Poll: Poliquin leads Cain by double digits

Republican Bruce Poliquin

A new public opinion poll shows Republican Bruce Polquin leading Democrat state Sen. Emily Cain (D-Orono) by 10 points in Maine’s Second District congressional race.

The poll was paid for by the liberal-leaning Portland Press Herald, whose majority owner, S. Donald Sussman, has donated to Cain. It was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.

The margin of error on the poll, which surveyed 220 likely voters on landlines and cellphones, was 6.2 percent. The big margin of error may be attributed to the small sample size.

Just 3 percent of respondents said they would vote for independent candidate Blaine Richardson.

According to the Press Herald’s coverage of the poll, 43 percent of respondents don’t know enough about Cain to say whether their opinion of her is favorable or unfavorable. Poliquin, on the other hand, is better known and has seen an increase in his favorability rating since June.

Poliquin is a former State Treasurer who served under Gov. Paul LePage.
