Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is ahead by at least nine points against his presidential rivals in the latest Pulse Asia pre-election survey.
Duterte got 33 percent shared of votes, which is one percent lower than his previous numbers.
The survey also cited that majority of the voters who chose Duterte came from Mindanao and National Capital Region (NCR).
Conducted from April 26 to 29, the ABS-CBN-commissioned poll was answered by 4,000 respondents with a margin of error of 1.5 percent.
The same poll also marked a three-percent increase in former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas’s share of votes with a total of 22 percent.
Roxas is statistically tied in second place with Senator Grace Poe with the latter’s 21 percent share of votes.
Poe’s numbers showed a one percent decrease compared to Pulse Asia’s last poll.
On the other hand, Vice President Jejomar Binay came in third place with a total of 17 percent share of votes, which is two percent lower from the previous poll.
Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago consistently got two percent share of votes.
