Ferry rides tide of favor

» Return to main story

The Star-Bulletin Hawaii Superferry poll was conducted Sept. 27 through Oct. 2 by SMS Research. A total of 600 telephone surveys were conducted statewide, 150 each on Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. The margin of error is 4 percentage points for the statewide poll and about 8 percentage points for the individual islands.



Do you think an environmental assessment should be done on the Superferry?
