Former Gov. Linda Lingle’s Republican campaign for U.S. Senate on Wednesday released the results of an internal poll that showed her trailing U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono by single digits.
The poll, conducted by Voter/Consumer Research of Washington, D.C., had the Democrat Hirono up over Lingle 47 percent to 43 percent. The poll was taken among 1,200 likely voters statewide from Oct. 9 to Oct. 16. The margin of error was 2.8 percentage points.
Hirono’s internal polls — and other public-opinion polls — have the Democrat with a double-digit lead over Lingle.
