ME: Better Numbers on TABOR Spending Cap Proposal

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.
