Press Releases

DESPITE being viciously and maliciously attacked by various anti-Marcos forces, Bongbong is still winning the heart of the voting population,” said Partido Federal ng Pilipinas Sec. Gen. Thompson Lantion.

Lantion was referring to the Manila Times latest presidential preference poll wherein the PFP’s standard-bearer got a whopping 68 percent share of the survey respondents’ choice.

The remaining preference was shared by Vice-President Leni Robredo with 10.8 percent; Manila Mayor Isko Moreno with 7.9 percent; Sen. Manny Pacquiao with 7.2 percent; Sen. Ping Lacson with 2.5 percent and 1.5 percent for Sen. Bato dela Rosa.

The survey, conducted between October 26 and November 2 by the oldest and one of the reputable broadsheets in the country, reportedly polled some 1,500 registered voters all over the country with the question: If the elections were held today, who will you vote for president?

A combination of face-to-face and assisted phone interviews was reportedly applied in the polling  

which was administered at the time when the detractors of Bongbong were pushing hard on their decades-old rehashed “Oxford diploma” controversy.

“The harder they pushed on with their hate-based innuendos against Bongbong, the bigger their numbers fall in the survey as shown by the big margin of the ratings between BBM and all his opponents,” exclaimed Lantion.

The PFP secretary-general said: “It is the authentic Filipino culture for the underdog that keeps Bongbong’s survey number to shoot up and lead the pack of the 2022 presidentiables.”

“Such a scenario happens when the aggressors’ narratives against the intended victim are packed with lies instead of sound arguments, and if their victim manages to restrain himself from fighting back and remains humbled by his innocence and faith for unity,” he explained.

Lantion pointed out that “despite being in the receiving end of the unfounded invectives, Bongbong remained humble and calm and stayed focused on his campaign for a unifying presidency should he win in next year’s election.”

“That way, the voting population is endeared to him,” said Lantion.

FILIPINO VERSION

68% rating ni BBM sa Manila Times survey, patunay na malapit siya sa puso ng mga botante

SA kabila ng garapalan at malisyosong pag-atake na ginagawa ng anti-Marcos forces, patuloy na napapamahal sa mga botanteng Pinoy si presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr.

Sinabi ni Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) Secretary General Thompson Lantion na isang malinaw na halimbawa rito ay ang walang humpay na pagsirit paitaas sa survey ni BBM.

Sa nakalipas na survey ng Manila Times para sa presidential preference poll, si Marcos ay nakakuha ng napakalaking 68 percent share.

Malayong nakasunod sa kanya si Vice-President Leni Robredo na may 10.8 percent; pangatlo si Manila Mayor Isko Moreno sa 7.9 percent; nakadikit si Senador Manny Pacquiao na may 7.2 percent; Senator Ping Lacson na may 2.5 percent at 1.5 percent ang nakuha naman ni Senador Bato dela Rosa.

Isinagawa ang survey sa pagitan ng October 26 at November 2.

Isa sa pinakamatanda at pinagkakatiwalaang broadsheets sa bansa, ang Manila Times ay nakapagtala  ng 1,500 registered voters sa naturang survey na may tanong na: “Kung ngayon gagawin ang eleksiyon, sino ang inyong iboboto bilang pangulo?

Nabatid na kombinasyon ng face to face at assisted phone interviews ang survey.

Isinagawa ito sa kasagsagan ng pag-atake ng mga kalaban kaugnay sa dekada nang rehashed at malisyosong istorya ng ‘Oxpord diploma controversy.’

“The harder they pushed on with their hate-based innuendos against Bongbong, the bigger their numbers fall in the survey as shown by the big margin of the ratings between BBM and all his opponents,” ani Lantion.

Sinabi ng PFP secretary-general na: “It is the authentic Filipino culture for the underdog that keeps Bongbong’s survey number to shoot up and lead the pack of the 2022 presidentiables.”

“Such a scenario happens when the aggressors’ narratives against the intended victim are packed with lies instead of sound arguments, and if their victim manages to restrain himself from fighting back and remains humbled by his innocence and faith for unity,” dagdag pa nito.

Isa rin sa lalong nakahahanga kay Marcos, ani Lantion ay tahimik lamang nitong sinasagot ang mga isyu, sa kabila ng mapanirang akusasyon laban sa kanya.

“Despite being in the receiving end of the unfounded invectives, Bongbong remained humble and calm and stayed focused on his campaign for a unifying presidency should he win in next year’s election. That way, the voting population is endeared to him,” giit pa ni Lation.
