Meanwhile:
https://www.civilbeat.org/2019/08/ci...-love-for-ige/

"By a more than 2-to-1 margin — 64% to 31% — of registered voters in Hawaii who were polled say they favor building the state-of-the-art telescope, most of them strongly in support. Only 3% say they are unsure while another 3% say the issue does not matter to them.

"They also do not like how Gov. David Ige has handled the TMT issue. [...] Only 21% of those surveyed have a positive opinion of the governor’s leadership on the issue compared to 53% who hold negative views."

The problem with the Civil Beat poll is "registered voters". I suspect most of those who are opposed to TMT are not registered voters.

I was one contacted by the poll last week and of course I am in support of TMT. I'm one of the 64%.

I give BJ Penn chance against TMT. What are the odds in Vegas?
