The Maine People’s Resource Center has released the results of a public opinion poll of likely Maine 2012 voters, with survey information on the presidential race, both races for Congress, the U.S. Senate primary and general elections and the November referendum on equal marriage. The timing of the poll, coming after candidates have announced their intentions but before campaigns have begun in earnest, means that these results show only the current lay of the land and an early snapshot in time, rather than necessarily being predictive of final election outcomes.
The results of off-year referendums in Maine are notoriously difficult to anticipate. In 2009, for instance, almost every poll released was widely divergent from the actual results of the People’s Veto on same-sex marriage. However, based on a public opinion survey conducted from November 3rd through 5th, with a sample of 722 likely voters, the Maine People’s Resource Center (MPRC) anticipates a Yes vote on Question 1 this Tuesday and No votes on both Questions 2 and 3.
