Just curious. I consider myself in the "haven't made up my mind" crowd.

I like LePage. His gruff demeanor aside I think he is a no nonsense, non politician, who will focus on Maine's deeply rooted problems. Maine has had it's fill of the old style professional politicians like Libby Mitchell and, through association, Eliot Cutler. Many of my friends believe Eliot Cutler is just a relabeled liberal democrat who will talk change but not deliver. We MUST get the welfare system straightened out in this state. We are simply too poor of a state to have as many people on some form of State assistance as we do. I believe LePage represents the best chance to reform the welfare system.
The other two candidates don't have a prayer in my opinion.

After a quick search on each, if I were there and only knew what I'd just read on line I"d be voting LePage as well. I like the idea of shrinking government size along with taxes and the fact that he supports the second amendment is a HUGE thing for me.

ETA - I didn't participate in the poll since I"m not actually living there (yet) or voting.

Can't believe you wouldn't consider Mr. Collision, he does a bang up job!

Me, too, Elston, but I do worry about Cutler taking votes away from Mitchell.

I am against higher taxes; when reading each candidate's platform I stop [and want to throw-up] at any mention of more bond issues.

We do seem all too eager in this state to bury our descendants underneath a mountain of debt. So it is with the majority of Americans' finances, unfortunately — and what is our government but a representation of the majority?

He DID fly a banner over a Sea Dogs game one day when I was there. If he had a snowball's chance in Hades I might consider him.
BELIEVE me I'm not all that excited about LePage or any of the rest of them for that matter. I just feel that something NEEDS to be done and Le Page seems like he will be hard nosed enough to start the ball rolling in the other direction.
