`We’re not going away’

Former congressman Ed Case on Tuesday released the results of an internal poll that showed him up over U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono 46 percent to 45 percent among likely voters in their Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. Nine percent were undecided.

The automated poll was taken by Public Strategy Group, a Boston research group, among 668 likely primary voters on May 15 and May 16. The margin of error was 3.8 percentage points.

“But for now, the bottom line is really this: Mazie, as much as you want to ignore us, we’re still here and we’re not going away,” Case said at a news conference at his campaign headquarters at Ward Warehouse.

Aides to the Hirono campaign say their internal polls show Hirono with a solid lead.

*Update: Guy Cecil, the executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said Case’s poll does not line up with other public and private polling. The DSCC, which helps elect Democrats to the Senate, prefers Hirono over Case in the primary.

“This is only the most recent example of Ed Case releasing highly questionable polling results that don’t line up with any public or private polling,” Cecil said in a statement.

“Despite these results (from Case’s third pollster this cycle), everything I have seen suggests that Hawaii voters are strongly supporting Mazie Hirono by double digits in the primary and that she has the strongest chances of winning the general election.”

    Polls are not accurate and based on assumptions and approximations.
