Rasmussen Reports, 11/3

Governor Races

Are you ready to vote today? Rasmussen Reports has compiled a last minute assessment of the major governor races throughout the country.

In Colorado, Republican Bob Beauprez leads with 49 percent of the vote to John Hickenlooper’s 47 percent. The numbers are negligible and it is difficult to predict who will win in this state.

We wrote about Connecticut the other day and the numbers are still very similar. Democrat Dan Malloy is expected to receive 48 percent of the vote to Foley’s 47 percent.

What about Florida? Despite Republican Rick Scott’s reputation, he will head into Election Day tied with Charlie Crist with 47 percent of the vote.

Hawaii will likely be won by Democrat David Ige, who currently has 40 percent of the vote. His Republican opponent, Duke Aiona secured 39 percent.

Illinois is a tight race. Republican Bruce Rauner has 48 percent of the vote to Pat Quinn’s 47. This one is a toss-up and it is impossible to say what the results will be given the information at hand.

Maine is another toss-up state. Republican Paul LePage appears to have 41 percent of the vote to Mike Michaud’s 40 percent.

Massachusetts, a blue state, appears to be heading towards the red side. 48 percent of the voters prefer Republican Charlie Baker, while 46 percent like Martha Coakley.

In Michigan, Republican Rick Snyder currently has 49 percent of the vote to Mark Schauer’s 46 percent. The election could end up either way, but the current numbers clearly favor Snyder.

Wisconsin is another toss-up. Democrat Mary Burke leads with 49 percent to Scott Walker’s 48 percent. This poll is well within the margin of error and could swing either way.

Hawaii Governor: Close Race between Ige and Aiona

Rasmussen Reports, 9/9 – 9/10

Hawaii Governor

  • David Ige – Democrat – 40%
  • Duke Aiona – Republican – 39%
  • Mufi Hannemann – Independent – 14%
  • Other – 2%
  • Undecided – 6%

A recent Rasmussen Reports poll has revealed a close race between the Democrat David Ige and his Republican opponent Duke Aiona for the Hawaii Governor. The poll asked 750 likely voters who they would vote for if an election were to occur as of today. The poll had a margin of error of 4%. The results were very close. Ige secured 40% of the votes, while his opponent Aiona received 39%. Coming in third place was the independent Hannemann with 14%. 2% of voters liked different candidates and 6% were undecided.

The demographics for this poll were as follows: 51% were male, 49% female, 21% were aged 18-39, 57% were 40-64, and 22% were 65+, 47% were white, while 53% were non-white, and 45% identified as Democrats, 21% Republican, and 34% identified with a different party all together. The demographics for this poll are different than a typical Rasmussen Report’s poll. Generally, 70% of their voters identify as white, but in this poll, non-white voters outnumbered white voters.

Aiona had a strong approval rating of 63% and a disapproval rating of 30%, while Ige’s was slightly lower at 59% and 26%. 2% of voters have never heard of Aiona and 4% have never heard of Ige. Their numbers are very similar and it is difficult to speculate who had the advantage at the present moment.

In terms of accountability, 38% of the voters trust Aiona to handle government spending, while 35% trust Ige. For taxes, 38% believe in Aiona and 37% for Ige.  On social issues, both candidates were tied at 39%. For ethics and corruption, Aiona scored 41% and Ige 34%. Finally, 86% of voters claimed that they were certain to vote.
