SWS and Pulse Asia polling firms owned by relatives and friends of Noynoy Aquino

This is it guys. If the following information does not convince you not to vote for Noynoy Aquino, I don’t know what will. Heck, Noynoy’s alleged mental disorder is ok with you, so it is so hard to tell what else can convince you that he is not the right man for the top job.

You know how most of you will be voting for Noynoy Aquino just because the media is saying that he is leading the polls? Well, guess what: According to this paper I stumbled upon, the two polling firms who have been conducting the presidential polls have interlocking directorships with most of them actually members of the Philippine Oligarchy. If you don’t know what that means, I’ll spell it out: it means, the firms are actually owned by family and friends of, TADAA!!!: Noynoy Aquino. Holy nepotism, Batman!

A certain Professor Alfredo Sureta wrote a paper about the public opinion organisations in the Philippines in December 2009. In that paper, he stated that “some of the prominent members of the board and stockholders of Pulse Asia are blood relatives of Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, official candidate of the Liberal Party” who is now ironically leading the polls.

Here’s an excerpt from that paper:

Interlocking directorship within two polling firms

The SWS was founded in 1986 by Dr. Mahar Mangahas, Prof. Felipe Miranda, then DPWH Sec. Jose P. de Jesus (under President Cory Aquino), Mercy Abad among others while Pulse Asia was founded in the 90s when Prof. Felipe Miranda separated from Mangahas and bolted SWS. It should be noted that Managhas is the cousin of the late presidential candidate Fernando Poe, Jr while some of the prominent members of the board and stockholders of the Pulse Asia are blood relatives of Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, official candidate for the president of the Liberal Party. The corporate records of both firms that are available at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will also show interlocking directorship with several personalities appearing as stockholders of both SWS and Pulse Asia.

Felipe Mirand, Rosalinda T. Miranda, Gemino H. Abad, Mercedes R. Abad, Jose P. de Jesus appear in SEC records as being founders and or stockholders of both SWS and Pulse Asia.

Mercedes R. Abad who is president of TRENDS-MBL, is the one who used to conduct the field research for both SWS and Pulse Asia.

Jose P. de Jesus of Pulse Asia was the DPWH Secretary during the time of the late President Cory Aquino.

Antonio O. Conjuangco and Rafael Conjuangco Lopa of Pulse Asia are cousins of Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Conjuangco Aquino III

What else can we make of this information? Not much except the fact that now we know that these polling firms are so closely linked to the candidate who is now leading the polls. Since these polling firms do not divulge the types of questions they provide or how they conduct their surveys, no one really knows for sure how they come up with the numbers that they publish. It seems to me that there is a lot of secrecy in how they arrive at the conclusion of Noynoy being at the top. Another important question is, since the directors of the said firms are either friends or relations of Noynoy, are they conducting these surveys pro-bono? I can’t imagine these people rooting for another candidate. Gibo Teodoro might be a Conjuangco but we all know that there is some kind rumoured rift between him and the family.

Now we know that Richard Gordon was not out of line in suing these firms. Now we know that there is merit in his claim that the timing and the way these surveys are conducted might be favourable towards Noynoy. It is also quite suspect that media outlets also pounce on the results as soon as they are out and quickly publish these with their tailored interpretation. As Professor Alfredo Sureta said, candidates and campaign planners who subscribe to surveys know where and how to hit the opponents in the last stretch down the road. The problem is, if you don’t have the funds to subscribe to surveys, you won’t make the mark. But if you have friends in the right places like Noynoy, you may come out on top.

Professor Alfredo Sureta also mentioned that in the United States, during pre-election campaigns, poll results by established and upcoming media trade names and polling organizations are published side by side every day in the newspapers, posted on the internet and even aircast television. No results were identical and each varied significantly with the other. Because there are more polling firms in the US (and for the most part not likely to be owned by a relative of a presidential candidate), it levels the playing field. This gives the public wider latitude for decision making. It means, people can make their own informed decisions based on the comparison from more than two of them and not be forced to swallow a colluded ABS-CBN or Inquirer.net “interpretation” of the survey results.

It makes sense that the expansion in the number of polling firms not owned by an avid Aquino supporter or an Aquino relative “will enhance not only the credibility of the science of polling in the country but would also allow for a better flow of information to the voting public on the agenda and platforms of the candidates.”

So is it a case of an Aquino-Inc-owned polling firm interpreted by an Aquino-Inc media outlet leading to an Aquino-Inc-led administration?

Are you going to allow this to happen? Please, don’t let the Kamag-anak Inc continue their rule over the Philippines.

    I don’t believe Pulse Asia will conduct a survey to favor a particular candidate, like Noynoy Aquino. His (Aquino) relatives and friends may be sitting in the PA’s Board but i don’t think the people running the firm (whom i know are professors of reputable schools) won’t put their credibility at stake.

    As the President of Pulse Asia admitted in a tv interview this morning, there has been no study here in the Philippines that show the significance of surveys in creating a bandwagon or underdog effect. Pre-election surveys are just “snapshots”. Election day will show the real picture. And we can make a difference in painting the real picture by choosing a candidate who can best lead us and this country out of the mess we’re in now.

    THINK and vote wisely…

    • MAKABAYAN says:

      Hey… Pinay Goddess but think of the psychological effect to the voters knowing that their candidate is trailing behind because of the false trending…

      • Homer says:

        I think what PG was getting at was that the real fools are the ones who allow themselves to be influenced by these surveys, rather than see it as just a snapshot.

        If not, disregard nalang. 🙂

      • Pinay Goddess says:

        Reiterating my earlier comment in another post, pre-election polls are conducted to periodically generate the opinion or disposition of the public on matters of social and/or political relevance.

        Are pre-electoral surveys predictive?I don’t think so. The survey results may capture episodes but not necessarily show a trend. We should take into consideration several factors that influence voters and may induce changes or affirm their initial preferences. Voters preferences could still change across time, as the “environment” and “equation” changes.

        So if you really believe in your candidate, don’t believe on the survey results. Be vigilant and do something to improve his/her ranking. Help him/her win.

        Journalists and the public should pay less attention to the inexact art of election forecasting and more to the sinister implications of (hidden) political marketing” [Bogart, as cited in Lavrakasand Traugott, 2000)

    • ben says:

      Well it’s never a bad thing to keep educating people of the possibilities that people are most likely master-minding such activities as these surveys. There’s only 10 days to go and 10 days is still enough time to convince people not to vote for Homer Simpson.

      @Pinay Goddess

      As the President of Pulse Asia admitted in a tv interview this morning, there has been no study here in the Philippines that show the significance of surveys in creating a bandwagon or underdog effect.

      How convenient for Pulse Asia that there has been no study. It doesn’t mean though that the bandwagon effect or underdog effect is not real or not taking place.

      And I wonder why Noynoy made this statement: ““If we have a correct counting of the votes, I think we will be very victorious,” He was obviously referring to his lead in the supposedly “reliable” polls.
      🙂

      • BongV says:

        There is no study in the Philippines but lots of studies have been made in Europe, a reference is available in- the Broken Compass in a time of uncertainty

        Obviously many different factors determine why and how people vote, and no one would argue that opinions polls are a major cause. But there is strong evidence that opinion polls under certain circumstances might in fact influence election results (Holmberg and Petersson 1980; Petersson and Holmberg 1998). One important example is proportional election systems with a threshold limit, such as Germany, Poland, Denmark, and Sweden. Surveys show that tactical voting, that is whether or not to support a party close to the barrier for parliamentary representation, is partially based on media reporting of poll data.

        Although there is some empirical support for polls influencing elections the normative conclusion is not obvious. In an open society with freedom of speech there are many examples showing how citizens are influenced by different kinds of information. The publication of economic forecasts sometimes have a tremendous impact on consumers and investors. Political opinion data might help voters who want to use their vote for tactical purposes (Särlvik 1971).

        Regulatory policies

        A study from 1997, commissioned by international polling organizations, found that 30 of 78 countries had some kind of embargo concerning publication on or prior to election days. In 9 cases the embargo applied to the election day only (Røhme 1997).

        One of the most restrictive regulation of polls in a democracy was introduced in France in 1977. The law made it illegal to ‘publish, disseminate or comment’ on opinion polls during the week preceding an election. The law did not prohibit actual polling, but tried to shield voters from knowing the results. The law also contained rules on the publication of polls between elections. Any publication of a poll must include information about the identity of the polling organization, sample size and time of fieldwork.

