BBM-Sara Tandem is No. 1
Malou Tiquia, political strategist and founder of Publicus Asia said that the BBM-Sara tandem is leading in their survey. Bongbong Marcos got 56.7% while Mayor Sara Duterte got 54%. This is for the President and Vice President positions respectively. Nov. 6 to 18 was the period of the survey. This was the time when the alliance emerged.
The More Petitions the Better for the Ratings
It seems that the more petitions, the better it is for the BBM-Sara tandem. They are now in the number one spot. Their gap to the second spot is too wide. Bongbong Marcos certainly got public sympathy from the petitions. There are now at least 3 petitions filed. However, Marcos also got 500 lawyer volunteers to defend him. The notable Attorney, Estelito Mendoza is one of them.
Mayor Sara’s Commitment to BBM
Despite the political strain Mayor Sara has with her father, she remains committed to Bongbong Marcos as his running mate. She divulges that she even tried to ask for PDP-Laban’s support for their tandem but they refused. Senator Imee Marcos also said that it was the presidential daughter’s suggestion for her brother to run for president. So, the BBM-Sara tandem emerged powerfully.
