More online polls reject RH bill (updated) May 21, 2011

Posted by Maddog in Uncategorized.

After the landslide pro-life victory in ABS-CBN’s Harapan online/SMS polls, a few more similar public surveys have been put up. The same pro-life trend seems to be evident on these too.

The Philippine Star (a publication partly owned by the Belmontes, related to the very pro-RH House Speaker Belmonte) has been running an online poll at: http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=687349&publicationSubCategoryId=522.

I’ve taken some screenshots of the results. The first was on May 19, at 10:28PM. Here are the results:

I took another look at the poll on May 21, 1:54PM. The number of “votes” had doubled by then. Here’s the screenshot:

The fight is still close, but a clear trend has emerged: most participants in the survey — a lead by 14 percentage points — reject the RH bill.

Another, much smaller, poll can be found at Pinoysurvey.com (http://pinoysurvey.com/2011/05/rh-bill-sa-pilipinas/). I took a screenshot of the results on May 19, at 10:27PM. Here is how it was back then:

Pinoysurvey results as of 2011-05-19 (22:37)

On May 21, at 1:55PM, the number of “votes” had more than doubled. The results were as follows:

Pinoysurvey results as of 2011-05-21 (13:55)

Looks like it’s another pro-life victory here too. Four out of five participants are against the RH bill.

So, where’s the much-ballyhooed pro-RH majority now? Can’t they even get enough people to dominate these polls? One would think that at least on the well-publicized survey by Philippine Star, the supporters of the RH bill would at least get a small lead (if they actually were a majority), but they can’t even manage that!

Granted, these polls aren’t very scientific, but they do give an indication of the public mood in those niche audiences. It would seem that any claim of a pro-RH “majority” is not as well-founded or across the board as some propagandists suggest.

Update (June 2011):

For those interested in following these polls, here is an update.

As of June 20, 10:41PM:

As of June 20, 10:47PM

Looks like a very clear and consistent pro-life trend here. Let’s hope our politicians listen to the people.
