Minnesota Election 2012: Obama Looks Set To Top Mitt Romney (LIVE UPDATES)

What Obama Has To Do To Beat Mitt Romney

President Barack Obama is expected to win Minnesota's 10 electoral votes over Republican challenger Mitt Romney, keeping alive a streak of Democratic victories that extends back to 1976.

Though the President has held a consistent lead in the blue-leaning state, Paul Ryan arrived on the ground to campaign just two days before election day. The North Star state will be sending approximately 3 million people to the polls on Tuesday.

Two constitutional amendments are also on the docket: one defining marriage and one determining voting rules. The real action, though, may come in Minnesota's 8th congressional district, one of the nation's most expensive and most competitive races.

Most polling places in Minnesota should be open by 7:00 a.m., and all polling locations will close by 8:00 p.m.

Below, a rundown on the latest poll numbers for Senate races across the country. Scroll down for live blog updates on the latest developments to unfold on Election Day.
