BBM 55%; ups lead in latest Publicus survey

18 March 2022

WITH less than two months before the 2022 elections, presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. is continuing to dominate his rivals in the presidential race after posting a 55 percent voter preference in the March 9-14 Pahayag survey conducted by Publicus Asia Inc.

Marcos’ 55% improved by at least three percent from his 52.3 % last February as he solidified his lead pulling ahead of his closest rival by 34 % margin.

At distant second place is Leni Robredo with 21 % which is one percent lower than her previous survey number. In third place is Isko Moreno with 8.2 %, Panfilo Lacson, 4.2 % and Manny Pacquiao, 1.8 %.

A total of 7.9 percent remained undecided among the 1,500 respondents.

“The ranking for presidential remained virtually unchanged since last year. While it is true that former Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. increased his preference share from around 52 percent to a little over 55 percent in our latest survey, his numbers remained generally in line to longer-term averages. The same can also be said for VP Leni Robredo and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno,” said Dr. David Yap Jr., chief data scientist of Publicus Asia Inc.

The Publicus noticed that although there was not much movement in the numbers of the presidential candidates, Marcos’ numbers continue to rise since the December survey.

Marcos was 51.9 percent in December, 52.3 percent in February and 55.1 percent this month.

Pahayag is a nationwide purposive sampling survey comprised of 1,500 respondents drawn from a market research panel of over 200,000 Filipinos maintained by a Singapore-based firm.

Marcos is also the runaway winner in all areas in the country. He scored 48.9 percent in NCR; 60.1 percent in Central Luzon; 44.5 percent in Southern Luzon; 52.7 percent in the Visayas; and 67.3 percent in Mindanao.

In the vice-presidential race, Marcos’ running-mate Inday Sara Duterte was also the big winner with 56.5%.

At far second is Kiko Pangilinan, with 12.8 %; Willie Ong, 10.6 %; Vicente Sotto III, 9.9% while 7.7% remained undecided.

Last March 13, Pulse Asia's latest Pulso ng Bayan pre-electoral national survey conducted from February 18 to 23, 2022, also showed Marcos leading the race with almost insurmountable 60% voter preference, pulling ahead of his closest rival by 45% lead margin.

Robredo posted a very low 15%, followed by Isko Domagoso with 10%, Manny Pacquiao with 8%, and Ping Lacson with 2%.

In the March 1-15 report of Kalye Survey, Marcos amassed an impressive 54.2 % in the latest results, and is now practically beyond reach by his opponents.

Based on the summation of Kalye Surveys conducted nationwide from March 1 to 15 with 3,000 respondents, Marcos' 54.2% is way ahead of his rivals as the race enters the homestretch.

He is again followed by Leni Robredo with measly 13.4 %.

These latest developments practically reinforced and confirmed the results submitted by other polling firms and others that showed Marcos leading by miles over his rivals with less than two months before the elections.

BBM 55%; RUNAWAY WINNER SA PUBLICUS SURVEY

KULANG dalawang buwan bago ang Halalan 2022, patuloy na nangingibabaw si presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. sa karera pagka-panguluhan matapos maitala ang 55% voter preference sa pinakahuling Pahayag survey na isinagawa ng polling firm na Publicus Asia noong Marso 9-14.

Tumaas pa ng tatlong porsyento ang puntos ni Marcos na nakakuha ng 55% kumpara sa kanyang 52.3% noong nakaraang Pebrero, na lalong nagpalaki sa agwat ng kanyang kalamangan sa mga kalaban na umabot hanggang sa 34 % sa ngayon.

Pumangalawa sa survey si Leni Robredo na may 21% na sinundan nina Isko Moreno na may 8.2%, sumunod si Panfilo Lacson na nakasungkit ng 4.2% at Manny Pacquiao na 1.8%, habang may 7.9% pang undecided.

“The ranking for presidential remained virtually unchanged since last year. While it is true that former Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr., increased his preference share from around 52 percent to a little over 55 percent in our latest survey, his numbers remained generally in line to a longer term averages. The same can also be said for VP Leni Robredo and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno,” sabi ni Dr. David Yap Jr., chief data scientist ng Publicus Asia.

Napansin naman ng Publicus na bagama’t hindi masyadong gumagalaw ang numero ng bawat kandidato pagka-pangulo, nanatili pa ring tumataas si Marcos mula sa survey noong Disyembre na may 51.9%, 52.3% noong Pebrero at 55.1% ngayong buwan. 

Ang Pahayag ay isang nationwide purposive sampling survey na may 1,500 respondents na mula sa mahigit na 200,000 Filipinos market research panel na nasa pangangalaga ng Singapore-based firm.

Malaki din ang lamang ni Marcos sa iba’t-ibang lugar sa bansa. May marka siyang 48.9% sa NCR; 60.1% sa Central Luzon; 44.5% sa Southern Luzon; 52.7% mula sa Visayas at 67.3% sa buong Mindanao.

Habang sa vice-presidential race naman, nanaig din ang running-mate ni Marcos na si Mayor Inday Sara Duterte na nakakuha ng 56.5%, malayo sa pumangalawang si Kiko Pangilinan na 12.8% lang, si Doc Willie Ong ay 10.6%, si Sen. Vicente Sotto III na may 9.9% at natitirang 7.7% undecided.

Noong Marso 13, ayon sa bagong pre-electoral national survey ng Pulse Asia na isinagawa noong Pebrero 18-23, 2022, pinaboran pa rin si Marcos sa lahat ng kandidato na nakakuha ng 60%.

Malayo kay Marcos si Leni Robredo na may 15%, sumunod si Isko Moreno na 10%, Manny Pacquiao na may 8% at si Ping Lacson na 2% lang.

Maging sa Kalye Survey noong Marso 1-15, nakakalulang resulta rin ang nakuha ni Marcos na may 54.2% at malayong-malayo sa kanyang mga kalabang kandidato.

Base sa buod ng Kalye Survey na ginawa sa buong bansa mula Marso 1 hanggang Marso 15 na may 3,000 na lumahok, ang 54.2% ni Marcos ay malaking bentahe kumpara sa kanyang mga kalaban, sinundan siya ni Leni Robredo na may mababang marka na 13.4%.

Ang mga pinakahuling ulat na ito ay lalong nagpatibay at nagkumpirma sa mga resultang isinumite ng ibang mga polling firm at tunay na nagpakita na si Marcos ay nangunguna ng milya-milya sa kanyang mga karibal samantalang wala nang dalawang buwan bago ang halalan
