If an election were held tomorrow, the One Bermuda Alliance would garner 39% of the vote, with the ruling Progressive Labour Party taking 30% of the vote, according to a recent survey by Profiles of Bermuda.
The survey was conducted among 301 registered voters between the latter part of 2011 and February 10th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.6%.
“Some 23% were either undecided. Just 1% would vote for either the United Bermuda Party or independents, while 5% would not vote. If the margin of error of 5.6% were factored in, the race would be considered a statistical dead heat. Compared to the last election, 42% stated that they voted for the PLP and 44% for the UBP,” said a statement released by Profiles of Bermuda.
“By sex there were some differences in voting habits: 29% of males and 31% of females indicated that they would vote for the PLP. For the OBA, the figures were 49% and 33% respectively.
“By race, 96% of all those who would vote for the PLP were Black, compared to 4% of Whites and Others. On the other hand, of all those who stated that they would vote for the OBA, 33% were Black and 67% were of White and Other races. And of all those who stated that they were undecided, 65% were Black and 35% were White and Other races.”
