MANILA, Philippines—Grace Poe-Llamanzares’  decision to exclusively campaign with Team PNoy proved to be the right decision as she moved up in the latest Social Weather Station poll, a week after being junked by the opposition United Nationalist Alliance, a spokesperson for the administration coalition said on Tuesday.

Marikina Representative Miro Quimbo also sounded more confident of Team PNoy achieving a 12-0 sweep in the mid-term senatorial elections as nine of its candidates made it to the SWS Magic 12 in February.

“We are elated likewise with the clear trend the survey numbers in the last two months have been showing: A clear trend towards a Team PNoy victory in the 13 May elections,” Quimbo told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

“While our candidates that were already in the magic 12 have maintained their ratings, those that have newly barged into the the magic 12, Grace Poe and Bam Aquino, are continuing to peak. The thee other candidates within striking distance are likewise peaking at the right time,” he added.

Poe-Llamanzares was a common candidate until the United Nationalist Alliance dropped her and consistent poll topnotchers Senators Loren Legarda and Francis Escudero from the opposition lineup last week.

UNA junked the three after they repeatedly failed to show up in UNA rallies while appearing in those of President Benigno Aquino III’s handpicked candidates.

“Grace Poe’s ratings just keep soaring. Her ratings only prove correct her decision to campaign exclusively with Team PNoy,” Quimbo said.

“She was able to jump from No. 13 in December 2012 to No. 5 today while only campaigning with Team PNoy. We anticipate her to keep improving her numbers over the next few weeks until the elections now that it has even become clearer that she is with Team Pnoy,” Quimbo added.

The latest SWS survey commissioned by Business World shows nine Team PNoy bets in the Top 12. They are Legarda (No. 1), Escudero (No. 2), Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano (No. 3), former Las Pinas Rep. Cynthia Villar (No. 4), Poe and Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III (tied for fifth and sixth), Sen. Antonio Trillanes (No. 8), Aquino (in a tie for ninth and 10th with San Juan Rep. JV Ejercito of UNA) and Aurora Rep. Sonny Angara (in a tie for the 11th and 12th places with former Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri).

The three UNA bets in the Top 12 are Nancy Binay at No. 7, Ejercito and Zubiri.

    More hard work and LP will prevail, wag sayangin ang napasimulan ng paglilinis sa mga kawatan ng gobyerno. It will take sometime para makamit ang pangarap ang mahalaga ay may nagsimula.

    With UNA’s Tatlong Hari…revisionist Enrile, convicted Erap, and all of a sudden very rich Bilionair Binay…How will UNA win against PNoy’s Daang Matuwid whose family of proven simple lifestyles is now added by a strong economic performance!

      mahaba pa ang eleksiyon. marami pang puputok na iskandalo, NFA rice smuggling, the Atimonan massacre, the PCSO overpayment, the potential escalation of the Sabah crisis, the Spratly shoal problem, just you wait.

  • No_U_Turn

    Ibagsak si Nancy Binay tsimay at si JV Ejercito-Estrada na mukhang anak ng driver.

    • 12JEM

      Please continue your characterization of Nancy Binay. And she will stay up there in the Majic 12.

      • indiosbravos2002

        Agree. Tsimay, Fil-Am blacks and Aeta communities are rooting for her.

    NANCY BINAY AT ZUBIRI:  MAGKANO ANG NAILABAS NINYO?

  • mabyrik

    The best news I heard in a week-to see Honasan and Jackie out of the magic 12. With still 2 months to go, JV and Nancy will also vanish.

    There should be no let up. Let us continue with our best efforts to inform the people that a vote for for UNA is a vote for impunity, corruption, murder and cheating.

    DO NOT VOTE FOR JACKIE, NANCY, JV, HONASAN, ZUBIRI.

    While I fully support the LP bets, Let us support also Mayor Edward Hagedorn with his advocacies for environment. let us all stop any form of Mining and logging that destroy our environment and our Country.

      My vote goes to Edward Hagedorn too. He did the country great honor by putting Puerto Princesa in the tourism map of the world.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/K2VH54C4AM2UFEVSVA7GDCNLVY Rizal

    I will campaign more actively for deserving candidates and will campaign aggressively against TRAPOS and cheats. I’d like to see Ejercito, Zubiri and Binay replaced by somebody competent, honest and honorable. Malinaw na kaya ng Pilipino ang matalinong pagboto. Paalam Lolong Enrile at Lolong Erap. About time to bury corruption this coming election. 

    • butchred

       brad isama mo na din na wag iboto si binay, bam aquino, trillanes, cayetano, hontiveros, pimentel, at enrile!

  • oidkcin

    I liken the candidates of both parties & all the politicians past and present led by the abnoydski pwesident, to the ayatollahs & ruhollahs. They are the paragons of virtues, good-mannered, can never do wrong, pure as white, smooth as silk Sons And Daughters Of B…..Talagang walang kabigin, puro itulak, lahat panapon ‘ika nga.
    Impeach Aquino….& her brother.

    • 33Sambuang2

      teka nga muna lagi na lang ganyan comment mong gunggong ka. si aquino i impeach plus brother nya? ano ka ba utak ebak ka kasi

  • rolandtr

    This trend is very good. But there is a zinger in the horizon. Maranatan case and the Atimonan ambush. The review seems to be taking very long. The same team who reviewed the Luneta Masacre are the same group doing this review now. Team PNoy will carry the brunt of voter’s frustration should the result of the review be the same as that of Luneta Masacre – white wash to protect some persons! Team Pnoy should be very vigilant over this zinger.

    Kadiri. Poe and Trilanes in the Senate is worst thing that could happen to the Philippines. Well, may be second only to Kris Aquino being declared a saint.

  • Garibaldi_II

    Good work lady. Beat Ms Binay. In politics, you’ll meet lots of people but only few become your friends. Good friends come by happenstance. Please remember function is better than form. Time is restless; it never stops – campaign as if there’s no tomorrow, and never promise the people any thing you can’t keep. Never, never buy votes. Be spectacular like the reflection of a full moon on the ocean.

    • patawad

      Correct!  The daughter is just being used to gain national consciousness of the name in preparation for the presidential election.  Kapal muks naman talaga mga Binay.
