In a tightly contested political race, Queen Elizabeth II – running as an Independent Candidate – has pulled ahead in the prediction polls.
A pool of 1,020 members of the public were questioned about the general election within the last week, with questions ranging from ‘Who do you intend to vote for on Election Day?’ to ‘What is your personal preference as far as shampoo is concerned?’.
37% of people claimed they would vote for the Queen, the majority of which cited her plan for solid gold toilets in all households as the number one incentive. Meanwhile 32% opted for the previous favourite, Dr. Keet Mitchell with 30% deciding to stick with the incumbent Prime Minister. The final 1% was a combination of people who said they would not vote, and one man who said he would vote for PULP.
The Queen, who relinquished hold of Grenada in 1974, was a shock late-comer to the 2013 elections. Her popularity has soared in recent weeks as she unveiled her plans to create jobs for the Grenadian people in Buckingham Palace as well as stimulate the economy and get people to spend money by updating her portrait on all currency used.
Grenada goes to the polls on February 19th.
