StratPOLLS: Noynoy has ‘solid’ 37%
Posted by akosistella on April 19, 2010
WITH four major polling firms indicating a constituency of 15 million voters across all geographic and demographic sectors, Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III has an average “solid” 37 percent of voting share for the past four months, and enjoys an advantage that may put him on track to claiming a “historic appointment with destiny” in the May 10 presidential race.
This was the analysis of Prof. Alfredo Sureta Jr., StratPOLLS executive director, who made an up-to-date comparative research study on survey results conducted by four pollsters—Social Weather Stations Inc. (SWS) Pulse Asia, StratPOLLS and Manila Standard Today (MST) between February and April.
Here, Sureta said, Aquino posted a weighted average of a 9-percent lead over closest rival Sen. Manuel Villar.
However, the StratPOLLS chief analyst said the still-undeclared support of major voting blocs, especially the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), could still be a swing factor in the polls. The INC, in past practice, had tended to announce its choice for its 3-million flock’s command vote toward the end of the campaign period.
