Uh-Oh: Trump's Lead in Maine's 2nd Congressional District Has Collapsed

Donald Trump making history and splitting Maine's Electoral College votes for the first time ever seemed all but certain in September. Now, his lead--which was once in the double digits--has all but collapsed as a new poll shows Trump with only a one-point lead over Clinton.

The poll, conducted by the left-leaning Maine People's Resource Center, has Trump polling at 40.4 in the more rural of Maine's two congressional districts to Clinton's 38.8. In September, Trump had a 10-point lead in CD2.

Obviously, this isn't ideal for the Trump campaign as Election Day draws nearer. That's a large drop in a very short period of time. It will be very interesting to see what happens in Maine's 2nd district on Election Day--it's probably going to be down to the wire.
