Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram poll results for governor’s election
Republican Paul LePage and Democrat Mike Michaud are running neck-and-neck, with independent Eliot Cutler a distant third, among likely Maine voters polled in mid-June. When poll respondents were asked an open-ended question about the governor’s race that does not require them to select a specific candidate, nearly half said they were still undecided. In one-on-one races, LePage would finish second to both Michaud and Cutler.
More about the poll
The poll was conducted for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. The center, founded in 1976, is a nonpartisan enterprise that has carried out major survey projects for a wide range of business, nonprofit and media clients, including the Boston Globe, CNN and New Hampshire Public Radio. The findings are based on landline and cell phone interviews with 625 randomly selected Maine adults, including 527 likely voters, from June 12-18. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.9 percent for all respondents and 4.3 percent for likely voters.
