Duterte, Roxas won Cebu debate—INQUIRER.net Facebook, site polls
TWO opinion polls posted by INQUIRER.net yielded different winners of the second presidential debate which was held in Cebu City on Sunday.
In the poll posted on the INQUIRER.net’s Facebook page, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte was chosen by the 83 percent of voters as the winner of the Cebu presidential debate.
His rivals only got single-digit numbers: administration bet Manuel “Mar” Roxas got 8 percent, Senator Grace Poe got 6 percent while Binay was in last place at 4 percent.
Duterte has secured the lead since the start of the debate on Sunday night and maintained it until Monday morning.
At least 131, 647 voters participated in the INQUIRER.net’s Facebook poll.
Meanwhile, the result was different in the INQUIRER.net’s poll which was posted on its website. The results of the survey showed that more readers believed that it was Roxas who won the second presidential debate.
As of 4:40 p.m. on Monday, Roxas got 39.69 percent or 10, 545 votes. He is followed by Duterte at 29.9 percent or 7,969 votes. Trailing behind them were Poe who got 28.14 percent (7, 665 votes) and Binay with only 2.27 percent (603 votes).
During Sunday’s debate, Duterte and Roxas exchanged tirades as the feisty mayor called the former Interior secretary as a “fraud” and a “pretentious leader.”
On his part, Roxas slammed Duterte for his brand of justice.
The debate started one-and-a-half hours behind schedule after Binay insisted bringing notes at the podium―an act barred by organizer Commission on Elections.
The three-hour debate was hosted by TV5 and Philippine Star. AJH
