MANILA, Philippines — There will be an “overwhelming victory” for the tandem of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, Representative Rida Robes assured Sunday.

Citing their survey, Robes said that the tandem, which is called Uniteam, has the public’s support.

“They will win because in our survey BBM is at 61 percent, Mayor Inday is 53 percent,” she said in a statement.

“There is no doubt that they will win because they have the people’s support. You just can feel it and they openly show their support to the Uniteam. More than 80 percent will vote here. They will win overwhelmingly here,” she added.

Pledging her support, Robes said that Marcos will be a good leader because he has a good heart.

“Alam natin kung ano ang kailangan ng tao (We know what the people need). You have a good heart. You can really lead the country. All we have to do is support you, to let the people vote for you. For all of us here in our own districts, we have to make this campaign real,” she said during her visit to the presidential bet in his headquarters in Mandaluyong City last Friday.

Robes likewise noted that 21 Bulacan mayors have expressed their backing to the Uniteam, 13 of which signed a manifesto of support.

Based on Pulse Asia’s latest presidential and vice presidential preference survey, Marcos and Duterte led the race with both of them having 56 percent of the respondents’ votes.
