OPEN Interactive, Inc. (OI) has verified the authenticity of the poll published by the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party just days ago.
In a press release issued on October 16, 2018, by its Public Relations unit, the business stated that “OPEN Interactive has learned that one of our internal surveys, focusing on some Facebook and SKNVibes users, has been accessed and published by the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party ….”
OI’s political poll was run via Facebook. This is according to many persons who encountered the questions in their Facebook feeds for some time. In total, it received responses from 1,111 persons as is stated in the document that was somehow leaked from within the company. Participants were given the opportunity to express their sociopolitical views and maintain their anonymity simultaneously, a fact that was clearly seen to have negatively impacted the government’s most recent poll.
Although OI’s press release claims that the poll was for “internal” use, much of the general public is of the view that this is not so. Persons suspect that the business, which is believed to be pro-government, is objecting to the results being made public because they clearly show that the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party has regained a significant amount of the support it had previously lost. This is in stark contrast to the contentious CADRES poll whose flawed and contradictory results were released earlier this week.
The results of OI’s 13-question poll very clearly show that the Labour Party’s support in 2018 is such that in a general election, the Party would win the majority of the seats on St. Kitts especially. These results are in keeping with the noticeable shift in the political climate of St. Kitts and Nevis stemming from the public’s increased displeasure at being forced to endure the punitive and sinister machinations of the coalition regime headed by Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris.
