MANILA — Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer Ferdinand ‘Bongbong” Marcos , Jr. continues to lord it over his rivals in the presidential derby as shown by the latest face-to-face survey conducted by Radio Mindanao Network (RMN)-APCORE.
In the survey that was conducted from November 23 to 29 on 2,400 respondents, at least 55% said their preferred choice was Marcos, while Leni Robredo and Manila Mayor Francisco Domagoso Moreno were tied at a distant 2nd and 3rd place with identical 13% votes.
Sen. Christopher ‘Bong’ Go, who dropped out from the race last week, received 8% votes, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, 4%, and Sen. Panfilo Lacson, 3%.
Lagging behind at seventh and eighth spots, respectively, were Ernesto Abella and Leodegario De Guzman, with a similar 0.17% votes, followed by Norberto Gonzales in ninth place with 0.08 %.
Former general Antonio Parlade did not receive any votes, while at least 4% are still undecided.
The latest RMN survey results reinforce the previous polls by other firms, SWS, Publicus, Kalye Survey, and DZRH, among others, showing Marcos pulling away from the pack of other presidential hopefuls five months towards the May 2022 elections.
Even if the results are clearly in his favor, Marcos said the BBM-Sara UniTeam will not be complacent and will continue to espouse a unifying leadership, which he said is the only way for the country to get back on its feet after the debilitating pandemic. (ai/mtvn)
