Poll: Dunkley and Bean neck and neck
Michael Dunkley had a favourability rating of 50.9 per cent, just edging out Marc Bean’s rating of 48.9 per cent, in a new poll by Profiles of Bermuda.
Both the Premier and the Opposition leader achieved a job approval rating of 46.9 per cent in the survey, carried out between April 15 and May 10 this year.
Mr Bean’s favourability rating was down from the 56.3 per cent recorded in 2014. A year ago, then-Premier Craig Cannonier had a rating of 40.3 per cent.
Among white and other voters, 75 per cent said they favoured the Premier, as well as 60.1 per cent of those aged 55 and over. Mr Bean had support of 64.1 per cent of black voters, and 56.8 per cent of those in households that earned less than $50,000 per year.
The survey was conducted among 407 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.8 per cent.
