The headlines caught my attention the other day. The first crucial survey results has already been released.
Senator Grace Poe regained the top spot in the latest Pulse Asia presidential survey released last week. Poe, topped the survey with 30 percent. Vice President Jejomar Binay of the United Nationalist Alliance ranked second with 23 percent, down from 33 percent. Last December, Binay topped the presidential survey for the May 2016 polls. Binay shared the second spot with Liberal Party standard-bearer Manuel "Mar" Roxas II and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte who both ranked 20 percent.
In third place is Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago with four percent voter preference. Meanwhile, Sen. Francis "Chiz" Escudero remained the most preferred vice presidential candidate in 2016 with 33 percent while Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. ranked second with 23 percent, followed by Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robrebo with 18 percent voter preference. Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano scored 14 percent while Sen. Gregorio "Gringo" Honasan II and Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV scored 5 percent and 4 percent, respectively. The survey was conducted from January 24 to 28. Poe, who is ahead of her rivals based on the latest presidential survey, is still facing disqualification cases before the Supreme Court.
This is an early survey; it was made before the campaign began. Although the trending is established it is still too early to make an assumption. When the campaign sorties begin in full swing and when these candidates engage the people and get their platform across there will be changes on the numbers. There is also a big chance that some of these candidates will split the vote of the others depending on every move one makes in these very delicate times. This will all depend on strategies, machineries, and funding. I think the Binay and Poe race to the top is very interesting because they are both reliant on private support. Let's see who has the deeper pocket to sustain the campaign. I would also like to watch the vice presidential race between Escudero and Marcos. It would be interesting to see these young politicians overtake each other.
