Bongbong Marcos is Ahead in Most Surveys
Whether ANC likes it or not, most of the political analysts they interviewed said that Bongbong Marcos is ahead in most credible surveys. He can’t also be disqualified as the leading presidential candidate. There are cases that the courts cannot decide. It’s in the hands of the people. This is what democracy is all about.
Hope for Robredo
Meanwhile, Vice President Leni Robredo’s trajectory is fast catching up. Her supporters can only hope that by May 2022, she can catch up with Bongbong Marcos’ votes. Therefore, it is not surprising for any personality to give the former senator a hard time like the bizarre notarized medical requirement of the Comelec.
However, many Marcos loyalists are amused by the Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon’s requirement after Bongbong Marcos failed to appear in person during the disqualification hearing. Strange as it may sound, it did trigger the mainstream media to cover BBM. They might think that they can assassinate his character by doing so. Nevertheless, people are now more aware that his detractors would not hesitate to do silly things just to destroy him. Thus, giving him sympathy for a greater election advantage.
