    I doubt Lepage wins but its certainly possible if people don't get out to vote. 6 dollar fuel oil isn't going to help Mills chances even though she has nothing to do with oil prices. Golden wins 2nd district, and Pingree in 1st.

        So IIRC LePage won the first time because there was a three-way split of the ballot, but he won re-election outright, right? I see no reason he wouldn't be a threat again. Collins won, and Maine seems to be Ohioing.

          Lepage wins going away. The last thing Maine wants is a liberal in office.

              He won with a plurality both times. The same independent, Eliot Cutter, was on the ballot receiving something like 35% and 9% in the two times he ran. Maine also now has ranked choice voting. LePage could certainly win but certainly not going away.

                Both times he won before he ran against very mediocre candidates. Mills is both a strong candidate and has been a good governor but the tough decisions she has had to make during Covid will hurt her. On top of that people will vote against her because of inflation even though there really isn’t much she can do. Our housing is completely out of control right now. I think the school stuff drives a lot more votes than something like abortion too.

                The group of voters I’ll be interested to watch is upper middle parents in southern maine. That really is the democrats base in Maine and if some of them go with LePage Mills will be in serious trouble.

                Jared Golden will be Maine’s next Senator. Myself(and likely Walrus as well) love him but he rubs the hardcore democrats the wrong way.

                    I think he gets to 40% without a doubt but after that?? Again the wildcard is fuel prices and inflation, which I think I've been told on here neither matter.

                      On the contrary. They matter more than anything else. That's why the Democrats continue to lose over and over and over again while Republicans always find a way to stay in power, even when they're not in power.

                        They do, but the president, much less a governor, shouldn't get credit or blame for gas prices. Only a handful of things any person can do with immediate impact and that usually involves the strategic reserves.

                        Anyways, back in reality, yeah, inflation and fuel are going to determine this election.

                            Sad thing is, they don't even care about that.

                            Even sadder thing is, most of them don't even know a thing about it.

                            But if a Democrat even suggests anything, like maybe half a cent tax on every share of stock sold, Oh, the horror!!!!!

                              Agreed. Policy doesn't matter other than cruelty.

                                Policy Wonkiness is an instant negative for any politician. Lying to people and telling them they're going to be rich someday so Bezos needs a big taxcut always works.
