Respondents Rarely Shift Support, Pulse Asia Chief Says

Pulse Asia Chief: 2022 Election Results Mirror the Final Survey as Respondents ’Rarely Shift Support’

The results of the 2022 Philippine national elections are generally the same as the results of the final survey of Pulse Asia, with its respondents being confident of their answers and rarely shift their support.

“Sa aming karanasan, di namin nakikita—walang pag-aalinlangan [ang respondents] sa pagbabanggit ng kanilang napupusuan,” Pulse Asia Research Inc. President Ronald Holmes told ABS-CBN’s TeleRadyo.

(In our experience, we don't see it—there's no uncertainty when respondents gave answers on their preferred candidates.)

“Pinapangalagaan namin ang integridad ng aming mga survey, sumasalamin ito sa disposisyon ng mga tao noong panahong ginawa namin ang survey. Maaaring magbago ang disposisyong ito ngunit nakita natin wala halos pagbabago.”

(We take care of the integrity of our surveys. These mirror the disposition of the public during the time of the survey. It could change, but we saw that there was almost no change.)
