Bottom Line

Nearly half of Maine’s voters live in a Pivot County—counties that voted twice for Barack Obama and then for Donald Trump.  Under the right circumstances, that dynamic could spell potential trouble for incumbent Senator Angus King. But, it doesn’t look like those circumstances will arise in 2018.
