Mitt Romney has cut President Obama's lead in half among Maine voters, although Obama still holds a tough-to-overcome 7-percentage-point advantage, according to a poll conducted last week for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram.
Obama leads the Republican nominee 49 percent to 42 percent in the statewide telephone survey conducted Tuesday and Wednesday by Portland-based Critical Insights. In mid-September -- before the presidential debates sparked enthusiasm for Romney -- Obama led by 16 points.
The race is now close enough in Maine that Romney is winning among men voters for the first time, the poll shows. Strong support among women is keeping Obama in the lead.

Let’s see - D+ oversampled right? Its an old story - even in Maine.
Ditto for Vermont. I don't get it.
I’ll take 1 EV from Maine, Alex.
Maine would be a solid Republican state but for the social issues. One of two states that never voted for FDR.
As I understand it, it’s due to
“Invasion of the Mass RAT’ers”!
If it were not for Massholes having vacations homes in Maine, it would be a Red state.
No idea. My Dad was from Van Buren in Aristook County. He grew up in a large family of self reliant people and never voted for a dem his entire life. If he were alive today, he would be disgusted at this parasite in the oval office.
Come on Chowda-heads.
This is your last chance to turn Obamacare into a 2700 page bonfire.
“If it were not for Massholes having vacations homes in Maine, it would be a Red state”
I would assume they vote in MA.How would that affect Maine?
Real Mainers wear Carhartt.
When you see some joker in a cable knit sweater with J Crew Shorts on, that’s a Masshole.
Massholes moving in over the years?
Farmers wanting gov't handouts?
Small industrial/logging towns with heavy Union participation?
Their vacation homes eventually become primary residences.
A Texas Rancher and a Maine tater farmer meet:
The Texan s Brags that “Mah Ranch is so big, I can git in my truck at sun up and drive, and not reach the other side of the ranch by sundown”
The Maineah says: “Heyup, I had a truck like that once”
And again the big story here too is that ZerO is under 50%. Do I detect a pattern?
Maine is nearly Lilly White, and wholesome.. If they had to tolerate the riffraff, the permanent taker class can inflict on the population, they would be an ice cold Mississippi..
I know what this sounds like.. Whatever!.. I report you decide.. LOL
This, along with close races in NH, MN and OR is pointing to one conclusion.
I thought that VT got overrun by NYC folks starting in the 60's.
