According to Gallup polling 28% of registered voters in Hawaii identify as Republicans, 22% Independant or other parties and 50% Democrat. This means the base of the Republican support is a minimum of 146,000 registered voters.
So why is?
- Primary election participation by Republicans is far below this number.
- Barely 50% of the eligible voters in Hawaii are registered.
Clearly the GOP voter is not inspired by democrat-lite candidates nor the last minute throw someone into the race approach. They deserve and expect strategic new policies and articulate, viable candidates. Hawaii has been stifled by the Democrats endless Pay-2-Play politics and centralized control.
It’s time to change course!
