    Maybe you should look at some of the more independent polls. Such as:

    Generic Congressional Ballot - Rasmussen Reports

    http://www.democracycorps.com/wp-con...10fq4.web_.pdf

    Generic Ballot for Congress

    Republicans still lead and it seems to be demonstrated at each election that has happened.

    I guess that just goes to show you can't fix stupid.

    It all depends on which one ran against him. The 2nd place finisher "Hanabusa" was said to be the underdog and party leaders on the national level were encouraging her to drop out. Had it been a Djou vs. Hanabusa, it would have been a fairly close race. The local union leaders did some pretty questionable stuff so their membership base would be able to cast their vote for "their" candidate.

    OTOH, if it was Case vs. Djou, I firmly believe that Djou would have still won, due to the lack of union endorsement, as well as endorsement from Sen. Inouye and our senile senator, Sen. Akaka.

    I'm glad that Djou won, as our mayor "Gufi" Hanneman stated "Come November it will be Representative Djou running for office. There's still a lot of work to be done. I hope he can hold on to the seat come November.
