Republican challenger Jason Levesque has overcome a double-digit deficit and pulled to within striking distance of Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, according to the latest results of The Maine Poll.
The poll of the race for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District shows Michaud with the support of 44 percent of respondents and Levesque with 40 percent. That left about 14 percent of respondents who were still undecided.
The Maine Poll, conducted by Critical Insights for MaineToday Media, surveyed 326 likely voters with live interviewers on Wednesday and Thursday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.7 percent.
The previous Maine Poll, released in mid-October, had Michaud leading Levesque by 13 points, 43 to 30.
