Critical Insights has Republican Dean Scontras up four points over Chellie Pingree in ME-01.

  • Scontras - 45%
  • Pingree - 41%

Just a week ago another poll had Scontras just five points behind Pingree.


In ME-02 Jason Levesque is within four points of Mike Michaud according to Critical Insights

  • Mike Michaud - 44%
  • Jason Levesque - 40%

How strange would that be to have all Republican delegation to Congress?

Yeah, so now it's a 19-point swing over two weeks in ME-01. Sure.

Recent polls have put Republicans in front or within striking distance in ME-01, ME-02, NH-01, NH-02, MA-04, MA-10, RI-01, CT-04 and CT-05.  And who knows what's going on in some of the other under-the-radar MA districts.

New England is shaping up to be a potential Democratic bloodbath.  Not bad for a region with zero Republican Congressmen right now.

Maine is one of those 2 CD states where pollsters split 500-600 statewide LV poll samples to provide CD-level polling, leading to high MoEs - usually around 6%.  That almost always leads to higher variation than usual.

I do think that the swings do look a bit odd, since swings like that don't generally occur with an a matter of weeks. I would take these with a grain of salt.

The New England and NJ swings seem to reflect what happened with Brown and Coakley. Trending GOP out of nowhere, it seems.

I don't know how NY and PA been trending.

Its not a fluke poll, though it may overestimate Scontras a bit.  The district is D+8, but very contrarian.  I suspect they're about even. Pingree has been getting hit hard for a lot of things including the jet trips with her husband and in an eco-friendly district, those predisposed to her might decide just to not vote instead of pull the lever for her.  She's also a physical manifestation of a "rich liberal" when Mainers are unemployed.  That sort of style doesn't play well here - I work in her district, particularly in her stomping grounds - not hearing a lot of good things from people who voted for her the last time.

As for Michaud, I think hes good to go, but he still is in a D+3 district and could be swept away.  I highly doubt it.  Michaud's got a huge presence name wise and is pretty well liked.

I don't think he is any worse than some of the politicians we see in the mother country. Royal and Le Pen, for example.

Alright, if Republicans gain less than 75 seats, I'll prominently display my failure in my signature.
