Through the latest survey published by MaltaToday, it transpires that although the Government is currently going through one of the worst political crises in history and is the target of relentless criticism, it seems that this has not translated into support for the Nationalist Party.
In fact, according to yesterday’s poll it is clear that if an election is held today, only 27.6% of respondents would be voting PN, an increase of less than a percentage point from the previous survey. Support for the PL has also decreased by a percentage point from November, down to 43.1%.
This effectively means there is a 15.5% gap between the PL and the PN. Only 65.2% of those who voted PN in 2017 would vote for the party today, while 84.4% of those who voted Labour in 2017 would vote for the party again today. This survey was conducted between 2 and 6 December after Prime Minister Muscat announced his resignation.
