The camp of presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos called on supporters to remain focused on achieving their common target of 70% presidential preference mark.
Atty. Vic Rodriguez, spokesperson and chief of staff of Marcos, made the statement after Pulse Asia Research released the results of its March 17-21 survey where Marcos maintained his lead over his rivals in the May 2022 presidential race.
“Although 32 days remain before the national and local elections, we entreat our supporters, volunteers, and campaigners to refrain from complacency and remain focused in achieving our common target of 70% presidential preference mark,” said Rodriguez in a statement.
While acknowledging the overwhelming support of the people as the Pulse Asia survey results clearly show, Rodriguez said “the challenge to make history shall remain kindled until election day, and even beyond.”
“We shall not rest until the 70% preference survey polls position is attained, until every vote is counted and the aspirations of the Filipino people become a reality,” Rodriguez stressed.
In the Pulse Asia survey, Marcos garnered 56% voter preference followed by Vice President Leni Robredo (24%), Manila Mayor Isko Moreno (8%), Sen. Manny Pacquiao (6%) and Sen. Panfilo Lacson (2%).
