Survey: Satisfaction With Govt Performance

July 20, 2020

According to a recent survey by Total Research Associates Limited [TRA], some 96% of people are satisfied with the Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Satisfaction with Govt's Response to Covid19 Pandemic

A spokesperson said, “For more than two decades of public opinion polling, satisfaction with the overall performance of the Government has never been higher. Currently, nearly nine in ten residents [87%] express being satisfied to some extent, a result that is deeply tied with the Government’s handling of the current pandemic. For context, the past highest level of satisfaction was in December 2013 at 71 percent.

“It is perhaps not surprising that support for the Government increased during such a time of crisis given their more prominent profile, regular public briefings, and heightened transparency.

“It is clear that in the eyes of residents, the Government properly handled the Island’s response to the pandemic, with virtually all are satisfied with the measures taken [96%]. Compared with two months ago, satisfaction in this regard remains unchanged.

“Over the past two decades, there has also been a consistent disparity in satisfaction between white and black residents depending on the current party holding office.

“In more than 20 years of tracking, this gap has never been narrower, with white and black residents alike being highly satisfied with the Government’s overall performance.

    Well this is not really a shocker is it? The poll subject is strictly regarding the handling of the Pandemic, which Bermuda as a whole have done well.

    “some 96% of people are satisfied with the Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic”

    That is a very narrow question. Who commissioned the poll?

  3. Toodle-oo says:

    I have no doubt that the questions were parsed in such a way that it would have been impossible for ‘this government’ to do anything other than come out smelling like a rose.
    They may as well have had one question only ‘Are you happy that we are down to 0 active cases of covid 19 ?’ as they would have gotten the same lovely results because that’s all this comes down to .
    When the 3.5 billion debt thing catches up and it becomes obvious that they really do have no plan whatsoever other than divisive racial politics I wonder if they’ll have the confidence to do another poll ?

    Well they definitely didn’t speak to me or the hundreds of people I know who think the PLP has no plan whatsoever of how to restart the economy other than raising the debt ceiling for handouts to electoral targets

  5. Joke says:

    What a joke! 400 people does not a country represent! This is selective BS poll in order to spin results! Give up PLP we are not that dumb!

      I think onion juice has a answer for you that would disagree. 25-11. Lol. We are that dimb. Hahaha

  6. Noncents says:

    Cudos to the government. And to the people that don’t understand statistics- just because you weren’t polled doesn’t invalidate the math.

    • Wrong says:

      400 people out of 60,000? Sorry but this is a joke!
