OBA ‘encouraged’ by 12-point lead in polls

News that the One Bermuda Alliance has opened up a 12-point lead in the polls is “encouraging”, party chairwoman and Senator Lynne Woolridge told The Royal Gazette.

Sen Woolridge stressed that the OBA's job is still unfinished as it attempts to lead Bermuda out of recession.

In the Global Research poll, 42 per cent of registered voters said they would vote for the OBA if a General Election was called, compared to 30 per cent for the Progressive Labour Party. Meanwhile, Michael Dunkley, the Premier, notched a 48 per cent approval rating versus 20 per cent for Opposition leader Marc Bean. “While the poll result is encouraging, the OBA remains focused on bringing forward recovery that gets Bermudians back to work,” said Sen Woolridge.

“We've made progress in pulling the Island out of recession, stabilising government finances and reducing crime, but the job is not yet finished.

“Our mission is to make Bermuda fair, inclusive and safe, with a strong economy and a transparent government helping people move forward.” A spokesperson for the PLP did not return a request for comment yesterday.
