    Leni Robredo’s possible electoral scheme revealed

    Amidst the ongoing electoral protest filed by former Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos before the Supreme Court (SC)regarding his untoward defeat against his 2016 vice presidential contender Leni Robredo, Mindanation - a local blog that tackles socio political issues, recently published a speculative article wary of VP Leni Robredo’s questioned victory.



    In the said article written by Carlos Munda, he revealed that they conducted an online poll for president and vice presidential posts last year. Affixed to the post, were some screenshots of IP addresses used by the poll-voters during the conduct of the survey.

    “As you can see from the images, those who chose Duterte had unique IP addresses, while those who choose Leni Robredo had the same number,” Munda explained.

    Furthering his post, Carlos Munda expressed his curiosity over the similar IP addresses whose votes count for Robredo but had no definite presidential pick.

    “What is even more curious is that the same IP Address that repeatedly voted for Robredo, actually had two different picks for her running mate – Roxas (of course) and Grace Poe,” the writer stated.

    Given this anomalous poll intervention, Munda speculated that someone, basically from Leni Robredo’s party, is sabotaging their previous electoral survey for a blatant objective of putting Leni Robredo on top among its other vice presidential contenders.

    “This would indicate that (1) who ever was gaming our survey didn’t really care who was paired with Robredo, so long as she went up in the ratings, (2) the most likely culprit is someone from the Robredo camp. Which of course makes us wonder if this is also how they won,” Carlos Munda speculated.



    Meanwhile, the said article published by Mindanation, came about after ABS-CBN continuously report about the “use of trolls and bots by certain politicians during and after the election campaign” with Duterte and his team as subjects of such allegations.

    “But based on Mindavote’s own observation, the idea that Duterte had an army of paid ‘online warriors’ to defend him and attack his opponents came about simply because the other campaign teams needed a reason to explain his phenomenal rise on social media. And since this is what they themselves were doing, they just assumed that it was also the same for Duterte,” Munda wrote defensively returning the allegations back to Robredo’s camp.
