Caribbean 360 is reporting that Thursday’s general election in Barbados will go down to the wire.  A recent poll shows that both political parties are in a statistical dead heat. The writer reports:

The poll by the Caribbean Development Research Services  (CADRES), published in the Sunday Sun newspaper however indicates that Arthur’s Barbados Labour Party (BLP) still hold a “slight edge” for control of the 30 seats in the parliament.

It said that the BLP had a 37 per cent favourable rating as against 34 per cent for the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) with 29 per cent of the voters either not giving an indication of how they will vote on Thursday or did not know which party would most likely win nationally.

The poll has a margin of error of +/-5 per cent, meaning that there is a high probability that the election will be decided by undecided voters.
