     Former Sen. Loren Legarda who has been topping the senatorial elections in recent years is locked in a tight battle for top honors with another former Senator Sorsogon Gov. Chiz Escudero. Legarda leads Escudero by just 2%, 60% to 58%, respectively.

     Former Senator and Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano is also in a tie for the 3rd and 4th spot with Senate Majority Floor Leader Migz Zubiri, 53% and 50%, respectively. Former DPWH Sec. Mark Villar is in fifth with 48% and former Sen. JV Ejercito “The Good One” is in sixth with 47%.

Hard-hitting Broadcaster Raffy Tulfo is in 7th to 8th position with 45% that places him in a tie with Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian who posted 41%.  

     In 9th and 10th positions are movie actor Robin Padilla with 38% which is also the same output of former Defense Sec. Gibo Teodoro at 38%. Also in a tie for the 11th and 12th spot are Sen. Joel Villanueva and former Vice President Jojo Binay with 35% apiece.

     Hanging on for dear life is former Sen. Jinggoy Estrada at 32% followed by former PNP Chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar at 29%. Sen. Risa Hontiveros at 28% is out of the Magic 12 and so is Sen. Dick Gordon who is in 20th spot with only 17%. This could be the worst performance of an reelectionist senator and it could be attributed to his one-man show during the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee hearings that did not sit well with the public. Former Sen. Sonny Trillanes is stuck in 21st place with only 15% to show. # # #

BBM Maintains Lead Despite All The Trash Thrown At Him; 92% Of Voters Are Firm In Their Decision; Negative Campaign Strategy Boomerang On Opposition As Leni’s Ratings Are Neither Here Nor There Despite The Endorsements; The Catholic Church Will Never Be The Same Again
After the 22 Polls.

     PULSO NG PILIPINO --- Former Sen. Bongbong Marcos continues to hold sway in the presidential race as he keeps his double-digit lead over his closes rival Vice President Leni Robredo in the latest Pulso ng Pilipino pre-poll survey conducted by the Issues and Advocacy Center (The Center) with Marcos posting huge numbers in all the four regions of the country.

      The Center conducted a non-commissioned nationwide survey on April 25-30, 2022 with a respondent base of 2,440 covering the NCR, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao regions. The survey covered registered voters in all the socio economic classes ABC, D and E that were selected at random with ages ranging from 18 to 65 years old.

      As in its past surveys, The Center used the standard multi-stage area probability sampling (MSAP) where the village center (Barangay Hall) as the point of origin with the field staff proceeding in either direction along the major streets at the discretion of the researcher. A skip interval method was employed to obviate any bias in the responses.

      The survey showed Former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte emerging as the most preferred presidential and vice presidential candidates in the scheduled May 9 elections. Based on the survey conducted from April 25-30, 2022, some 59% said they will vote for Marcos if the elections were held on the dates the survey was conducted.

      The Pulso ng Pilipino showed that Marcos practically cornered the public’s perception in all the major geographic areas and socio-economic classes – 55% in the NCR, 57% in Luzon, 61% in the Visayas, and 63% in Mindanao for a national average of 59%.

      In contrast, the same Pulso ng Pilipino survey showed Vice President Leni Robredo scoring 22% in the NCR, 19% in Luzon, 18% in Visayas and 13% in Mindanao for a national average of 19%. Domagoso ranked third at 10%, followed by Senator Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao, 5%; Senator Panfilo "Ping" Lacson at 4%; Leodegario “Ka Leody” De Guzman, .5%, Faisal Mangondato at .25%; former Palace spokesperson Ernesto "Ernie" Abella at .25%; Jose Montemayor Jr. at 0% ; and former Defense chief Norberto Gonzales also with 0% while some 4% said they are still undecided.

     Marcos in the same Pulso ng Pilipino survey also cornered the different socio economic classes scoring a high of 54% among those in the ABC class, 55% of those in the D class and 56% of the respondents in the E class the largest block of voters who are registered and qualified to vote in the May 9, 2022 elections.

      In a sense, what these figures show is that Marcos enjoys a well-distributed ratings that cuts across all the socio economic classes and geographic areas. What this also means is that it would be next to impossible for a presidential aspirant or for any candidate to a national position to win without at least posting a decent rating in Mindanao.

      The Center also bared that the difference between the number of people attending the grand rallies of Vice President Leni Robredo and the survey ratings that she is generating is primarily due to the fact that the participants to these rallies are almost the same people in each of these rallies especially if the rallies are accessible by land transport. “There is simply no spontaneity in these rallies as many of the attendees are bused in,” The Center added.

      Notwithstanding the number of people attending the rallies of the Leni-Kiko tandem, the voters’ preferences for Ms. Robredo appeared to have already reached the ceilings as her ratings has not approximated the number of people in these rallies. There are also a number of reasons why Robredo has not been faring well in the surveys which is representative of the public’s sentiments.

