Mike Defensor claims he’s statistically tied with Joy Belmonte despite mayor’s 16-point lead
Anakalusugan party-list Rep. Mike Defensor claims he’s statistically tied with Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte even if a survey conducted by Publicus Asia showed Belmonte with a 16-point lead.
Publicus Asia’s survey conducted from March 16 to 21 showed Belmonte with a 40 percent voter preference rating while Defensor had 24 percent.
In an interview on CNN Philippines’ “The Source,” Defensor said he was statistically tied with Belmonte survey’s margin of error was between 10 percent and 15 percent. It also only had 100 respondents.
Netizens were amused and unconvinced by Defensor’s explanation.
