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.
Dr. Wanchai Jungwiboonsatit and Dr. Somkiat Jongjitman announce the survey results.
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.
