MANILA – UniTEAM standard bearers Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Sara “Inday Sara” Duterte-Carpio were the top choices for President and Vice President, respectively, among the 1,500 registered Filipino voter respondents to the PAHAYAG: National Election Tracker Survey conducted between February 11-16, 2022.
Former senator Marcos earned 52 percent of the vote for President, while Davao City Mayor Duterte-Carpio earned almost 54 percent of the vote for Vice President.
Meanwhile, the standard bearers of the opposition slate placed second in both races. Incumbent Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo earned 22 percent of the vote for President, while Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan earned almost 14 percent of votes for Vice President.
In the presidential race, Robredo was followed by third-place Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, who earned almost 9 percent of the vote. An additional 9 percent of respondents said they were undecided about their presidential preference. Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson (3.27%), Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao (2.67%), and labor leader Ka Leody De Guzman (0.67%) rounded out the top six.
In the vice-presidential race, Pangilinan’s 13.67 percent vote share was followed closely by “Doc Willie” Ong (12.6%) and Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III (9.2%). Almost nine percent of voters said they were undecided about their vice-presidential preference. Congressman Jose “Lito” Atienza rounded out the top six, earning just a little over one percent of the vote.
