The latest Civil Beat/Hawaii News Now poll finds:
- 71% of Hawaii voters say they strongly support Hawaii stay-at-home orders.
- 71& say they strongly support the 14-day quarantine for arrivals.
- 77% say the orders have been necessary,
- 80% (nearly four out of five voters) believe the orders have been effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
- People earning more than $100,000, however, are less supportive of the policies than those making less than that figure.
- Asked whether it is more important to stop the spread of the virus even if the economy worsens, by a 2-to-1 margin — or 61% to 30% — voters favor dealing with the virus first.
The poll was conducted May 18-20 and surveyed 1,533 registered voters statewide. The overall margin of error is 2.5 percentage points.
