The Orient sent out a survey to the student body on Monday evening. It closed yesterday afternoon after yielding 653 responses, totaling 36 percent of the student body. Ninety-five percent of respondents were registered to vote, but only 46 percent of those registered were registered in Maine. Seventy percent of students registered as Democrats, while six percent registered as Republicans. Twenty-one percent were unaffiliated. In terms of cross-ticket voting, 15.4 percent of Republican students voted for some Democratic candidate, while 1.3 percent of Democratic students supported any Republican for office. Percentages may not sum to 100 because of rounding. The survey includes a question about independent Alan Caron, who dropped out shortly after it was released.
