Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. today said the recent Pulse Asia survey and a mock poll showing him taking the lead in Metro Manila and Region 8 universities in the Visayas, respectively inspire him to work harder in the coming campaign period.
In statement, Marcos said, “I am inspired by the results. We will keep working harder to get our platform and message across to our countrymen. We will work harder to let our countrymen know our vision for a progressive future that we can all enjoy if we unite and work together.”
Marcos was recently sidelined due to pneumonia. He has since recuperated and is ready to hit the campaign trail.
The latest survey conducted by Pulse Asia showed Marcos as the top choice for Metro Manila voters with 33 percent. Marcos was also favored by Class ABC with 28 percent.
Meanwhile, Marcos was also the top vice presidential candidate among college students in the Regional Tertiary Schools Press Conference (RTSPC) mock polls held at the Southern Leyte State University (SLSU) on last February 4. He got 39.6% of the votes.
Meanwhile, Marcos and his running mate Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago will kick off their campaign in the Marcos family hometown of Batac, Ilocos Norte.
A mass will be first held at the Batac Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church in Batac. This will be followed by the kick off ceremony at the Marcos residence on Marcos Avenue.
Marcos and Santiago will then proceed to the Marcos Mariano State University to address the students.
Thereafter, Marcos will proceed to Currimao to inaugurate a solar power plant.
