Gaining three points from the last BusinessWorld-SWS poll in February, Poe got 27 percentage points in the March 4 to 7 survey, which was done before the March 8 ruling of the Supreme Court which cleared her to run for the May election.

Poe overtook Binay for the top spot after the Vice President lost five points and went down to 24 percent, landing him in second place.

Roxas got the biggest boost gaining four points, rising to 22 percent and the third place.

Meanwhile, Duterte slumped three points down to 21 percent and sliding to fourth place. Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago again got four points and still ranked fifth.
