MANILA, Philippines—Administration candidates continued to have the edge in terms of voter preference, results of the latest Social Weather Stations survey show.

The survey, first reported in the BusinessWorld newspaper, found that nine candidates of the administration-backed Team PNoy had a statistical chance of winning a Senate seat if the elections were held in March.

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

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

As in previous surveys, Sen. Loren Legarda (NPC/Team PNoy) topped the latest SWS survey, with 59 percent of adults saying they would vote for her, down from 64 percent in the previous survey.

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano (NP/Team PNoy) was in 2nd place with 57 percent.

San Juan Rep. JV Ejercito (UNA) surged to third to fourth places from ninth to tenth places with 48 percent, tied with Sen. Francis Escudero (independent/Team PNoy, 48 percent). Escudero lost 14 percentage points and slipped from second to third place in the previous round.

Tied in fifth to seventh places were Nancy Binay (UNA), former Las Piñas Rep. Cynthia Villar (NP/Team PNoy) and Sen. Koko Pimentel (PDP-Laban/Team PNoy) with 47 percent.

Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV (NP/Team PNoy, 44 percent) was on 8th place, while Sen. Gringo Honasan (UNA) rose to 9th place with 43 percent, up from 15th place in the last survey.

President Aquino’s cousin Benigno Paolo “Bam” Aquino (LP, 42 percent) was on10th place, followed by former Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chief Grace Poe (independent/Team PNoy, 40 percent), who slipped to 11th place from fifth to sixth places in the previous survey.

Completing the winning circle was Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo Angara (LP, 39 percent), who was on 12th place.

The survey, conducted from March 15 to March 17, used face-to-face interviews with 1,200 registered voters nationwide and had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.

    Scary to find out that JV Ejercito and Nancy Binay- mga anak ng mga dakilang plunderer at mamatay tao are within the winning circle. Team P-Noy must use more negative ads and the socially responsible media outlets must do more to demolish these super kurakots.

    This SWS survey does not make sense. The survey was conducted between Mar 15 – 17. Many things happened just a few days before Mar 15. Logically, they should have registered in the ratings % of the candidates affected. Strangely enough, those that were negatively affected by the news registered even higher ratings % according to SWS.

    01. Overall, the ratings of the top 12 in terms of % have come down. Loren’s ratings are down from 60s. So with the other senatoriables. Loren has been campaigning well. So why the drop?

    02. On Mar 01, Malaysian troops started to kill Filipinos in Sabah. Disapproval of PNoy’s mishandling of the Sabah issue was overwhelming in various fora and news media. How could this not have a negative effect on Bam Aquino’s ratings in terms of %?

    03. The tiff between Senator Escudero and Heart’s parents only surfaced after Mar 17, a day or two after the SWS survey concluded its field work. How could Senator Escudero’s rating in % be negatively affected when the controversy happened after the survey was conducted?

    04. On Mar 13, the issue of Bam Aquino’s father Paul and his involvement in GMA’s cheating surfaced. How could this not have a negative effect on Bam Aquino’s ratings in terms of %?

    05. On Mar 12, Erap and Lim had their debate that turned ugly. How could this not have a negative effect on JV Ejercito Estrada’s ratings in terms of %?

    06. On Mar 17, Zubiri and Pimentel debate that turned ugly was aired in TV. How could this have affected Zubiri’s ratings in terms of % so quickly?

    07. On Mar 12, Zubiri came out exposing a survey company’s attempt to extort P1 million from him in exchange for favorable ratings. Zubiri declined and his ratings for this particular survey plunged. Should Zubiri have paid SWS survey?

    (source: malaya,com,ph/index.php/news/nation/26474-political-debate-turns-ugly-as-zubiri-lashes-pimentel)

    08. This SWS survey was commissioned by Business World which is partly owned by Manny Pangilinan. In exchange for PPPs, Manny is putting his support behind Team PNoy. But Manny is also careful not to antagonize the powerful Enrile by keeping Enrile’s son close to the top. As for JV in top 4, Manny remains grateful to Erap who once twisted Yuchengco’s arm to get the much-coveted PLDT shares for Manny.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

    Magsaysay and Hontiveros will still make it which will result into an 11-1 landslide win for Team PNoy. Its either JV Ejercito or Nancy Binay who will be the lone winner from UNA. This will make Team PNoy the dominant party in the Senate. Recto, Osmena or Drilon will become the next President of the Senate! Enrile will go to the dogs and he deserved it!

    • JohnDoeGB

      Asa ka pa! Hindi yan solid LP, coalition nga. Madidisintegrate yan months after the elections. At the end of the day, kanya-kanya silang partido… at since last 3 years na ni PNoy bubuo na naman yan ng bagong grupo, partido, coalition para sa 2016. Posturing at scheming uli.

  • calixto909

    It’s enlightening to note that majority of the Filipinos support the matuwid na daan program of Aquino through showing it when interviewed in this recent SWS survey.

    A hostile senate soon to be formed by UNA shall be the ominous sign for us Filipinos who pines for a better Philippines to be wary of and therefore galvanized our strength to campaign for straight Team Pnoy so that a hostile senate shall not have a place in the forthcoming senate

    • PinoyPower1

      By voting for Team Pnoy, we are ensuring that the gains of good governance be sustained and strengthened.

  • wakats

    I’m bothered and bewildered why the illegitimate son of a convicted plunderer is tied for 3rd and 4th places with chix. Likewise, the daughter of the “biglang’yaman” kuno from Makati whose only worthwhile credential is her family name – and nothing else. Finally, the coup plotter who almost brought the economy down during Cory’s era, not to mention the lost of lives and properties, is in the 9th place.

