Minnesota Republicans caucus on February 7. Since giving up his own bid for the nominations, former Governor Tim Pawlenty has been stumping for Mitt Romney. Public Policy Polling releases this gauge on the results of that so far, in a survey of 303 likely Republican caucus voters (pdf).
With 70 percent of voters open to changing their minds, Newt Gingrich has not got a safe lead, PPP cautions. Neither does the Romney campaign have the result it might have hoped for in Mr. Pawlenty’s homestate. For that matter, Mr. Pawlenty’s own negatives are coming in at 50 percent.
