SWS head to survey critics: Do your own polls
Posted by akosistella on March 17, 2010
The president of one of the country’s largest survey organizations on Tuesday defended the conduct of surveys from “doubters” whom he dared to conduct their own to see for themselves how the process works.
“Everybody should do it, the more the better. That to me is the best remark to the doubters. Do it yourself and when you see that it works, you’ll be convinced,” Mahar Mangahas of the Social Weather Station (SWS) said in an interview after presenting a review of SWS surveys before students of the Ateneo de Manila University-School of Government.
Mangahas said contrary to what the critics claim, surveys do not condition the mind of the public to vote for a particular candidate or candidates.
