FIFTEEN days away from the 2018 General Election, at least one in five people are still undecided on who to vote for, the Tebbutt-Times poll has revealed.

The poll carried out from October 22 to 24 revealed there were 22 per cent undecided voters and another 10 per cent declined to answer the question on who they would vote for.

The latest Tebbutt-Times poll asked people above 18 years on who they would vote for if there was an election tomorrow.

According to the poll, the total undecided voters — which comprised those who were not sure and declined to answer — was significantly higher for Fijians of Indian descent, making up 37 per cent compared with the iTaukei who accounted for 26 per cent. Of these undecided voters, about 39 per cent were over 45 years and 34 per cent were aged between 30-44 years.

Lesser undecided voters were recorded for those between the ages of 18-29 years who comprised 23 per cent.

The poll revealed that the undecided voters were evenly spread out in all the divisions – Western Division – 34 per cent, Central Division – 30 per cent and the Northern and Eastern divisions accounting for 28 per cent.
