Are BFP’s Readers Seeing & Hearing What We Are?
Tuesday’s general election could end in a stalemate, but is more likely to result in victory for the Opposition Democratic Labour Party (DLP).
The DLP enjoys a five-point lead over the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) as the party voters prefer – 35.3 per cent to 30.1 per cent, which is statistically insignificant in this poll which boasts of a plus/minus 5 per cent margin of error.
The likelihood of a DLP victory, however, is based on a swing projection generated by CADRES…

We aren’t about to proclaim a victory in hand for David Thompson and the DLP, but we do see, hear and feel a sense of “It Is Possible” on the streets.
People are cautiously optimistic – still guarding their comments because, well… wouldn’t want to SAY they are supporting the Dems this time around… but when they walk into the polling station they will be voting DEM.
One of the biggest silent indicators is The Nation News.
Have you noticed, folks? The Nation, while still openly supporting the government has backed off a little bit on the anti-Thompson rhetoric. They even put Thompson on the front and Arthur on the back once.
Yup… the editors of the Nation sense it too…
David Thompson is looking more and more like Prime Minister Thompson in a few days.
You think the election is exciting? Just wait until the week after a DLP government takes the reins.
