New poll shows favor for Kahele in Gabbard's district
A new poll found that at least half of the voters in Gabbard's district would prefer someone else in her House seat.
Two out of three Democratic primary voters in Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District say U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard should give up her presidential aspirations, according to a new survey released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling.
The poll also found that at least half of the voters in Gabbard's district would prefer someone else in her House seat.
While accurate polling is notoriously difficult in Hawaii, neither of those numbers spell good news for Gabbard, someone who once was considered one of the Aloha State's most popular politicians.
In a head-to-head primary match-up, the poll found voters still preferred Gabbard over Kahele 48% to 26% with 27% still undecided.
Although that gives Gabbard with a 22-point cushion, it does indicate that a race between her and Kahele — who's already received the endorsement of three former governors — would be tighter than any she's faced since first being elected to Congress in 2012.https://www.kitv.com/story/41142391/new-poll-shows-favor-for-kahele-in-gabbards-district
