Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero emerged as the voters’ top choice for vice-president based on the latest Bilang Pilipino-SWS Mobile Survey, while most of the voters did not like Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos to become the next second highest official in the land.
With a score of 31 percent, Escudero topped the survey conducted on March 31 among 1,200 validated voters, 300 each in Metro Manila, Balance Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The veteran lawmaker was followed by Marcos who got 26 percent; Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo with 25 percent; Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, 13 percent; Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, 3 percent; and Sen. Gregorio Honasan II, 1 percent.
Escudero led the vice-presidential poll in Balance Luzon with 38 percent, while Marcos topped Metro Manila with 32 percent. Robredo was the most preferred candidate in Visayas and Mindanao with 38 percent and 24 percent, respectively.
In the same survey, Marcos came as the least liked vice-presidential candidate as 22 percent of the respondents said they don’t want him to win. Thirteen percent of the respondents did not like Trillanes and Honasan to win.
The respondents were asked, “Who among the candidates for vice president of the Philippines you most not like to win?”
Escudero is running as independent under the banner “Gobyernong may Puso” alongside leading presidential candidate, Sen. Grace Poe. (JCA)
