The results of the latest Hawaii News Now/Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii Poll” for the 2nd Congressional District Seat were released Sunday evening, showing Democrat Mufi Hannemann with a double-digit lead over his nearest primary opponent, 43-33%. Only 9% of those polled said they were undecided:
With just thirteen days left before the August 11th primary, Hannemann holds strong leads in several key demographic groups, including women (44-29%) and voters on the neighbor islands (44-29%). Neighbor island voters, defined as voters who live in Hawaii County, Maui County, and Kauai County, represent nearly two-thirds of the electorate.
The Hawaii News Now/Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii Poll” was conducted by Ward Research, Inc. of Honolulu from July 12-21. The poll surveyed 343 likely Democratic primary voters, with a margin of error of ±5.3%.
The results of the latest Hawaii News Now/Honolulu Star-Advertiser “Hawaii Poll” corroborate the findings of Hannemann’s own internal polling, conducted during the same time period, which also showed him with a strong lead heading into the final weeks before the August 11th primary election.
Mufi Hannemann stated, “It is clear that our campaign’s positive message is resonating with the voters of Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District. It’s time to send a leader to Congress who can bring people together from Day One to get the job done based on a proven track record of results, not a record number of promises made in the course of a campaign.”
Hannemann concluded, “Hawaii deserves an experienced representative who can work collaboratively to build a brighter future for our keiki, kūpuna, and middle-class families.”
