SWS survey: 9 administration candidates in Magic 12



Administration candidates were off to a good start in dominating the senatorial race early in the campaign period, a recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey found.

Nine candidates of the administration-backed Team PNoy had a statistical chance of winning a Senate seat if the elections were held on Feb. 15-17, results of the SWS survey showed.

Team PNoy is an alliance of candidates from the Liberal Party (LP), Nacionalista Party (NP), Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), PDP Laban and Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP).

Only three candidates of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) made it to the list of probable winners.

The election period officially started on Jan. 13, but campaigning for Senate seats began on Feb. 12.

Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV (LP/Team PNoy, 42 percent), first cousin of President Aquino, broke into the list of winning candidates for the first time in four election surveys, taking  the ninth to 10th spot. He was up from 15th place in the January survey in which he obtained 34 percent.

Also winning a spot after being edged out in the past two surveys was Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo “Sonny” M. Angara (LDP/Team PNoy, 39 percent), who ranked 11th to 12th—up one spot in the previous survey where he placed 13th also with 39 percent.

Enrile, Honasan fall

It was a big fall for UNA candidates Jack Enrile (38 percent) and Sen. Gringo Honasan (34 percent), who were both dislodged from the previous survey’s winning list.

Jack Enrile, the son of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, slipped to 13th place from 8th to 9th in the previous survey in which he got 46 percent.

Honasan fell to 15th place—down from his fifth to sixth ranking in the January survey in which he obtained 48 percent.

As in the past two surveys, Sen. Loren Legarda (NPC/Team PNoy) topped the latest SWS survey, with 64 percent of adults saying they would vote for her, one percentage point down from 65 percent in the January survey.

Also staying in their rankings for the past three surveys were Sen. Chiz Escudero (independent/Team PNoy, 62 percent) and Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano (NP/Team Pnoy, 58 percent), who occupied the second and third places, respectively.

Occupying the fourth spot was the wife of outgoing Sen. Manny Villar, former Las Piñas Rep. Cynthia Villar (NP/Team PNoy, 53 percent).

Both in fifth to sixth place were former Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chief Grace Poe (independent/Team PNoy, 48 percent) and Sen. Koko Pimentel (PDP-Laban/Team PNoy, 48 percent).

In seventh place was Nancy Binay (UNA, 47 percent), followed by Sen. Sonny Trillanes (NP/Team PNoy, 46 percent) in eighth place.

Sharing the ninth to tenth place with Aquino was JV Ejercito (UNA), who also got 42 percent.

Also in 11th to 12th place with Angara was former Bukidnon Rep. Juan Miguel Zubiri (UNA), who obtained 39 percent.

Aside from Enrile and Honasan, those who barely made it to the list were former Sen. Jamby Madrigal (LP/Team PNoy, 36 percent), former Sen. Ramon Magsasay Jr. (LP/Team PNoy, 32 percent) and former Sen. Richard Gordon (UNA, 31 percent)

The poll outfit said 47 percent of respondents chose a full slate of 12 candidates; 2 percent were either undecided or did not have an answer; and 4 percent had invalid ballots.

The noncommissioned survey used face-to-face interviews with 1,200 registered voters nationwide and had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.—Inquirer Research

  • mabyrik

    Today, it’s 9-3, in favor of Team-Pnoy against “Team tatlong-Kurakot”. Good over evil, Decency over impunity, Transparency over obscurity. 

    May I ask please? Can black win over white? No way!!! It won’t happen and it certainly will not happen in this mid-term election. The sign is very clear and it is very obvious at this moment in time.

    Tomorrow, it could be 12-0 or 11-0-1. But the other survivor will not come from UNA. Who knows, Hagedorn or Villanueva may be it but not anyone from UNA. 

    As most nets are saying, as the election fever heats up, LP is getting hotter by the day while UNA is freezing by the day and night because more and more people are becoming more aware how obnoxious and corrupt this “Team 3 kurakot” is. The nightmare of a powerful “Team 3-kurakot” is for real and is sending a chilling effect to each every decent member of our society.

