Surveys 'should not be basis of your vote' in May elections – OCTA

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 23) — The OCTA Research on Wednesday reminded the public that survey results should not be the basis for voting in the upcoming general elections in May.

“Surveys are just a snapshot. They should not be the basis of your vote," said OCTA Research fellow Ranjit Rye in a virtual press conference.

"Your vote should be disciplined by belief, by platform, by program, by the hopes and dreams articulated by your candidate," he pointed out. "Surveys are just supposed to provide information.”

“Just because a survey showed a particular trend at the moment, (doesn’t mean) that (it) is permanent” That trend will change," Rye added. "The trend will change the more individuals believe that what they do as citizens from now until the May elections is more important than what any survey results will show.”
