In this entry, we will try to analyze who, among the presidentiables, is the “King or Queen of the Philippine Universities”; based on how many of the university students have voted in the various university mock polls nationwide.
We have analyzed more than 30 separate polls, and more than a hundred thousand votes to come up with the infographics.
A short disclaimer first:
1. If the total percentages don’t add up to 100%; most of the time, those are the unaccounted percentages of those who: a) abstained, or; b) those percentages which belonged to the previous candidates who were either disqualified or have been withdrawn from the presidential race.
2. The surveys here are those that we have researched from verified URLs only.
3. If the conducted poll covers two months, we would consider it to have been conducted on the latter month.
4. All of these surveys are conducted from November last year up to the last week of April.
All of the photos here can also be viewed via Facebook by clicking here.
So, here is the average percentages of those polls:
And here are the infographics of all those universities and colleges with the corresponding sources.
It can be noted that nearly 20% of the Philippine population is composed of young people with ages 15-24. Garnering a large number in the so-called “youth vote”, would obviously be an advantage for any candidate for the coming elections.
The wrap on millenials is they just are not politically-motivated. They do not show up or that they care more about their smartphones than they do on who’ll be the next president.
But these mock polls show the opposite.
What is your take on this? Who’s the leading presidentiable at your school? Please comment your thoughts below.
