Some more good news out of Maine courtesy of Quinnipiac University’s latest poll:
The U.S. Senate race in Maine is too close to call with Democrat Sara Gideon getting 47 percent of the vote and Senator Susan Collins getting 43 percent. Six percent are undecided. Democrats back Gideon 88 – 7 percent, Republicans back Collins 85 – 8 percent, and independents are divided with 46 percent for Gideon and 42 percent for Collins.
Eighty-eight percent of voters who name a candidate say their minds are made up, while 11 percent say they might change their minds.
“She has both defied President Trump and backed him to the hilt. An embattled Republican in a northeastern state, Senator Collins faces the political challenge of her life,” said Malloy.
Voters give Senator Collins a negative 42 – 49 percent favorability rating. Voters give Sara Gideon a slightly positive 40 – 35 percent favorability rating, while 23 percent say they don't know enough about her to form an opinion.
As the incumbent Republican, 48 percent of voters say Senator Collins is too supportive of President Trump, 33 percent say she has the right attitude towards the president, and 12 percent say she is not supportive enough of him.
Lets keep up the momentum and defeat Collins once for all. Click below to donate and get involved with Gideon, Biden and their fellow Maine Democrats campaigns:
