Attached for your information is a press release from Glevum and our Afghan partners, which presents the findings of two exit polls that we conducted during and after the June 14th election. Our teams conducted 2,206 face-to-face interviews at 51 polling stations in ten provinces on the 14th. At the same time we also conducted 2,749 telephone interviews from June 14th to June 16th, with respondents who confirmed they had voted at the election. The results are as follows:
|Face to Face Exit Poll|
Ashraf Ghani – 53%
Abdullah Abdullah – 47%
|Telephone Exit Poll|
Ashraf Ghani – 54%
Abdullah Abdullah – 46%
These results are in line with our polling last week and suggest a conclusive victory for Ashraf Ghani.. Below is our documented report.
Phi Beta Iota: The press release, a public document, is provided for information. It is consistent with the observations of Robert Steele and Robert Young Pelton and earlier public statements by Andrew Garfield and his company.
Robert Steele: Ghani Wins by 6% or More — 5,000 Mullahs for Ghani, Karzai Frantically Trying to Deal, Abdullah Promising Millions (But Out of Cash), with Pakistan Destabilizing to Stave Off Durand Line Challenge by Afghanistan
Phi Beta Iota: A number of individuals, including reporters, have asked how Steele could possibly have gotten this right in the face of all “evidence” the contrary. First, lies are not evidence. Casting a wide net — listening to everyone, not just the canned PAOs, is important. Second, integrity is a force more powerful. The truth at any cost lowers all other costs.
