PORTLAND – A new survey shows Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud about even with Republican Gov. Paul LePage among Maine voters in the race for governor.
Critical Insights of Portland interviewed 600 likely voters across the state Sept. 27-30 for its fall tracking survey gauging Mainers’ opinions on a variety of topics.
When asked who they would vote for if the governor’s election were held tomorrow, 33 percent said they’d vote for Michaud and 30 percent chose LePage. Twenty-four percent of those surveyed said they’d vote for independent Eliot Cutler.
The survey, released Thursday, has a sampling margin of error of 4 percentage points.
The election is in November 2014.
