Joe III warns vs surveys: Mind conditioning lang yan!


Iloilo City Mayor Jose “Joe” Espinosa said the recent survey showing Rep. Jerry Treñas as the candidate to beat for mayor in the May 13 elections is unreliable.

Only placing second in the February 15 to 17, 2019 Random Access Consultants, Inc. survey, Espinosa added the public should know who commissioned and paid for the conduct of the poll.

“It is not a reliable survey because someone paid for it,” according to the politiko.

Pre-election surveys are paid and used as tools by politicians, said Espinosa, a reelectionist, in The Daily Guardian report.

The Ilonggo official, who assumed full mayoral powers after the dismissal of former Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog on corruption allegations, claimed that surveys only pre-condition the mind of the voters.