    Binay questions the latest survey. To Binay, the survey is wrong because 9 Team Pnoy candidates made it but it is correct in placing Nancy’s in # 7 position. This kind of reasoning exposed how obscure Binay’s mind is. 

    I can’t forget how he jumped up and down like a crazy chimpanzee on earlier surveys showing UNA’s dominance. It was the time when people are not yet aware how rotten the UNA candidates are but the time is changing.

    Netizens, let us work harder to give UNA ZERO slot in this election. We can do it and we have 2 months to do it. We can show to this Team 3 kurakot” that voters are now awake and they will not be swayed by dynastic names alone.

  • AllaMo

    1,200 registered voters nationwide is not a (very) representative sample. Ergo, the survey is no better and no worse than kwentong barberya. And, should only be taken with a block of salt.

    • kulittwit

      Mag aral ka muna ng statistics hijo. SWS surveys have been tested and proven in all previous elections as accurate with the outcome.

      • AllaMo

        In a nation of, at least, 52million registered voters, (without going into the intricacies of stratification) how can a sample of 1200 be representative. Hindi ka naman siguro uto. At, kung uto-uto ka man, sarilinin mo na lang. Saan ka ba nagaral nang statistics mo, hija, sa SWS?

      • kulittwit

         Halatang nagmamarunong ka lang. Sa US, more than 200 million ang botante pero ang mga surveys ganun din ang sample size ranging from 1500 to 2500.

        Again, SWS survey results have been tested and proven in the results of previous elections.

    Para sa mga nagpapaniwalang maige sa mga survey at statistics ang USA ay isa sa mayayamang bansang maraming magagaling sa mga ganitong props at karamihan sa kanila ay analyst sa Wall Street, pero lahat ng kanilang kagalingan walang nagawa sa Recession dinanas ng USA. Ang katothanan, lahat ng survey at statistics magkaminsan pumapalpak. Kaya mga nangunguna o kulelat sa mga election surveys at statistics your only salvation is to work hard to win the hearts and minds of the electorate, electorate nowadays know who you are,  people are becoming educated and almost sure could not be persuaded by the vested interest of the commissioners (people who commissioned the surveys.) 

  • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

    Who commissioned the SWS survey?
    MVP through his Business World.

    What goodies did MVP receive?
    01. DENR lifts ban on Philex mining activities.
    02. DOTC awards Mactan Airport expansion to MVP while disqualifying San Miguel Corp.
    03. MVP bags Palawan Oil contract.

    How does MVP influence elections and politics in PH?
    01. He owns PDI and can use PDI to influence and condition voters’ minds.
    02. He owns Business World and commission paid surveys on behalf of his manok.
    03. He owns TV5 and can use his TV / radio stations to make or break candidates.
    04. He owns Smart-PLDT and can tap your calls. Hello Garci anyone?

      Spitfire, to complain and to act are two different things. Obviously, you didnt vote for PNOY but you were probably counting on GMA’s candidates to win.
      People who are okay with corruption will always hate PNOY. First thing they do is call him abnoy or panot. It shows the level of intelligence most Filipinos have.

      I respect you opinion spitfire but that doesnt mean it holds water at all.

    Binay rejected this “unbelievable” survey. Binay believed it when he was reported to be leading Roxas during the close of campaign period in 2010.  When it gives negative report, it must have been paid by the other side. When favorable, it is the pulse of the people. This attitude revealed the kind of person our VP is and the people who have reacted in similar manner.

  • geminimind

    A margin of error plus and minus 3 percentage points is not accurate.To me is 25 % margin of error because the people who got intervieved are not honest.
    They’re just trying to make it “sweet in front of radio/tv cameras or good looking interviewers”.

    • lee1222

      Clearly, you have no idea what a “margin of error” is, statistically speaking.

