Former minister has the edge over St Kitts-Nevis PM, says pollster

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- Opposition coalition Team Unity leader Dr Timothy Harris has kept his position as the leading politician in St Kitts and Nevis, according to pollster Don Anderson.

His last public opinion poll on the matter was done in June/July, but Anderson says the trend suggests that Harris has the edge over Prime Minister Denzil Douglas as far as public opinion is concerned.

The pollster has been explaining the basis for the more favourable rating being given to Harris.

“Dr Timothy was about three percentage points more favourably rated than the prime minister,” Anderson said.

He said that in terms of the unfavourability rating, the gap was about 12 percent.

“In other words Dr Douglas might have been about 36 percentage points in terms of unfavourability and Dr Harris 24 percentage points. In other words Dr Douglas would have been more unfavourably rated than Dr Harris,” Anderson said.

Winn FM put it to him that the governing Labour Party continues to pull huge crowds at its political meetings, and remains a force to be reckoned with.

“I don’t doubt that they will, but you know there is strong and stronger, and of course what will determine the outcome of the election in the final analysis is which party is able to pull out the greater number of voters,” he concluded.

Anderson says his poll indicates that the majority of the people in the country feel that it is not going in the right direction under the leadership of Douglas and his governing Labour Party.
