DEM POLLS: Angel Dawson, Alicia Barnes and Donna Frett-Gregory Are Big Winners Saturday

CHRISTIANSTED — The Rattan Polling Service, which says it is an independent polling source and has been conducting polling in the Virgin Islands since 1998, said it sampled 300 people in the territory between July 15 and August 1.

“The race for the Democratic Gubernatorial nomination appears to be a statistical dead heat among the three candidates,” the service said. “Although numerically the Dawson-James team placed number one territorially, Bryan-Roach was closely behind within one percentage point followed by the Allison Petrus team. If there is an edge, it is most likely to be the Petrus-Sanes team because of the early voting in both districts.

“According to the Board of Election, early voting on St. Thomas was 2,038 and on St. Croix 1,404 and St. John 79 for a total of 3,521 ballots cast. If that trend continues in the August 4th election, the edge could likely be the Petrus Sanes team because he placed number one in the St. Thomas District, although the other two candidates were within 2% percentage points of Petrus’ numbers.

“In the senatorial race on St. Croix, newcomers Barnes and DeGazon are most likely to win one of the 7 seats available. While positions four through ten will compete for the remaining three seats available. This is because the percentage difference between numbers five and ten is small and on election day these positions may change.”

The Rattan Polling Service said that its margin of error is three percent. The Democratic Primary is Saturday.
