Understanding that the so-called sociological institutes and their heads have wasted public confidence, the government orders polls by foreign companies.
For instance, the European Friends of Armenia, the Gallup conducted polls, now the Russian Public Opinion Study Center does.
According to these polls, the Republicans and the PAP lead the race, the other political forces are far behind, and it will be tough for them to win 5%.
Despite the foreign “brands”, a very small part of the Armenian society believes that these polls reflect the real moods.
And perhaps the projections of public opinion are not so objective. On top of all, the international sociology is also detested in Armenia.
But there is something positive about it.
When both the so-called internal and external sociologies studying the Armenian elections are totally defamed, this component may finally shift from the election process to other spheres of life.
Sociology is the companion of the election process of any civilized country. However, to put it honestly, it is hard to describe the Armenian election process as civilized. So, objective or subjective, sociology must quit elections and wait for better times for elections.
In that case, there will be no need to order sociological tales or sociological tours, enriching some companies abroad.
And the society will respect sociology which does not interfere with pre-election intrigues, and this science may take the track for purification and become a genuine hands-on tool for the society.
