Jesse “The Senator” Ventura?

Jesse VenturaIn multiple interviews today, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura hinted that he is considering joining the state’s 2008 U.S. Senate race.

NPR, the AP, the Politico, the New York Times all have reports on his possible candidacy against Norm Coleman and Al Franken.

A recent poll shows Ventura would draw support from Franken, Coleman, and undecideds. Without Ventura, Coleman leads Franken 52-40. With Ventura, Coleman polls at 41%, Franken at 31%, and Ventura at 23%.

Then again, when Ventura was elected Governor in 1998, he was also polling in third.

What do you think? Should he do it? Can he win?
