Civil Beat Poll: Ige Maintains Solid Lead Over Abercrombie

Just a few days before the Aug. 9 primary, Hawaii state Sen. David Ige is up 51-41 over incumbent Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

With barely a week to go before the primary election, state Sen. David Ige has a double-digit lead over Gov. Neil Abercrombie in the race for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, a new Civil beat Poll shows.

A majority of Hawaii voters surveyed statewide, or 51 percent, who say they will vote in the Democratic primary said they would vote for Ige, compared with 41 percent for Abercrombie. Just 8 percent said they are undecided.

The new survey suggests that Ige’s surprisingly strong showing in a Civil Beat Poll published June 12 was no fluke.
