The Preval team, in conjunction with some key people in MINUSTAH, including Edmund Mulet, have been promoting a series of polls that purport to present the Haitian people’s preference in the November presidential ballot. These are false polls, created on someone’s computer without asking anyone any questions.
In other words, there is no poll at all.
Mulet/MINUSTAH have preconceived answers, before questions are asked. If the reply does not meet with the preconceived outcome, it is discarded. For example, a MINUSTAH leader recently started to write a study on the election, and possible problems. This person would not accept the fact that the only real element geared to create problems of insecurity, for the electoral process, was Preval. Ignore the Preval danger and you ignore reality.
Here is today’s reality. This is a poll carried out after Jean-Henry Ceant’s rally in Tabarre where some 50,000 people swarmed the area. This might give a slightly higher popularity figure for Ceant than would be expected three days before the event. Having stated this, here are the results in-so-far as the leading 6 candidates are concerned. The others make little or no impact on the polling process.
The accuracy is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Jean-Henry Ceant 42%
Michele Martelly 19%
Charles Baker 6%
Mirlande Manigat 5%
Jude Celestin 2%
Jacques Alexis 2%
The majority of the balance – 24% – fall into the category of undecided, or couldn’t care less.
