WBUR is a public radio station owned and operated by Boston University and situated in Boston. Are you sure that it isn't WMUR-TV, the New Hampshire TV station that heavily polls New Hampshire?

A link would be welcome.

WBUR reported this in depth on the morning news. Boston considers itself the capital of New England so Maine elections are worth reporting on.

The state polls lately indicate that Obama is leading nationwide by about 5 or 6.

Where are you getting those nationwide numbers from? Just gut?

Aren't the state polls showing him doing only about 2% worse than last time? (That's not counting the New Jersey poll that shows him doing significantly better.)

Maybe some of the state polls. There's also several showing him doing 5-10% worse than last time. All I know is RealClearPolitics has Obama ahead nationally by less than a point and that TalkingPointsMemo has Romney leading by more than 2 points.

A shame there doesn't appear to be a breakdown by CD, but then I think that their main concerns were the Senate race and the same-sex marriage referendum for which that doesn't matter, plus with redistricting, getting reliable info as to which CD people are in would be problematic.  There's a good chance that people who got moved from one district to another might not be aware of that yet, and it would be extra effort on the part of the pollster to find out which phone numbers correspond to which CDs.  If Maine truly is O+14, the disparity between CD1 and CD2 will matter only to people who are in contests to predict the electoral college vote, with shares of the vote to the nearest perdecile.
