Here’s the latest news today out of Maine:
Democratic challenger Sara Gideon is favored by 5 percentage points over four-term Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, according to a poll of nearly 900 likely Maine voters conducted by Colby College.
The survey, conducted between July 18-24 – not long after Gideon officially won the Democratic nomination – showed her with a 44-39 advantage over Collins, with 12 percent undecided and 6 percent saying they planned to support another candidate.
That’s a slight increase for Gideon from a poll done by Colby in February, shortly after President Trump was acquitted of impeachment but before the coronavirus pandemic upended the country, that showed her with a narrow 43-42 edge. That poll asked registered voters, not likely voters.
The poll also has Joe Biden beating Trump 50-39 in Maine and beating Trump Maine’s 2nd congressional district 45-42. Rep. Jared Golden (D. ME-02) is also beating Dale Crafts (D. ME-02) 44-33.
