Raleigh, N.C. – PPP's newest Maine poll finds that if Susan Collins is the Republican candidate for Senate next year, she'll get reelected. Collins is one of the most popular Senators in the country, with 63% of voters approving of her to 24% who disapprove. She accomplishes the incredibly rare feat in these times of having at least a 60% approval across party lines- she's at 66/24 with Republicans, 64/24 with independents, and 60/25 with Democrats.
Collins would easily dispatch either of her state's members of Congress in a head to head match up. Despite Mike Michaud's own stellar 58/23 favorability rating, Collins would lead him 54/36 in a head to head match up. And Collins' lead over Chellie Pingree would be even more substantial at 58/33.