        What Pulse Asia in effect is saying is similar to this – “there is no Philppine study on the side effect of viagra” (however, there are non-Philippine studies on viagra). Palusot, pure and simple.

      • GabbyD says:

        “Surveys show that tactical voting, that is whether or not to support a party close to the barrier for parliamentary representation, is partially based on media reporting of poll data.”

        actually this survey question has been asked and answered too. the answer is no.

        furthermore, there is NO “barrier” in RP elections. different circumstances.

    Oh my god this is like oh my god…I knew it. I mean really, it’s hard to get a 43% trust rating with everyone in the Philippines being cynical of the government.

    This comes to show that the family is not only the basic unit of Filipino society but also its biggest detriment.

    What can you expect.. They’ve been doing this for years..

    • guilbautedsookie says:

      I really thought the Filipino has reached his nadir. If I really cared about Noynoy I wouldn’t vote for him honestly. I’d want him to not be hurt cause people with BPD…bash them and it’s not gonna be good for them

    Kamaganak Inc went by the buzzword cronyism back in the Marcos years. People old enough will remember that word. Ironic that under an Aquino administration we will be seeing the renaissance of this same flavour of cronyism.

        wow, you must be god to know noynoy is. pathetic

      • Mimang says:

        They may be. But Gibo can’t be manipulated by the all the businessmen (ie, Makati Business Club) like Noynoy. He uses his brains. =)

      • Felz Garcia says:

        wow, you must be god too, or maybe you’re Gibo’s confidant?

      • jethernandez says:

        @ GabbyD

        Ang galing mo… paano mo nahulaan na relatives din ni Gibo yung mga relatives ni Noynoy sa SWS survey… bilib na talaga ako sa husay ng utak mo.

      • Shaddap says:

        GabbyD,

        You don’t get it. Rapa Lopa’s mother is Cory’s sister.

        Gibo is farther away from Rapa Lopa than Noynoy is. Study the Cojuangco family tree you idiot!

      • Jay says:

        hmmm… if they are noynoy’s relatives, they must be gibo’s relatives too.

        Thing is, and even more so, Gibo has done quite a bit to not even use the family name to give him a feel good image of his candidacy, much like Noynoy did. If he didn’t want his accolades and accomplishments to represent him and what he’s capable for the position, what is stopping him from simply name dropping the Aquino line? Simply, the guy has pride in his own ways to win the election. Even with Edu Manzano as his right hand man.

      • ben says:

        Actually, I know or have been told a few things from the inside regarding Gibo. All I know, is that I do not trust him. That’s all I’m saying…

        Remember, blood is thicker than wine. Also, if you can recall in one of the early forums, when asked about what he would do to GMA if he wins, Gibo did not directly answer but rather said something like, “It is not like us Filipinos to bring down the one who gave us the break/opportunities.” You make the judgment.

  10. GabbyD says:

    “Since these polling firms do not divulge the types of questions they provide or how they conduct their surveys, no one really knows for sure how they come up with the numbers that they publish.”

    this is not true. the questions, methods, and results are available. ask them for it.

    • benign0 says:

      Nah. The onus is on THEM to make that public proactively.😀

      • GabbyD says:

        it is available. on their website/releases. if u want more technical info, ask them for it.

    • BenK says:

      That’s a cop-out. They know that their integrity will be questioned, it is in their interests to pre-empt that by making the necessary disclosure.

      • BenK says:

        And even if you’re right, Gabby, isn’t that the role of the media?

      • Homer says:

        I think it may be safe to assume that it’s the role of the media to inform us of valuable info such as this, but they’re not doing it because it goes against their practice of dumbing us down. 😉

    • Pinay Goddess says:

      this is not true. the questions, methods, and results are available. ask them for it.

      True. I was in a forum where a Pulse Asia official presented how they conduct the surveys, with sample questionnaires, detailed explanation of the methodology and interpretation of results. All you have to do is request.

      The way i understood the presentation, it’s hard to manipulate the data gathered.

      • oceanofred says:

        Hard? Hello, I’ve asked some people who were asked by these surveyors, lo and behold, they really narrow down the choices from NA and MV.

      • Homer says:

        You mean…..instead of the surveyors asking you who your candidate of choice is, they ask you to pick between NA and MV? That doesn’t sound right.

        I haven’t run into anyone who’s been surveyed, so I don’t know exactly how they conduct these.

      • Felz Garcia says:

        wow, where did you get that info? galing galing mo talaga

      • ilda says:

        It’s hard to manipulate data especially when the questions that led to the data were tailored to suit a certain outcome. These firms can definitely ask leading questions. For example, if they ask “who among the two candidates do you prefer?” when in fact there are more than two candidates, something like that. It becomes pointless then to ask for the copy of the questionnaires particularly when the results have already been published by the media🙂

        The more important issues are:

        The polling firms are owned by relations and friends of Noynoy. That should already give people enough reason to doubt the results of the survey.

        and:

        Who pays for their subscription of these surveys? How we wish there were more polling firms to compare them with. As I said:

        It levels the playing field. This gives the public wider latitude for decision making. It means, people can make their own informed decisions based on the comparison from more than two of them and not be forced to swallow a colluded ABS-CBN or Inquirer.net “interpretation” of the survey results.

        It makes sense that the expansion in the number of polling firms not owned by an avid Aquino supporter or an Aquino relative “will enhance not only the credibility of the science of polling in the country but would also allow for a better flow of information to the voting public on the agenda and platforms of the candidates.”

      • GabbyD says:

        first:
        “The polling firms are owned by relations and friends of Noynoy. That should already give people enough reason to doubt the results of the survey.”

        this cant be right. the right question to ask is: what methods are they using, what is their track record, and can other surveys replicate the same data, given the same methods.

        replicability is the HALLMARK of science, ilda.

        but i , and SWS/Pulse agree with you — more surveys, the better.

      • ben says:

        Actually, the article in the link posted by BenK up there, I think, is spot on. It’s all about marketing… And having more surveys participate only minimizes the confusion, tho all surveys regarding political influence should never take part during election period. As the author in that article said, “If it is a greater problem here in this election than compared to, for example, the 2008 US elections, it is simply because there is a far fewer number of competing survey firms to give voters different sources of influence to consider.”

      • ben says:

        Hahah BenK… I didn’t realize that you were the author of that.

      • oceanofred says:

        Well, they will ask you first kung sino, pero as the survey goes along, the surveyors are narrowing it down until NA and MV na lang talaga. How atrocious naman that process is. Sheesh.

      • ilda says:

        Good one oceanofred🙂

      • Homer says:

        Damn, atrocious talaga.

        At least those of us who never believed in RP-style political survey conducting (in fairness to other survey firms who deserve respect) in the first place are now looking much better.

        Thanks for the info, Ilda.

      • ilda says:

        Yeah! I’m so glad I saw this information early today. I can’t believe that this entire time people like me weren’t aware that these firms are owned by Noynoy’s relatives and friends. Grabe! It’s unbelievable!!!

      • benign0 says:

        Questions like those made by chronic point misser GabbyD and the comment above by Pinay Goddess, well, miss the point.

        The point lies not in the availability of the questions/methodologies per se, but in the way they are designed as a package when served to the respondents. In, effect, the information on the methodology is made available to the public, true. But then the intended effect by the time these methodologies are public (as a disclaimer or public disclosure cop out) has already been delivered (with the aid of Big Media collusion).

        Some more insight…

        Opinion Polls and Elections“, The Diplomat

        The methodology used by major survey firms are also being questioned today. Abbey Canturias, Managing Director of Campaigns & Images Group, is disappointed with how SWS and Pulse Asia are conducting and presenting survey findings. ‘They’re not polling; they’re mentally preconditioning people’s choices toward a bandwagon effect—in favor of those who pay: their sponsors. I find that filthy practice very nauseating and revolting,’ Canturias wrote.

        Gordon sues SWS, Pulse Asia“, The Philippine Star

        The Comelec said pre-election surveys are constitutionally valid but are not helpful to voters because these set trending, which can influence the voters.

        “Instead of studying the platform, the qualifications, the issues concerning the candidates, you will rely on the trend,” Comelec Commissioner Rene Sarmiento said.

        Philippine Political Surveys are Fatally Flawed“, Kit Tatad, First Things First

        Candidates, would-be candidates and political parties have taken these survey results at face value as scientific, accurate and totally above-board. The mass media have passed them on freely without any critical analysis, and not a small portion of the public appears willing to accept them as gospel truth. Public discussion of the merits of the candidates and their respective political platforms, if any, has thus been thrust aside in favor of this undivided attention to the surveys.

