Alex Marland, a political science professor at Memorial University, says the issue is a political landmine for Furey.

"It's never good when you are a political party or a governing party and you are hiding things," Marland says.

"So as long as you're hiding things, the opposition can say there's a wicked, evil, hidden agenda here and that plays to people's fears. So that's where it's a serious problem for the liberals. They need to get a handle on that issue."

Furey suggests the province needs tough medicine. But he insists fears of the economic review are overblown.

"First of all, there is no report. There hasn't been a pen to paper."

Public opinion polls suggest Furey is poised to go from minority to majority, riding the wave of that province's success against COVID-19. So far, premiers who've gone to the polls during the pandemic have all been successful.

In provincial elections late last year, three incumbent governments boosted their standings. New Brunswick's PC government and British Columbia's NDP government elevated their parties from minority to majority governments. And, the Saskatchewan Party, under Scott Moe, defended its majority, adding two more seats than it had going into the election campaign.

Lori Turnbull, director of public administration at Dalhousie University, says it's natural that Canadian voters are supporting incumbent leaders.

"We put faith in our leaders because we have to because we're in an emergency situation and we need some sort of guidance."

Newfoundlanders must now decide if they, too, will place their faith in the incumbent party.
