Jokowi-Ma’ruf Is Not Safe, Prabowo-Sandiaga Still Has Hope - Political indicators on Tuesday (8/1) released the results of a recent survey related to the electability of presidential and vice-presidential candidates (presidential and vice-presidential candidates). The conclusion from the Indicator survey is the electability number of the pairs of Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and Ma’ruf Amin who are not yet safe and the opportunity for couples Prabowo Subianto and Sandiaga Uno.
The survey results showed that the presidential candidate vice presidential candidate number 01 Jokowi-Ma’ruf won electability 54.9 percent or 20.1 percent superior compared to the presidential candidate number 02 Prabowo-Sandi who had electability of 34.8 percent. Jokowi-Ma’ruf will win the presidential election if the current presidential election is held.
The Executive Director of Indonesian Political Indicator, Buhanuddin Muhtadi stated, Jokowi-Ma’ruf’s presidential and vice-presidential partners should not be satisfied, because the electability rate of 54.9 percent is not safe, if the presidential election will be held on April 17 2019. "Swing voters are voters those who can still change their choices are still high, reaching 25 percent, Burhanuddin said on Tuesday.
Burhanuddin stressed that the electability of the two presidential and vice presidential candidates could still change because the implementation of the presidential election was still around three months away. The electability of Jokowi and Prabowo in December 2018, according to him, experienced a slight increase compared to the survey in October 2018. Meanwhile, voters who had not determined the choice of undecided voters tended to decline.
The large number of undecided voters, 9.2 percent, according to Burhan, also made the Jokowi-Ma’ruf couple still not safe. So, he said, the Prabowo-Sandi pair still had the chance to win the 2019 Presidential Election.
"There is still a chance for Prabowo-Sandi’s presidential and vice presidential candidate to win the 2019 election," said Burhanuddin.
The survey was conducted by Indonesian Political Indicators on as many as 1,220 respondents aged 17 years and over with random samples in 34 provinces in Indonesia, from 6-16 December 2019. The survey method used was face-to-face interviews by trained interviewers. Meanwhile, the margin of error averaged plus minus 2.9 percent with a confidence level of 95 percent. rk
