Earlier polling showed bad news for progressives regarding the TABOR spending cap in Maine facing the electorate this November. Those numbers showed over 70% of the state's voters supporting the ballot measure. New numbers contain significantly better news. The new poll shows the spending measure with support of 54% of the electorate, opposed by 25%, and 21% undecided. Getting voters to "no" is easier than getting voters to "yes" on ballot initiatives. This fight isn't won, but it just may be headed in the correct direction.
