Senator Bongbong Marcos left his vice presidential rivals huffing and puffing in the first seven days of the campaign period.
Based on the Politiko-VOX Ranking from February 9 to 15 2016, Marcos cornered an average of 47 VOX points.
Trailing behind is Senator Chiz Escudero with 16 VOX points.
Tied for third and fourth places are Senators Antonio Trillanes IV and Alan Peter Cayetano with 10 VOX points apiece.
In fifth place is Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo with 7 VOX points.
Senator Gringo Honasan chalked up zero VOX points during the period.
Social media and Web news are expected to play a major role in this year’s election campaign as Internet penetration in the Philippines has climbed to close to 50 percent from less than 10 percent in the last presidential derby in 2010.
