Maine U.S. Senate and Presidential Election Poll, October 2020

FairVote partnered with SurveyUSA to conduct a poll of the ranked choice voting races in Maine in November 2020. The poll surveyed 1,007 likely voters between October 23 and October 27. In Maine's federal elections, voters use ranked choice voting, where voters rank candidates and their backup choice counts if their first choice can't win.
