A recent poll is showing that the opposition St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) would win a majority of the seats in the National Assembly and that Leader of the Opposition, the Rt Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas would do a better job running the government.
The poll was conducted by renowned regional pollster Bill Johnson of Johnson Survey Research Limited Inc.
According to Johnson, the recent polls shows that the SKNLP would win six out of the eight seats on St. Kitts if the election were called around June-July 2019.
48% of the people feel that Dr Douglas would do a better job running the country whilst only 29% think Dr. Timothy Harris is up to the job.
In addition, 48% said they wished Douglas was still Prime Minister compared to 35% who said they were content that Harris is PM.
The poll also shows that across six constituencies in St Kitts, an average of 38% think that the government is doing a good job.
The Johnson Survey Research Inc designed the poll to assess how likeable candidates are and how favorable the two political leaders across the various constituencies are rated.
Summary results did not include St Christopher 6, currently held by Dr Douglas and St Christopher 7 now held by Dr Harris.
The poll revealed that an average of 18% of respondents were undecided in relation to who would do a better as leader of the country.
“ For the past 5 election cycles in St. Kitts and Nevis including the previous one, our polling results accurately reflected the decision of voters. I stand confidently behind the results of this poll,” pollster Johnson remarked.
