JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) – Survey of Precision Public Policy Polling (PPPP) from the United States showed Prabowo Subianto – Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno pair to win the presidential election, with an electability 55 percent and Joko Widodo – Ma’ruf Amin by 39 percent.

“Based on the survey, 54 percent of respondents wanted a new president and those who still wanted Joko Widodo to return to president by 37 percent, while 9 percent of respondents did not give answers,” PPPP’ Director of Operations, Jokovic Martinez, said in a press release on Tuesday (04 /09).

He explained, from 54 percent of respondents considered Widodo not to run the government properly, which results in clean government and there are still many corrupt practices related to infrastructure project projects.

Otherwise, out of 3,032 respondents or 58 percent stated that Indonesia was being managed by the deteriorating Widodo’ government. Indonesia is considered to be in the threat of debt which has increased by 69 percent to Rp4,416 trillion (US$313.19 billion) during 2014 – 2018.

However, when respondents are asked questions if the presidential election is held when the survey is conducted, who will be elected? The result is 38 percent chose Widodo and 40 percent chose Subianto.

And when asked a question choose incumbent or opposition to 3,032 respondents? The respondent said, 36 percent voted for Widodo – Amin and 51 percent voted for Subianto – Uno, he said.

Meanwhile, the remaining 13 percent of respondents said that they still had not made a choice. Of the 13 percent, who have not yet decided to vote, when asked again who will be elected later, as many as three percent choosed Widodo – Amin and four percent choose Subianto – Uno. Then, 6 percent decided not to choose.

“It can be concluded that the opposition will win the presidential election, with an electability rate of 55 percent and incumbent only 39 percent. So the difference is 16 percent,” he concluded.

This survey was conducted March 22 to April 4, 2019, with 3,032 respondents out of 800,091 polling stations in 499 districts and cities in 34 provinces. Interviews were randomly selected and conducted by telephone using trained professional survey staff (direct agents) from the PPPP telephone call center in Jakarta.

The polling process, he said, was closely monitored to ensure a representative sample of registered voters in the electoral commission voters was achieved based on party, geography, gender, age and other demographics. There is also a margin of error for a sample size of 3,032 which is plus minus 1.78 percent at a confidence level of 95 percent.
