As we predicted, the early pre-primary polls were very misleading. Political experts are now predicting that the three candidates will evenly divide the voters, and force a close examination of the candidate’s qualifications, track record and positions on key issues.
With primary over, attention focused on three-way governor’s race
Excerpts from HawaiiNewsNow – Rick Daysog
• With the primary election over, it’s now a three-way race for governor. And some experts believe the race is closer than recent polls suggest.
• According to political analyst Dan Boylan, “I could see all three candidates pulling a reasonable vote, a 30 percent vote.”
• Hannemann — who was last in and did little advertising before the primary — said his campaign is out to win the race, not play the role of spoiler.
• The election is still two-and-a half months away — plenty of time for the candidates to get the word out.
