The UniTeam candidate of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte led anew the nationwide survey of DZRH for the month of April.
The pre-election poll was conducted on April 18-19.
Marcos, also known as BBM on the campaign trail, got 52.9 percent of the vote of the 7,560 respondents, or an increase of 3.1 percentage points from the March survey. Meanwhile, his closest rival, Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo got 24.3 percent.
This means Marcos has a lead of 28.6 percent over Robredo in the pre-election survey.
Trailing the two were Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso with 8.2 percent, Sen. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao (5.8 percent) and Sen. Panfilo Lacson (3.6 percent).
DZRH said that 3.9 percent of the respondents were undecided on their chosen presidential bet.
In the vice presidential race, Carpio got a 54.2-percent rating or a 2.4-percentage point increase from the March survey. Her closest rival is Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto 3rd with 16.9 percent, who is the running mate of Lacson.
They were followed by Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan (15.1 percent), Dr. Willie Ong (6.6 percent), and Buhay party-list Rep. Jose “Lito” Atienza Jr. (1.1 percent), who are the running mates of Robredo, Moreno and Pacquiao, respectively.
Marcos and Duterte have been consistently topping the pre-poll surveys for president and vice president, including those conducted by the Social Weather Stations, Pulse Asia, PUBLICUS Asia, and Pedro Laylo.
