A New Poll Shows A Close Race Between The Incumbent PNM And The Main Opposition UNC Parties
Too close to Call are what some Pollsters are saying, as Trinidad & Tobago Voters Head To The Polls.
Voters in Trinidad and Tobago will go to the polls on Monday, August 10th to elect a new government for the next five years. A new poll shows a close race between the incumbent PNM and the main opposition UNC parties, in a race that has attracted a total of 19 parties and 8 independents.
A Guardian Media-commissioned poll conducted by HHB and Associates Ltd, shows the incumbent People’s National Movement, (PNM) with a slight lead over the main opposition United National Congress, (UNC).
The first part of the poll showed that 35 per cent of respondents support the Afro based PNM party and 29 per cent support the Indo based UNC party, while only two percent said they would vote for other parties.
However, 16 percent of the respondents said they are still undecided, and 11 percent indicated they would not vote. The margin of error is a plus or minus four. Voters in the sister Isle of Tobago were not polled.
