MANILA — If the elections were held today, the BBM-Sara UniTeam of presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will be the hands-down winners in vote-rich Caloocan City, according to the latest survey conducted by private polling firm Actual and Comprehensive Evaluators, Inc.
The result of the survey in the three districts of Caloocan, with 5,164 respondents from all social classes and age groups, shows that Bongbong is way ahead of the pack with a whopping 71 percent, while Leni Robredo and Isko Moreno were tied at a distant second with 10 percent each, Sen. Panfilo Lacson 5 percent, while Sen. Manny Pacquiao with 2 percent.
The result shows that seven out of ten voters prefer Bongbong over the other presidential aspirants, while at least 2 percent of the respondents were still undecided.
In the vice-presidential poll, Sara garners 49 percent; Sen. Vicente Sotto III, 34 percent; Willie Ong, 9 percent; Sen. Francis Pangilinan, 4 percent; while 3 percent remain undecided.
A traditional Marcos bailiwick, Bongbong emerges as the overwhelming favorite in Caloocan’s “Bukid Area,” with the newly-formed District’s 1 and 3 giving him 74 percent and 71 percent preference, respectively.
Bongbong also dominates in the commercial hub areas in District 2 with his 67 percent preference as compared to Moreno’s 11 percent and Robredo’s 13 percent.
Duterte, on the other hand, weaves her magic in Districts 1 and 3 with 53 percent and 52 percent preference ratings, respectively, then outclasses everyone in District 2 with her 44 percent preference compared to Sotto’s 38 percent and Ong’s 11 percent.
