What’s at stake in the primary?
The state has been allocated 32 total delegates, including 24 pledged delegates and 8 super delegates. Maine has a closed primary, meaning that citizens registered with opposing parties will not be able to vote in the Democratic primary.
Who does the polling say is ahead?
Sen. Bernie Sanders has a 69% chance of winning the most votes in the state, according to FiveThirtyEight’s election forecast.
The second-most likely winner is Joe Biden, with a 15% chance.
A Colby poll that ran between February 10 and February asked prospective Maine voters who they would vote for “if the Maine Democratic primary for president was held today?”
Sanders carried the poll with a quarter of respondents. Of the remaining Democratic candidates, Bloomberg was the runner-up, with 14% of survey participants saying they’d support the billionaire.
