Results Among Those Likely to Vote In Primary Election

News Release from Ige for Governor February 24, 2014

HONOLULU – The second gubernatorial poll of Hawaii’s 2014 political season indicates growing support for State Senator David Ige.  The Civil Beat poll shows Ige tied at 37% with his democratic opponent. The poll further illustrates the high unfavorability ratings of Hawaii’s current administration.

Senator David Ige, said, “This is another poll showing Hawaii voters are looking to make our state better. This is a close race, and everyday I’m inspired by the people I meet, as I make my way across the islands to share my vision for Hawaii.  If we listen to one another and work together we can move Hawaii forward.”

Since announcing for office in August 2013, Senator Ige has attended hundreds of coffees and events across the islands, and will continue to introduce himself and reach out to voters until primary election day.

The campaign will be in full swing beginning this Saturday with the grand opening of the Oahu headquarters. Former Governors Ariyoshi and Cayetano will lend their support to David’s bid for governor at the Oahu campaign headquarters opening Saturday, March 1, 2014. The public is invited to attend the event from 11 to 1pm at the Varsity Building at 1110 University Avenue. Guests will also enjoy entertainment from Mountain Apple recording artists Paula and Vergel Jepas with special guests Brother Noland.

For more information on the campaign, please visit and follow the campaign at Facebook and on Twitter @davidige2014.


Civil Beat Poll — A Referendum on Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie?

CB: Ige and Abercrombie are tied at 37 percent apiece among likely Democratic primary voters, the poll shows.  And more than a quarter of those voters, or 26 percent, say they are unsure of who they'll vote for….

For the governor's poll, Civil Beat surveyed 1,003 registered Hawaii voters Feb. 12-15. Of those, 643 said they were likely to pull the Democratic ballot in the Aug. 9 primary.

The poll, which included landlines and cell phone users, has a 3.1 percent margin of error. We did not ask voters about Duke Aiona….

…the Abercrombie campaign might well be concerned that 46 percent of voters have a negative opinion of their candidate and that many voters seem to prefer anybody but Abercrombie….

…most voters have made up their mind about him, and he has a sizable well of support: 42 percent of voters say they have a positive impression of him with just 12 percent unsure. Compare that figure to the 31 percent who like Ige but the 56 percent who said they are unsure about him….

…Abercrombie, who is white, polls best among Caucasians. Maui voters like him most, urban Oahu voters least. He gets high marks from liberals. But a majority of union households — 58 percent — disapprove of the governor.

Ige, who is Japanese-American, does best among Japanese. He is largely an unknown quantity on all the islands. Conservatives favor him the most ideologically. And he is not well-known among union households….
