The disclosure was made known in a statement made available by the Political Communication Advisor for the firm, Mr. Mikka Erem.
He stated that it was projected that PDP’s candidature will boost of 58.1% votes bettering 25.5% for APC’s candidate, adding that 16.4% of the respondents were undecided.
Mr Erem continued that the survey for voters that would likely participate in Edo state election was conducted September 10 to 12, adding that +/-9% represents error that was likely committed and 95% success rate was well assured.
He further stated that 62 males and 48 females made up the randomly selected samples, saying also that 88% respondents participated and voted in last conducted Edo gubernatorial election.
