The AFC ad for its October 21st fundraiser
in Canada with the lie highlighted
In fliers being circulated by the Alliance for Change (AFC) the party was found to be deliberately misrepresenting its position when it claimed that "most polls indicate that the AFC party could form the next government in Guyana". This is an outright lie.
The CARES poll commissioned by the AFC in 2010 found as follows:
“Over the years, CADRES has developed a method of predicting the way that these voters will behave that relies on historical trends and this has been proven to be a most reliable indicator. This approach projects PPP/Civic support at 38%; PNCR support at 31% and AFC support at 26%,”
The NACTA poll released in July of this year found as follows:
"An opinion survey conducted by NACTA in early July has shown the incumbent PPP taking an early lead in popular support over the opposition parties in elections due by December. The PPP (46%) is way ahead of the newly formed APNU (25%), AFC (5%), and other minor parties in terms of support. The PPP’s presidential candidate, General Secretary Donald Ramotar, is more favoured over APNU’s David Granger who does not enjoy wide appeal among traditional PNC supporters, and AFC’s Khemraj Ramjattan who is struggling to hold on to the support the party won in 2006."
SO WHICH POLL IS THE AFC REFERRING TO? WAS IT THE FICTITIOUS POLL CONDUCTED BY DICK MORRIS?
