Civil Beat Poll -- 56% Democrats
By Gov. Linda Lingle @ 10:20 PM :: 6094 Views :: Energy, Environment

From  October 31, 2012

Aloha Team,

We've come down to the final days of this historic election and we are seeing my opponent and her political operatives pulling out all the stops to defeat me for the open U.S. Senate seat that they believe belongs to one political party.

Honolulu Civil Beat released a new poll this morning, which shows me with a double digit gap to make up in just 6 days. Like you, I do not believe a word of these polls, which are funded by media organizations and political power brokers who simply do not want to see a moderate Republican in office.

The methodology used by the Civil Beat's pollster over samples Democrats, using 56% self-identified Democrats. Our nationally-recognized pollster believes this figure should be 42%, based on historical Hawaii exit polling data. They aren't as far off as the Star-Advertiser (who uses 60%), but they do over-sample key voting blocks including Democrats and others.

You have been with me since day one and I am still confident that we can make history together! Do not be deterred by these skewed polls, which we know are not representative of what is really happening on the ground.

Since my Council days others have said I couldn't win. Over and over again, YOU AND I HAVE PROVED THEM WRONG. Our path to victory is positive and strong, and will deliver a stunning result next Tuesday.

I have heard recently from so many supporters who reinforced their unwavering dedication to this campaign. We will win this election with a final, all-out, concerted, high-energy focus on turning out OUR voters. You can make a difference by ensuring your 'ohana, friends, colleagues, and employees get out to vote for me early. Early walk-in voting is available until Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.

We also need assistance with phone banking each night at our headquarters statewide (See addresses below). By calling OUR voters you will help me deliver the winning coalition.

You know that this is a tied race and every single vote will matter.