      Further, the people who were interviewed were neither in front of a camera nor a radio monitor.

      Finally, how were you able to come up with the conclusion that “the people who got interviewed are no honest”? I assume you’ve met at least 25% of the 1,200 survey respondents?

      • geminimind

        why don’t you join the survey to see for your self most of the time,they’re just guessing plus or minus 1% margin of error.

      Better check how the surveys of SWS and Pulse Asia fared with the actual results in previous elections. You would be surprised that their surveys have been quite accurate.

      Second, if SWS and Pulse Asia are as fake as you would want to believe, how come they’re still very much in business? You may want to file the case against them yourself, in which case I wish you good luck.

    Ang panalo lang dyan e yung gumagawa ng survey. Imagine P1.9 million ang sinisingil sa bawat kandidatong nagpapasurvey. That was revealed by Toby Changco over DzMM. He was interviewed by Karen Davila. Very lucrative business itong survey kapag mag-e-election.

      Nope. SWS and Pulse Asia do both commissioned and non-commissioned surveys. In the case of the senatoriables, this is a non-commissioned survey.

      And even if it indeed costs P1.9M to have a survey in one’s favor, don’t you think Jack Enrile and Jamby Madrigal could well afford it?

      • Rathbumo

        Depende yan sa nagpapa-survey. Very obvious na ang nagpasurvey dyan is yung Team PNOY for the simple reason that 9 out of 12 Team PNOY Candidates e pasok sa Magic 12. Yung tatlong nahulog, sila yung mga hindi pumapasok sa winning circle. Mahahalata naman kung 12-0 in favor of Team PNOY ang resulta ng survey. Hindi na kapanipaniwala yun. As the campaign heats up, expect the unexpected. Later on, trending na yan up to election time.

    Ang mas mabuting balita ay malaglag na sana lahat ng mga kandidato ng Liberal at UNA!!!

  • Trollollolloll

    Tss..pa survey survey at pa eleksyon eleksyon pa kayo. Lol. Para naman may magbabago sa Pilipinas pagkatapos ng eleksyon. Kahit sino pa manalo diyan at sa lahat pa ng mga eleksyon, hindi na magbabago ang Pilipinas. Move on with your lives.

    • nakawan

      Exactly. I wish one day matauhan ng mga mahihirap na kahit sino man binoto nila, wala naman sa kanilang nagpayaman o napagandahan ang buhay ng mahihirap. Tama na dapat yung para sa mahirap, para sa bansa naman.

    UNA Big 3 are one of the most corrupt people in the Philippines. So why we are going to vote for them or to their candidates…They will just become the WORST Corruptors in our History same like Gloria & Mike Arroyo. Just imagine folks…all their sons and daugther will be in power (Senate, congress, etc.) and they can do anything they want. BEWARE mga kababayan, Do not vote for UNA and the BIG-3 TRAPOS!

    • Phoenix_Shadow

      excuse me po…. wala po akong bayad, isang plain citizen lang po na umaasa sa magandang takbo ng ekonomiya ng PIlipinas mula sa Admin ni Pnoy dahil sa anti-corruption measures niya. Natatakot na baka makapasok ang mga taga UNA na lam muna ang AGENDA. Ayaw din namin kay Villar. Makapasok nawa sina Hagedorn at Villanueva kasama ang 10 Team PNOY pero syempre walang UNA at si Villar.

    laki ng tinaas ni Bam Aquino ha. from 15th to 9th. At least nag pay off yung hard work niya. Napansin ko kasi na nagstep siya and his camp. Good work.

