In the 6th-12th places are former Senator Richard Gordon (32.7 percent) and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao (32.6 percent).

Those who have a “statistical chance” of making it in the “magic circle of 12” are Valenzuela Representative Sherwin Gatchalian (29.8 percent) and former Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) chief Joel Villanueva (29.8 percent).

Pulse Asia noted that less than two months before the May 9 polls, only 1 in 3 Filipinos has a complete slate for the senate elections.

Also, Filipinos identified a mean of seven and a median of eight of their preferred candidates in the Senate.

The survey has 4,000 respondents with biometric data and has a ± 1.5 percent margin of error at the 95 percent confidence level. JE
