The Labour Party holds a 15% lead over the Nationalist Party, a survey published by it-Torca shows.

The survey, conducted by statistician Vincent Marmara, shows that the PL currently holds 55.9% support of the electorate – 0.9% more than the support it had in the 2017 general election.

The PN meanwhile holds 40.8% of the electorate’s support – 2.9% less than what it garnered during the 2017 general election.

The new AD/PD coalition registered the remaining 3.3% of the support, a result which would be over double what AD achieved in 2017.

Marmara explained that the conclusions were reached after applying the Multiple Imputation Technique on those who refused to answer or said that they were indecisive.

Marmara said that it is clear from the results that the PN has failed to infiltrate the PL’s voter base.

The survey was carried out between 3 and 7 August with a sample of 600 people.  Stratified sampling, with representation based on district, age, and gender, was used while the confidence level in the survey stands at 95% with a plus or minus 4% margin of error.
