Head Shot of Charles DjouImage via Wikipedia

In a year when voter discontent nationwide appears ready to toss out incumbents — mostly Democrats — U.S. Rep. Charles Djou is in position to retain his seat representing one of the nation’s bluest states.
According to a new Star-Advertiser/Hawaii News Now poll, Djou holds a slight 3-point edge over Democrat Colleen Hanabusa, but it is within the margin of error — a statistical tie.
In a telephone poll of 399 very likely voters in the 1st Congressional District, representing urban Honolulu, Djou was favored by 48 percent, compared with 45 percent for Hanabusa.
