Hawaii Cannot Afford Colleen Hanabusa #3

Hanabusa Lacks Support from Independent and Young Voters of Hawaii

Hawaii’s future generation will bear the burden of our political decisions, especially our decisions on government spending and growing the national deficit.  Independent voters are also an important part of Hawaii’s political landscape. 

Young and first time voters, like Nick Djou, who casted his first vote this afternoon, will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our state and nation.  We need a leader who can unify young voters, independent voters and well as Democrat and Republicans alike.  As we close in on Election Day, polls show Charles Djou is the leader Hawaii needs to do this.

A poll released by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and Hawaii News Now shows Colleen Hanabusa in trouble. Across the board, she is struggling not only to make inroads with independent voters and younger voters but also struggling to seal the deal with her own party and union members.

  • The poll showed that 65 percent of independents view Hanabusa unfavorably.
  • The poll showed that 64 percent would cast their vote for Charles Djou if the election were held today.
  • Similarly, 61 percent of younger voters had a favorable impression of Charles Djou while only 43 percent had a favorable opinion of Hanabusa.
  • Nearly 60 percent of younger voters would vote for Charles if the election were held today.
  • Interestingly 36 percent of union members and 18 percent of Democrats would vote for Charles Djou if the election were held today - constituencies that are should be a shoo-in for the Hanabusa campaign.

Clearly, the momentum is now solidly behind Charles Djou and his message of fiscal responsibility and government accountability. The Djou coalition is vibrant, strong and growing, while Hanabusa’s support is shrinking and she is even losing significant parts of her base. These numbers fly in the face of predictions that Charles Djou would stand no chance in a head to head campaign against the establishment.

Charles' campaign has always represented change and continues to pick up support from voters of all types because the people of Hawaii's First Congressional District are tired of the status quo.
