Round II of Djou vs. Hanabusa is tight, but the Democrat appears positioned to take back the seat, according to a new Civil Beat poll.

Colleen Hanabusa is up 49.5 percent to 45.3 against against incumbent 1st District Congressman Charles Djou, an automated telephone poll of 620 likely voters found. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percent.

"This is one of the few seats that Democrats can reasonably expect to flip nationwide," said Matt Fitch, executive director of Merriman River Group, which conducted the poll on Oct. 23 through its Hawaii subsidiary, Aloha Vote.
