Public opinion polling firm Pulse Asia has disowned circulating results of a fake election survey that it allegedly conducted from March 10 to 15, 2022.

“We have received numerous queries about alleged Pulse Asia survey results being circulated in social media and through instant messaging applications. These survey results are not ours,” Pulse Asia said in a statement on March 29, 2022.

“Our organization releases our survey results ONLY through the Pulse Asia Research website,” it added.

The original Twitter post containing the fake survey results has been taken down. It alleged that Vice President Leni Robredo had closed the gap between her and frontrunner Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Before it was taken down, some users had questioned the validity of the post, with former presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda noting that the field work cited in the results “seems a bit early.”
