An interesting theory has been floating around in the social media claiming that Bongbong Marcos is a victim of “Dagdag Bawas 3.0!”
In a Facebook post by David Yap of Ateneo de Manila, the professor uses mathematics to demonstrate the alleged election fraud against Bongbong Marcos.
Professor Yap wrote that for every 40K votes that goes to Bongbong Marcos, 1% of the votes goes to Leni Robredo.
The same trick was implemented to steal the votes from Chiz Escudero, benefitting the candidate, you know who!
In fairness to the candidate who is benefitting from “Dagdag Bawas 3.0” Professor Yap did not point Robredo as the perpetrator of the high-tech election cheating.
Professor Yap wrote that the cheating occurred around 3AM when everybody is sound asleep.
He added that they cannot use the tool on Mayor Duterte because his lead is just too big to close the gap without raising suspicion.
“They used Leni Robredo as the tool,” Professor Yap adds.
Professor Antonio Contreras from La Salle who teaches Political Science agrees with Professor Yap’s theory that Bongbong Marcos is a victim of sophisticated election cheating, by whom? That remains to be seen.
A netizen made another graphical equation to explain how Marcos lost his votes.
Professor Yap posted it on his timeline and wrote:
Lookie! Someone made a regression equation and put in a best fit line over the decrease in BBM’s lead – almost perfectly linear. Just look at that R-squared value.
My mental math was close – this indicates that it was 44k per 1% (I estimated sir to be 40k per 1%)
Okay for people looking for proof of some hanky panky, read this.
My mathematical side tells me that when increases and decreases in votes that are supposed to be coming randomly from diverse areas in the country with different political preferences become a straight line, then reaches a point where it is reversed, that something might have been programmed.
It is suspicious that transmissions from random points of a highly diverse political landscape behaved like a straight line with an almost perfect fit, as shown by the extremely high R-squares.
What is even highly suspicious is that the straight line is not even of actual votes, but of margins of votes between two candidates.

What are your thoughts on the cheating theory?
