3-Way Tie In Maine GOP Primary: In a Republican Primary in Maine today, 6/12/06, 3 candidates for Governor are tied, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for WCSH-TV Portland. On the eve of the 6/13/06 Primary, it's Chandler Woodcock 31%, David Emery 30%, Peter Mills 30%. Since an identical SurveyUSA WCSH-TV poll 1 week ago, Woodcock has gained 2 points, Mills has gained 3 points, and Emery has lost 1 point. Woodcock does best among voters under age 35. Emery does best among older voters and in Southern Maine. Mills does best among high-income voters, Independents, and moderates. Unusual volatility in the tracking graphs, combined with 10% undecided on Primary Eve, suggest that contest is anyone's race to win, and that voter turnout will decide race. The winner of the Primary will challenge incumbent Democratic Governor John Baldacci in November.

Filtering: 2,000 Maine adults were interviewed 6/9/06 - 6/11/06. Of them, 1,812 were registered to vote. Of them, 1,101 were registered Republicans or Independents. Of them, 500 were judged to be Likely Republican Primary Voters. Crosstabs reflect Likely Republican Primary Voters.
