Civil Beat Poll: Abercrombie Holds Slight Edge in Hawaii Governor's Race
The Hawaii governor's office is up for grabs three weeks before election day, with former Democratic Congressman Neil Abercrombie holding a slight edge over his Republican opponent, Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona, according to a new Civil Beat poll.
Abercrombie leads 47.2 percent to 44.3 percent, with 8.5 percent undecided, an automated telephone poll of 1,151 likely voters found. The survey was conducted Oct. 11 by Aloha Vote, a Hawaii subsidiary of Merriman River Group (MRG), a Connecticut research organization that also polled the 1st Congressional District special election in May and the primary election in September for Civil Beat. The margin of error is +/- 2.9 percent.
