Duterte stays at number one in the final SWS survey
This might be the face of your next president.
(SPOT.ph) Could Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte be our next president? If the final pre-election survey of the Social Weather Stations is to be believed, that seems to be the case.
According to the results published on BusinessWorld on Thursday, May 5, 33% would vote for the controversial tough-talking mayor.
He has widened his lead over closest rival Sen. Grace Poe, whose rating slipped to 22% from 24% in the previous survey, conducted on April 18 to 20.
Administration standard bearer Mar Roxas’ rating, meanwhile, stays at 20%. Vice President Jejomar Binay slipped one point from the previous poll to 13%, while Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago still trails behind with 2%.
In the vice presidential race, Sen. Bongbong Marcos and Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo are virtually tied. Marcos got a 29% rating, statistically tied with administration bet Robredo, who obtained 28%. Both candidates’ scores increased—four points and two points, respectively—from the previous survey.
Sen. Francis Escudero’s rating dropped three points to 15%, as did Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, who obtained 13%. Senators Gregorio Honasan and Antonio Trillanes IV both received 3% ratings.
Around 4,500 validated voters nationwide were surveyed in the May 1 to 3 BusinessWorld-SWS poll, with a sampling error margin of ± 1 point.
