Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay regained the top spot in Pulse Asia’s nationwide presidential survey with 1,500 respondents.
Conducted from December 4 to 11, the presidential preference poll showed that 33 percent of respondents voted for Binay.
This is 14 percent higher compared to Binay’s 19 percent share of votes during Pulse Asia’s September poll.
DUTERTE AND POE ON SECOND PLACE. Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Grace Poe tied for second place with 23 percent and 21 percent of votes, respectively.
It’s a tie for Durterte and Poe due to the “± 2 percent error margin.”
Senator Poe previously dominated the June and September presidential polls.
But the embattled senator currently faces four disqualification complaints before the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
Duterte, on the other hand, made headlines when he cussed Pope Francis during his proclamation as PDP-Laban’s standard bearer last November 30.
He is also facing a disqualification complaint from petitioner Ruben Castor before the COMELEC.
ROXAS, SANTIAGO RANKING. Former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas came in fourth place with 17 percent of votes.
This despite Roxas’s recently launched music video “Fast Forward,” where he was endorsed by some of the biggest names in show business, including teen loveteam Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.
Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, on the other hand, got a fifth place finish with four percent of votes.
