However, Marcos’ voter preference went down from 60 percent to 56 percent, while second-placer Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo’s voter preference share increased by 9 percentage points from 15 percent to 24 percent.

Before the March 17 to 21 survey, Pulse Asia conducted its survey from February 18 to 23.

Pulse Asia said that Marcos still leads in localities, or 64 percent in Metro Manila, 54 percent in Balance Luzon, 48 percent in Visayas, and 62 percent in Mindanao.  For her part, Robredo got 17 percent in Metro Manila, 30 percent in Balance Luzon, 28 percent in Visayas, and 14 percent in Mindanao.

Notably, Marcos got dips across all locales: -2 percent in Metro Manila, -4 percent in Balance Luzon, -5 percent in Visayas, and -6 percent in Mindanao. Meanwhile, Robredo got big gains in Balance Luzon with 14 percent, and 9 percent each in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Atty. Vic Rodriguez, the spokesperson of BBM, said they remain confident of Marcos’ victory in May 9.

“Once again, presidential frontrunner Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. leads by a strong majority preference rating at 56 percent in the latest Pulse Asia survey conducted from March 17 to March 21 fueled by an equally resolute 53 percent trust rating as shown in the more recent Laylo survey,” he said in a statement.

Coming in third to Marcos and Robredo is Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso with 8 percent and followed by Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao with 4 percent, and Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson with 2 percent.
