Presidential bidder Dick Gordon sued the Social Weather Stations (SWS) and Pulse Asia for their inaccurate and biased surveys. In his claim, Gordon said that pollsters of these two giants in the survey industry are limiting their surveys only to Aquino, Villar, and Estrada. They are not also being transparent who is or are behind these surveys. He asks the court to stop publishing these surveys this close in the election period and asks for Php 650,000. He says this money will go to Red Cross.

I have the reason to believe that Senator Dick Gordon has good intentions on this. The truth is, surveys are influencing the voting public. Besides, it is too near the Election Day to be releasing surveys as to who’s who the ‘people’ wants. I remembered the early surveys where they also divulged Manny Villar commissioning them. Why the sudden secrecy? Who commissions who or which and who gets favored with what?
