MANILA, Philippines — Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio and President Rodrigo Duterte led the list of Filipinos’ top bets for president and vice president in Pulse Asia’s 2022 national elections survey.

According to Pulse Asia on Tuesday, the survey was conducted on 2,400 respondents from June 7 to 16.


Presidential bets

Pulse Asia said that the face-to-face surveys indicated that Duterte-Carpio remains the most preferred candidate, with 28 percent of the respondents voting for her if elections were held on the day they were interviewed.

At second place on the list is Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso (14 percent), almost tied with former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, at 13 percent.

Meanwhile, 10 percent of the respondents want to vote for Senator Grace Poe; 8 percent for Senator Manny Pacquiao, 6 percent for Vice President Leni Robredo; and 4 percent for Senator Panfilo Lacson.

The other personalities included in the presidential survey registered voter preferences of 3 percent at most.

Additionally, 8 percent of Filipinos are either undecided as to who their preferred candidate is, refuse to name their favored candidate, or don’t support anyone.

Potential vice president

The survey listed Duterte as the top choice for VP at 18 percent but is almost tied with Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso at 14 percent.

“If the May 2022 elections took place during the survey period, President Rodrigo R.  Duterte and Manila Mayor Domagoso would find themselves in a tight race for the vice presidential post,” Pulse Asia said in its report.

The two are followed by Senate President Vicente Sotto III at 10 percent, and Marcos at 10 percent; Pacquiao, 9 percent; Taguig City-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, 8 percent; and Sorsogon Gov. Francis Escudero, 7 percent.

Other possible candidates for vice-president each record first-choice voter preferences of at most 5 percent.


The rest of the respondents, or 6 percent, are still undecided.

One politician who had a notable increase among possible senatorial bets is Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, with a voting-for percentage increase of 5.2%. This is the highest increase among all the names mentioned for senator.
