Ward Polls: A Laughable Embarrassment
By News Release @ 2:36 PM :: 5445 Views :: Energy, Environment

From www.lingle2012.com

Statement from General Bob Lee, Lingle for U.S. Senate Campaign Manager, regarding Ward Research October poll:

“This is another skewed poll from Ward Research whose methodology is wildly out of step with that of real political polling firms.

“Most recently in the Democrat Primary election, the Ward poll showed Tulsi Gabbard losing to Mufi Hannemann by 10 points and she went on to win by 21 – a more than 30 point difference. That Ward poll was laughable in July for those of us working with legitimate political pollsters and after the primary in August it became an embarrassment for those who paid for it.

“Our nationally recognized pollster pointed out the flaws in the methodology of the Ward poll, noting that the distribution used by the Star Advertiser’s poll as too Democratic (60%) and not representative of historic exit polling data in Hawaii (see memo dated 10/26/12 attached).

“Based on incredibly strong debates by Governor Lingle, our most recent tracking poll shows this race is a statistical dead heat. During the debates, the voters – even those who are unlikely Lingle supporters – were able to see that Mazie Hirono does not have the leadership history and qualifications to be an effective U.S. Senator.

“We believe in Linda Lingle, we believe in her record of leadership, and we believe in our plan to win this election. Nothing in this wacky Ward Research poll changes a single thing we are doing or planning to do.”
