We need PPP to confirm if this is indeed true. That would be a bigger upset than Scott Brown.

How is there so much disparity between the Rasmussen poll and the PPP poll?

Rasmussen is a hack, Tom Jensen is not.

Funny, I feel the exact opposite.

     There is definitely far more evidence for the latter being a hack than the former.

I think you meant the opposite.

I wouldn't call losing by 13 an upset . . .

     Really, there's little evidence for either of them being a hack, not to mention they head the two best polling firms in the business. With the volume of polls Rasmussen puts out, of course there's going to be the occasional one that's wildly off.

No not that he would win. That Inouye would get below 55% of the vote.

Inouye winning by 13 would not really be an upset. It would just be a big win in a Republican election cycle.

Inouye losing would be a huge upset - he's been in Congress since Hawaii became a state in 1959, first in the House, then the Senate.  It's not going to happen, though.

This poll was truly an epic epic fail.

PPP had Inouye up 65-29 while showing Abercrombie up 49-47 for Governor a couple weeks ago, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is an outlier, especially since Cavasso got a whopping 21% in 2004.

The best part is that the PPP poll was actually too harsh on Inouye, too.

Presumably the decimal point on the margin of error was misplaced.

Nate Silver nominated this poll as the worst of the last decade.

You mean 85-year-old Mrs. Hashimoto, who is reluctant to tell even a real live stranger over the phone who she's going to vote for, is even more reluctant to tell an automated robot voice? Shocker.

Yes.  As I've said on many a Hawaii poll thread, beware of Hawaiian polls from mainland pollsters.  They simply don't get that a significant portion of the population - generally women of Japanese-Hawaiian descent - are reluctant to tell pollsters anything.

Besides PPP, the other robopollsters failed miserably this season.

Underestimating the spread by over 40 points? This would be a good contender.

There was a poll during the 2008 Presidential Campaign which suggested that McCain would win over two-thirds of the 18-29 vote.
