LePage Leading In Maine

Pan Atlantic SMS is out with a new poll that looks at the governor race in Maine which finds Governor Paul LePage (R) leading challenger Mike Michaud (D), 39% To 34%, with Eliot Cutler at 20%.

A new Rasmussen survey shows Governor LePage (D) leading Michaud (D), 41% to 40%, with Cutler (I) at 16%.

It goes without saying that Governor LePage is benefiting from Cutler being in the race and splitting the anti-LePage vote. LePage is very unpopular and would be in a blow out Pennsylvania style race if he wasn’t in a three candidate horse race.
