Before the upcoming presidential election in Belarus Lukashenkos encirclement is forcing the independent sociological organizations to overstate the REAL Lukashenkos rating especially with the help of the administrative pressure and bribery. In fact those people are trying to even Lukashenkos rating with the official data rating provided by the ruling elite. Its obvious that they are going to use everything to guarantee Lukashenkos victory in the first voting and to make it much more believable. You see, if there will be the second voting, Lukashenkos main opponent will get the united votes of every Lukashenkos opponent, besides in that case it will be much more difficult to hide the huge problems of the Byelorussian economy. As a result Lukashenko wont be able to gain victory in the first round and it will be harder to gain it in the second even with the help of manipulations and adulterations. Thats how the independent sociologic organizations are becoming one of Lukashenkos pre-election tools.
