A news release from www.DCCC.org announces:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Global Strategy Group poll that shows Democrat Colleen Hanabusa gaining ground and leading Republican Representative Charles Djou by 4 percent.
But that 4% is within the 4.9% margin of error this poll.
In the initial head-to-head in the race for Hawaii’s 1st congressional district, Hanabusa leads Djou 48 percent to 44 percent. Conducted October 4-6, the poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a 4.9 percent margin of error.
No internals have yet been released so it is impossible to determine how the Democrats may have manipulated this poll result.
Democrats and the AFL-CIO have been flooding the airwaves and the mailboxes with debunked claims labeled “false” by FactCheck.org and mocked by the Washington Post. The leftist KOS poll and the Democrat poll would make up a polling trend which indicates that these Democrat lies are working. But neither poll is independent, so it is impossible to know whether these poll numbers are merely atmospherics to go along with the barrage of lies.
Notably the Democrats have not yet released any results from this poll regarding the Gubernatorial race. This is not a good sign for Abercrombie who was in a statistical tie with Aiona in the KOS poll.
