People-to-People Campaign Lifts Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate

State Senator David Ige to 11-point Lead in Latest Poll

News Release from Ige Campaign June 12, 2014

Honolulu, HI (June 12, 2014) — Fueled by community building support from across the state, Democratic gubernatorial candidate State Senator David Ige leads in the most current—non-campaign paid—poll with an 11-point lead over the incumbent governor. The latest Civil Beat poll released moments ago shows Senator Ige with 48 percent to 37 percent, with 15 percent undecided. Civil Beat’s previous poll, released in February, had both candidates tied at 37 percent.

“Although the latest poll is just a snapshot today, it confirms that our campaign’s grassroots community building efforts are working as momentum builds across the state,” said Senator Ige, who continues a two-day campaign visit on the island of Hawaii. “We have the advantage because this is an expanding  friend-to-friend, community-to-community campaign based on earning the vote, listening to the people, and not buying it with millions in advertising.” Ige anticipates the next eight weeks will be dominated with advertising from the governor’s campaign and his allies opposed to his candidacy.

Ige ended, “As this most recent poll validates, I am confident that with the people’s continued dedication and hard work across the state over the next eight weeks, we will be victorious on election day.”

CB: Ige holds Healthy Lead over Abercrombie

CB: Less than two months before the Aug. 9 primary for Hawaii governor, state Sen. David Ige leads Gov. Neil Abercrombie by 11 percentage points among likely Democratic voters.

Ige has 48 percent of the vote compared with 37 percent for Abercrombie. Fifteen percent of those surveyed say they are undecided.

The poll numbers indicate a dramatic turn of events for the incumbent governor who has raised millions for his re-election campaign and is advertising heavily. Ige, the Senate Ways and Means chair little known outside his Pearl City-Aiea district, has raised little money and is not running TV ads so far.

Ige’s double-digit lead caught us by surprise, too. We first polled the race May 18-19 and found a similar double-digit lead. We decided to take a step back and conduct a second poll....
