Marcos and Robredo may have second round in 2022.
Bongbong Marcos Won’t Go Toe to Toe with Sara
Analysts say that a second round for Bongbong Marcos and Leni Robredo is more likely in 2022. There may be some traits that people cannot find in Robredo. But Marcos also has to brush up on his family’s black propaganda. There’s only one thing that Marcos is sure of. He won’t go against Sara Duterte. Needless to say, the rivalry is unlikely.
Robredo’s Electoral Protest Win Did Not Change Anything
The noises from Robredo’s camp that usually malign Bongbong Marcos are signs that they desperately have to work harder to topple a silent Marcos. Nevertheless, despite her favorable ruling from the PET, the majority of the people are still skeptical about her. She is still the fake VP for many. So, more talks from her mean more distrusts. Just like the shallow water scenario.
Bongbong Marcos-Sara Duterte-Carpio Tandem
The Marcos loyalists must trust that there would be no Bongbong-Sara head-on collision. Marcos assures his supporters in an interview. His alliance with the Dutertes is stronger than what most people think. Therefore, it is best not to perceive them as political rivals. There may be truth in the analysis that the Marcos loyalists who attack Sara and vice versa are just pretending to be their supporters. In actuality, they are actually the strategy of the Dilawans. This is to disunite them and scatter the votes elsewhere.
