• Poe tops Pulse Asia poll by a whisker


    Sen. Grace Poe topped her rivals for the presidency in the latest Pulse Asia survey with a 26 percent rating, with Vice President Jejomar Binay a close second with 25 percent.

    Survey results were released on Friday ahead of the Supreme Court’s pending ruling on a disqualification case against Poe over her citizenship and residency.

    The high tribunal is expected to decide on the case on March 8.

    The senator’s rating dropped by four points from her previous 30 percent rating.

    Poe gained the most support from Class E (28 percent) but she also had significant pull among Class D (25 percent) and Class ABC (25 percent).

    Binay got the biggest chunk of his ratings from Class E with 31 percent.

    He earned 25 percent from Class D but only cornered 14 percent in Class ABC.

    Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Manuel “Mar”Roxas 2nd and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte shared the third spot with 21 percent each.

    Roxas obtained 25 percent from Class ABC, 21 percent from Class D and 19 percent from Class E.

    Duterte collected 25 percent from Class ABC, 21 percent from Class D and 18 percent from Class E.

    Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who seldom joins campaign sorties, settled for a measly three percent.

    In the vice presidential race, Sen. Francis Escudero had a slim lead of three percentage points over Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.–29 percent to 26 percent.

    Roxas’ running mate, Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, remained at third with a 19 percent rating.

    Sen. Alan Cayetano still failed to gain traction with 12 percent, while Sen. Antonio Trillanes 4th and Sen. Gregorio Honasan had a paltry 6 percent and 4 percent, respectively.

    The survey was conducted from February 15 to 20.

    1. This survey clearly shows that the advertisement of Poe and Binay among the poor of the poorest, class D&E, are very effective and they get little from class ABC while Roxas shows an increase among Class A, B, & C voters. The survey was held February 15-20, 2016.
      Last February 29th, Pnoy started his radio and tv campaign Ad for his Daan Matuwid candidates, RORO. Let us see if it will be effective by survey from Feb. 29 to March 5, 2016, if the survey is not sponsored by Malacanang or Pnoy himself.

    2. It’s clear that there are only 2 Candidates that should run for President and that is
      VPBinay and Grace Poe .

      Just focus on this 2 candidates and what they can do best for the country and people.
      Do not pay attention to black propaganda anymore . We should all rise above the mudslinging and be more engage with problems of the country rather than personal .

      Forget LP Mar & BSAquino, THEY were given an opportunity for 6 years and now they have made this country worst , MRT/PDAF/DAP/BBL/ DILG riddled with both their Inept and corruption. Poverty and Smuggling is UP. Do We want More and Same of them ? I DON’T THINK SO !

      Alam kasi ng mga botante kung sino ang nararapat na maging pangulo ng bansa, kailangan na kasi ng pagbabago ngayon, at walang ibang napipisil ang mga botante kundi si senator poe, kasi siya lang sa lahat ng kandidato ang makikita mong may malasakit sa kapwa. hindi niya kailangan manira para lang umangat sa mga survey at mapansin. kaya sa mga kalaban niya tigilan na ang mga dirty tactics ninyo. senator poe kapit lang huwag ka matatakot, basta nandito kami para sayo.