        This gives the polling firms an excessive and unaccountable power they have not earned. There is no guarantee that this power will not be used to tax the public interest; there is, in fact, some doubt that the common good ever figured in the recent surveys. Based on the existing trade literature, not only is the methodology of the surveys fatally flawed, the pollsters have also failed to rise to the high professional and ethical standards of opinion polling in the more advanced countries, notably the United States. Thus, while claiming to serve the public interest, the surveys may have, in fact, only served some special political and commercial interests.

        Etcetera, etcetera.

        It’s like how at the end of a movie involving violence against, say, horses. The credits end with the disclaimer “No horses were harmed in the production of this film” and yet an emotional response from the audience upon seeing simulated harm done on horses portrayed in said film had already been effected.

        And that is the point.

        Disclaimer: Not all points made in AntiPinoy.com are readily evident to the average Pinoy mind.😀

      • Pinay Goddess says:

        @Benigno

        Well im just sharing an experience…it’s my learning experience and you dont have to question it. Contrary to one of the comments above, Im also validating the availability of information from survey firms, particularly Pulse Asia as i have experienced.

        I was also informed that Pulse Asia, in particular, uses a questionnaire patterned from a sample ballot. Sample question: If election is held today, who will you vote for? The choices are similar to what’s printed in the ballot that will be used on election day. So it’s not true that choices are trimmed down to only 2 or 3 candidates. I suggest you see their actual questionnaires to appreciate what I’m describing here.

        As for my other insights, please refer to my previous comments.

      • ChinoF says:

        These survey firms can hold public announcements and forums so they can try to assure you that they’re not doing anything funny, but when they get back into their offices, they start doing their funny stuff. They don’t need to manipulate the data… they just don’t need to show it to you their data, because it’s after all “confidential.” And they can cook up the numbers in a different paper. Remember, making the surveys is in the field, but the survey results and reports are all written up behind the scenes, so it’s easy for them to set up the smoke and mirrors. Also, there are such things as “false leaks,” meant to mislead people, which can be used in the public forums they hold. If you ask for data, they can create false data, meant for the sake of warding off suspicion. Thus such organizations can hide what they’re actually doing.

        The surveys after all are for politicians themselves and for foreigners… so both Pulse Asia and SWS in a way broke their professional duty by releasing something to the public. That alone could make you wonder, even if they’re not cheating on the data, what the hell are they thinking.

    Thus in the advent of an expose of THE TRUTH about the Noynoy campaign, the bias of the Philippine Media, and the ha-ha “scholasticism” of so-called “survey” firms like Pulse Asia and the SWS, Noynoy supporters and chronic point missers are now reduced to quibbling about inconsequential details.😀

    But, in the interest of objectivity and the people’s right to know, we give away copies for free to selected men and women who deserved freedom from the lie. Supposedly it’s not. A subscription copy normally costs $1,240 per survey.

    The content confirmation we gave on the copy featured in Ms. Celdran’s Facebook account was meant for the local copy sent to a diplomat (in Manila) from whom we tracked three leaks in the last two days.

    Be that as it may, far be it from our control, our surveys are not meant for publicity; they’re mainly for foreign business outside the Philippines looking in and preparing for policy changes in case a strong, potential winner emerges in the campaign homestretch.

    Whoever wins the campaign and by what means—that is not our business.

    Our responsibility is to find out who the likely winner will be so that we can brief our clients, even this early, on the policy regimen of the Philippines weeks before GMA steps down in June and few days before a new president is sworn in.

    Hope you indeed found it useful. That was not a leak. We’re giving this away gratis so you will know how SWS and Pulse Asia have dealt this country a shameful disservice.

    They’re not polling; they’re mentally preconditioning people’s choices toward a bandwagon effect—-in favor of those who pay: their sponsors. I find that filthy practice very nauseating and revolting!

    The way we crunch data, our multi-stage statistical sampling methods, simple math, and down-to-earth analyses—they are meant to show what a true, honest, factual survey should be. Believe me, any one who has basic algebra, physics, and geometry can do a survey the way we do.

    A survey is not a complicated science that SWS and Pulse Asia made us all believe. They did so to add public wonderment and sophistication to their despicable trade.

    In top-grade political surveys, you don’t ask a respondent whether he’s masa (CD) or middle class (B) or elite (A). That’s taboo in our culture, isn’t it?

    If that is the case, the use of the ABCD classification is supposedly suspect, shallow, and misleading. Political research is not a household income survey for an economic progress measurement. It is supposedly a yardstick of preference and the reasons behind it.

    You could choose to test yourself with this: Try asking person in the street if he is A, B, C, or D and you will be taken for a fool, if not avoided.

    We just wonder why every one that Pulse Asia or SWS asked about “economic class-related questions” seems to relish it all these years.

    Income is a sensitive cultural topic among Pinoys; it’s unmentionable. Even my wife does not know exactly how big I make on a good month and how small on a lean one. And yet our pollsters made it appear so downright easy.

    Honestly, all that has to be confirmed in a political survey is the accurate voter registration of the respondent, his age, belongingness to an economic sector, and his preference.

    You should at least be able to note “why” he decides so and “think” of the atmosphere across which he is making a choice (for example, corruption in Malacanang; Erap as a convicted criminal; Noynoy making PhP 1.2 billion from security contracts with GOCC and large import/export companies six years the whole time when Cory was president, among others.)

    Now that you understand, the gullibles among Filipinos will be one person less tonight than it was yesterday.

    Congratulations. You’ve just been freed from the lie! Feel free to share to others.

    Best regards,
    Abbey”

      Wow usi

      This is explosive stuff. Please share this blog to everyone you know. The Filipino people have the right to know before the election. There is still time to disseminate the truth.
      🙂

    • jethernandez says:

      @usi

      this is so true… the fact that the results of the surveys of SWS and Pulse Asia are broadcast / published means that the a-holes who have commissioned the research are desperate to sway/influence political perceptions and behaviour of the madlang bobong pinoy. methodologies, instruments, sampling, population and framework can always be questioned by anyone… even a cigarette vendor has an inalienable right to doubt these PhDiyish academic jargons. These are just METHODS.. not LAWS…

      @Ilda

      article is a good find…. and yes madame… I WILL SPREAD THE WORD… let thy will be done… hehehehe…

    Uh-huh. Eh kung sample ballot, dapat kasama yung iba pang kandidato. But based from what I’ve heard and read from people who was asked to do the survey, in the last part of the survey, it all boils down to NA and MV. Isn’t that atrocious? You’d be the judge.

    SWS and Pulse Asia are also profit-driven companies; they’ll conduct a survey if they’re commissioned to do so. If they want to prove to people that their surveys are valid and verified, they can inform us thru mass media on what are the questions, methodologies, calculations, etc.

    Lastly, think about it: are you willing to vote for someone that is leading on surveys although he’s dumb and incompetent to some extent? I think most of the wise ones will answer no; surveys are meant for those who don’t think and can be easily manipulated.

    • oceanofred says:

      This reply is intended for Pinay Goddess, btw.

      • Pinay Goddess says:

        @ oceanofred

        What i meant by sample ballot- one similar to the ballot that will be used on election day. So all candidates as listed by Comelec are included among the choices.

        Please check the firm’s website for your other inquiries.

        If you ask me, as i’ve said earlier, i won’t vote for a candidate who is less competent and has not accomplished much in terms of governance work, as i’ve done.

        It would be nice reading comments based on facts and validated by actual experience, and not from hearsay or assumption.

      • oceanofred says:

        Aray ko po naman. Nagbabasa ka ba talaga? Ito sinabi ko:

        “Eh kung sample ballot, dapat kasama yung iba pang kandidato”

        Tapos ito sinabi mo:

        “What i meant by sample ballot- one similar to the ballot that will be used on election day. ”

        D-U-H. That’s what I’m trying to point out eh. You’re saying na sample ballot ang ginamit? Eh bakit sa mga natanong ko na na-survey, they said they weren’t asked to use a sample ballot?

  17. I believe someone should file a bill to ban publishing survey results in the 2013 Elections. Surveys should only be used in private by those who commissioned them to guide them on their campaign strategies.

    These survey companies have no right to condition or mislead peoples’ decision. Practically, these are entities with business interest and they cannot survive without someone funding them. Their existence is primarily for profit.