  • josephsanchez

    the dropouts from yesteryears shows a big difference on today’s election. I just hope madrigal will have still have the capacity to win and godon as well!

    kawawa naman ang PILIPINas pag ang kaisa isang independent body na lang na senate makokontrol pa ni ABNOY. tingnan mo ung nangyayari sa Sabah walang paninindigan ang persidente na tulungan ang kanyang mga kakabayan kung sa US lang yan baka pinadalhan p ng aid ung mga kababayan nila dun at di ginigipit ano ieexpect mo sa sa institusyon natin maging sunod sunuran na lang sa Presidente. Sige ituloy yang 12- 0 na yan ng LP bansa ang magiging kawawa. Mas gugustuhin ko pa pamunuan ng mga sinasabi nyong korrupt pero may pagmamahal sa bansa kesa sa pamumuno na ultimo kababayan e di maipagtanggol. Mabuhay ang 12 – 0.

    Teodoro Casiño
    – despite being a congressman still poor. No corruption issues.  An advocate of the poor.

    Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel
    – to advance women’s rights in the senate.

    Eddie Villanueva –His
    experience tells he is pro-poor be it as a communist or as a pastor.

    Richard Gordon – has political will. A great

    Edward Hagedorn – preserved Puerto Princesa, pro-environment
    and has political will.

    Aquilino Pimentel III – knows what
    it felt to be cheated. He will champion political reforms.

    Grace Poe – She was raised by a
    great father. She has a lot of potential to improve political reforms as she is
    exposed with how his father was cheated during the election.

    JC de los Reyes – non trapo and God-fearing.

    Antonio Trillanes IV – knows how
    corrupt the military is. I will give him one more chance to do what he needs to

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/VUT4YW36QJREEGOBH5IYKNQMKI Kokak

      He shouldnt be in the senate in the first place. Have you remembered how many civilians were killed when he launched a coup in 1987. Hindi nya matanggap na sina Cory ang nakaupo sa poder imbes na sila ni Enrile.

      What we cannot forgive was when his “reformist” group fired on unarmed civilians who merely showed support for the govt at the time.

      Sabi ng mga taga Escopa, bakit ang bahay ni Honasan ang ganda, bakit ang sa amin bulok….pumunta ka nga sa may boundary ng Marikina at Quezon City…. duon sa Major Dizon na may Bistekville III kuno !!!!!  Huwag kang masyadong mangmang !!!!

  • JasonBieber

    These surveys mean nothing. All that matters is if, when, or how the PCOS machines screws up on election day. The tests runs they’ve done have all been a big fail and nothing has been done to fix and resolve the problems.

    PNoy i’m sure is happy with this result but it doesn’t change the fact that the Philippines has problems with China, Sabah, and with the victims of typhoon ‘Pablo’ in davao being ignored.

  • Santosark

     sana hindi pa huli ang lahat kay madrigal. sana ndi manalo ang mga hindi dapat manalo. hay nako. oras nanaman para makipagbanggaan sa mga politikong hndi nagpapatinag kahit wala namang gngwanag mabuti para sa iba

      Bakit lumabas si Nancy Binay ay mas sikat pa kay Trillanes ? At si JV ay equal kay Bam na pareho kong hindi iboboto ?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/VUT4YW36QJREEGOBH5IYKNQMKI Kokak

    Minsan magtataka ka rin sa mga pilipino, sa panahong ito na dapat may kaliwanagan na ang pagiisip eh meron pa ring boboto sa kandidating iniindorso ni Erap, Binay at Enrile.

  • Simplify1

    Latest Commission on Audit report…. Senators Enrile and Estrada contributed no less than 186,000,000.00 pesos PDAF (pork barrel) to FAKE GOCC!!  Talagang karumal-dumal!!  We can expect more of these SHINANIGANS once we add one more Enrile and one more Ejercito to the senate roll call!! MAGHUNOS DILI TAYO MGA KABAYAN!!!

    Mas sikat pa si Nancy kay Trillanes ?   Ganito na ba katanga ang mga Pilipino ngayon ?

  • http://rltjs.wordpress.com/ Rod

    Frankly I don’t see any difference in administration and opposition candidates.

    That points more in the way of status quo. It is a simple matter of putting 12 names in the ballots, for the simple Filipinos. Better name wins.