    It’s fortunate the election is still 50 days more and the people have ample time to determine who are most qualified to be our senators for the next 6 years….

      Let us help keep Binay, Ejercito, & Honasan out of the magic 12 by vigorously campaigning for TEAM PNOY candidates and exposing to the voters the ill-effects of electing inexperienced(Binay), corrupt (Binay & Ejercito) and selfish (Honasan) senators. How happy it will be if these 3 clowns named above will be replaced by principled, honest and capable people such as Jun Magsaysay, Hontiveros and perhaps either Hagedorn, Villanueva or Gordon. Let us not be passive and just wait for HEAVEN to help us put the right people in our senate.

  • talbosngkamote

    Natutuwa ako na lamang ang Team pNoy sa ratings. Una and the three kings are the very symbol of what makes politics so dirty and they shouldnt win. For me, Team pNOy/LP is the better choice.

    the Administration candidates should be in the lead. PNoy hasn’t done much work for the country but rather has spent his time campaigning for his Team PNoy…so if they weren’t in the lead then that would be a shocker.

    PNoy is in campaign mode and not President mode.

  • JasonBieber

    Of course Team PNoy will dominate. Think about it…look who their major campaigner is – none other than their leader PNoy. Team PNoy candidates should thank him for sacrificing his role as the President of the country in order to be the head of their campaign team.

  • talagalangha

    ….if the elections were held in March…eh kaso sumabulat ang Sabah crisis….hahaha, nahubarang bigla si Pnoy at ang yellow administration as anti-Filipino, pro-MAL ASIANS and TRAITORS….so there…pffffff! naglahong parang bula ang boto ng buong Mindanao,
    at kahit nandun si Pnoy sa mga rallies nila…NILALANGAW lang….paano pabibilibin ang mga tao na mananalo daw itong si Bam Aquino….hahaha!

    Si Sultan Kiram lang pala ang katapat ni Pnoy….yan ang tunay na lider, ung may buhok pa…!

After watching Bum in Mano Mano, I now know bakit umiiwas ang mga Aquino sa debate. Tinanong kung ano masasabi nya on how the Sabah issue was handled by the president and his answer was may mga negotiations nman na daw na nagaganap. Kasing talino nya ung mga boboto sa kanya.

  • eufems

    Now that Team PNoy is succeeding (but no Risa still) Noynoy should focus on being president and leave the campaigning to his pre-recorded TV ads. The ones where he speaks and sometimes sings and laughs :)

  • QritiQ

    It’s disappointing to note that Edward Hagedorn, Bro. Eddie Villanueva, and Greco Belgica have yet to break into the Magic 12. These gentlemen deserves to have their respective seats in the Senate. The incoming Senate will be “business as usual” if we don’t bring in new blood!

  • Concur_Dissent

    To help ensure the continuity of PNoy’s agenda, we need a senate that will not be confrontational. We should learn from the lessons of the US democracy…. Regardless of how sincere Obama is to lift the country out of its financial crisis, nothing seems to move them forward because of a divisive legislature….

    All these surveys will not matter if at the end of the day it’s the PCOS machines that will decide who the winners will be in the elections. Of all the issues re the upcoming elections, it is frustrating that perhaps the most important one is being ignored, the deficiency of the PCOS machines.

  • Kiro Nazakato

    P-noy and Senator Drillon, these are my campaign suggestions for Team P-noy.

    1. Your speeches should be organized with equal emphasis on your
    accomplishments, your endorsements local candidates, and endorsements of
    Team P-noy senatorial candidates.

    2. Your endorsements of your
    local candidates and senatorial candidates should have prepared text
    instead of extemporaneous, because doing it extemporaneously, you tend
    to allocate, unconsciously I know, uneven introductions. In Bicol for
    instance, you hardly said anything about the candidate for govenor,
    while saying too much about the candidates for lower positions. For your
    senatorial candidates, you said too much about some candidates, while
    hardly saying something about the other candidates. You seemed to be
    groping for words for some, while words came generously for some others
    I know that was not ever intentional. But I can imagine how perplexing
    and disconcerting this was for some candidates who travel with you,
    knowing how important your endorsements are in their candidacy. This is
    happening Mr. President because you are seem to do things, and
    everything by memory– or even off the cuff. Preparing the text ahead
    will avoid this.

    3. In your endorsement speeches, especially
    for senatorial candidates, please highlight the very important
    achievements and qualifications of each candidate, to ensure that one is
    given enough time. I suggest longer endorsement for senatorial
    candidates who are present, and shorter introductions for those who are
    absent.

    4. Introduce first for Senatorial Candidates those who
    are not yet in the magic 12( Magsaysay, Hontiveros, Madrigal, and to
    some extent Angara who was not very high in the surveys), because they
    need better your help. Please advice other all candidates to carry in
    their campaign materials the 12 candidates of Team P-noy.

    5.
    Can’t Senator Drilon not elicit better attendance in the succeeding
    campaigns? Sparse attendance may connote the team is not united, and
    that does not speak well of the coalition. Worse , it may be interpreted
    that you do not have control over your candidates. Or that some
    candidates are simplyself-absorbed, or matter-of-fact, just lack
    discipline. Imagine the other candidates working very hard, and Escudero
    just having grand time with Heart.( Overly confident?). Or Cayetano
    attending this and attending that, who cares? Things like this should
    not have place in the campaign.

    6. Can’t you have also at least a singer to come with you to sing in your campaign?

    7. Can’t Drilon and campaign tacticians-who are these guys anyway,
    Osmena, pangilinian Llamas- strategise and re-strategise, or brain-storm
    as you campaign to make sure that you get things better as you move on?
