A poll for the Honolulu Advertiser, released yesterday, shows that Republican Charles Djou "leads with 36 percent, former congressman Ed Case is chasing at 28 percent, and state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa is trailing with 22 percent. Thirteen percent were undecided."

Djou can obviously be pleased he's in the lead, but the poll might encourage some of Hanabusa's supporters to jump ship and back Case, who apparently has a better shot of winning.

Ballots for the mail-in election were sent out on Friday and must be returned by May 22.
