CLAIM: Social media user Kim Indar posted a screenshot of a supposed exit poll where more than 3,300 voters supposedly said they picked Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., while his rivals only logged two-digit votes.

This is misleading.

What the posts say

Indar posted on her Twitter that of those who voted in Hong Kong on April 10, there were 3,357 who said they voted for Marcos, while Vice President Leni Robredo had 65, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has 18 and Sen. Manny Pacquiao had 15.

Her first screenshot posted 9:02 p.m., did not indicate a source.

Indar, who has been identified in an Abogado article as a city prosecutor, later tweeted that she merely shared an exit poll and not official results from the Commission on Elections.

What they left out

Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez, in a tweet, explained that “as a general rule, unless a known and reputable survey firm released the exit poll, this is not reliable.”

The Consulate General of the Philippines Hong Kong also said in its Sunday bulletin that 3,285 voters cast their vote on the first day of overseas voting in Hong Kong. Of these, three were rejected due to unnecessary marks on the ballots.

But Indar’s first exit poll tweet showed a total of 3,455 voters interviewed. In her succeeding tweet, the total was 3,434 and 3,225.
