Looks like I spoke too soon when I said Al Franken was in trouble. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported on the 4th that Franken has a solid lead against Norm Coleman for the first time:
The Minnesota Poll results suggest Franken may be riding the coattails of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who has widened a lead over Republican John McCain in polls across the country. But the advertising war in the race also appears to be a factor decidedly in Franken’s favor.
Coleman's negative ads are taking their toll on him. And Coleman's approval rating is at 38 percent.

There's another candidate in the race though. Independent Dean Barkley is polling at 18 percent to McCain's 34 and Obama's 43. Barkley is up in the polls, too, taking votes from Coleman.
