MAINE: Collins Challenger Sara Gideon +9 In New Poll

Forbes reports:

New polls show Senate control slipping further away from the GOP, as incumbent Republican Senators in swing states trail their Democratic opponents badly and Republican-controlled seats in deep red states look increasingly competitive.

Democrats need a net gain of four Senate seats, or three and the vice presidency, to attain a majority in the upper chamber.

One big opportunity for Democrats is in Maine, where Senator Susan Collins’ newfound alignment with Trump has made her vulnerable to Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon, her first real challenge since she was first elected in 1996.
