NASSAU, BAHAMAS — A new poll shows the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) edging out the governing Free National Movement (FNM), both of which remain the majority favorites among the electorate.
While 35 percent of respondents surveyed said they would vote for the PLP if the election was called at the time they took the survey, another 30 percent said they would vote FNM.
The online poll by Bahamian information and research company Intel Cay was conducted between November 2020 and May 2021 and included a sample size of 5,965.
Queswell Ferguson, who heads the firm, said it could recognize the IP addresses of all respondents, ensuring they were Bahamian residents.
According to the poll, 12 percent of respondents were undecided about who they would elect, and 11 percent would opt not to vote.
Just eight percent of respondents said they would vote for the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) if the election was called; three percent opted for the Coalition of Independents (COI); and just one percent of respondents said they would elect “other”.
