Wa Po The Fix 50: Djou moves up 15 places

Below you'll find our rankings of the 50 House races most likely to switch parties in the fall.

47th. Hawaii's 1st district (Republican controlled): This is one of those districts where both sides really seem to like their chances, as special election-winning Rep. Charles Djou (R) faces state Sen. Colleen Hanabusa (D). (Previous ranking: 32nd) 

(Four more notches and Djou’s seat won’t be in the 50 most likely to change hands.)

National Review: Your Daily ‘Can This Be True?’ Polls

It seems each day brings some poll almost too good to be true for Republicans….  In Hawaii:

The race for Hawaii governor is in a dead heat between Neil Abercrombie and Duke Aiona, according to the latest poll.

It’s 48 percent for Abercrombie, 48 percent for Aiona. It’s not a statewide sampling, but instead represents much of Oahu.

The poll was taken by Public Policy Polling over the weekend on behalf of the online political blog Daily Kos. It surveyed more that 640 voters in the First Congressional District and found the governor’s race neck and neck.

The margin of error in the poll is cited as plus or minus 3.9 percent. According to the polling organization, 43 percent of respondents identified as Democratic, 22 percent as Republican and 35 percent independent.

Obviously, that congressional district is only half the state and is the one represented by Republican Charles Djou. But Aiona wasn’t supposed to come close this year.
