TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A researcher at the Indonesian Survey Circle (LSI) Denny JA, Ardian Sopa, has invited the campaign team of Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno to respond to the pollster's study and conduct a direct comparison after the team cast doubt on LSI's poll results.
“This is interesting, contesting poll results, data against data,” said Ardian today, who maintained that the comparison must be published to let the public determine which poll was more credible.
“Let the public be the final judge,” he said.
However, Ardian reminded the Prabowo camp also needed to conduct an electability survey adhering to the same principles to avoid disparities in results.
Previous reports said a spokesman of the Prabowo-Sandiaga Uno campaign team, Ferry Juliantono, said the team would rather conduct an evaluation into the pollster rather than evaluate its campaign strategies.
The Prabowo Subianto camp has voiced its doubt against LSI Denny JA’s poll results, which found the Prabowo-Sandiaga Uno pair was lagging behind rival Jokowi-Ma'ruf Amin ticket, saying they often contradicted other pollsters'.
