Survey By Foreign Embassies Gives Bio the First Round: Bio 48% Koroma 46%, No Christmas for Salone

By Joseph Salifu Kamara

October 30, 2012

A very cogent leaked survey report in possession of one of the foriegn embassies in Freetown indicates a deadlock in Sierra Leone’s presidential race in November. Who so ever wins the polls will do so in a nail bighting finish in the second round late in the colds of December, the research declares. The survey administered among 15,400 respondents nationwide concludes that none of the political parties will command up to 50 percent of the vote in the first round. The deadlock in November will undoubtedly instruct Madam Thorpe, the NEC Chair, to conduct a runoff Presidential election at Christmas. Authoritatively, there is now compelling evidence that if presidential elections were held on the 15th October (at the time of the research) the opposition leader will take a slight edge over the ruling party by approximately 50,000 votes – that is about 2 percent of the overall registrants at an 85% average voter turnout. click here to read full article

The use of previous polling data has been the most prominent and reliable component used to forecast election results for decades now. From 1936 to about 2000, the United States and later followed by other developed nations used previous polling data as a standard to predict election outcome by simply making use of raw polling results that has been officially displayed. There is also a long history of econometric models that forecast elections with fundamental data. Click here to read full article

Instead of being remembered for the change which ordinary people thought President Koroma could have made on their lives for the past five years, the people will better remember the President for all the flattery names and titles his apologists cum praise singers always shower on him - "transformational leader"; "best President in Africa"; "doctor without religious boundaries"; "the fibre optic president"; "Earnest Ernest Koroma" and at some point the apologists even foolishly tried to invoke the wrath of God by Comparing President Koroma to Jesus Christ.

Landslide Victory in the Making: SLPP Presidential Candidate, Rtd. Brig. General Julius Maada Bio and the SLPP as a political lead in Awoko's Polls by 55% and 53% respectively

About a week ago, the independent Awoko online news website conducted a poll in which respondents had to select their choice of political party they would vote for among seven political parties if elections were held on that day. With over 700 respondents, the SLPP was selected by 53% of them while APC scored 39%. A second poll is being conducted as we publiish this article in which respondents have been asked who their choice for president is among four candidates including President Koroma, Brig. Maada Bio, Mr. Mohamed Bangura and Mr. Eldred Collins. Again, 55% of the 401 respondents so far have selected Brig. Maada Bio as their choice while President Koroma takes second place with 41%.  Contrary to the statistically questionable and unverifiable survey reports published by the same news outlet indicating a favorable approval rating for President Koroma, Bio and the SLPP stands evidently stands to be more popular than the APC and President Koroma as choice of political party and president respectively, come November 17, 2012.
