PLP encouraged’ by taking lead in poll
The Progressive Labour Party has said a poll showing it to be more popular than the ruling One Bermuda Alliance was an “encouraging endorsement”.
However, a spokeswoman for the party played down the importance of the results.
“The PLP does not place much emphasis on poll results,” the spokeswoman said. “They are a snapshot in time and, in politics, much can change in an instant. Our focus remains on ensuring the people’s voices are heard and that we hold the Government accountable. Opinion polls do not affect what we are truly working for, which is equality, social justice and fair opportunity for all.”
The poll, conducted by Global Research found that the PLP has a 38-35 advantage, compared with the 38-37 lead held by the OBA in our last poll in September. And while Michael Dunkley, the Premier, retained his top position in the poll’s performance approval ratings, a new trust rating shows that none of the four leading politicians is trusted by more than three out of ten people, with the parties faring even worse.
The survey was conducted between November 18 and 25, concluding a week before Friday’s protest over the controversial airport redevelopment project.
Representatives for the OBA were contacted yesterday about the poll results, but declined the opportunity to comment.
