MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – For the first time since 2022 Presidential Election polls began late last year, Vice President Leni Robredo has taken the lead over 4 of her closest rivals, including former Senator Bongbong Marcos.
In a newly-released survey commissioned by The Adobo Chronicles, Robredo was No. 1 at 51%, followed by Senator Ping Lacson at 23%. Manny Pacquiao came in 3rd with 15%, followed by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno with 9%. Marcos came in last at 2%.
Champagne flowed at the Office of the Vice President headquarters in Quezon City, in an apparent euphoria over this development that shocked many in the political arena, including those in the opposition themselves.
The survey, with a sample size of 3,000 asked just one question of the respondents:
“If the election were held today, which of the presidential candidates are you most likely not going to vote for?”
The survey has a margin of error of +/-2%.
