Maine’s primary will take place on Super Tuesday. In the 2016 general election, Hillary Clinton won the state with 47.83% of the vote, compared with Donald Trump’s 44.87%. For the first time in its history, Maine split its electoral votes in 2016, three for Clinton and one for Trump. Maine was once a Republican stronghold. It was one of only two states to vote against Franklin Roosevelt in each of his four presidential bids (Vermont was the other), and prior to the 1990s, it had voted Democratic only three times since the Civil War. Maine has a strong independent streak. It was third-party candidate Ross Perot’s best state in 1992 and 1996 — he won 30% of the statewide vote in 1992 and 14% in 1996.
