Non-partisan Mainers want working families and small businesses to be top priority during recovery


As our state begins to reopen, it's important that Mainers have a say in what the road to recovery looks like.


That’s why Mainers for Working Families partnered with other organizations to conduct a 10-state poll, in an effort to understand voters’ priorities during the recovery process. The poll did not accept answers from respondents who identify strongly with any party, in order to focus on the non-partisan, “unheard middle” voters.


According to the poll, non-partisan voters want to see our state government put working families and small businesses first – particularly in providing accessible and affordable health care, and other benefit programs.


Here are some of the results:

  • 90% support low-interest loans for small businesses.

  • 84% support limiting what drug companies can charge for prescriptions.

  • 81% support protecting patients from having to pay the costs not covered by their insurance for out-of-network doctors.

  • 75% support requiring employers to provide paid sick days.

  • 72% support a paid family and medical leave program.

Maine’s “unheard middle” voters want our hard-working families and small businesses to be top priority for our state government, and they want to ensure that they are set up to succeed for years to come.
