Aquino opens up lead versus Villar

Posted by akosistella on March 29, 2010

LIBERAL Party standard-bearer Sen. Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” C. Aquino III has opened up a nine-point lead over his nearest rival for the presidency, fellow legislator and Nacionalista Party bet Sen. Manuel “Manny” B. Villar, Jr., based on the results of the latest BusinessWorld-Social Weather Stations Pre-Election Survey.

Mr. Aquino picked up a point to score 37% and further benefitted from a six-point loss for Mr. Villar, now at 28%, in the March 19-22 poll conducted just before campaigning for local posts began last Friday. The gap between the two frontrunners was just two points, within the error margins used, a month earlier.

Spokesmen for both pointed to retweaked strategies working or needing further adjustment, and analysts have said local-level campaigning – where endorsements by their parties’ bets will ostensibly add a new dimension – could change things anew with still a little over a month and a half left to go before the May 10 elections.

Roxas maintains lead in race for vice-presidency

SENATOR Manuel “Mar” A. Roxas of the Liberal Party continues to dominate the contest for the vice-presidency despite a three-point drop in his voter preference score, leading Senator Loren B. Legarda who saw her support eroded by the same margin.

The latest BusinessWorld-Social Weather Stations (SWS) Pre-Election Survey, conducted last March 19-22 just ahead of the start of the local campaign period, put Mr. Roxas’ score at 42% versus Ms. Legarda’s 25%.

Compounding Ms. Legarda’s woes is the fact that the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino’s Jejomar “Jojo” C. Binay picked up four points to 21%, further narrowing the gap between the two of them.