    • Pinay Goddess says:

      If i remember right, in 2001 the SC has issued a ruling on the issue in favor of survey firms publishing survey results. Gotta check details.

      • ChinoF says:

        And SWS is proudly displaying it on their website. Chances are naimpluwensiyahan din ng Kamag-Anak Inc yung SC desisyon na yan. Sabi nga, surveys should be for private interests, not for the public release. Si SWS Mangahas mismo nagsabi yan. Ba’t lintik pa eh ipaparelease sa publiko yan? Maluluto talaga ang laban with public release of survey results, ma-cocondition talaga ang mga tao! Tama, ban public release of survey results. Have that 2001 Supreme Court decision overturned.

  18. luis says:

    no evidence that noynoy is manipulating the survey

    just because kamag-anak lang nya taga pulse and sws? come’on guys! ang babaw naman nun?

    sino ba ang walang kamag anak sa pinas? even gordon and bayani have a lot of kamag-anaks in power… because they cant let go of marikina and olongapo…

    • oceanofred says:

      Naman. Ang babaw din ng dahilan mo. You know the concept of conflict of interest? That’s what Anti-Pinoy show here. Ano ba, wag naman maging eng-eng sa logic. Please.

      • luis says:

        conflict of interest??? ang layo ng connections… sadyang pinipilit pagdugtungin
        wala lang magawa ang gordon-bayani fans…
        sila ang anti pinoy… walang alam kundi manira… hay ewan

      • oceanofred says:

        Kasi ganito yan ha.

        May kamag-anak and allies si Noynoy sa Pulse Asia. Ngayon, they do make surveys that are election-related knowing fully well that Noynoy is part of the Presidential race. Diba dapat hindi na sila nakikisawsaw dyan? Isipin mo, bakit sa gobyerno bawal makipag-deal ang isang opisyal sa isang kompanya na alam na may kamag-anak o kaibigan doon. Ganyan yung gustong ipakita nung post. And uh-oh, hindi naninira ang Anti-Pinoy, ang kandidato mismo ang naninira sa sarili niyang reputasyon, kasalanan ba na makita at ipahayag ang mga anomalya na nangyayari?

      • usi says:

        @luis: i agree w/ oceanofred. obviously, you do not know of Kamag-Anak Inc., what they did and what they are capable of doing again. sana alamin mo muna kung sino sila at bakit kamuhi-muhi sila. mukhang na-mistake mo ang Kamag-Anak Inc. to be equivalent to ‘political dynasties’–hindi po. ibang level ang pagkagahaman ng mga ito.

    • TheArch says:

      You have not heard of the atrocities that occurred during Cory’s time then. Dun nga nacoin ang term na “Kamag-anak, Inc.” eh, from Cory’s administration. Trust me, if you’d learn more of the Cojuangco-Aquino oligarchy, you’d realize how they put their family first before others. Long, long before Cory took the reins of the presidency, ganun na sila. There are a lot of books concerning the topic, by the way. Try “Greed and Betrayal” by Cecilio T. Arillo, and the Hacienda Luisita series of Stephanie Dychiu.

    • Jay says:

      just because kamag-anak lang nya taga pulse and sws? come’on guys! ang babaw naman nun?

      It makes perfect sense to be honest with you, especially regarding how the zombie brained voters are going to react. I’ll be honest its rather hard to break the hold of propoganda until you see the situation in every logical angle and point of view. Besides if you were to defend them, what would your grounds be? I’d love to read them.

      even gordon and bayani have a lot of kamag-anaks in power… because they cant let go of marikina and olongapo…

      Are they vying for positions that they aren’t capable of holding? I’m not surprised if many of them ACTUALLY have proven their worth for it rather than that century long Aquino-Cojuangco line that has existed. Oh but you must know about that if you DO KNOW what we are talking about.

  19. jethernandez says:

    Yang survey na yan ay pang JOLOGS. Mangahas is just holding on to his PhD pero maraming raket yang lintek na SWS na yan sa katawan. Una… yang sinasabing sayantipik survey ay HINDI TALAGA SAYANTIPIK.

    Baket… Dahil yang STATISTICAL METHOD to define the sample size of a given population is scientific because statisticians during the time it’s been formulated DO NOT HAVE THE LUXURY OF COMPUTERS…

    Pangalawa… after defining the sample size… IT IS ALREADY PURPOSIVE… YANG SELECTION NG AREAS of RESEARCH ay DEPENDENT SA PUMIPILI dahil MARAMI DAW DUN sa AREA na yun… o iba pang parameters ng PAGPILI…

    Pangatlo dahil mga lintek na PhD ang mga gumagawa nyang survey na yan… di nangangahulugang dapat ang methodology at mga research instruments nila AY maging STANDARDS o TAMA dahil may PhD sila!!! laging up for contention dapat yan.

    Panglima… ITO AY PERCEPTION RESEARCH… ON A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT… Ibig sabihin nun mamaya pwedeng si Amay Bisaya ang gusto ko… bukas si Imelda Papin at next week si Elizabeth Ramsey… Ang persepsyon ng tao ay nagbabago din sa klima… pwedeng pag mainit nung nagtatanong ang mga researchers ni Mangahas sa mga Key Informants… kaya paypay ng paypay at nung panahon na tinatanong yang respondent… type nya si Noynoy kasi MAHANGING masyado at mayabang.

    Panganim… yang SWS survey na yan AY BINABAYARAN ng grupo o indibidual na gustong magpa survey… ang DESIRED OUTPUT ay DAAAAPAAAT na FAVORABLE SA MGA NAGBABAYAD. Sira ulo ang magpapagawa ng research at ipapalimbag nya sa national tabloids na hindi FAVORABLE sa kanya…. SINO ANG NAGBABAYAD?

    Pangpito… SWS is hiding in the guise of an NGO… a non-profit, non-stock blah blah blah… atsuuu … titi ninyo.

    Pangwalo… Kung between 2,500 to 3,000 ang sample size ng mga 52 million voters… you need x number of field researchers para madeploy sa mga areas na sinasabi ninyong sayantipik… hehehehe… daming researchers nyan… maraming i e encode… maraming oras na gugulin… ang lumabas kahapon… ay resulta ng isa hanggang dalawang buwan na DATA GATHERING…

    Pangsyam… DAHIL mga mangmang, manhid ang otsenta porsyento ng Filipino population… mabilis silang mauto ng mga lintek na PhD na yan.

    Pangsampu… Dahil nung panahon nga ni Corazon Cojuangco Aquino… the dead mother of Abnoy Aquino nagsimula yang political survey na yan… kung ang isang taong may UTAK na matino… hindi sya maniniwala sa mga SABI SABI ng ALANG KA KWENTA KWENTANG SURVEYS na yan…

    sabi nila… ANG TAONG NANINIWALA SA SABISABI… WALANG BAIT SA SARILI!!!

    Hymen… I rest my case.

      The PhDs have justified the “scientificness” of the formula that computes for the number of samples of a given population. Kundi ba naman idahilan ng isang professor ko… MAG ISTATISTICS KA!!! Lintek… meron tayong 49,000 barranggay… 52,000,000 voters… 7,101 islands… ANG number of samples for a population of 52M ay around 3K… tapos sila ang bahalang mag select ng AREAS kung saan sila mag kokondak ng research…. GINAGAGO PALA TAYO NYANG SURVEY NI MANGAHAS NA YAN EH…

    Thanks for the post. This is a significant breakthrough. Let us all unite and pass this information to everyone…I mean it…EVERYBODY… 10 days to go. PASS IT ON to FACEBOOK, TWITTER, MEDIA, BOTOMO-PATROL KO, FRIENDS, FAMILY, VILLAR’S SUPPORTERS, ERAP’S SUPPORTERS, AND ESPECALLY ALL NOYNOY’S SUPPORTERS. LET US ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. This election will be a turning point of our country either for progress or worse being ran by the Kamaganak Inc.

    go to http://www.2010presidentiables.wordpress.com.

    this website embraced the website they are married to it and esp. moderator is a proNOynoy supporter. I recently been ban posting on that website for speaking the truth…..

      correction: this website the survey like they are married to it. esp the moderator who is a Pro NOYNOY supporter. I recently been banned posting on the website for speaking the truth!—–sorry for the typo.

    • Mimang says:

      UHmm… this question is kinda out of the box..

      So do you believe INC wont vote for Noynoy? I have many friends who are iglesias.. some hate noynoy as well.. as for the others i dont know.. but i dont know any INC who’s a noynoy supporter..

