Poll: Burt’s approval on the rise

Nearly seven out of ten people approve of David Burt's performance as Premier, according to a new survey.

The Bermuda Omnibus Survey, conducted by Total Research Associates, also shows both blacks and whites are both increasingly satisfied with Mr Burt.

It found 69 per cent of residents are satisfied with the Premier, up from 55 per cent last December.

Among blacks, 84 per cent are satisfied, up from 71 per cent six months ago. Among whites, 54 per cent are satisfied, up from 32 per cent last December.

The survey also found the economy is considered the island's most important issue, followed by employment.

It was based on a telephone sample of 400 adults, conducted from April 4 to April 12. It is accurate to +/- 4.9 percentage points, in 19 out of 20 samples.
