• Marcos zooms past closest rival in 2 surveys


    Vice presidential aspirant Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has surged in two separate surveys, taking the solo lead going into the final month of the 45-day campaign.

    The Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC)-dzRH Third Wave Survey Result on April 2, 2016 showed Marcos surging to 29.8 percent, edging out his closest rival Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero, who garnered 22.6 percent.

    In third place was Sen. Allan Peter Cayetano at 18.4 percent, followed by Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo who got 17.8 percent.

    Senators Antonio Trillanes 4th and Gregorio Honasan garnered 5.5 percent and 4.3 percent, respectively.

    The survey used face-to-face interview with 7,490 respondents from randomly selected barangay (villages) in various provinces, harnessing the strength of the largest radio network in Asia.

    MBC has 175 stations under dzRH, Love Radio, Yes FM, Aksyon Radio, Hot FM and Radio Natin.

    It also operates dzRH News Television.

    Marcos also took the lead in the latest Pulso ng Pilipino survey.

    The non-commissioned survey conducted from March 16 to 22, 2016 by the Issues and Advocacy Center showed Marcos getting 27 percent of the “votes,” three percent higher than Escudero, who got 24 percent.

    In the same poll, Robredo got 21 percent, Cayetano, 14 percent, Trillanes, seven percent and Honasan, five percent.

    Marcos also led the rest of his rivals for A/B social classes with 27 percent, and 24, 23, and 24 percentage points for classes C, D, and E, respectively.

    Ed Malay, director of the Center, said the survey showed the so-called millennials seemingly gravitating toward Marcos, whose campaign platform is anchored on unity and progress.

    Marcos maintained that the rise in his ratings was a product of the people’s acceptance of his message for national unity.

    “But we should not stop there. We will continue to bring the message to as many people as possible and give them hope and confidence that things will be better if we have unity,” he said.

      I am praying for BBM win! May the Lord help us to have another great leader!

    4. The Liberal Party of this noytard government is the greatest thief of the Philippine History..Wala man silang nagawa para sa mamayang Filipino..Mga buwaya..
      No more Aquinos in any government position, dahil malas sila sa ating bansa…

    5. ito ang tunay na survey na hindi binabayaran ng mga politiko hindi kagaya ng SWS at Pulse Asia

    6. It’s very clear to everyone who leads in the 2nd Top Position in the Land for 2016 Elections.. The respondents are 7,490 all over the Philippines.. not like sws and other paid surveys 1,400 to 1,800 only. Please share this good news to everyone.. salamat po DZRH.

    7. DZRH being the oldest radio station in the Philippines shall carry the challenge to ferret the true sentiments and voice of the people thru its nationwide network. We are proud to have one.- DZRH

    8. These latest surveys appear to be the real ones. The earlier others which showed Marcos and Escudero statistically tied were questionable. How can one of four from Bicol tie with the only one from the Ilocos? It does not sound right.

    9. Yes! This is the real survey,face to face method with sampling and data presented at transparent.

    10. by the aquino’s (cory and noykapon) mediocrity,
      they have just endorsed bbm for the vp post.

      Great news for all filipinos! BBM will be an asset to the gov’t. The only bad news so far is that Grace Poe is not yet disqualified.

    12. Miss na miss na ng mga Pilipino ang mga Marcos. Marami kasing magandang ginawa sa ating bayan!!!

      • Oh, really? I think so. That’s why 2 Aquinos are elected because Filipinos keep repeating the same mistake. :)

      • that’s because our elites/oligarchs make and wants us that way…our politicians/leaders who are also the elites and oligarchs of this country never in their wildest dream wanted to uplift the economic life of the filipinos so that they will continue to be an uto-uto..

        God Bless you Brod. I Bless you with Pure Light Energy to enlighten your mind. Our experience is not enough to speak of the whole Filipino people. Look around with open heart what this country needs… Unity, reconciliation towards progress by moving on to new chapters of our lives as a nation. We can not go on just blaming each other. Let us correct each other and let God judge whoever SInned in His NAme.

    13. Proverbs 28:1-5New King James Version (NKJV)

      28 The wicked flee when no one pursues,
      But the righteous are bold as a lion.
      2 Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes;
      But by a man of understanding and knowledge
      Right will be prolonged.
      3 A poor man who oppresses the poor
      Is like a driving rain which leaves no food.
      4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
      But such as keep the law contend with them.
      5 Evil men do not understand justice,
      But those who seek the Lord understand all.
