Poll: Clinton, Trump virtually tied in Maine’s 2nd District

The latest poll of Maine’s presidential election preferences found Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump in a dead heat in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, a battleground that’s gotten much more attention than usual this cycle.

The latest polling from the Maine People’s Resource Center, an affiliate of the progressive Maine People’s Alliance, found third-party candidates are having a strong influence in the race, where four-way polling put Clinton at 38.2 percent and Trump at 37 percent in the 2nd District.

About 10.5 percent of the 420 likely voters polled in CD2 were undecided.

In Maine’s 1st District, Clinton held a 10-point lead, with about 7 percent of the 469 likely voters in CD1 undecided.

If Trump pulls off a victory in Maine’s 2nd District, it would be the first time the state would split the two electoral votes determined by the results in each district.
