Bongbong, 51%; UniTeam gains ground in Bicol electorate, Leni, 33%

10 February 2022

IF pre-election surveys are of any indication, then it can be said that presidential candidate Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. is gaining traction even in his opponent’s home region, Bicol.

In the latest survey conducted by Laylo Research Strategies in January this year, Marcos garnered 51% as compared to Leni Robredo’s 33%.

Marcos actually padded his lead considering the results of the same firm’s November 2021 survey when Marcos registered 45% against Robredo’s 29%.

Francisco Domagoso Moreno recorded 8% in January, compared to his 7% in November, Manny Pacquiao dropped to 3% from his previous 4%, while Panfilo Lacson dropped to 4% from a relatively higher 6% last November.

Overall, Marcos garnered 64% voters’ preference nationwide in January from an already dominant 58% in November, while Robredo meagerly upped her numbers from 13% to 16%.

Meanwhile, in a January 2022 survey conducted by Tangere, the country’s biggest online market research panel, Marcos led all presidential candidates in Bicol with 45.27% voters’ preference as compared to Robredo’s 25.57%.

Moreno was third in the same region with 17.42%, followed by Pacquiao with 6.88%, and Lacson was at the tail-end of the pack with 3.96%.

Nationwide, Marcos has stretched his lead to 57.67%, reinforced by his good showing in Mindanao at 67.03%; NCR, with 57.99% and 63.59% in Northern and Central Luzon.

Political experts are saying that it will take a major miracle to offset Marcos’ lead, which, if not checked immediately will translate to a landslide victory in May.

“Figures don’t lie. This is science talking. Well, those massive caravans and the number of people who attended the proclamation rally in Bulacan even if we are still in the pandemic is a sure sign that the numbers indicated in the different surveys and the reality on the ground coincide. Again, it will take more than just prayers to beat Marcos in this election,” one political expert said.

BONGBONG 51%; BANDERA NG UNITEAM NAITAYO SA BICOL, LENI 33%

KUNG pre-election surveys ang pagbabasehan, walang dudang si presidential candidate Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. ang umaarangkada kahit pa sa balwarte ng kanyang katunggali sa Bicol region.

Sa inilabas na survey ng Laylo Research Strategies Enero nitong taon, nakakuha ng 51% si Marcos kumpara kay Leni Robredo na nakasungkit lamang ng 33%.

Tumamo ng karagdagang kalamangan si Marcos sa kanyang bentahe sa naunang resulta ng parehong survey firm noong Nobyembre 2021 kung saan nakakuha si Marcos ng 45% habang si Robredo ay 29%.

Nakapagtala naman si Francisco Domagoso Moreno ng 8% nitong Enero kumpara sa 7% nito noong Nobyembre 2021, bumaba naman sa 3% si Manny Pacquiao mula sa 4%, habang si Panfilo Lacson ay sumadsad din na mula 6% noong Nobyembre 2021 ngayon ay 4%.

Sa kabuuan, nakakuha ng 64% voters’ preference nationwide si Marcos nitong Enero galing sa pagdomina nito noong Nobyembre 2021 na may talang 58%, si Robredo naman ay bahagyang umakyat mula sa 13% na naging 16%. 

Samantala, nitong Enero 2022 survey na isinagawa ng Tangere na syang kinikilalang pinakamalaking online market research group, nanguna si Marcos sa lahat ng kandidato pagka-pangulo sa Bicol na may 45.27% voters’ preference at si Robredo naman ay may talang 25.57%

Pumangatlo naman si Moreno sa parehong rehiyon na nakapagtala ng 17.42%, sinundan ni Pacquiao na nakakuha ng 6.88% at huli naman sa listahan si Lacson na may 3.96%.

Sa pangkalahatan, pumalo ang lamang ni Marcos na nakakuha ng 57.67%, pinatunayan ito ng magagandang resulta ng mga survey sa Mindanao na 67.03%, sa NCR na may 57.99% at 63.59% sa Northern at Central Luzon.

Sinabi naman ng mga political experts na isang malaking milagro lamang ang maaaring magpabagsak sa kalamangan ni Marcos, at kung magtuloy-tuloy ay walang dudang siya ang magiging pangulo sa darating na halalan sa Mayo.

“Figures don’t lie. This is science talking. Well, those massive caravans and the number of people who attended the proclamation rally in Bulacan even if we are still in the pandemic is a sure sign that the numbers indicated in the different surveys and the reality on the ground coincide. Again, it will take more than just prayers to beat Marcos in this election,” sabi ng isang political expert.
