Class E voters shun Leni with only 11% in OCTA Research survey; BBM preferred by 46%

Press Releases
28 December 2021

ONLY eleven out of one hundred Filipino voters from the so-called ‘poorest of the poor or the marginalized’ social class will vote for presidential aspirant Leni Robredo if the elections were held between Dec. 7 and Dec. 12, 2021.

In contrast, 46 voters out of every hundred from the same Class E voting sector prefer Bongbong Marcos, according to the latest test polling by OCTAResearch, a group of academicians mostly from the University of the Philippines.

Citizens who belong to Class E are those with no homes that they can call their own and usually live on a hand-to-mouth basis, meaning, they are not assured if they will have something to eat by the next meal time.

They are mostly informal settlers who do not have a stable source of income and often rely on government dole-outs to survive.

But they comprise the majority of voters and their decision to give their support to Marcos indicates that they see him as a symbol of hope.

Even the Class D or the working class expressed support for the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard bearer at 55 percent, while the Class ABC or the economic classes favored him at 63 percent preference votes.

These figures confirm that Filipinos from all classes of society have shown confidence in the unifying leadership of Marcos, as were also shown on surveys conducted by other polling firms where he was rating at more than 50 percent.

As for the other presidential aspirants, Francisco Domagoso received 23 percent preference votes from Class E, followed by Leni Robredo with 11 percent, Manny Pacquiao with six percent, and Panfilo Lacson Jr. with four percent.

For Class ABCD, other aspirants except Marcos have received around 15 percent and below preference votes.

The latest election survey proved that all socio-economic classes believed in his leadership that pushes for economic growth and peace and order in the entire nation.

Previously, Marcos was also the top presidential aspirant receiving more than 50 percent preference votes from surveys conducted by the SWS, Publicus, Kalye Survey, DZRH, RMN, and Pulse Asia.

Sara ‘Inday’ Duterte, Marcos’ running mate, is also the top choice as the next vice president in the said survey as she received 50 percent preference votes.

“The overwhelming figures Bongbong received in the OCTA Research survey humble all of us in the BBM-Sara UniTeam as we all strive to be better in our tasks of meeting the expectations and aspirations of our supporters and the rest of the Filipino people,” Atty. Vic Rodriguez, Marcos’ spokesperson, said.

“We shall not blink, we shall not falter, until every voice is heard through the ballot until every soul is counted on Election Day,” he added.

FILIPINO VERSION

Leni, tinalikuran ng nasa laylayan ng lipunan, 11% lang ang nakuha kumpara sa 46% ni BBM sa OCTA Research Survey

LABING-ISA lamang mula sa 100 botanteng Pinoy na tinatawag na mga nasa laylayan ng lipunan o ‘poorest of the poor’ ang boboto kay presidential aspirant Leni Robredo kung ginanap ang halalan noong nagdaang Disyembre 7-12, taong kasalukuyan.

Sa kabaligtaran, 46 botante naman mula sa 100 Pinoy na mula sa Class E voting sector ang pumapabor sa kanididatura ni Bongbong Marcos, base na rin sa pinaka-latest na resulta ng survey na isinagawa ng OCTA Research, na isang grupo ng mga propesor na karamihan ay mula mismo sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas.

Ang mamamayang mula sa Class E ay mga mahihirap na kababayan na walang sariling bahay o iyong tinatawag na ‘isang kahig, isang tuka.’

Sila rin iyong kalimitang binabansagan na nasa laylayan ng lipunan na karamihan ay walang trabaho o kung hindi man ay walang sapat na kita para mabuhay ng maayos ang kani-kanilang pamilya.

Sila rin iyong mayoryang bilang ng mga botante sa bansa at ang pagpapakita ng nila ng suporta kay Marcos ay nangangahulugan na nakikita nila siya bilang simbolo ng pag-asa sa pag-ahon sa kahirapan.

Kahit ang Class D o mga ‘working class’ ay nagpahayag ng pagpabor sa kandidatura ng standard bearer ng Partido Federal ng Pilipinas.

May 55 posiyentong boto ang nakuha ni Marcos dito, samantalang 63 percent naman ang nakuha ng dating senador mula sa economic Class ABC.

Kinukumpirma ng mga numerong ito na anumang antas ng lipunan ngayon – mayaman o mahirap – ay nagkakaisang naniniwala sa liderato ni Marcos kung saan ay halos ganitong bilang din ang nakuha nito mula sa ibang survey firms, tulad ng SWS, Publicus, Kalye Survey, DZRH, RMN and Pulse Asia.

Kung si Marcos ay may 46 percent mula sa ‘marginalized class,’ malayo itong hindi hamak sa 11 percent na nakuha ni Leni Robredo.

Mas pumangalawa pa kay Marcos si Isko Moreno mula sa 23 porsiyentong boto na nakuha nito.

Pangatlo si Robredo; pang-apat si Manny Pacquiao na may anim na porsiyento at panglima naman si Ping Lacson na nakakuha ng ‘four percent.’

Sa Class ABCD, maliban kay Marcos, ang mga katunggali nito ay mababa na sa 15 percent ang mga nakuhang boto.

Ang running-mate ni Marcos na si Inday Sara Duterte ay nakakuha rin ng impresibong 58 percent mula sa Class E, habang malayong nakasunod sa kanya si Tito Sotto na may 33 percent. 

Sobrang layo rin ng mga katunggali na sina Kiko Pangilinan na may tatlong porsiyento; dalawang porsiyento si Willie Ong at one percent lang ang nakuha ni Lito Atienza.

“The overwhelming figures Bongbong received in the OCTA Research survey humbles all of us in the BBM-Sara UniTeam as we all strive to be better in our tasks of meeting the expectations and aspirations of our supporters and the rest of the Filipino people,” pahayag naman ni Atty. Vic Rodriguez, chief of staff at spokesman ni Marcos.

“We shall not blink, we shall not falter, until every voice is heard through the ballot until every soul is counted on Election Day,” sabi pa nito.
