Rasmussen: LePage leading
The latest poll by Rasmussen Reports shows Romney endorsee Paul LePage maintaining a small but significant lead in his race for Governor of Maine. The poll shows LePage up on Democrat Libby Mitchell by an eight point margin 39-31; independent candidate Eliot Cutler takes 15% of the vote. Cutler’s share of the vote has increased significantly, more than doubling over the past month. Nevertheless, LePage’s lead has held steadily over Mitchell, possibly indicating that Cutler is taking equally from both candidates. With 12% still undecided in this race and the potential for the third party candidate to influence the shape of the race, LePage is not yet a lock for victory. Still, the continuing lead is not a bad sign.
