MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just hours after the airing of the Jessica Soho interviews with the 2022 Philippine presidential candidates, many Filipinos shifted their support from Vice President Leni Robredo to Senator Manny Pacquiao.
The interviews, aired on GMA network, featured four presidential aspirants — Ping Lacson, Isko Moreno, Pacquiao and Robredo.
A quick survey conducted by The Adobo Chronicles showed that supporters of Robredo believed everything that their idol says — and said during the interviews — including her statement that if she weren’t running for the presidency, she would vote for Pacquiao.
Apparently, many Robredo fans didn’t hear the first part of Soho’s question — “if you weren’t running for president.”
The survey also revealed that some Robredo supporters shifted to Pacquiao after they were disillusioned by the Vice President’s responses to another Soho question regarding one-word description of photos flashed on screen. All of Robredo’s responses in that segment were more than one word.
