45 percent said 1 or 2, while just 25 percent said 4 or 5, suggesting stronger support for Hirono against Lingle among Democrats. Because the poll was of likely Democratic primary voters, there are no head-to-head general election matchup numbers. Both candidates are well-known by Democrats. Hirono's fav/unfav split in the poll (72/21 percent) was better than Case's (61/28 percent). The Benenson Strategy Group survey of 800 likely Democratic primary voters was conducted from Nov. 15-19 and carries a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percent.
