Top Choice for President
Bongbong Marcos still emerges as the top choice for President in the 2022 elections. The recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey said. Marcos got 47 percent in the October 20-23 period. Vice President Leni Robredo advances to the 2nd spot with 18 percent.
Robredo Advances to the 2nd Spot
Robredo said that Marcos’s preparation for his presidential bid lasts already 6 years. But she just decided recently. Despite that, she still beats the other contenders and lands at the 2nd spot. This scenario can very well lead to their repeat rivalry in 2016.
Developments after Survey Period
However, various developments unfold after the November 15 deadline for substitution. It was a relief for many Marcos loyalists that Mayor Sara Duterte becomes the official running mate of Marcos for VP. His father endorses Bong Go as President. He expresses his sentiments about not being told about his daughter’s plan. Nevertheless, Inday Sara stresses that she even asked PDP-Laban to support the Bongbong-Sara tandem but they refused.
