Brown Narrowly Favoured Over Dunkley, Says Survey

6 December 2007 | The Royal Gazette

Some observers say the election is becoming a referendum on Premier Dr. Ewart Brown's leadership and the latest poll shows he has a narrow lead over Opposition Leader Michael Dunkley on the popularity stakes.

Asked for their overall opinion of Dr. Brown, 53.4 percent of voters are favourable compared to 41.9 percent who disapprove and just 4.7 percent not sure.

Mr. Michael Dunkley gets a favourability rating of 49.5 percent while 28.3 percent disaprove and 22.2 have yet to decide.

The Profiles of Bermuda poll commissioned by The Royal Gazette surveyed 406 people between November 23 and December 1 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

There is a marked racial tinge to how people view the Premier with 78.7 percent of blacks in favour, 16.5 percent against and 4.9 percent not sure.

Only 10.3 percent of whites are favourable, 85 percent are unfavourable and 4.7 percent are not sure. MORE! »
