PARTIDO Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. could be the runaway winner in the May 9 national and local elections, with a margin of more than 27 million votes.
This was based on Pulso ng Pilipino, a compilation and summation of all Kalye Survey results produced by information and statistical data provider Splat Communications, working jointly with consulting firm Simplified Strategic Solutions (SSS).
Allowing for a voter turnout of 82 percent of the total 67-million registered voters, or 54.94-million voters, Marcos will get 33,128,820 votes. Leni Robredo, a very far second, will get 5,637,638 votes. This figure indicates a lead of 27,491,182 votes for Marcos.
Isko Moreno will place third with 4,603,972 votes, while Manny Pacquiao and Panfilo Lacson will garner 3,483,196 and 1,395,476 votes, respectively.
Splat Communications explained that they decided to do an estimation to give a clear picture of the statistical data obtained.
Based on the January 1 to 31 results, Marcos got a total of 8,170 or 60.30 percent; Robredo got 1,323 or 9.77 percent.
Moreno got 1,135 or 8.38 percent; Pacquiao, 859 or 6.34 percent; and Lacson, 344 or 2.54 percent.
There were 113,548 respondents for the said period, 12.67 percent of which were undecided.
“With a little over three months left before the elections, please be observant and extra-vigilant. Expect all the worst imaginable drama, intrigues, downright lies, smear campaigns, and threats against the frontrunner BBM,” Splat said.
“All of his opponents will become desperate as Election Day draws near. Now the disparity is as clear as day. This lead is insurmountable at this stage,” Splat added in the voiceover.