      • JOn says:

        That’s a good question. There is no way the INC will take the Aquinos. In the early 1960s, there was an incident between Ninoy Aquino’s private armies and brethren of the INC living in Hacienda Luisita. The leader of the Church was forced to move them out. Up to this day, it created a bitter memories. It comes down to Gordon, Villar, or Gibo…. they will announce there endorsement in the next few days. If you think about it. It will make a huge difference whom they will support. The PDI had claimed that they only consist of 2 million members. One would think twice, the INC had been around since 1914 and it has already spread to 88 countries. Out of 50 million registered voters, we can only use our own imagination.

      • BenK says:

        I would be surprised if they generate 2 million votes. A substantial number, certainly; but 2 million seems high.

      tanga! di mo alam ang pinagdadaldal mo. hindi porke survey TAMA! hindi porke sinabi ng dyaryo at survey na leading PANALO NA si Abnoy. syam na araw pa ang eleksyon. ang sinasabi lang dito… dahil QUESTIONABLE ang character ng gumagawa ng survey at ang paraan ng pag susurvey dapat di mo basehan ang SURVEY sa pagboto mo…

      Ang pagbasihan mo ay yung karakter ng tao. Sa kanyang kakayahang mamuno na ang pwede mong maging basehan ay yang kanyang mga nagawa. Ba’t di mo na lang iboto si Amay Bisaya kesa kay Noynoy Abnoy. Buti pa yun laging andun sa KBL… kasal binyag libing… nag bubuhat pa ng ataul. Buti pa si Lito Lapid may ginawa sa senado… si abnoy natutulog at nagyoyosi lang… ayun kaya nakakalbo.

      Pwede ba… according to the survey of my barbero… ang leading sa kanyang daliri sa kamay at paa na bitakbitak ay si Erap pa rin. Wala namang kaibahan ang survey ng barbero ko at ni Mahar Mangahas a… mas accurate pa nga yung sa barbero ko kasi mga nagpapakalbo sa kanya yun. Buti pa brod ganeto… sabihin mo kay Abnoy dun magpagupit… tangalin na lang nya yung natitirang buhok sa napapanot nyang ulo. Tamang tama… may libre syang yosi… sigarilyong HOPE.. yung nakakakulangot. Pwede pa silang mag leps to leps… pareho silang amoy nikotin… hehehe.

      I know this is a post of some weeks ago at ngayon lang ako nagrereply…

      pero luis, rich people usually put their family first because of, well, the money and the connections (not to mention their secrets). Rich families are almost always bound by their businesses. And besides, the Cojuangcos and Lopas are thisclose na lahat sila magkakakilala, ultimo yung apo sa tuhod at kabit ni ganyan. I have no say about Gibo though, pero I assure you, the Lopas are pro-Noynoy to the core and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the surveys have been compromised simply because they are relatives.

        Check the tagline. Who really is the Anti-Pinoy?😀

    • ben says:

      Funny, when Villar was leading in the polls early during campaign period, Noynoy complained and said that these surveys can be bought in Quiapo.

      Now that he’s winning, he’s acting like they are prophetic! See how your logic is flawed?

    • Jay says:

      yeah, i get it… if noynoy’s survey ratings is below 5%… would this website ever exist?

      Would noynoy ever let THAT happen? Seriously, are you living the same Philippines as I am? Or did the rugby get to your head early during your disillusioned youth?
      Besides the site also covered the Adam carolla pinoy idiocy on facebook as well. Too bad you weren’t part of that.

  24. warrior says:

    the author is obviously not a fan of nonoy… hence, anything and everything that is favourable to nonoy’s presidential bid is considered a sham…

    i bet that if the survey results show her candidate in the lead, then she will have no qualms about proclaiming it as bible truth regardless if it was done by SWS or Pulse Asia…

    suck it up, girl… you are better off campaigning for your candidate without resorting to black propaganda and mudslinging… it only shows how desperate and lowly you can get… that’s the sad truth… i pity you!

    • jethernandez says:

      and you are obviously a fan of Abnoy…

      if it is a fact that puts noynoy in the imburnal… it is black propaganda… wala na ba kayong sasabihin kundi black propaganda… GASGAS na yan!!! nasosobrahan ka ata ng inom ng black gulaman. ma iimpatso ka nyan…

      mas naawa ako sa yo dahil kung si LITO LAPID ay nagpumilit na gumawa kahit isang BATAS sa senado… si Abnoy walang naipasa ni isa… tsk tsk tsk tsk… bakit mo ba iboboto si Abnoy? DAHIL LEADING SA SURVEY? bwahahahaha…

      • TheArch says:

        Yun nga yung nakakaasar eh. Even though I will not vote for Villar, I have to agree to what he said last night in Bandila’s Hot Seat. Bakit daw pag galing kay Noynoy, katotohanan, eh pag galing kay Villar, black propaganda daw.

      • brianitus says:

        I also saw the Villar Hotseat session last night. I loved that he said that about the black propaganda. I also saw why Gordon will be better than Villar as president. Si Villar pumepreno pa magsalita, maingat kahit paano. Gordon will tell the people how it is, walang palamuti.

        Too bad mas gusto ng tao ang palamuti.

        Sh*t wrapped in good foil will still be sh*t. It may be better to look at but it will still be sh*t. Yan ang direction na pinapupuntahan ng Pinas ngayon kung totoo man ang surveys na yan. Yellow ribbon wrapped sh*t.

    • usi says:

      @warrior: so inaamin mong nakaka-brainwash talaga ng voters ang resulta nung surveys kaya ‘favourable to noynoy’s presidential bid’?😀

    • ilda says:

      @warrior

      Obvious ba, kung favourable yung surveys sa ibang candidates na hinde kamag-anak nung may-ari ng polling firms, hinde talaga questionable yung results. Kaya nga may issue kasi kamag-anak at kaibigan na nga ni Noynoy yung may-ari nung polling firms, tapos sya pa yung nasa top nung surveys. Hinde ka ba mag-tataka? And then they quickly publish the results sa newpapers owned by members of the kamag-anak inc, with their own interpretation.

      Sinagot mo yung sarili mo🙂

      BTW… THE L SIGN OF NOYNOY STANDS FOR LOSERS LIKE YOU!!!! wooooooooooo… you suck it up!!! you either stick that L sign on your nose… or stick it on your a s s…

    • ben says:

      If you vote for Noynoy just because he is either the son of cory and ninoy, or because he is “leading” the surveys, then you my friend have failed to use your brain.

      If Noynoy wins and fails as president (and he will I promise you that) then you and your moron co-“fans” complain, then you have just plain failed. Good luck? Will this country ever stop producing failures? Seems it won’t because the failures continue to put bigger, richer failures in power.

    • usi says:

      @warrior: if noynoy wins, we all lose.😉 at isa ka sa may kasalanan nun pag iboboto mo sya in spite of his PROVEN underachievement.

  26. elushie says:

    @warrior, if you really think hard, you would come up with the conclusion that Gordon is the best person who can lead this country. But if you have exerted enough effort in thinking and still came up with NOy2x, then your thinking is flawed.

    Maybe you can give us reasons why we should vote for Noy2x instead… And don’t BS with him “Fighting Corruption” because his 12 years as a Legislature with a big 0 law is in itself a corruption already because he is rubbing off people’s taxes with his pay and he is not doing his job.

    I think of Philippines as my big company, I would never hire a slacker to run it.

  27. ronald says:

    So bale, aside from the SWS & Pulse Asia, Where Aquino topped the surveys…kamag-anak din nya? kahit yung mga mock polls na ginagawa sa mga government offices?

    • TheArch says:

      I don’t think so, but who knows? Perhaps, it is the result of the bandwagon effect caused by the two polling firms? It could also be some other reason. We will never know. One thing’s for sure, though. Noynoy will win the elections. (Unfortunately.) Whether we like it or not, surveys have accurately predicted the outcomes of the elections (though my theory to such is that the surveys played a major influence in creating that outcome, i.e. bandwagon effect, etc).

      I do hope that more polling firms would be established to publish different survey results, so the public will be able to think more… or screw surveys altogether!

      • BenK says:

        I already explained all this, but what it comes down to is the sole purpose of publishing the results of any marketing survey (which is all this really is) is to influence consumer behavior. That works the same way whether it’s in this country or somewhere else. Therefore, the survey companies and the media are participating in the exercise of influencing consumer behavior, i.e. voter opinions. It’s fine if the candidates and the campaign organizations are doing it, and it’s even okay if the media is reporting when the candidates publicize the information, so long as they attribute it as such and not report it as an absolute. That’s where the problem is.

