That’s how the leader of the Barbados Labour Party’ campaign team feels about the party’s chances in Thursday’s general election.
Campaign Manager, Jimmy Serrao, speaking in the wake of a second CADRES poll in two weeks showing the BLP was favoured to win the poll, today urged all involved in the organisation’s campaign not to be complacent.
In an electronic memo he said: “The BLP remains cautiously optimistic about Thursday’s result, however, we caution all of our supporters not to rest on our laurels.
“The only poll that matters is on Election Day. If we do not go out to vote in our numbers, we will not win. Sunday’s poll was a wake-up call that we must take no seat or no vote for granted.
“Over the next 72 hours much work will need to be done to ensure that every BLP supporter makes it to the polls and votes. We need your vote. We need your support. And, most importantly, we need you to take action.
“There is so much that needs to be done over the next 72 hours. If you want to ensure a victory for the ‘Team for a Better Tomorrow’, I need you to sign up to volunteer now and help us with the final push for victory! Now is the time. Volunteer,” he said.
He spoke in the context of what he said was the latest CADRES survey showing “Barbados Labour Party up eight per cent with an anticipated swing of seven per cent to the BLP”.
“It further shows Owen Arthur edging Freundel Stuart 37 per cent to 32 per cent – just outside the margin of error for the poll. It predicts a 20-10 BLP win,” he noted. (SC)
