St Paul (KROC AM News) - According to a new presidential preference poll, Joe Biden is favored by nearly half of the Minnesotans included in the survey.

The KSTP/SurveyUSA poll shows Biden leading Pres. Donald Trump 49-percent to 40-percent. Seven percent were undecided.

A dig into the survey shows Biden with a huge lead in the Twin Cities metro ( 55% to 34%). Biden has a much smaller edge in southern Minnesota, including Rochester where he leads 48% to 44%. The survey shows Trump dominating in NE Minnesota (61% to 37%) and in western areas.

The poll has a margin of error of 5 points.

Rochester set two cold weather records this week.
