MANILA — PDP-LABAN standard bearer and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte topped anew the Pulse Asia’s latest voters’ preference survey, leading Sen. Grace Poe by seven percentage points.
The survey was commissioned by ABS-CBN and was conducted from April 5-10.
It covered 4,000 registered voters nationwide, with an error margin of plus minus 1.5 percent.
Duterte established a clear lead with 32 percent, which is a two-point increase from his previous ratings in the March 29-April 3 survey.
Poe, meanwhile, trailed behind with only 25 percent. She was followed by UNA presidential bet Vice President Jejomar Binay with 20 percent and Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas, who got 18 percent.
Duterte was the top choice among all voting classes and remains to be the number one candidate in Mindanao, where he got 58 percent or more than half of the respondents’ total votes.
The former’s campaign team said while it is humbled by the latest survey results, it will continue to reach out to more voters.
“We need to convert and convince others that the path to real change is through the unparalleled and decisive leadership that Mayor Duterte has been providing us,” said Duterte’s national campaign manager Leoncio Evasco, Jr., PNA/northboundasia.com
