St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): It isn't clear at the moment who is currently the country’s favorite politician, but back in February it wasn't Prime Minister Denzil Douglas, according to a public opinion poll conducted by the company Market Research Services. Pollster Don Anderson says the majority of those polled preferred Dr. Timothy Harris.


The poll was conducted two months after a Motion of No Confidence in the Government of Prime Minister Douglas was filed by the Parliamentary Opposition. 

“The person with the highest favorable rating  was Dr. Timothy Harris who had 60.4 per cent, and he was followed by Sam Condor 58.4 per cent, Shawn Richards 45.9 per cent, Vance Amory 37.5 per cent and the incumbent prime minister Denzil 30.1 per cent,” Anderson told WINN FM.

He indicated too that polls done by his company in mid-2012 and last February suggested that the governing Labour Party had lost five per cent of its popular support. The pollster says his February/March (2013) survey saw 56.1 per cent of those suggesting that Dr. Harris could do a better job leading the country.

Anderson also revealed that 66.2 per cent said they would vote for a candidate who favored a government of national unity.  He declined to say on whose behalf his company conducted the public opinion poll.
