[아시아경제 권서영 기자] The People’s Power has pointed out the ambiguity of the question in relation to the results of a poll that showed that many of the party’s supporters hoped for the replacement of the presidential candidate.

On the 31st, Lee Yang-soo, senior spokesperson for the People’s Power, mentioned a technical error related to the report saying that ‘a significant number of supporters of the People’s Power want to change the candidate’ in a press statement. Senior Spokesperson Lee said, “There were vague and inaccurate parts of the polls. Because of this, the wrong analysis came out as if the supporters of the People’s Power wanted the replacement of presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol.”

Chief Spokesperson Lee explained that the question about the need for replacement of candidates in the poll was ‘What do you think about the need for replacement of the current presidential candidate of the ruling and opposition parties?’ “It was not a question of replacement for a specific candidate,” he insisted. “82% of the People’s Power supporters said that they would continue to support Yoon,” he said.

Earlier, on the 28th of last month, Hangil Research announced the results of a poll conducted on 1,000 voters across the country at the request of Ajou Economic Daily. In this opinion poll, 56.6% of the respondents answered in the affirmative to the question of ‘the ruling and opposition presidential candidates should be replaced’, and 70.4% of the supporters of the People’s Power said that the candidate should be replaced. On the other hand, 35.7% of the Democratic Party supporters gave the same answer to the same question. The sampling error of the opinion poll results is ±3.1 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
