<Anchor> In the

wake of the Lunar New Year holiday, we conducted a poll on various issues.

Today (11th), I will tell you the contents related to the by-election of the mayor of Seoul you just saw.

In the pan-passport, former Minister Park Young-seon and the pan-neighborhood representative Ahn Cheol-soo were the most suitable candidates. When the two fight virtually, the results were found to be tight.

This is reporter Kim Soo-young.


I asked who I thought was the best candidate for the mayor of Seoul.

Former Minister Park Young-seon (30%), Woo Sang-ho (Democratic Party) 9.8%, Kim Jin-ae (Open Democratic Party) 2.1%.

How about in pan-optics?

Ahn Chul-soo, former Congressman Na Gyeong-won, 15.5%, former Mayor Oh Se-hoon 11.8%, and former lawmaker Tae-seop Geum 4.3%.

Among the bilateral confrontations between pan-passport and pan-opposition candidates on the premise of unification, Park Young-seon and Ahn Cheol-soo, each of the top candidates, were within the margin of error at 40.6% vs. 43.5%.

By age group, people in their 40s preferred Park Young-sun, and those under 29 and over 60 preferred Ahn Chul-soo.

The fact that the Democratic Party ranks first in Seoul's party support rating is favorable for Park, and that opposition votes are more concentrated than passports when united is a favorable condition for Ahn.

In the case of unification of opposition powers as candidates for the people's power, Park took the lead in the virtual confrontation between the opposition parties, with Park Young-sun vs. Na Gyeong-won 43.7% vs. 33.7%, Park Young-sun vs. Oh Se-hun 45.1% vs. 33%.

What if the single candidate for pan-passport was Sang-ho right of the Democratic Party?

It was difficult to determine the superiority and inferiority with candidates Na Gyeong-won and Oh Se-hoon.

On the other hand, in the virtual matchup of Sang-ho Ahn vs. Chul-Soo Ahn, candidate Ahn's superiority stood out at 33% vs. 46.9%.

The criteria for selecting candidates for the mayor of Seoul were 28.5% for real estate measures, 25.9% for candidate morality, and 19.4% for local economy activation.

Those in their 30s and younger took real estate measures, and those aged 60 and older put the morality of their candidates ahead.

This survey was commissioned by SBS to Ipsos, a polling agency, and from the 6th to the 9th, 800 voters in Seoul were responded through a wired/wireless telephone interview, and the sample error was ±3.5%p with a 95% confidence level.
