The results, which were released on Monday, showed that Marcos got 60 percent followed by Vice President Leni Robredo at 15 percent.


“With the support of 60% of the country’s registered voters who are likely to cast their ballot in May 2022, former Senator Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. would be elected as the next Philippine president if the elections took place during the survey period,” Pulse Asia said in a statement.

“In second place is Vice-President Maria Leonor G. Robredo, whose own presidential bid is backed by 15% of likely voters,” it added.

Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso is in third place at 10 percent, followed by Senator Manny Pacquiao at eight percent. Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson got two percent.

Meanwhile, 0.51 percent is distributed among businessman Faisal Mangondato, labor leader Leody de Guzman, and lawyer and doctor Jose Montemayor Jr.

Four percent of the respondents were undecided, refused to vote, or will vote for none.

Moreover, Pulse Asia asked respondents who their second choice would be, should their preferred candidate withdrew his/her candidacy.

Results showed that Moreno has the highest second-choice voter preference at 26 percent followed by Pacquiao at 13 percent and Robredo at 12 percent.
