Is Minnesota in play for Romney?

An interesting result from the Survey USA poll done for wasn't just the numbers showing the marriage protection amendment up by 15 percentage points, 52% to 37% but also the presidential numbers.  It shows Obama's lead in Minnesota cut in half to 6%.  Obama leads Romney 46% to 40%. 

The last time Minnesota voted for the republican presidential candidate was in 1972, so tradition has been with democrats.  However, numbers less than 50% for the incumbent and growing concerns over whether another recession is on the horizon could change that.  If things tighten up even more, Obama could well have to put additional time, attention and resource into Minnesota.
