According to the Pulse Asia survey held from March 17-21, former Senator Bongbong Marcos is still the presidential frontrunner. Vice President Leni Robredo’s tally grew by 9%, the biggest increase among all the candidates.
Robredo’s score went from 15% to 24% while Marcos’ number dropped from 60% to 56%.
Marcos still secured the number one spot across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. He scored the highest in NCR with 64%. He also still leads across socioeconomic classes with 56% in both Classes C and D, and 52% in Class E.
Robredo gained 13 tallies from Class C, 10 from Class D, and 9 from Class E.
Atty. Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s spokesperson, said “The survey numbers are starting to reflect what we have been seeing on the ground all along: the massive crowds, the fierce passion, the untiring commitment of Filipinos from all walks of life, coming together to rally behind Leni Robredo’s bid for the presidency.”
The Marcos camp called on supporters to not be complacent.
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno remained as the third choice, followed by Senator Manny Pacquiao and Senator Panfilo Lacson.
