Presidential race in Maine’s Second District remains neck-and-neck

Presidential race in Maine’s Second District remains neck-and-neck

While Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads statewide in Maine by seven percentage points, the race in Maine’s Second Congressional District remains too close to call, according to the final pre-election tracking survey for Beacon conducted by the Maine People’s Resource Center.

In CD2, which could allocate its electoral vote independently of the rest of the state, Clinton leads by two percentage points, 46% to 44%, in a head-to-head matchup. Trump moves into the lead by a single percentage point, however, when third-party candidates are included.

Clinton maintains a commanding 14-point lead in the First Congressional District, making it likely that she will win at least three of the state’s four electoral votes.

The poll of 855 likely Maine voters was conducted November 2nd and 3rd and has a 3.4% statistical margin of error at the 95% confidence level.

These numbers, both statewide and in the Second District, represent a small improvement for Clinton from last week’s tracking poll.
