Obama's Coattails?

Rasmussen has a new poll out that shows our presumptive nominee's lead over Darth McVader in Minnesota has climbed to eighteen points. The current poll shows:

Obama 52
McCain 34

(With leaners, it's 54% to 37%.)

Last month, Rasmussen showed the race slightly tighter with Obama at 52% and McVader at 39%.

Interestingly, Senator Obama may be showing some coattails. Democrat Al Franken now leads incumbent Senator Norm "Pot Head" Coleman 44% to 42%. Last month, Coleman led Franken. The movement of Democrats away from Coleman toward Franken apparently accounts for the phenomenon. If Democrats are coming home to Franken, it perhaps suggests good feeling that our nominee is generating among the faithful.
