MANILA, Philippines – In a surprise result, Sen. Loren Legarda did poorly in ABS-CBN’s Harapan: The Vice-Presidential Debate, based on feedback from citizens who participated in the debate.
The debate, aired live Sunday-Monday over Channel 2, ANC, Studio 23, and abs-cbnNEWS.com, introduced a new way of getting feedback from citizens: the Wireless Audience Response System WARS.
In the debate, randomly-selected citizens in 4 areas—Metro Manila, Naga, Cebu, Davao—were given a gadget. After a candidate answered a question, the participant had to press a button to say whether they felt the candidate gave a truthful answer. Another button meant he or she felt the candidate was not telling the truth.
