August 23, 2012Bangor Daily News - Dill says she’s gaining momentum, but the numbers don’t show it
Democrat Cynthia Dill is trying to show she has momentum in the race for Maine’s open U.S. Senate seat. Republicans are pushing that line, too, as they try to piece together a narrative about former independent Gov. Angus King losing steam in his bid to replace departing Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe.
If Dill is picking up some of King’s momentum, it isn’t obvious. The Moore Consulting poll put her support level at 8 percent. In June, two public surveys, by Critical Insights and by the Boston-based MassINC Polling Group, agreed with that poll, finding 7 percent and 9 percent support for Dill respectively.
