Presidential aspirant Grace Poe remained confident that on Election Day, May 9, voters will choose the right leader for the country.

“Ginagalang natin ang mga survey at gagamitin itong gabay sa patuloy na paglilibot sa buong bansa (We respect the survey results and will use them as we continue to go around the whole country),” Poe said in a statement on Tuesday, reacting to the latest Pulse Asia survey commissioned by ABS-CBN.

She said her attention is focused on programs that would end poverty in the country and improve the lives of the Filipino people.

“Nakatuon ang ating atensyon sa mga programa na susugpo sa kahirapan at magpapabuti sa kalagayan ng ating mga kababayan (We are focused on programs that will eradicate poverty and improve the lives of our countrymen),” said Poe.

“Naniniwala ako na sa araw ng halalan, pipili ang mga botante ng isang lider na makatao at may galing, para sa kabutihan ng buong bansa (I am confident that on Election Day, the people will choose a leader who is humane and competent for the good of our country),” she added.

The survey conducted from April 5 to 10 among 4,000 respondents showed Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte as the voters’ top choice for president.

Duterte widened his lead from his rivals with 32 percent. He was followed by Poe with 25 percent, Vice President Jejomar Binay with 20 percent, former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas with 18 percent and Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago with one percent. IDL