        You don’t like it, you can vote with your remote and with your wallet: boycott the offending TV and radio broadcasters, change the channel, switch them off, don’t patronize their advertisers, nor businesses that use the services of the survey companies.

        Just a suggestion.

      • TheArch says:

        Thanks, BenK. I happen to agree with you. I think surveys are fine, as long as the population is educated, like the the people in the US, for example. They have the ability to think on their own. This is, sadly, not the same here. Democracy works best only if the people know how to choose properly. After all, choice is the main purpose of democracy, am I right? But this is not the case. We have an underachiever and a convicted plunderer topping the polls. If only our people are educated like the students in UP, we would have Gordon and Gibo topping the polls. But sigh… Pinas talaga.

        * Gordon and Gibo are No. 1 and No. 2 in the 2nd round of UP Botong Isko mock elections, while Bayani and Mar are No. 1 and No. 2 in the vice presidential portion.

      • BenK says:

        Think about it: what is the purpose of publicizing the results of pre-election surveys? Most people would probably say, “Well, it’s news, we can know who is ahead in the race.” Why do you need that information at some point prior to the counting of actual votes? What use do you (as a voter) intend to put that information to?

        If you are exercising your choice as a voter, making up your own mind, why do you even need to know what everyone else thinks?

    • usi says:

      @ronald: ang problema pina-publicize lang ng media giants natin yung surveys kung saan si Noynoy ang nag-lead. pero surveys na olats sya, hindi bino-broadcast.

      gaya ng sinabi ni TheArch, dalawang rounds na ng UP mock polls ang natapos. consistent na no.1 si Gordon, followed by Gibo. naging matunog ba sa news? hindi.

  28. GO Gibo! says:

    By the way, this certain professor you are talking about is executive director of StratPOLLS. Their last survey can be found here: http://www.stratpolls.webs.com/index.htm

  29. luraaa says:

    Hmm. I wonder how they do these surveys. By phone? In person? (or a made-up fantasy?)

    I work for a Market Research company and when there’s an upcoming election (which usually happens in Canada, whenever the Members of Parliament complain about the current Prime Minister), surveys are done by these research companies wherein they make cold calls to Canadians all across the country. This is random sampling, and all the agents do is to call these people and ask them who they want as the next Prime Minister. Simple as that.

    Funny thing is, survey results aren’t really that important here, and the campaign period isn’t that dirty (literally and figuratively) compared to Pinas, after experiencing the Canadian elections in 2008.

    (and I have just proclaimed to the world (dahil ganyan kadami ang readers/ followers ng AP) that I live in Canada. but hey, who cares? I just wanted to set an example. napa-isip ako bigla sa mga serbey na yan e.)

    • Jay says:

      well, ya its Canada. parliament isn’t exactly dirty about their tactics since the country isn’t as run down as pinas and its citizens aren’t mindless idiots who think elections are based on popularity. The people must have a good idea on who they support and expect complete things out of the person they put in power. BTW this is coming from a guy who is educated on the electoral process of your neighboring country down south.

      • luraaa says:

        Exactly. Because I’ve been living here for quite some time now my home country’s flaws are getting clearer in my eyes everyday. And this is why I became an AP (or starting to, as I’ve just recently discovered this site).

      Felz…

      Yang mga close minded sa mga prophetic statements nila Noynoy at handlers nya ay wala nang pag-asang magpalit pa ng iboboto nila. Sana kung magkakaroon ulit ng election i educate ninyo ang sarili ninyo kung paano ang tamang pagpili ng kandidato….

      Una dahil hindi nanalo sa survey…

      Pangalawa… tingnan ang accomplishments… mula sa academic endeavors nya… professional engagements… kasama na dyan ang mga ginawa sa hinawakan nyang upisina o ahensya ng gobyerno…

      Pangatlo… pag-aralan ang character ng tao… kung saan sya tumatayo sa mga issues nung nanunungkulan sya sa exective, legislative at judicial branch ng gubyerno…

      Si noynoy… bagksak sa accomplishment… walang nailimbag na batas sa loob ng syam na taon bilang mambabatas… buti pa si Lito Lapid may nagawa na isa… si Noynoy… bokya.

      Si noynoy… di kumikilos o tumugon man lamang sa mga hinanahing ng magsasaka ukol sa pagkakaroon ng sarili nilang lupa…. dapat sana yang mga magsasaka ng Hacienda Luisita ay naipamahagi pero imbis na ginawa ‘to… pinagbabaril at pinagpapatay sila… HINAYAAN lamang nya ang pangyayaring yan na walang DEFINITE STAND SA ISSUE NG LAND REFORM and ATROCITIES DONE TO THE FARMERS… Wala din syang positive na CIVIC PROGRAMS na ginagawa… LAHAT NG NABABASA SA DYARYO AY PURO SUGAR COATING…

      Ngayon… these are not statements against Noynoy but JUST STATEMENTS OF FACT… IT is NOT EVEN BLACK PROPAGANDA!!! Analyze these facts… maraming NEUTRAL SOURCES sa internent ng mga yan….

      BTW… ang isang accomplishment ni noynoy ay mag-lead lamang sa survey… yun lang… wala nang iba… wala namang nag de deny sa kampo ni noynoy na hindi nangyari ang mga sinasabing yan eh… puro sinasabi black propaganda… AGAINST NOYNOY… KUNG DI TOTOO YANG MGA YAN… ALL HE NEEDS TO DO IS TO DENY THEM…

      Alam mo Felz, tanggap na namin na you are supporting Noynoy kahit na alam mong hinde na logical yung reasons sa bagboto mo sa kanya.

      Ang purpose ng blog na ito ay para sa mga undecided voters. Para ito duon sa mga nag-sasabi na “Pero, according to the survey, popular daw si Noy.” In short, para sa mga tamad mag-isip. So what kung popular si Noy? He is not the best and the brightest. Kung good guy talaga si Noynoy, how come his supporters do not emulate his traits? Where’s the humility in his supporters? I don’t see it.

      Hinde natin kailangan ng nagpapakabait-baitan para umasenso. Ang kailangan natin ay someone who will motivate us to do the right thing. Someone who is not afraid to tell us what needs to be done. Hindi yung pa-pitsi-pitsi. Gets mo?🙂

    • usi says:

      @Felz: kung ayaw mo maliwanagan kaya ayaw mo i-discuss yung rason mo for choosing Noynoy, pride yan. maling klase ng pride, hindi makakatulong sa pag-unlad ng bansa natin.

    • Jay says:

      Felz, if you are resigned to that they you better be ready to participate when the leader you voted in starts doing things you did NOT EXPECT of him to do for the country. That he’s doing things that weren’t your basis of why you chose him as a candidate to begin with.

      When that time comes, you better not regret your actions. And count the years too. 6 of those with the guy whom you elected and each day of those 6 years, you better damn smile and say nothing bad about what you did. AT ALL.

  32. oceanofred says:

    @Felz, di ko naman kailangan maging Diyos para makita yan eh. Simple observation will do. Oh and to answer your question on how I got those answers, I asked people who were asked in surveys, simple as that.

    @FELZ, bakit nga si Noynoy ang iboboto mo? bakit siya ang choice mo? Di ka makasagot no.??

    Don’t be giving me “mama and papa” relations. As far as I’m concerned , Noynoy is the biggest failure of the Philippines waiting to happen. It’s confirmed. Natatakot ako para sa bansa natin pag nanalo si Noynoy.

    SAD but TRUE.

    Isama mo pa si KRIS AQUINO. Mula’t mula napakababaw magisip.

  35. benign0 says:

    These “surveys” are but another of many examples of the way Pinoys pervert otherwise useful or benign tools. Here’s what I wrote a while back when the Media were trumpetting what at the time was a Pulse Asia “survey” finding that Noynoy had a 44% expected vote:

    Indeed I agree. Popularity surveys are very useful to politicians as tools for fine-tuning their campaigns. They are practically indispensible, much the same way as a speedometer is an essential device in motorists’ on-going efforts to avoid getting speeding tickets.

    On the other hand:

    How exactly do the voters benefit from these surveys?

    Where is this “service” provided to the public? From the perspective of the voters, what do they gain from the information in these surveys in terms of tools they could use to evaluate their options?

