We are starting up the referendum on the presidential runoff vote.
Volodymyr Zelensky and Petro Poroshenko. What do you feel about them? What are you afraid of? What are you hoping for?
Take part in the voting - let's find out the attitude Ukrainians have to the country’s next president.
Savik Shuster: "How much hope do you need to hold out for choosing the right President and Supreme Commander-in-Chief?
How much fear do you need to endure, not to burn your fingers again?
How many humiliations are you willing to get through in order to protect your right to make choices? I began to study the emotions of Ukrainians four years ago, within the framework of the “Shuster live” program. My studies revealed that three out of four residents should live in hope for a better tomorrow, so that a sense of stability can prevail in the country.
In 2019, during the presidential election campaign, our Foundation (Open Mind Foundation) tasked itself with understanding how emotions turn into votes. The first vote has taken place. I believe that 40% of the hope Zelensky inspires, and 30% of the hope and pride Poroshenko causes, will prove to be insufficient for winning the second round of elections. At least half of Ukrainians should hold out hope in relation to one of the candidates; otherwise it will be the choice of the ‘lesser evil’."