      Ed M.  Malay, director of The Center, said that the Vice President’s campaign has unnecessarily created a division between the affluent which is evidenced by the character of those supporting her who are present in their rallies and the people in the lower end of the social strata. Many of those surveyed by The Center also are uncomfortable with the reported alliance between Robredo and the left-leaning organizations whose main goal is to bring down the government and replace it with their communist ideology. While Robredo is running as an independent she cannot hide the fact that her campaign is being organized by the Liberal Party which has its own share of controversies including the missing Typhoon Yolanda Funds, and the massacre of the 44 PNP SAF.

      At the same time, the survey has started to capture the impact of the command votes or the block votes and while the leaders of the Catholic Church have literally endorsed the candidacy of Leni Robredo and Kiko Pangilinan which has been disguised as a moral choice, Catholics by and large are not bounded by the political bias of the Bishops and Priests. “Catholics are not automated robots and the Church hierarchy cannot dictate on us,” a prominent lay leader said. “This is the reason why the Catholic Church will not be the same as it was especially if its choice loses in the election,” he added.

      Some 92% of those surveyed also said they are already firm in their choice of candidates they will vote for and many have expressed their disgust at the house-to-house campaign launched by the Opposition.

      In the race for the vice presidency, Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte Carpio leads Senate President Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto III, 50% and 29%, respectively. Sen. Kiko Pangilinan is third at 9% and Dr. Willie Ong, came is fourth with 7%.  Buhay Party List Representative Joselito Atienza is in fifth with 2% and Lito David with .5%.

     Malay stressed that if this pattern will hold till election day on May 9, 2022 this will be the first time in a long while that the Philippines will have a president and vice president from the same team. The last time that the country elected a team to occupy the top two elective positions was in 2004 with the election of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Vice President Noli de Castro. # # #

Mike D Maintains Lead As He Tows

The Malayang Quezon City Team In What

Could Be The Biggest Upset In The Metro;

Allegation Of Corruption At City Hall
Turns Off 
Many Kyusi Voters

          QUEZON CITY --- Party List Representative Mike Defensor has stepped up his campaign picking up endorsements of the different business communities and civic organizations in the city steps to maintain his double-digit lead over incumbent Mayor Joy Belmonte in what could be the biggest electoral upsets in the metropolis.

         This development provided Defensor with a comfortable cushion over Belmonte as reflected in the recent Pulso ng Pilipino pre-poll survey conducted by The Issues and Advocacy Center (The Center) on April 4-15, 2022 with Defensor logging in with a solid 54% to Belmonte’s 37% or a clear 17% margin with only 5% saying they are still undecided on who between the two leading candidates for the mayoralty post will they vote for.

QC APRIL 4-15 GRAPHICS.jpg

     Defensor captured a wide section of the socio-economic class scoring heavily in the D class with 55% and E class with 57%. He also posted high numbers in the ABC class with 52% and was apparently the choice of voters in the 18 to 35 year old category.

     Veteran Kyusi politician Councilor Winnie Castelo continues to hold the edge in the vice mayoralty contest with 51% against the 34% of incumbent Vice Mayor Gian Sotto with 10% going to the other candidates and 5% are undecided.

  In the congressional elections for the six districts of this city, incumbent First District Rep. Onyx Crisologo has kept his comfortable lead of 20% over movie actor Arjo Atayde with Crisologo posting 53% against the 32% of the respondents who chose Atayde.

  The Center said Atayde could be suffering from the negative publicity surrounding celebrities who have not contributed anything once they are elected into office. Atayde has had no experience in the public sector whatsoever and voters are wary of candidates who are aspiring for serious and responsible position in government despite the abject lack of experience in the public sector.

  Incumbent second district Rep. Precious Hipolito Castelo with 56% still leads upstart Wendell Raffy Tulfo who posted 30%. Another incumbent Allan Benedict Reyes was the choice of 55% of the respondents in the third district or a clear 20% lead over the 31% posted by Councilor Franz Pumaren.

  The Center said it is in the fourth district where the elections for district representation is touch and go between incumbent Councilor Marvin Rillo (48%) against the incumbent district Rep. Bong Suntay (41%). Suntay now trails the darling of the masa who is poised to trounce a political giant in the fourth district. If ever, this will be the biggest upset in the congressional elections in the city if the current standings remain unchanged.

  It’s also a close contest in the city’s fifth district with businesswoman Rose Lin zooming past Patrick Michael Vargas 42% to 33%, respectively. Former first district Congressman Bingbong Crisologo is a cinch to bag the district representation in the sixth district with his huge 53% over the 36% posted by Councilor Marivic Co-Pilar.

  Information gathered by The Center also showed that majority of the employees at the Quezon City Hall have expressed their displeasure at the way the affairs of the city are currently being managed. They pointed to an official who heads four different departments that are tagged as money belts or the money making departments at the City Hall.

 

    The current city government is facing a serious backlash with a whistleblower who has decided to expose the irregularities related to the “ayuda” program of the city government. The graft case filed recently against the City Government is only the first of many other graft cases that are yet to be filed against the city administration, disgruntled employees of the city said.

    In addition to this, several employees of the city government claimed they were used as trolls but were not paid for their services. ###
