Jun 9 2024 Share

Taking to social media, statistician Vincent Marmara explained that this year’s indecisive voters remained very high and posed a challenge to make accurate predictions for the election.

Marmara explained that whereas indecisive voters usually start to decrease during a campaign, this year’s indecisive voters remained at around 15 to 18%.

The statistician also explained that whereas the indecisive voters who said they voted for the PN went to vote, many who said they were indecisive and voted for the PL in 2022 either did not go to vote or voted for third parties or independents.
