As you may know, there is also an election for U.S. senator this year. If the Democratic Primary for U.S. Senate were held today, who would you vote for:

50% Colleen Hanabusa
42% Brian Schatz

Anyone know if they're reliable because that would be a big change in the race.

In 2010 and 2012 they had the best polls, so yeah (but like all pollsters were way off in 2010).

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2010/governor/hi/hawaii_governor_aiona_vs_abercrombie-1163.html

From what I know, they didn't poll the 2008/2012 Presidential races (Obama blowouts), or the 2010 Senate race (another blowout).

Ward Research is a local Hawaiian pollster.  They probably have more expertise in polling Hawaii than mainland pollsters like Merriman River Group, which polled for Civil Beat.  That being said, local pollster doesn't necessarily mean better pollster.

The weather might be a factor in Saturday's election.  Hawaii is currently in the path of Hurricane Iselle, which is predicted to weaken into a tropical storm before hitting the islands Thursday into Friday.  Roads might be a mess on Saturday in the aftermath of the storm.

Ward Research is the more accurate (or less inaccurate Tongue) one, per Harry Enten.

Nah, from what I heard it won't effect it. Hawaii News Now had an article about how the Hurricane will miss most of Hawaii's main islands, but they took it down.

The Big Island is smack in the middle of the National Hurricane Center's 5-day cone, albeit as a tropical storm, not a hurricane.  At a minimum, it still should bring a lot of rain to the islands.  Perhaps not damaging winds, though.

This is the same poll that said Aiona is leading by 7 on Ige in the governor's race.

We'll see soon enough who's right and who's not, Ward or MRG.

^ They have Abercrombie getting crushed in the primary though. The Ige lead is consistent throughout the polls and I think he's up by about 10 overall. I don't see as many Ige/Schatz voters as the polls suggest.

I think there will be some crossover, but if Abercrombie loses by >10 points, that's gonna really drag Schatz down.

Turns out that no poll was right.

PPP was off by 9 (Schatz+10) and Ward was also off by 9 (Hanabusa+8).

Ward had the best Governor poll though.

The "best" Senate poll was by MRG (Schatz+8).

So poll averages really are the best solution. Wink

It's a really good thing that Hawaii isn't a swing state. We would have literally no idea what was going to happen until the votes had been counted!
