Greenberg says that a desire for change is driving the vote of Dominicans for the 5 July presidential and congressional election. The US polling company says voters have not varied their decision to vote for a change, regardless of the long-running state of emergency. The numbers for the Greenberg poll in February were 52% Abinader, Castillo 24% and Fernández 17%.
The June 2020 poll reveals that the vote for the next Dominican President is likely to be: Luis Abinader of the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM), 56%, Gonzalo Castillo of the Dominican Liberation Party (PLD) 35.5%, Leonel Fernández of People’s Force (FP) 12% and Guillermo Moreno of Country Alliance (AlPais), 1%. There are only 2% undecided, according to the poll. The results mean Luis Abinader of the PRM would be the winner on 5 July 2020, and a runoff election would not be necessary.
