PNP Poll Shows Majority Believe JA is Heading in the Wrong Direction under Holness-Gov’t


More results from a Bill Johnson poll conducted for Dr. Peter Phillips’ One PNP Campaign suggest that a majority of Jamaicans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction under the Andrew Holness government.

The results were released at a press conference by One PNP this morning.

The poll shows that 46% of respondents believe the country is heading in the wrong direction while 30% believe Jamaica is heading in the right direction, and 24% are uncertain.

The poll also reveals that crime and violence is the most pressing problem, with 62% choosing that as the top issue.

Fifty-two percent said unemployment is the biggest issue, while water availability rounded out the top three, with 25%.

Meanwhile, the poll also revealed that 41%t of respondents believe Dr. Phillips has more experience to lead the PNP than Presidential hopeful, Peter Bunting.

Last week, early poll results that were disclosed suggested that respondents would vote for Dr. Phillips as PNP leader instead of Mr. Bunting in a general election.

The poll findings also indicated that Dr. Phillips is in a statistical dead heat with Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
