‘Almost there’ — Leni Robredo over jump in latest SWS poll

“Malapit na! Masaya tayo ngayong abot-kamay na natin ang pinagsisikapan natin na unang puwesto sa survey,” Robredo said in a statement on Monday.
“Ang magandang balitang ito ay bunsod ng sakripisyo ng ating mga tagasuporta, pamilya at mga kaibigan na walang pagod na naglalaan ng kanilang panahon at pawis sa ating pag-iikot sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng Pilipinas,” she added.
In the survey conducted last March 4 to 7, it showed Robredo closing in to Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, who maintained his lead at 28 percent, and Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. with 26 percent.
From last month’s 19 percent, Robredo garnered 24 percent of votes from 1,800 respondents.
The results, according to Robredo, gave her renewed inspiration and strength to continue presenting her plans for the people even in the far-flung parts of the country.
“Sa resultang ito, nabigyan tayo ng panibagong inspirasyon at lakas sa paghahatid ng ating adbokasiya, plano at programa hanggang sa pinakamalalayong lugar sa bansa lalo na sa mga nasa laylalayan,” she said.
Next to Robredo at fourth place is Senator Alan Peter Cayetano with 11 percent, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV with 6 percent and Senator Gringo Honasan with 5 percent.
Meanwhile, her running mate Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas also gained four points with 22 percent but still trailing behind Senator Grace Poe and Vice President Jejomar Binay who got 27 percent and 24 percent, respectively.
“Asahan ninyong lalo pa nating pagsisipagan, paghuhusayan at paiigtingin ang ating pag-iikot sa huling walong linggo ng kampanya,” Robredo added.
