Both the study and the organisation behind it seem quite sketchy to me (the study definitely is), but let’s accept the outcome : 27 % of people using a password manager would not be bad at all. If true.

Actually, I’d be surprised if the figure were that high.

Edit: Your article is in another league entirely.
