    Why is the Independent Liberal an idiot? If he is more liberal than the Democrat, and as some polling reports show can beat LePage on his own, I say support him. Worked for the Senate race.

  2. Delaware Dem says:

    Simple. He does not learn from his mistakes. He ran in 2010, and he and the Democrat split the left of center vote, allowing the teabagger LePage to be elected with 30% of the vote. If he runs again as an Independent, he will again split the vote, just as this poll shows, and he will reelect the teabagger. If he wants to be elected Governor, he must run in the Democratic Primary. He should be able to win, given his significant base of support.

    why didnt the Democrat split the vote and prevent the Independant from winning? Maine is a pretty wacky state, I would really like to see a rise of Liberal Independants who dont have to pretend they are in the same party as Carper and the Bluedogs. (I realize the bluedogs aer mostly in congress and this is for gov) I dont like this “run as a democrat because democrats have to win” for the sake of electing democrats. I would like to see liberals win.
