    TEMPO.CO, JakartaPrabowo Subianto’s presidential campaign team (BPN) director Sugiono is not interested to respond to doubts voiced by several groups on the team’s internal electability poll, mainly from the Jokowi camp (TKN).

    “It’s their problem if they doubt it. Those were the numbers that we discovered,” said Sugiono in South Jakarta on Wednesday, April 10. He argues that the survey results only need to be accountable for the BPN team.

    “That is the assessment that we conducted. Our user is the BPN, not them,” said Sugiono.

    As previously mentioned, the BPN team announced its internal survey report on the electability of Prabowo – Sandiaga Uno. The report claims the opposition scored a spiking 62 percent electability while incumbent Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin only scored 38 percent electability.

    The internal survey gathered the answers from 1,440 respondents from varying backgrounds across 34 provinces in Indonesia.

    Sugiono did not reveal the survey’s margin of error despite claiming it to be similar to other pollsters. Interestingly, this poll did not reveal any swing voters or undecided voters.
