Bongbong tops poll survey anew with 51%; UniTeam gets Cebu’s Partido Barug's support

29 January 2022

ANOTHER pre-election preference survey has confirmed Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos, Jr.'s frontrunner position among the presidential hopefuls in the upcoming 2022 elections.

The survey, conducted by the Issues and Advocacies Center, made public on Tuesday, showed that 51% of the respondents would vote for Marcos Jr., an 8% increase from the December 2021 edition of the survey.

According to The Center's director Ed Malay, the Pulso ng Pilipino survey was conducted from January 10 to 16, 2022, with 2,400 respondents.

The non-commissioned survey covered 16 cities and one municipality in the National Capital Region (NCR) and included respondents from all socio-economic classes in the surveyed areas.

The survey also showed a slugfest for the second spot as Manila Mayor Isko Moreno registered 14%, closely followed by Leni Robredo with 11%.  Sen. Manny Pacquiao completed the statistical three-way tie with 10%. 

Sen. Ping Lacson is in fifth place with 8%, while the three remaining presidential aspirants posted 1% or below single digit.

Meanwhile, the UniTeam's chances in the 2022 elections were further enhanced after the Partido Barug founded by Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama endorsed the formidable tandem.

Mayor Rama himself made the formal announcement on Wednesday with other local government officials and his close political allies.

Aside from Partido Barug, the Bakud Party headed by Danao City Mayor Ramon "Nito" Duterte Durano III had also endorsed the 2022 election bid of the UniTeam.

FILIPINO VERSION

BBM MULING NANGUNA SA SURVEY, 51%; UNITEAM NAKAKUHA NG SUPORTA SA PARTIDO BARUG NG CEBU

ISA na namang survey ang nagpatunay na si Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr., ang nananatiling nangungunang kandidato sa pagka-pangulo sa darating na halalan sa Mayo 2022.

Ang survey na isinagawa ng Issues and Advocates Center na inilabas nitong Martes ay nagpapakita na nakakuha si Marcos Jr., ng 51 porsyentong voters preference o mas mataas ng walong porsyento sa nakaraan nilang survey nitong Disyembre.

Ayon kay Ed Malay, director ng The Center, ang Pulso ng Pilipino survey ay isinagawa simula Enero 10 hanggang Enero 16 ngayong taon sa 2,400 respondents.

Ang nasabing non-commissioned survey ay isinagawa sa lahat ng socio-economic classes sa 16 na lungsod at isang munisipalidad sa National Capital Region (NCR).

Lumabas din sa survey na mahigpit ang laban sa ikalawang puwesto kung saan si Manila Mayor Isko Moreno ay nasa malayong pangalawa na mayroong 14 porsyento, habang halos kadikit lamang nito sa ikatlong pwesto si Leni Robredo na mayroong 11 porsyento, kinumpleto naman ni Sen. Manny Pacquiao ang “statistical three-way tie” na nakakuha ng 10 porsyento.

Nasa ika-limang pwesto naman si Sen. Ping Lacson na nakakuha ng walong porsyento habang ang tatlo pang natitirang presidential aspirants ay nakakuha ng isang porsyento o di kaya ay mas mababa pa rito.

Samantala, lalo namang tumibay ang suporta sa BBM-Sara UniTeam matapos silang pormal na inindorso ng maimpluwensyang Partido Barug na itinatag ni Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama.

Pormal na inanunsyo ni Mayor Rama ang kanilang pagsuporta sa UniTeam nitong Miyerkules kasama ang iba pang local government officials at mga kaalyadong pulitiko sa Cebu.

Bukod sa Partido Barug, nagpahayag din ng suporta sa UniTeam ang Bakud Party sa pangunguna ni Danao City Mayor Ramon ‘Nito' Duterte Durano III.
