A recent survey conducted by the OCTA Research Group showed Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., has the overwhelming support of the Class ABC voters with more than 60 percent saying they will vote for him in the 2022 national polls.

Of the total respondents, 63 percent from Class ABC said they would vote for Marcos if the elections happened at the time of the survey, while Class D recorded 55 percent and the Class E bracket registered 46 percent.

The OCTA Research Tugon Ng Masa nationwide survey was conducted from December 7 to 12 with 1,200 respondents, 99.6 percent of whom were all registered voters. It has a +/-3 percent margin of error.

Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso received 14 percent preference votes from Class ABC, followed by Vice President Leni Robredo with 9 percent; Sen. Manny Pacquiao with 5 percent; and Sen. Panfilo Lacson with 2 percent.

For classes D and E, all aspirants aside from Marcos received less than 25 percent preference votes.

In a statement, the Marcos camp said the OCTA pre-election survey proved that the former senator is the most preferred presidential aspirant from all socioeconomic classes.

The same survey showed that Marcos will dominate the May 2022 presidential race in all areas of the country as he received more than the majority of the preference votes with 54 percent.

His running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, also topped the vice presidential survey with 50 percent.
