TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Incumbent presidential and vice presidential hopeful Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and Ma’aruf Amin is known to have garnered support from religious and cultural voters affiliated to Nahdalatul Ulama (NU).

Meanwhile, the poll conducted by Y-Publica also revealed that Jokowi’s rival Prabowo Subianto and Sandiaga Uno are more backed by Muhammadiyah voters. In the eyes of NU voters, the poll released on September 3 deemed Jokowi-Ma’aruf superior with 59 percent and Prabowo-Sandiaga with 23.3 percent.

“The pair’s superiority cannot be separated from Ma’aruf’s status as an NU member,” said Executive Director y-Publica Rudi Hartono in Jakarta on Monday, September 3.

Meanwhile, Prabowo was a step ahead of Jokowi in the Muhammadiyah voters with Prabowo generating 42.7 percent support while Jokowi was just behind with 39.9 percent.
The Prabowo-Sandiaga pair are also more popular among members of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) scoring 67.5 percent.

However, outside of the NU, Muhammadiyah, and FPI demographics, more respondents reacted positively for the Jokowi-Ma’aruf pair and scored 52.7 percent compared to their counterpart that only garnered 27.9 percent support of the 1,200 random respondents that represented 120 areas from 34 provinces across Indonesia.
