A poll released today by Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, North Carolina, shows Republican Paul LePage leading Democrat Libby Mitchell 43-29 percent in the race for governor, with independent Eliot Cutler at 11 percent.

 Independent Shawn Moody polled at 5 percent, independent Kevin Scott came in with 1 percent and 12 percent were undecided.

 The company surveyed 1,468 likely Maine voters from Sept. 2-6. The margin of error is +/-2.6 percent.

 Another poll released last month had LePage at 38 percent, Mitchell at 30 percent and Cutler at 16 percent. That Rasmussen poll did not include Moody and Scott in the survey and had 11 percent undecided.
