  • 41 percent of independents say he should resign, while 52 percent say he should not
  • 38 percent of women voters believe he should step down, while 51 percent say he should not
  • 53 percent of all voters approve of the job Franken is doing compared to 42 percent who disapprove
  • 44 percent of all those polled approve of President Donald Trump’s job performance, while 53 percent disapprove

The poll, conducted Dec. 26-27, surveyed 671 Minnesota voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.8 percent.
