Sotto calls latest Pulse Asia survey showing Sara Duterte’s lead a ‘good guide’
MANILA, Philippines — Senate President Vicente Sotto said that the latest Pulse Asia survey for the 2022 presidential and vice presidential race is a good guide for that particular week.
In a short statement sent by Sotto to INQUIRER.net on Wednesday, he said that the survey by Pulse Asia — done from December 1 to 6, 2021, is a snapshot of that week.
“Good guide. It’s a snapshot of that particular week,” Sotto said in a text message.
Sotto, who is running for the vice presidency with Senator Panfilo Lacson as his running mate, was overtaken by fellow vice presidential aspirant and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
The Senate President got 30 percent of the respondents’ vote, if elections were held on that day. Dutete-Carpio on the other hand got 45 percent.
For the presidential race, former senator Bongbong Marcos leads the presidential race with 53 percent of the respondents picking him. He was followed by Vice President Leni Robredo who got 20 percent of the respondents’ votes, and then Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Senator Manny Pacquiao who are at a statistical tie with both getting eight percent.
