Hours before the polls open for
the St Joseph by-election, the North
American Caribbean Teachers
Association (Nacta) poll once again
puts the People s National Move-
ment candidate, Terrence Deyals-
ingh, in a "solid lead" ahead of the
The Nacta poll has been collated
on a weekly basis to track changes
in the temperature of the electorate.
The poll again saw Deyalsingh trump
the United Nation Congress candi-
date Ian Alleyne and Independent
Liberal Party hopeful Om Lalla.
In terms of actual support, the
poll s findings showed the PNM get-
ting 36 per cent of popular support,
with the UNC coming in second
place with 31 per cent, and ILP
polling third at 23 per cent.
Nacta also found that the split
vote continued to work against both
the UNC and the ILP.
According to the poll, the "three
way division in the votes favours the
PNM s candidate to win" as tradi-
tional PNM supporters are solidly
backing Deyalsingh, with limited
cross over from traditional UNC sup-
The findings suggest that "if the
votes were not split, Deyalsingh
would have virtually no chance of
wresting the seat that was held by
the UNC, with Lalla winning by a
huge margin. The other candidates
are drawing insignificant support."
Though Deyalsingh remains in the
lead for tomorrow s election, the poll
showed "he is far from obtaining a
majority of votes but is favoured to
get the most support."
The poll found that most of the
UNC supporters are backing Alleyne
only because of their support for
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-
While PNM leader Dr Keith Row-
ley has dismissed the split vote sce-
nario as a main contributor to a pos-
sible PNM victory, polled residents
were asked which party is likely to
win the St Joseph seat, and "almost
two thirds of respondents feel PNM
will prevail because of the split vote
scenario, with a quarter of the voters
saying the contest will be close
among the top three contenders."
In another twist, People s Part-
nership supporters have also
expressed a preference for a coalition
between the UNC and the ILP.
