To: Interested PartiesFr: Pete BrodnitzDate: October 2, 2012Re: Recent Polling ResultsThe results of our recent poll of likely general election voters in Hawaii show that with just over a monthuntil Election Day Congresswoman Mazie Hirono holds a 17-point lead over former Governor Linda Lingleand comfortably receives over 50% of the vote. BSG polling accurately
predicted Mazie Hirono’s 17%
victory margin over Ed Case in the Democratic Primary.
Hirono Expands Lead; Holds Majority
In the race for U.S. Senate, Hirono leads Lingle by 17%. Hirono receives a majority of the vote (54%),while Lingle receives 37%, 1% volunteer another candidate, and 9% are undecided. When we pushundecided voters to express a preference
, Hirono’s lead increases to 18%
. Hirono has more
definite 
 supporters (42%) than Lingle has
total 
supporters (37%). Hirono
’s current lead represents an increase
from her 11% advantage in our July survey.

don’t know) Which candidate do you lean toward? (If support a candidate) Will you 
definitely vote for Hirono/Lingle or probably vote for Hirono/Lingle?
