Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte maintained their strong leads in the latest survey conducted by Pulse Asia from February 18 to 23.
For the presidential race, the latest pollster’s survey showed that Marcos got 60 percent of the votes of the 2,400 respondents, which is unchanged from January but is still a commanding lead over rival Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo who got 15 percent of the nod of respondents.
In the previous Pulse Asia survey, Robredo got 16 percent.
Meanwhile, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao and Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson got 10 percent, 8 percent and 2 percent, respectively, of the nod of the respondents.
For the vice presidential race, Sara Duterte, daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte, also maintained her lead in the Pulse Asia survey with a 29-point lead over Senate Speaker Vicente “Tito” Sotto 3rd.
Marcos and Sara Duterte have led the surveys for president and vice president, respectively, so far conducted in the Philippines. Besides that of Pulse Asia, the UniTeam tandem have topped the surveys conducted by the Social Weather Stations and PUBLICUS Asia.
Another pollster even said that if the elections were held today, Marcos would run away with a lead of more than 30 million over his closest rival Robredo.
