Before we get into the Rassmussen is a gold standard v. GOP Hack fun, its worth noting that his polling, along with Surveyusa, has always skewed heavily GOP in Maine. Up until the end, he had Woodcock either leading or tied with Baldacci in 2006, so LePage's  numbers are basically identically to where Ras showed Woodcock at this point.

FWIW, Chuck Todd said unequivocally yesterday that Rasmussen can't be considered any more a respectable pollster.

Link?

He said it on his twitter account where he had a spar with a couple of conservative columnists because he didn't mention at his show Rasmussen's Nevada poll that showed Angle ahead by 11.
Predictably he was called after that an "Obama lackey".

Then again the 11 point lead for Angle could be accurate in the form of a post-primary bounce in a general election face-off with a very unpopular incumbent.

     Indeed. How familiar is the average Nevadan swing voter with Angle's views? If the answer is "not very", it's easy to see why a poll taken now would show Angle with a commanding lead.

True,

Obviously, whether that lead holds is dependent on how Angle presents herself and preforms against Reid.

Isn't it possible that Woodcock was indeed ahead in ME but lost in the end because Moderates learned how conservative he was?

I think we give too much credit to general election voters knowing in June and even knowing what those who voted in the primary knew.

Well, I wouldnt be surprised if dems werent doing so well in Maine right now.  Everyone's pretty upset about spending/taxes by dems and especially with the oil spill.  They're going to get pretty much bombed in New Hampshire, including the state legislature.  Everyone I've talked to, and everything I've read in the paper points that way.  Dem legislators are retiring in droves.  Even Lynch's approval ratings are sinking - I wouldn't be surprised if a Lynch defeat is the surprise of the night.
