He is followed by former senator Bongbong Marcos (23.1%), Vice President Leni Robredo (18.31%), and Senator Manny Pacquiao (17.88%). The other 11.3% was shared by Senators Ping Lacson and Ronald dela Rosa, and former presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella.

Moreno ranked second in balance Luzon with 25.84% against Marcos’ 30.33% and in Mindanao with 22.7%, closely behind Pacquiao’s 24.63%.
In September, a non-commissioned survey was also conducted by DigiVoice. It found that the three presidential candidates, Former Senator Bongbong Marcos, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, were statistically ‘tied’ on the survey, leaving Moreno slightly leading.
