Candidates' respective websites

WASHINGTON — Colleen Hanabusa doubled her advantage over Republican Charles Djou in about a month, pointing to another term for the Democrat, according to The Civil Beat Poll.

A survey of voters across the state between Oct. 24 and Oct. 26 showed both Hanabusa and Tulsi Gabbard on track to keep Hawaii's two seats in the U.S. House of Representatives blue. Hanabusa's edge was 54 percent to 43 percent among 657 likely general election voters in the 1st congressional district, while Gabbard's lead was 73 percent to 15 percent among 562 voters in the 2nd congressional district. The margins of error were 3.8 percent and 4.1 percent, respectively.1

Hanabusa's 11-point advantage is up from the 49 percent to 44 percent lead Civil Beat found in the first post-primary-election survey of the race conducted Sept. 26 to Sept. 28.

For Djou, there's not much time left to turn things around and not much flexibility left in the electorate.
