4

Vice President Jejomar Binay, Sen. Grace Poe, administration standard-bearer Manuel ‘Mar’ Roxas 2nd and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo ‘Rody’ Duterte are “statistically tied” for the top spot in the latest presidential preference survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The results were released a day after Pulse Asia revealed its own latest survey, which showed Binay regaining the No. 1 spot (33 percent) with Poe dropping to No. 3 (21 percent). Duterte took the second spot (23 percent).

The Pulse Asia survey was conducted from December 4 to 11.

The SWS surveyed 1,200 registered voters via face-to-face interviews from December 12 to 14.

The pollster took the views of 300 registered voters each in Metro Manila, rest of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Margin of error was set at ±3 percent for national percentages and ±6 percent each for Metro Manila, Balance of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Both Binay and Poe ranked No. 1 (26 percent) across the country with Roxas chosen by 22 percent and Duterte by 20 percent.

Duterte topped the survey among Metro Manila residents conducted last November.
Only 4 percent said they will vote for Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago.

Jose Rizalito “Lito” David got 0.1 percent, Camilo Sabio,0.04 percent and the rest of the presidential aspirants—Eli Pamatong, OFW Family party-list Rep. Roy Señeres and Augusto “Boboy” Syjuco Jr.–got zero.

While Binay and Poe got the highest scores in the survey, SWS said they are statistically tied with Roxas and Duterte for the top spot since the poll had a margin of error of ±3 percent.

In the September SWS survey, Binay, Poe and Roxas were statistically tied with 26 percent, 24 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

In the latest survey, the respondents were asked, “Sa mga sumusunod na pangalan sa listahang ito, sino po ang malamang ninyong iboboto bilang PRESIDENTE ng Pilipinas, kung ang eleksyon ay gaganapin ngayon [Among the names found on this list, who will you probably vote for as PRESIDENT of the Philippines, if elections were held today]?”
Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero topped the vice presidential survey with 30 percent.

Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo are tied in second place with 19 percent.

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano got a rating of 17 percent while Sen. Gregorio Honasan scored 8 percent.

Reactions

Malacañang is unfazed with the survey results.

“Public opinion surveys serve to heighten the citizens’ awareness on the candidates that would hopefully lead to greater interest beyond personalities and into platforms of governance,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a text message.

The Palace, however, said survey results for a particular candidate would go up and down but what they are anticipating is the presidential elections in May next year.

It added that in endorsing Roxas, President Benigno Aquino 3rd only wants to make sure that the gains under his Administration will continue.

Binay’s political spokesman, Rico Quicho, said, “The Vice President has exemplified that hard work and firm commitment to fight poverty will resonate well with the people. From his 24 percent rating in September, the Vice President has improved to 26 percent to claim the top spot in the SWS survey. Vice President Binay sincerely thanks our people for continuing to support and pray for him.”

Poe, meanwhile, said, “I accept with gratitude and humility the latest SWS survey results. I will continue to make the rounds all over the country, reach out to the people on the ground, and make known how the leadership we are offering would make the government genuinely work for them.”

  1. Another lie! 3 polls during the same dates offers dramatic differences. Roxas is hated so much he can’t compete with the other people running. Any survey showing him above 10% is a lie, supported by the corrupt worthless LPs group.

  2. Grace Poe time to yield to rule of law
    Not to Opportunism and Personal Ambition!
    Why is Grace Poe obstinately obsessive to pursue her derailed quest for the Presidency knowing that she is already disqualified by the COMEELEC en banc to run being NOT a natural-born Filipino citizen and lack the residency as required by the Constitution. On top of this, Grace Poe is NOT also qualified and equipped to be President for lack of proper education and experience in government governance and administration being just on mere three years as a junior Senator and 2 years as Head of a minor bureau in movie board. Is Grace Poe suffering from a “delusional” attack of “grandeurism” from power hungry mode and “FPJ syndrome” (movie popularity and pretensions of being a champion of the poor).
    Grace Poe knows her legal predicament of being disqualified yet her stubborn stance equates to self-aggrandizement and egoistic tendencies. Her persistence is not a firm determination to evince her righteous principles but amounts to lack of patriotism and thick-face behaviour. If Poe is honestly sincere in advocating the welfare of the poor, she can do so without holding a government position or President, but can help the poor in her own personal private way either via an FPJ Foundation, if she needs the memory of his adoptive father remembered!
    Overall the behaviour and actions of Grace Poe to continue to run is but a “face-saving” way to exit by claiming the rights of foundling to pursue dreams and the “vox populai” as paramount over the basic law (Constitution). This claim is full of “horse manure” and must be throw away to the dustbin of Philippine political history.
    Grace Poe and her family must go back to America where she can have another American Dream a reality, NOT as a Philippine President as an elusive and impossible dream!
    Bon Voyage Poe!

  4. Si Jejomar Binay ang mentor ng anak nyang si Junjun Binay sa pagnanakaw sa kaban ng Makati. Malakas ang mga ebidensya ng Ombudsman laban kay Junjun Binay kaya tinanggal syang Mayor ng Makati at hindi na sya pwedeng humawak ng anumang pwesto sa gobyerno. Huwag tayong padala sa matamis na dila ni Jejomar Binay dahil kakambal nito ang pagiging masiba nya, ganon din ang mga myembro ng kanyang pamilya.
