A survey showed Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. as the most preferred presidential bets in 2022, but Vice President Leni Robredo’s rating also significantly gained.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. were the most preferred presidential bets in 2022, according to a recent survey conducted by RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD).

Moreno obtained a voter preference of 25.39% while Marcos garnered 23.10% based on the RPMD nationwide poll, taken from Oct. 17 to 26, or after the filing of certificates of candidacy.

Meanwhile, Vice President Leni Robredo “significantly gained a rating of 18.31%” from just 6.51% in the previous survey conducted Aug. 1 to 10, according to RPMD.

The survey used face-to-face interviews of 10,000 respondents and has an error margin of plus or minus two percentage points.

“If the May 2022 elections transpired during the survey period, Isko Moreno would score a 2.29% win with 25.39% of the country’s voting population. However, with a plus or minus two percentage points margin of error, it will be a .29% lead for Isko over Bongbong Marcos who acquired only 23.10% support from the voters,” Paul Martinez of RPMD said in a post on Facebook.

In fourth place was Sen. Manny Pacquiao with 17.88%, followed by Sen. Panfilo Lacson with 7.08%, Sen. Ronald dela Rosa with 3.41% and former presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella with 0.81%.

In the National Capital Region, Moreno earned 30.53% of the votes, followed by Marcos with 28%.

Marcos was the top choice in the rest of Luzon with 30.33% voter preference, followed by Moreno with 25.84%.

In the Visayas, Moreno dominated the poll with 24.63% backing his candidacy, followed by Pacquiao with 23.18% and Robredo with 21.97%.

Pacquiao, meanwhile, acquired 24.63% voters’ preference in Mindanao, followed by Moreno with 22.7% and Robredo 16.79%.

The survey showed 4.02% of the respondents nationwide “don’t know,” “refused” or did not provide an answer.

Meanwhile, presidential daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio was the top bet for vice president, getting the backing of 33.11% of respondents.

Duterte-Carpio, however, is seeking reelection despite calls from her supporters to run for president in next year’s polls.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III, who is Lacson’s running mate, came in second with 26.87% voter preference.

Sen. Bong Go, running under PDP-Laban along with Dela Rosa, ranked third with 14.92%.

Go was followed by Robredo’s running mate Sen. Francis Pangilinan with 11.13%.

Moreno’s running mate, cardiologist Willie Ong, obtained a voter preference of 8.94%.

Deputy Speaker Lito Atienza, running mate of Pacquiao, got 2.15%.

The remaining 2.88% “don’t know,” “refused” or did not provide an answer, the survey said.

Growing support

Support for Robredo’s presidential bid continues to grow with more supporters responding to her people’s campaign and participating in caravans, her spokesman said.

Barry Gutierrez noted the Vice President and her camp are grateful for the outpouring of support since she declared her presidential bid last month.

He said many have volunteered for Robredo’s campaign and joined the volunteer-driven caravan displaying pink ribbons.

The Vice President expressed gratitude to Filipinos who waved their pink flags during a nationwide caravan to declare their support for her.

Robredo and her running mate Pangilinan said that their fight in the 2022 elections will spark a “people’s campaign.”

She admitted that she faces the difficulty of lack of machinery but is encouraged by the overwhelming support and is hopeful of a solid Bicol vote in 2022, saying she works hard to deliver the message of the importance of the elections next year.

Meanwhile, Moreno’s camp said his campaign promise of a 50% tax cut on fuel and power – despite billions in government revenue loss – resonated with the people, as reflected in his topping a recent survey.

“Mayor Isko bared his tax-cut plan in a dialogue with farmers in Tarlac City last Oct. 21, which was within the survey period. This means that his plan if he becomes president resonated well with the people,” Lito Banayo, who is with Moreno’s camp, said in a statement on Monday.

Moreno has promised the tax cut amid rising oil prices, even though the Department of Finance warned that the government stands to lose P131.4 billion if excise taxes were suspended, affecting the country’s recovery.

Moreno in his sorties said the government could recoup its losses and that it should prioritize the people’s welfare first. – With Pia Lee-Brago, Marc Jayson Cayabyab
