The Grassroot Institute has released a survey of every household in Hawaii. The survey, conducted from July 8 to 10, 2005, and released yesterday, shows an estimated two out of every three responednts oppose the Akaka Bill aka the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2005. According to the Hawaii Reporter:
The poll, which attempted to survey all 290,000 households in Hawaii, received 20,504 responses to the question “Do you support the Akaka Bill?” In support were 5,197 people or 32.70 percent, opposed were 10,694 or 67.30 percent. The remaining people polled chose not to answer that question. To the question of whether they support racial preferences, 23,129 people responded, with 3,022 people or 18.37 percent saying yes they do support racial preferences and 13,427 people or 81.63 percent saying they do not support racial preferences.
Andrew Walden, Editor of the Hawai`i Free Press, informs me that 48% of Native Hawaiians who responded to the survey are against the bill.
