I have now read of two confirmed reports of Blas supporters that switched to the Democratic ticket just so they could vote against Hanohano.
I think this is ridiculous, however, it’s a free country and you can do what you want to do.
I think this shows just how strong Hanohano’s popularity is.
She wasn’t just going against Marzi and Sparks… She was going against the Blas voters that were trying to toss the election…Since they new their candidate was already in the door since no one was running against him in the primaries.
A pretty sneaky thing to do… but whatever, Hanohano survived and most likely w/ Obama on the Democratic Ticket, will also pick up more democratic votes in the General Election.
Here is the first comment I read:
“Do not count the low turnout on the Republican side as negative toward Fred Blas.
At least in my case, I had to vote Democratic, as I wanted to cast a ballot against Ms. Hanohano. I know of other similar cases.
I believe there will be a much closer margin between the two in the general election.”
Here is a more recent comment:
“why do you say “tried to toss”?
that is implying more then you can know.
Had I wanted Fred to go up against the weakest candidate, I would have voted for Hanohano. Did you ever think that maybe people want to vote so that the we can chose between the best and brightest?”
Why do I say “Toss”… Because you didn’t vote for the candidate that you will choose in the General Election one way or the other.
You simply tried to put someone else in as a candidate that you thought Blas would have an easier time winning against later on down the road.
