state. Biden has made appeal to African American voters a crucial element of his primary strategy, and the South Carolina polling suggests he’s retained strong support from black voters, even after his early campaign mishaps. African American voters form a majority of the state’s Democratic primary electorate.

Sanders languishes in a distant second in the poll, trailing Biden by a margin of 36% to 16%. Other polling recently conducted shows Biden with a smaller lead, but Sanders is yet to take the lead in a South Carolina poll with two days before the election.

New polling also shows the former Vice President retaking the lead in the Super Tuesday state of Florida, leading second-place Michael Bloomberg by a strong margin of nine percent. Sanders is all the way in third place in the Florida St. Pete poll, and such a finish in one of the first big states to vote after Super Tuesday would likely ensure that the Democratic Primary remains wide open.

Biden’s polling suggests that the career politician might actually have a chance to consolidate support from self-identifying ‘moderate’ Democrats, after competitors like Pete Buttigieg and Michael Bloomberg appeared set to eat his lunch.
