Presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos
MANILA — The strong showing of Presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. in the latest SWS Presidential survey proves that the people trust him and his push for a unifying leadership.
According to the latest Presidential preference survey released by polling firm SWS, Marcos led all the Presidential aspirants. The survey was conducted from October 20 to 23 and commissioned by Stratbase ADR Institute Inc.
The Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer’s chief of staff, Atty. Vic Rodriguez said Marcos remains humble and focused on creating plans to help the Filipino people emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Unifying presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos is humbled by the very encouraging results showing him lead survey after survey but has remained focused on the delicate task ahead of how to navigate and get us all out of this crisis brought by the pandemic when given the chance to lead the country in 2022,” said Rodriguez.
Atty. Rodriguez also thanked our Kababayans for their continued trust and called on each Filipino to reject gutter politics and end the culture of character assassination.
“Let us instead elevate the level of political discourse and talk about nation-building,” said Rodriguez.
“It is clear to Bongbong Marcos that this election is all about the future, the future of every Filipino and the future of our nation,” he added.
The SWS survey showed that Marcos got 47 percent of the votes, while Vice-President Leni Robredo was far behind him with 18 percent. Manila Mayor Isko Moreno came in third with 13 percent. Senator Manny Pacquiao was fourth with 9 percent. The tie for fifth place is Senators Panfilo Lacson and Bato Dela Rosa with 5 percent.
The report did not mention how many respondents were in the survey and did not include the name of another presidential candidate, Labor leader Leody de Guzman.
It also showed that 3 percent are still ‘undecided’ who to vote for as President in the upcoming polls.
Meanwhile, Senate President Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto III got 44 percent for the vice-presidential race. Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte followed him with 25 percent, both in third place are Senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan and Dr. Willie Ong both with 13 percent followed by Buhay Partylist Rep. Jose’ Lito’ Atienza with 3 percent.
Two percent are still ‘undecided’ who to vote for as Vice-President.
SWS did the survey more than three weeks before Sara Duterte formally submitted her candidacy as vice president, and Senator Bong Go filed his candidacy as President last Saturday. (ai/mtvn)
