Polls ain’t over yet for tailenders–analysts

Posted by akosistella on April 12, 2010


BAGUIO CITY—FILIPINO VOTERS’ UNFAMILIARITY WITH automated elections may benefit the survey low-performers and tailenders in the presidential race, political scientists said on Friday.

The odds are high that voters favoring the survey front-runners Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and Manuel Villar Jr. could end up with spoiled ballots on May 10, thus giving a boost to the unseeded candidates, said Ma. Lourdes Tiquia, founder and general manager of the political consultancy group Publicus Asia Inc.

Even administration candidate Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro, a constant fourth in the surveys, has a fighting chance because of anticipated voters’ errors, Tiquia said.

Noynoy still leads in survey commissioned by Villar ally

(Updated 7:21 p.m.) Presidential candidate Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III (Liberal Party) remains on top in a recent survey commissioned by an ally of rival Sen. Manny Villar Jr. (Nacionalista Party).

According to the results of the survey conducted from March 28 to 30 and purportedly commissioned by House Minority Floor Leader Ronaldo Zamora, Villar scored 29 percentage points, or eight points behind Aquino’s 37.

The NP claimed the survey was from Social Weather Station (SWS), although the poll firm has yet to confirm it. Calls made by GMANews.TV to its office were not answered.
