Dr. Wanchai Jungwiboonsatit and Dr. Somkiat
Jongjitman announce the survey results.
The Pheu Thai Party has a narrow lead in Chonburi
over the Democratic and Chonburi Power parties, but nearly half the
electorate remains undecided, according to the latest opinion poll from
King’s Crown College.
Political science professors from the Chonburi school
announced results of their survey of 1,534 provincial voters June 17 at
the Diana Garden Resort. Pheu Thai was the favorite of 18.7 percent of
residents with Chonburi Power coming in second with 16.6 percent and the
Democratic Party at 15.2 percent. All other party candidates averaged
less than 1 percent. The June 12 poll has a 5 percent margin of error.
Survey coordinator Wanchai Jungwiboonsatit said what
was most significant is that while 90 percent of those surveyed said
they planned to vote, 45.6 percent said they were still undecided on
which party to choose.
The red-shirt aligned Pheu Thai was the top choice of voters in
Phanatnikom, Nongyai and the fishermen-dominated Koh Chan and Koh Si
Chang. Palang Chon, headed by the powerful Kunplome clan, unsurprisingly
was strongest in Banglamung, Sriracha, Sattahip and Panthong. The ruling
Democrats found their strongest base in the central Chonburi districts
of Muang, Banbung and Borthong.
