Susan Collins is down five points to her Democratic challenger Sara Gideon, a poll released Friday shows.According to a New York Times-Siena College poll, Collins is behind Gideon 44 percent to 49 percent with less than two months before the November 3 elections. The poll did however show that 50 percent of voters view Collins very favorable or somewhat favorable compared to 47 percent who did not feel the same, The Hill reported.(Photo) The poll is one of the latest showing bad signs for Republican’s hopes to maintain control of the Senate.

Too bad Ms Collins couldn’t be a REAL Republican! A weak Republican is always vulnerable to a strong democrat.

Well, wasn't she the deciding vote that got Judge Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court? The real problem in races all over the country, is the enormous amount of money people like Soros and Bloomberg and Steyer are pouring into Democratic coffers.

Collins is probably the best Republicans can do from Maine. But elsewhere there are very weak candidates...Tillis, Gardener, McSally and Ernst all in trouble and horrible candidates. It will be a disaster to lose the Senate.

She is needed only to add one more "R" to result in republican control of the senate. Beyond that, her actual votes and the drama leading up to how that would be, qualified her for the John McCain Maverick Award.

While Collins is not my favorite Republican I don’t think the polling is accurate. Only 633 people were contacted and they didn’t indicate if any Republicans were contacted. The Gideon ads have been vicious and she’s been pulling in outside money from some questionable groups. She’s a terrible leader of the state senate. With all the people moving into ME from NYC, MA,CT, etc. we are inheriting more dems and it’s going to make this state another CA. Sigh.

she is one of the most ineffective members of that branch of congress. her deficit in her poll numbers is all due to her not linking herself to our duly President Donald J. Trump. too bad because, like paul ryan, she could have been a significant force for the good of our country, instead she votes with nitwit romney and some of the other naysayers who disavow our President. DJT will figure it out, he always has. TRUMP 2020 and beyond

it doesn't help when Collins doesn't put enough daylight between herself and her opponent. It alienates the base, and the people she is wooing don't see any real difference. There are likely real issues she could campaign on in Maine like jobs and the economy, but she is too busy trying to look like a Democrat. There is also a fed seat opening, and she is opposing Trump's nomination. Not sure we should trust the poll. Can imagine the NY Times wants to make sure she doesn't flip at the last minute.

If the media unearthed a video of Donald Trump calling our military “stupid bastards,” do you think it would be running 24/7 on every cable news station? You bet it would. What are the chances, however, that this video of Joe Biden doing exactly that will ever get played on CNN? (Tweet/Video) Now, I know what you’re thinking: “That could be doctored.” Sure it could. That was my first thought as well. But then I went searching for the full context and found the whole video. It doesn’t appear doctored in the full video (below at the 1:51 mark).

Since Labor Day President Trump has entertained over 187,000 supporters at his rallies and speeches.During the same period former Obama Vice President Joe Biden has entertained around 84 supporters at his events. In the 2016 election we kept track of event attendance after the Party Conventions for both candidate Trump and Crooked Hillary. We did this because the future President was setting records at seemingly every venue he visited while Hillary could barely fill half a high school gymnasium. By mid-August we determined that President Trump had 10 times the number of attendees at his rallies than Hillary did during the same time. This year it’s worse.
