MAINE: Collins Challenger +4 In New US Senate Poll

The Bangor Daily News reports:

A poll released Monday showed House Speaker Sara Gideon with a narrow lead over Sen. Susan Collins, with the Democrat receiving 46 percent support compared with 42 percent for the Republican incumbent.

Both the primary and the general election will be decided by ranked-choice voting. Several independents, including former Green candidate Lisa Savage and conservative Max Linn, will likely be on the ballot.

The poll released on Monday found Collins’ approval rating held roughly steady with 36 percent of voters approving of her performance as senator, while 55 percent disapproved.
