THE popularity of Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama remains strong among the voting public, according to the Tebbutt-Times poll.

He leads SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa on the preferred prime minister measure.

When asked who they would prefer to see succeed as prime minister if there was an election held tomorrow, survey respondents answered openly and could suggest any person they wished.

Mr Bainimarama clearly leads this measure, being chosen by three out of five people or by 60 per cent, and holding a majority across both genders and all age groups.

However, this is a decrease of 6 per cent from the initial Tebbutt-Times polls conducted in May.

Ro Teimumu Kepa scored 17 per cent — double what was recorded previously.

Completing the remainder of preferences are National Federation Party leader Biman Prasad at 3 per cent overall, followed by Fiji Labour Party president Lavinia Padarath and Peoples' Democratic Party leader Felix Anthony who had 1 per cent each, and FLP's Monica Raghwan and Ratu Epeli Ganilau on less than 1 per cent each.

Ten per cent were unsure and 7 per cent unwilling to provide an answer.

Missing from the choices for prime minister is FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry and SODELPA stalwart Laisenia Qarase.
