Duterte widens lead in final pre-election SWS survey
Four days before the national elections, presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte widens his lead in the final Social Weather Station survey.
The results published on BusinessWorld late Thursday revealed 33 percent would vote for the controversial Davao City mayor.
The BusinessWorld-SWS pre-election survey was conducted May 1 to May 3 through face-to-face interviews with 4,500 validated voters nationwide with a sampling error margin of ± 1 point.
The rating of his closest contender, Senator Grace Poe, slipped to 22 percent from 24 percent from the preceding April 18-20 survey.
The score of Liberal Party standard bearer Manuel A. Roxas II’s remains at 20 percent from 19 percent.
Vice-President Jejomar C. Binay, who recently said he doesn’t believe in surveys anymore, slipped to 13 percent from 14 percent.
Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago still got 2 percent flat from her previous score.
The report said four percent were undecided. TVJ
