Maine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2032 words)
Maine has since become a left-leaning swing state, but has voted Democratic in four straight elections, casting its votes for Bill Clinton twice, Al Gore in 2000, and John Kerry (with 53.6% of the vote) in 2004.
Maine is the most sparsely populated state east of the Mississippi River, owing in part to its huge relative sizeā€”its land mass exceeds that of all other New England states combined.
For example, the Northwest Aroostook, Maine "territory" in the far north is listed as having an area of 2,668 square miles and a population of 27, or one person for every 100 square miles.
