Djou Not Underestimate the Newest House Republican



Text  



This fits in with a recent pattern that has mostly featured GOP challengers to incumbent House Democrats.

Just two-and-a-half months after winning his special election in HI-01, a new poll from Rep. Charles Djou’s (R) camp shows he starts the general election in a rather strong position. In the survey, Djou led state Senate Pres. Colleen Hanabusa (D) 50-42%.

The poll, which surveyed 400 LVs and was conducted by the Tarrance Group from 7/26-27, had a margin of error of +/- 4.9%. 

Let’s make this easier: Does any Republican running for the House this year not have internal polls that look great? Anybody at all? No? Okay, glad that’s settled.
