A day after a local poll showed the opposition United Progressive Party emerging winner at the next general election, another poll has come out saying the opposite.
The latest public opinion poll was conducted by the Caribbean  Development Research Services Inc (CADRES) between February 2 and 5.
In that poll, 36 percent of the estimated 800 people polled face to face, said they would support the ruling Antigua Barbuda Labour Party, while 25 percent chose the opposition UPP and five percent chose the newest party, the Democratic National Alliance. 
This is according to a press statement from CADRES.
Of note, was that 35 percent of the people polled said they were uncertain of their choice if an election were to be called now.
On Thursday, the Free and Fair Election League released results of a poll conducted from February 8 to 10 which stated that the UPP would win 15 of the 17 seats up for grabs and the ABLP would secure one, while the Barbuda People’s Movement was also predicted to win one seat.
The League conducted a secret ballot exercise and this was done at various supermarkets, mainly in the central parts of Antigua,  while CADRES did a face to face exercise in all 16 mainland constituencies.
OBSERVER media will be provided a deeper analysis of the CADRES report in subsequent news reports.
