The PL leads the PN by seven points, which translates into an advantage of 15,422 votes on the back of a record low turnout of 62.5%. The decrease in turnout is more pro- nounced among those who vote PL in the 2022 general election, among which 34% are intent on abstaining. However, the Trust Barometer shows Robert Abela gaining four points since De- cember, putting him a whopping 24 points ahead of his direct rival, Bernard Grech. Abela has a trust rating of 41.1% against Grech's dismal 16.7%. But in an indication of widespread disenchantment with the political establishment, a relative majori- ty (42%) trusts neither of the two political leaders.
