FREEP THIS POLL! U.S. House Race for HAWAII Seat
Self | 04/12/2010 | Self

Posted on 04/12/2010 12:51:28 PM PDT by Proud2BAmerican

Please take a moment to help FREEP this poll. It is an online poll for the Honolulu Advertiser, and it is for the election to replace the seat vacated by former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie. Hawaii has a legitimate chance to be Massachusetts The Sequel, with Charles Djou (R), a fiscal, common-sense conservative, challenging the union-backed Colleen Hanabusa (D) and Democrat Ed Case (who paints himself as a "moderate" and "independent" but is really another tax-and-spender). The narrative played out in local media is that Charles is a longshot, but Cook Political Report has revised their assessment twice so far, and now I believe it is toss-up. The poll is on the paper's main page at

www.honoluluadvertiser.com


TOPICS: US: Hawaii; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: 111th; 2010midterms; abercrombie; congress; djou; edcase; election; hanabusa; hawaii; hi2010; house

Hanabusa will win. Of the candidates interviewed, she’s the only one who said that the government must keep its promise to its elderly retirees’ regarding their health plan benefits.

Question - does showing more in support actually work in opposition to the good guy? Doesn’t it mean the Democrats will work even harder to defeat him? Maybe if they think the groundswell is small they’ll forget about him and compete amongst themselves. Since there are no primaries and it’s winner take all with a gazillion Democrats to one well-known Republican player, we stand to win if they split the votes on the democrats.

The ads they’re running against him are as disgusting as you’ll find. Claiming he favored giving tax breaks to companies that send labor overseas. The FACTS are that he is in favor of tax breaks for EVERYONE who pays taxes. If you start coming up with exceptions - yeah, tax breaks for everyone EXCEPT A, B, C, and D, they’ll find another “evil” group that you support a tax break for. Democrats are slime.

She’s probably got the best odds since Inouye and Akaka will play dirty against Case. Ain’t local politics fun? (/sarcasm). My hope is that most of the people in the district aren’t former union players.

Do you have any recent poll numbers for councilman Djou? Keeping any eye on Florida 19 with Lynch being a possible winner tomorrow. Getting Obama’s “home” district and taking Florida ought to send a message.

Charles Djou was interviewed on RedEye - seemed like a normal, common sense conservative. He would send yet another message if he won in socialist Hawaii.

I'm not sure. I see merit to your argument, but then the counter to that is that you don't want your supporters thinking it's a lost cause so they don't bother to show up on voting day.

I think it says something that the DCCC has gotten so heavily involved over here in what should be an automatic win for them -- they are obviuosly seeing something about the race that frightens the bejeezus out of them, that the very real possibiliyt of an upset is materializing.

Yes, please please people click the link and cast a vote for Charles Djou. It is important to send up opposition to the ongoing media narrative that Djou doesn’t have a chance.

He is just that. He’s extremely fiscally conservative, and he’s a former Army Reserve officer. Local boy too. His win would generate more national attention on the groundswell uprising of conservatives getting active and taking back political offices.

Oddly the recent poll numbers I heard on the radio the other day had Case far out in the lead, with Djou trailing a little ways back, and Hanabusa in the rear. I never heard the radio talk show host (either Rick Hamada or Mike Buck, I forget which — on 890 KHVH AM radio) say the numbers. I was under the impression that Case is thought by mainland DCCC to have the best chance of winning.

Okay I voted. There is a TV commercial put out by the lefty Hanabusa where she said if she is sent to Washington she will fight with all she has against anyone who apposes Obama. In Hawaii, that alone might get her elected. It's really that bad here. Aloha

I went to Djou’s website awhile back and E mailed him to say that he had a fine website but does not say on it, how he feels about abortion, cap and trade, Obamacare, etc. etc. I asked that he or his staff get back to me to fill me in on these subjects but I have not heard a word back. Yes, I know he is a Republican BUT who is he really. (possible RINO? who knows if they don’t ask)

Thanks for the effort! We are down 41-26.9 to the leader, Hanabusa. Hopefully we can narrow that gap some!

His position on abortion is diappointing. But overall, he’s a good, solid fiscally conservative candidate. In Hawaii, that’s something we don’t see a whole lot of — but the times are changing. http://www.kitv.com/news/22861964/detail.html

That graphic embedded into the thread was so cool! How did you do that??! Thanks very much for the update — I just checked, and it’s down to a 38.8-28.8 gap, in Hanabusa’s favor.

Maybe Djou can peel off some of the voters who support Case (thinking that Case is an independent-minded pol) if they think Case is not strong enough to win. I could see a lot of Case supporters who think he might be more fiscally responsible turn to Djou in that event.

Definitely not a RINO on fiscal issues. Good guy on the city council, one of the few. He’s definitely better than anyone else on the ticket. We know both Case and Hanabusa would have voted for Obamacare definitely. Djou would not. Right now the main issue is the budget and taxes, and Djou is the man for that! Coming up in November Mazie has a worthy opponent as well, though that hasn’t gotten publicity yet with the Djou/Hanabusa/Case race going strong. Considering the voting percentages here, we have a good chance of pulling this off. Djou voters are definitely more hyped.

Here’s hoping he can turn out supporters big time on May 22!! Again, if people haven’t yet clicked, please go to www.honoluluadvertiser.com and click on Djou for the online poll! As far as Hirono — I’m aware of TWO good candidates who are running against her: Ramsay Wharton and John Willoughby!

It’s all mail-in, so we’ll see what happens. Our son has an apartment in his district (we’re in Mazie’s....sigh) and he’s made sure his voter registration is up to date.
