Philippine Elections: Grace Poe And Bongbong Marcos Emerge As Leaders In New Poll

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – If Philippine elections were held today, Senators Grace Poe and Bongbong Marcos would be elected president and vice president, respectively.

In a new poll conducted by The Adobo Chronicles, the Poe-Marcos pairing garnered 41.46% of the votes, compared to Rodrigo Duterte and Leni Robredo who got 29.27% to land in second place.

The unique poll paired presidential candidates with vice presidential aspirants of a political party other than their own.  The survey was premised on the fact that in Philippine presidential elections, voters can elect a president and vice president that belong to opposing parties. (Incumbent Vice President Jejomar Binay does not belong to the same party as President NoyNoy Aquino.)

In third place was the Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Gregorio Honasan with 19.51% of the votes.

The rest of the pairings garnered less than 5% each, with Binay and Chiz Escudero gaining 4.88%.  Mar Roxas and Alan Peter Cayetano were in the bottom with 2.44%, along with Antonio Trillanes who was not paired with any presidential candidate.
