Duterte at 2nd spot in Pulse Asia survey

Despite saying he was not running for President, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte landed in a three-way tie at second place, in the latest survey for presidential preference by Pulse Asia.

Independent candidate Senator Grace Poe led Pulse Asia’s “Ulat ng Bayan” survey conducted nationwide from September 8 to 14 with 2,400 respondents.

Poe garnered 26 percent.

Sharing the second spot in a ‘statistical tie’ are ruling  Liberal Party’s Manuel “Mar” Roxas II (20 percent), the opposition United Nationalist Alliance standard bearer Vice President Jejomar Binay (19 percent) and Duterte (16 percent).

The survey had Duterte leading in Mindanao (29 percent); Poe the favorite  in Metro Manila (26 percent) and Luzon (31 percent); and Roxas grabbing the votes in the Visayas (34 percent),

The most preferred presidential aspirant across socio-economic classes is Poe at 22 percent  followed by Roxas, Duterte then Binay.
