With a new poll out today on the Maine Senate and other other races, independent Angus King’s position in this year’s contest is quite stable.
In fact, King’s position vis a vis other candidates has been very similar for decades.
Just look at this chart, which shows the results for King, a Republican, and a Democrat in two 2012 polls and in the votes of November 1998, when he was re-elected as governor.
I don’t have time to discuss this right now, but please add your thoughts below.
Election results are from the Elections Division, Department of the Secretary of State.
