JAKARTA - The survey results released by the Indometer survey agency show that the electability level of Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto continues to compete with the Governor of Central Java, Ganjar Pranowo.
"In the last 6 months, Prabowo Subianto and Ganjar Pranowo have competed fiercely at the peak of the electability of presidential candidates," Indometer Executive Director Leonard SB said in a written statement received in Jakarta, Antara, Sunday, May 15.
Indometer survey findings, Prabowo won 22.5 percent electability, slightly adrift of Ganjar's 22.1 percent. In third place, the name of the Governor of DKI Jakarta, Anies Baswedan, earned electability of 12.8 percent.
"Prabowo and Ganjar are still competing closely in the presidential candidate market, while Anies is chasing after him," said Leonard.
In addition to the three names, Indometer also displays the electability of other names, namely Ridwan Kamil 8.6 percent, and Sandiaga Uno 5.3 percent.
If you look at the trend since July 2020, Ganjar Pranowo's electability tends to increase, even reaching 20 percent in September 2021. Meanwhile, Prabowo has only started moving up and has again outperformed Ganjar since December 2021.
Previously, he said, Prabowo enjoyed high electability as a result of participating in the presidential election twice. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic, Ganjar has emerged as a potential challenger.
However, he continued, Ganjar still received obstacles from his own internal party, which was more inclined to favor Puan Maharani. Puan is also predicted to run as a pair with Prabowo, supported by the PDI-P and Gerindra coalition.
"Ganjar must start looking for support from other parties to convert electability into a ticket for the presidential election," he said.
More fully, Indometer also displays the electability of other names that are still circulating in the presidential candidate exchange, namely Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono 4.5 percent, Erick Thohir 4.0 percent, Khofifah Indar Parawansa 3.1 percent, and Tri Rismaharini 2.3 percent.
Next, Puan Maharani 1.7 percent, followed by Andika Perkasa 1.2 percent, Airlangga Hartarto 1.1 percent, and Mahfud MD 1.0 percent.
The Indometer survey was conducted from 20 to 27 April 2022 on 1,200 respondents in all provinces and was selected at random by multistage random sampling.
Interviews were conducted face-to-face by implementing the COVID-19 health protocol. The margin of error for the survey is around 2.98 percent with 95 percent confidence.
