President Duterte Asks o take his name out of surveys
Two Mayors for 2022 Election
Mayor Sara Duterte-Capio leads the early Pulse Asia survey for presidents in the 2022 election. Bongbong Marcos, Grace Poe, Manny Pacquiao, and another mayor, Isko Moreno is next. The President’s daughter also asks not to include his name in the surveys. Speculations say that his daughter has a high rating because of his popularity. However, Mayor Sara already said that she’s not running for president. But maybe Vice President. So, this makes the Marcos-Duterte tandem alive again.
Popularity is Not Transferrable
A Political analyst said that Mayor Sara gets the highest rate, not because of her father’s popularity. President Rodrigo Duterte may have a 91% approval rate. Not all voters of the President will vote for his daughter. He cannot just endorse Mayor Sara. Because his popularity is not transferrable. But what if Marcos runs for president along with Inday Sara for Vice President?
Where’s the Dilawan?
The sitting Vice President Leni Robredo is in the 6th place only for possible presidential candidates. It’s because the administration perceives the Dilawan as the enemy. Robredo is the symbol of the Dilawan. So, if there’s another Marcos-Robredo face off in 2022, where would Robredo be?
