Wickham still stands by polls
Although saying that the outcome of yesterday’s general election left him “at a loss”, political scientist Peter Wickham stands by the results of the two polls he conducted days ahead of the election which the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) won.
However, he acknowledged there might be need for a change in his analysis.
Wickham’s Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES) released a poll earlier this week showing the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) could win up to 20 seats.
This happened days after a first poll showed the results would have been too close to call.
Wickham said the results reflected a “change of mood” of the electorate and he could not hide from that. (DP)