    For me it seems that knowing “Noynoy Aquino 44%” ergo “Noynoy maintains big lead” leaves voters none the wiser about whether that guy is qualified to lead and govern our lot. For that matter, neither are we any more cluey on which among the rest of them are.

    What we do find that the non-politician sector of the public is left with is a bit more disturbing:

    Publication of popularity metrics like these induce a bandwagon effect.

    It’s Advertising Trickery 101.

    Millions of labanderas testify that Ajax or Breeze (or whatever detergent you subject your hapless servant to) does the job! Or so the old advertising formula goes. Substitute “labanderas” with “voters” and “Ajax” or “Breeze” with whoever happens to come out on top in these “surveys” and you will catch my drift.

    Too bad, Mr Mangahas and all the other Kamaganak Inc board members of Pulse and SWS. You may have all the disclaimers in place to show that you merely do these “surveys” subject to the instructions of those who commission them. But who really cares about that token propriety in the way you conduct business? This is the Philippines — where perception trumps propriety any day. Unfair that you get your good name branded as a minion of Kamaganak Inc on the basis of said perception? Well, tough luck. You should have thought about that before you went into bed with ABS-CBN and the Inquirer in this instance.😀

    “The Bagumbayan Party presidential candidate Sen. Richard Gordon would always correct anyone wishing him “good luck” after posing for photos with him or listening to him speak.

    He would tell them: “I don’t believe in luck.”

    Instead, he would ask people to say, “God bless.” Or to wish him instead, “Good Skill.”

    Yep! DICK GORDON KNOWS HIS ENGLISH VERY WELL. Idyot peryodistas don’t. See, winning Malacanang is not about LUCK! GOOD LUCK! It is about Oro-Plata-pa-Porma! It is about issues. About fixing things. NOT ABOUT LUCK! IT IS ALL ABOUT SKILLS!

    Dude! GORDON IS GOOT! PREP BY RENAT0.

  38. Subliminal Messenger says:

    “Gordon was initially defiant when the Commission on Elections last March gave notice that some of his billboards were in violation of the Fair Elections Act, and asked that they be taken down.

    The candidate said then he would not dismantle the billboards, explaining that they had been donated by supporters and had been put up without his knowledge.

    As a lawyer, he said he believed that the Comelec notice “collides with the freedom of expression of our supporters.”

    LOOKIT, Dick Gordon knows what he is talkin’ ’bout. COMELEC cannot order him to tear down the billboard because he didn’t put it up. COMELEC should talk to Gordon’s fans who put it up. STUPID IDIYOT MEDIA. THEY ARE ONLY GOOT IN POLITICAL ANAL-iSYS but EXTREMELY STUPID ON OTHER THINGS. See, political analysis doesn’t has NO LEG TO STAND ON. It is all based on gossips, tsismis, innuendoes. DUDE! IDIOCY OF FILIPINOS KNOWS NO END!

    COMELEC should know who they are up against. Gordon&Renat0

  39. Subliminal Messenger says:

    THESE FILIPINO MEDIA has no boundary when it comes to stupidity and idiocy. They are telling Dick Gordon “Good Luck”!

    It is like saiding to recently married couple “Good Luck!”.

    SHEBAMETIMBAS!

    his is Richard Gordon, presidential candidate, who spent his RockEd radio interview insulting the Cojuangcos of Tarlac, insinuating all manner of foul deeds. This is Gordon, straight shooter, offended at a caller’s curious question asking him if he thought the Cojuangcos were really corrupt. This is Gordon, presidential candidate, howling at his interviewer for calling him a coward for answering the question with an angry question. And so the best man for the job ripped into Erwin Romulo, UNO editor, RockEd member and Free Press publisher. “You’re just the son of Bert Romulo,” said the red-faced little man, forgetting the live webcam. “You’re nobody.”

    HA!HA!HA!HA! Renat0’s words put in the mouth of idyot peryodistas!!!!!! Renat0’s posts here copied by idyot peryodistas! ROCK-ON DICK! ROCK-ON ANTIPINOYS!

    Media people are afraid of Dick Gordon! NOT BY HIS Renat0-like-tantrums but because of Dick’s Renat0-like-intelligence. ABS-CBN, Villar and Benigno, Jr. even afraid to DEBATE HIM. Because Debating Dick is like debating Renat0 waste of time.

  41. i am wise. i will vote. says:

    GO SMART! if you really are a smart person you will vote independent of all the surveys whether they are accurate or not.

    it is the business of the polling firms to conduct their surveys following the procedures i am sure they have studied well. statistics after all is a field. they follow scientific formulas. if you dont have full comprehension of the science of it then dont simplify it like some ignorant fool. i happen to know some of the founders of these firms and they are pretty decent people.

    for the unsatisfied disturbed souls, unite and make your own polls if you think you know everything.

    for the really wise ones, just vote. for the dumb ass ones, TRY to vote wisely at the very least.

    in the end, it all boils down to standing firm for what you believe in. don’t be swayed by either the perfect campaign or the propaganda. THINK!

    • ilda says:

      i am wise,

      What you said below is not so wise:

      for the unsatisfied disturbed souls, unite and make your own polls if you think you know everything.

      Are you serious? If you still don’t get the point here, blogger Benk said it best:

      “From my point of view, the controversy surrounding the handling of opinion surveys as they relate to Noynoy Aquino simply illustrates a fundamental flaw in the public’s and the media’s understanding of what the surveys are supposed to do. Presumably, a political candidate and his campaign organization should make the same use of the surveys as anyone else who is engaged in marketing something: to determine the preferences and attitudes of the market in order to make their ‘product’ more appealing to that market, and as a basis for validating the quality or value of their product.

      “If the information about the survey results was coming only from the camps of the various candidates, there would be nothing wrong at all with that; they could cherry-pick the results to their hearts’ content to put their candidates in the best light. The real problem is that pre-election survey results are not treated as advertising, or regarded as such by the potential customers – the voters – but are treated as news. The conflicts of interest lie in the participation of the media and the survey companies in the exercise. TO WHICH I ADD, ARE OWNED BY OLIGARCHS RELATED TO NOYNOY AQUINO.

      “In similar fashion, the media routinely violates any sense of propriety by reporting survey results, because in doing so they are also working to influence consumer behavior, and doing so while hiding behind the fig leaf of respectability called “journalistic integrity.” Both the survey companies and the media, then, are abusing the public trust. Granting that trust, however, is within the power of the public, as is the choice of what inputs to use in making a decision to “buy” a candidate-product with their votes. Thus, if people understand that basing their vote on the publicized results of opinion surveys is allowing their behavior to be influenced by people whose main objective is to sell them a particular candidate, and they’re okay with that, there’s nothing anyone can or should do to stop them. If, however, the people are in the habit of basing their purchasing choices on different criteria – say, for instance, buying Sensodyne toothpaste because it makes their teeth feel better and not because someone else’s dentist said he recommends it – then they should vote accordingly. Remember this, though: democracy means “rule by the people,” which suggests a bit more involvement on the people’s part than “voting for whom they’re told to vote for.”

      Did you get that? Noynoy being on top of the supposedly “reliable” surveys should not be front page news worthy. If his party subscribed to the polling firms, it should just be for their own use. What’s happening is that they are using it to tell people that they are already winning and Noynoy is already making statements that if the counting of the votes is accurate, he will be victorious. He is basing his assessment of his impending win on the surveys conducted by his family and friends. If the results of the polls are publicized, having more polling firms to compare it with would give people a better way of analyzing the data to be true. We cannot rely on just these two polling firms alone to say that Noynoy was cheated because the surveys they conducted were consistent that he has been on top.

