MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Yesterday, we reported that according to a soon-to-be-released national poll by the Social Weather Networks (SWS), there is a four-way tie among declared and potential 2016 presidential candidates Grace Poe, Mar Roxas, Jojo Binay and Rodrigo Duterte.
To confirm the poll results, we conducted our own informal survey among our readers.
Lo and behold, we have a significantly different result.
Duterte, the candidate that has not officially declared his presidential bid, topped our survey with an overhwelming 48% of the votes — 26 (22%) and 29 (19%) points ahead of Roxas and Poe, respectively. Vice President was dead last at 11%.
With a margin of error of plus or minus 3%, Roxas and Poe are in a statistical tie.
Will Duterte now change his mind and finally declare his run for the presidency?
