Marlene Malahoo Forte, first-term incumbent MP should easily win the St. James West Central Constituency for the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), the latest Don Anderson Poll has found.
The well-respected pollster says his survey found a clear lead for Malahoo-Forte, Attorney General over economist and UWI lecturer, Dr. Andre Haughton.
According to the Poll, among respondents in the Constituency, 33% said they would vote for Malahoo- Forte, and 20% for Haughton. Forty-Seven percent did not answer or said they would not vote.
The Poll, published in the Sunday Gleaner, August 30, found that Malahoo-Forte would win all three divisions, including the traditional PNP stronghold Mt. Salem, as well as Granville and Spring Garden.
People who said they would vote for Malahoo-Forte said they would do so because she was a hard worker, provided infrastructure and they were Labourites, the Poll found.