      • i am wise. i will vote. says:

        to everyone in general,

        “Thus, if people understand that basing their vote on the publicized results of opinion surveys is allowing their behavior to be influenced by people whose main objective is to sell them a particular candidate, and they’re okay with that, there’s nothing anyone can or should do to stop them.

        right so.

        then let people vote for who they want based on their own criteria. in the same fashion that people telling others to vote for noynoy just because he’s the son of 2 famous people, etc it’s disdainful also to tell them not to vote for him just because he is somehow related to the people conducting the polls wherein he is number one according to the results.

        btw, i am not a noynoy fan so no need to lash out on my comment if that is a major consideration on lashing out on people’s comments here.

        and i need not tell you who i am supporting too. that’s up to me if i decide to keep that within myself and the ballot folder on the elections

        just a piece of advice peeps. if you want to campaign for someone, then do so. sell your candidates. there’s no law against over selling even in marketing. there is no perfect product.. as long as they all pass quality check, they all deserve space in the grocery shelves. let the consumers decide.do not tell them what to do or not to do regardless of whether they were influenced by consumerism.

        do not badmouth. poisoning the well isn’t the solution. educate the undecided instead if you are so afraid of them being veered so easily.

        and do not also belittle people based on their choices. i’m sure each candidate has his own fair share of supporters who are great thinkers and achievers.

        sa mga taong ganun na lang magbrand ng abnoy retard etc. i wonder how you’ll handle such insults if any of your loved ones actually is.. just so you know too, some of those ‘retards’ achieve more than some more capable people.

        discussion is always good. di lang talaga maiwasan na masingitan ng mga tao na masabi na lang kung ano gustong sabihin kahit hindi pinag iisipan.

        i wondered why the site is called antipinoy. going back to the previous comments, it really is a misleading term. people will always tend to assume the obvious, not all people read the about us, etc. but i did read the hello world anyway to get to know you a bit better. and i agree to the mission and vision of the site.

        but do you think refuting everybody’s opinion will lead to something. i hope you’re doing more than just blabber. a coach anyway just don’t scream. he trains his team.

        mr owl,

        i’m entitled to my premises just like you are..
        do i have to have a philosophy degree to argue?
        are you as wise as the owl in your profile pic?

        if that’s how being anti-pinoy is to you well… i have no more argument. i hope this site generates the type of discussion you want. may they truly serve your love for the Philippines. good luck to fellow visitors.

      • ilda says:

        @i am wise

        You said:

        educate the undecided instead if you are so afraid of them being veered so easily.

        Isn’t that exactly what we are doing here? Not everyone knows that the polling firms are owned by family and friends of Noynoy. Not everyone is aware that the poll results should not be taken into consideration when voting for someone.

        You also said:

        then let people vote for who they want based on their own criteria. in the same fashion that people telling others to vote for noynoy just because he’s the son of 2 famous people, etc it’s disdainful also to tell them not to vote for him just because he is somehow related to the people conducting the polls wherein he is number one according to the results.

        I’m sorry, but what you said above still doesn’t make any sense because Noynoy himself admitted that he shouldn’t even be running if not for the outpouring of support after his mother’s death. It’s the silliest thing since Erap ran because there are other candidates who are better than Noynoy and Noynoy is not even competent and hardly has any accomplishments. And now that the support for Noynoy is waning, they have succumbed to using the tactic of telling the public that:

        1. The fight is between good (Noynoy) and evil (Villaroyo). What about the other candidates? Why is Noynoy good? Where’s the proof of this?

        2. LP is trying to trick people into believing that since it is only Noynoy and Villar who are popular among the voters, if they don’t vote Noynoy, Villar will get most of the votes.

        3. Media outlets like the Inquirer are always publishing poll results only from SWS and Pulse Asia. They do not even publish mock polls held at UP or other campuses.

        4. Recently, Noynoy made a statement saying that “If the counting of votes is accurate, then we will be victorious.” He can’t get any sillier than that because the surveys are only a snapshot and people can still change their mind on Election Day and now we know he cannot base his hopes on the result of surveys conducted by polling firms so closely linked to him.

        You cannot deny the fact that Noynoy has media backers who always give him good publicity. He has an unfair advantage from the very beginning and that advantage is not based on his competency.

        And then ang labo nitong sinabi mo:

        discussion is always good. di lang talaga maiwasan na masingitan ng mga tao na masabi na lang kung ano gustong sabihin kahit hindi pinag iisipan.

        Excuse me, but it was you who started the put down by saying this:

        for the unsatisfied disturbed souls, unite and make your own polls if you think you know everything.

        I don’t even think you would say the above if you weren’t a Noynoy supporter. Anyway, I don’t care who you are supporting. I just think that you still don’t get the point of this article. You also don’t get the name of this site. If you have a problem with it, build your own site and call it what you want.

        It’s the readers’ initiative to declare that we are badmouthing, and that’s their opinion.

      dear wise (or stupid)

      the title of the article states categorically that the owner/founders/CEOs/board of directors are linked up with Noynoy either as a friend or a relative…. IF THOU ART WISE… ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS TO REFUTE THAT…. if you can prove that the article is false… then can prove that IT IS BLACK PROPAGANDA… buuuuuuuuuuut……. IF CAN’T CAN’T don’t go with the argument that YOU KNOW “PERSONALLY” THESE PEOPLE AND THAT THEY ARE OF DECENT STOCK. that is a stupid premise.

      namber two… you cannot conclude that those who have commented do not have a background on research of any form… AGAIN… ANOTHER STUPID PREMISE…

      so I THEREFORE DOUBT THAT THOU ART WISE… AND YOU WILL VOTE WISELY… because thou art STUPID…

      halleluyah hymen…

        ***IF YOU CAN’T… DON’T GO WITH THE ARGUMENT THAT YOU KNOW….

    How about this survey by Campaigns and Images Group, commissioned by British and American investor firms, with 51,000 (Yes, FIFTY ONE THOUSAND, not just 2000) respondents from different sectors and age groups. Guess who they pick?

    Really? Which one is more credible?!?!?!?

    @i am wise. i will vote.:

    it is the business of the polling firms to conduct their surveys following the procedures i am sure they have studied well. statistics after all is a field. they follow scientific formulas. if you dont have full comprehension of the science of it then dont simplify it like some ignorant

    it fool.

    > I totally agree with you: SWS/false asia is a multimillion BUSINESS. How sure are you that they follow SCIENTIFIC
    FORMULAS – PROOF? (reload you shotgun with blank, errr, real bullets)

    it i happen to know some of the founders of these firms and they are pretty decent people.

    it

    > DECENT people = PAID hacks. Just like a jukebox is a decent machine.

    i

    it n the end, it all boils down to standing firm for what you believe in. don’t be swayed by either the perfect campaign or the propaganda. THINK!

    it

    > We do THINK but, obviously, the target of these surveys are the tens of millions of zombie voters who are being gypped by the survey-founders you know.

    > Unless you can show me the methodology these surveys follow, the only thing I find accurate with your literary is your alternick: I AM A WISE (SNAKE), I WAS BOUGHT (mang-ahas)

  47. Pusta? mgrereply ka? says:

    kung kamag-anak nga nila NA ang mga founder o may-ari ng mga Survey firms, bakit hindi nila ginawang # 1 si NA nung tumatakbo itong Senador nung 2007? kung para lang din naman sa kawalang hiyaan, e bakit hindi nila ginamit ang survey firms nung tumakbo si NA sa pagka kongresista? o para linisin ang imahe ng Pamilya Aquino laban sa HL issues?

    Kung ang kandidato mo ba ang nangunguna sa SWS and PA survey, magagawa mo bang batikusin ang mga survey firms na ito? sa malamang hindi..kagaguhan at kaimpokritohan kung sasabihin mo sa akin na “oo”..

    Paano naman yung mga tinanong sa survey na kaparehas mong pumapabor sa gusto mong kandidato?

    bakit hindi na lang kayo gumawa ng survey para malaman kung sang ayon o di sang ayon ang mga tao sa survey ng panghalalan? ng malaman nyo ang reaksyon ng tao sa inyo?

    kung kayo mismo(mga AYAW SA SURVEY N PANGHALALAN) ang mgsasagawa ng survey para malaman kung sang ayon o di sang ayon ang mga tao sa survey na panghalalan.. SA MALAMANG AANI KAYO NG BATIKOS.

    ano ba ang punto ng survey kung ganon? WALA..subalit, WALANG SINO MAN ANG MAKAKAPIGIL O MAKAKAHADLANG SA “PAGLALATHALA” NG RESULTA SURVEY NA ISINASAGAW NG SINO MAN, DAHIL PROTEKTADO ITO NG ATING SALIGANG-BATAS..(unless its a threat to national security) kalayaang magpahayag at maglathala, katulad ng karapatan at kalayaang TINATAMASA MO SA BLOG NA ITO..

    p.s. kahit pa ANG COMELEC AT SI DICK GORDON..KAGAGUHAN AT KATANGAHAN ANG GAGAWIN NILA O NINYONG HAKBANGIN PARA MAIPATIGIL ANG PAGSASAGAWA NG SURVEY…

    Im not a supporter of anyone. Malalim ang pagkakaunawa ko sa halalan..kasing lalim ng problema sa ating lipunan. HINDI AKO BUMOBOTO. at kailanman hindi ako boboto..
