Bongbong Marcos’ 60% Lead
SMNI commentator Mike Abe said that in the first place, VP Leni Robredo seems to know that the opposition is losing against Bongbong Marcos. This is the very reason why she ran. At 60% approval rate for BBM, the rest can never unite. They would only vie for the remaining 40%.
No Unity for the Opposition
Senator Ping Lacson is a veteran politician. He knows the problem of the opposition. They cannot win against Bongbong Marcos. That’s why he filed his presidential candidacy first. This way, he woun’t be pressured to withdraw if talks may happen for desperate measures.
The obvious Photoshop shots on the alleged crowds of Leni Robredo in the north covered by the mainstream and social media synchronically is a manifestation that they are desperate. The worst thing they could have done is faking the images of Bongbong Marcos’ events – just to retaliate to the accusations of real witnesses via social media. This made most Filipinos furious.
