Although a majority of Maine voters don’t want Governor Paul LePage reelected, he may become the first U.S. governor to win twice with less than 40 percent of the vote. Sandy Maisel, Colby’s William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Government, notes the key differences in this three-way election that may alter the results from 2010, when LePage won despite 61 percent voting against him: “People deserted the Democratic Party, because Libby [Mitchell] was a weak candidate. … My feeling is that most of the people who are undecided right now between [Democrat Mike] Michaud and [Independent Eliot] Cutler are going to decide based on the last couple of sets of polls. If Cutler can’t break 20 percent, I think they’re going to desert him in droves.”
