Brewer in Portland Press Herald Polling Analysis

University of Maine professor of political science Mark Brewer discussed several pre-election polling results with the Portland Press Herald. Just because polls suggest Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is gaining in popularity in the race against incumbent President Barack Obama, Brewer said, doesn’t mean Maine will become a battleground state. About the same-sex marriage referendum question, which appears to be gaining in public support, Brewer said when issues are controversial about 4 percent of voters tell pollsters one thing, then vote differently in the privacy of a voting booth.
