The latest polling conducted in June 2012 shows slight increase in support for Prabowo Subianto, now at 21% (up 1 point). With media visibility down from the high of April, support for Aburizal Bakrie slipped again to 17% (down 1 point).
The poll continues to show that Prabowo Subianto and Aburizal Bakrie are the two strongest candidates. The gap between the two is widening (now at 4 points) but they remain neck-to-neck in competition, as this is still within the margin of error in polling surveys. With names like Megawati Sukarnoputri and Jusuf Kalla unlikely to run at the 2014 election, the results show Prabowo and Aburizal are the only 2 strong candidates among the 10 most likely to run for president. The other 8 candidates trail significantly behind.
Dahlan Iskan registered a slight dip in popularity and is now at 7%, slipping 1 point from May. He still follows closely behind the Sultan, who is steady at 9%.
When taking into consideration a second or more choices, Prabowo continues to attract a larger number of supporters, growing to 34%. Aburizal climbs to 28% with secondary support, still at No. 2. These numbers remain steady when compared with May results.
With regard to electing representatives for the DPR, Partai Demokrat climbed up again in June 2012, now at 22%. Golkar is steady at 14% while PDIP slipped to 11%.
Gerindra is still holding on to 4th position at 8%, virtually unchanged from May. PKS is growing and is now closing in on Gerindra in 5th position with 7% of voting intentions. PKB regained some lost ground and is now same as PKS. NasDem also grew slightly to 3%.
