Mock Election

Well, the company I work for has around 500 plus employees, customer service types, call center, back end processing. Based in the Philippines, and nearing the national elections, human resource conducted a mock election - a survey of sorts, for the presidential candidates. The results are not surprising, although I still find it hard to believe they still voted for anyone else:

Total of 241 votes (which means about half did not respond at all)

47.3% GMA = Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo
22% Raul Roco
14% Panfilo "Ping" Lacson
13% Brother Eddie Villanueva
2% FPJ = Fernando Poe Jr
1% Eddie Gil (Nuisance Candidate)
2% No Comment (they actually voted to nominate no one.)

Now that doesn't add up to exactly 100%, but there may be rounding errors, we were never given the raw numbers.

Note that everyone that works for this company has a requisite university or college degree. You need one before being considered for employment. These days, I can't imagine why you'd still pick someone who didn't even finish highschool, for the highest post of the land.
