This coming week, voters head to the polls for Super Tuesday and Maine's first presidential primary in 20 years. And there will be something else to draw people to the polls: voters will be asked whether the state should scrap a new law that ends religious and philosophical exemptions for childhood vaccinations.

Maine Public’s Irwin Gratz, Steve Mistler and Mal Leary discuss that referendum and potential complications surrounding Ballot question language.

On this week’s episode of Maine's Political Pulse, Morning Edition host Irwin Gratz and political reporters Mal Leary and Steve Mistler discussed a new statewide poll that gives us an early look at the electoral landscape as we head into Super Tuesday and the Democratic presidential primary. As Leary points out, there's also some cautionary information for Republican Senator Susan Collins, who appears to be in a virtual tie with Sara Gideon, one of the Democrats seeking to challenge her in November.
