Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III remained the top choice among voters with 37.1 percent, followed by Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Manuel Villar Jr. with 29.8 percent.
Former President Joseph Estrada of the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino was third with 13.9 percent, Lakas-Kampi-CMD bet Gilberto Teodoro Jr. ranked fourth with 6.9 percent, and Sen. Richard Gordon of Bagumbayan was fifth overall at 3.1 percent, tailed closely by Bro. Eddie Villanueva in sixth place with 2.6 percent.
