A new opinion poll suggests that Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar is the most popular leader in the country when it comes to uniting Trinidad and Tobago.
The poll by NACTA – the North American Teachers Association asked: Which leader do you think can unite the whole of T&T?
Forty five per cent of respondents chose Persad-Bissessar. Opposition Leader Keith Rowley was second with 28 per cent and only 16 per cent chose Pennelope Beckles-Robinson .
The finding is part of a comprehensive poll on national leaders. NACTA said it interviewed more than 1,000 people representing the demographics of Trinidad and Tobago.
The poll also asked if each of the three leaders could get much needed cross-cultural support to win a general election. NACTA said respondents gave the PM and Beckles-Robinson more than 50 per cent and Rowley got only 39 per cent.
