HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - According to a new poll by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Hawaii voters may be leaning towards electing a new governor.

Results of the survey were released Sunday. It asked potential voters who they would vote for if the election were held today.

The numbers show incumbent David Ige trailing Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa by 20 percentage points in the Democratic Primary.

Former State Senator Clayton Hee trails both Hanabusa and Ige, garnering only 11 percent of the vote.

Trust in the Ige administration crumbled in recent months after the missile alert blunder, and other issues.

On the Republican side, former State Sen. John Carroll leads the GOP vote with 40 percent of poll participants favoring him over current State Rep. Andria Tupola.

The poll showed Tupola with 28 percent of the republican vote.

The poll only represents a select number of voters in the state.

The Primary election will be held on Saturday, August 11 with the General election on November 6, 2018.

Voters may register until the July 12 deadline. Ealy walk-in voting begins July 30.
