Pulling a JJ? Obama should be up by more than 19.

CT is the 2nd most Republican state in New England after NH, though it is a distant 2nd. Obama will win, but isn't likely to break 60 here against Romney.

Third, after Maine.

I think it's slightly ahead of Maine as the state is more suburban. Maine has more Republicans elected, but those Republicans are barely Republicans.

Neither could be won by a conservative candidate.

Paul LePage is pretty much a fire breathing conservative, and yet he won in Maine. Granted the Democrats ran a bad campaign, but he isn't exactly unpopular as a Governor there.

He won with 38% of the vote.

http://bangordailynews.com/2011/05/17/politics/poll-finds-lepage-approval-rating-at-31-percent/

"More than half of Mainers disapprove of Gov. Paul LePage’s job performance, according to a poll released Tuesday.

The poll, conducted by Portland-based Critical Insights, finds that 54 percent of those surveyed say they disapproved of how LePage, a Republican, is handling the job less than five months into his tenure. Thirty-one percent said they approved of LePage’s job performance. Fifteen percent were undecided."

31% Approve
54% Disapprove
15% Undecided

http://bangordailynews.com/2011/03/15/politics/poll-shows-lepage-approval-rating-at-43-percent/
That is down from two months earlier
43% Approve
48% Disapprove

That's definitely low.   I can't find anything more recent than May so maybe they have gone up.  31% approval is on par with the least popular Governors, in fact I think only Rick Scott has had approval ratings lower than 31%

Party ID says CT is the most Democratic state in all of New England. Maine is way more Republican. Other states can be debated but ME and NH are far more Republican.

It's pretty difficult for any candidate to break 50 in a gubernatorial election in Maine.

Yes because Maine has a huge independent streak(The vast majority of ME voters are registered indies). And a independent's in many cases gain more then 10%-20% in Gubernatorial and other elections in the state, making things unpredictable for both big parties in the state.
