The margin that Noynoy [Aquino] now enjoys indicates a landslide. If elections were held now, Noynoy’s votes would almost equal the share of votes that Joseph Estrada obtained when the popular actor won the election in 1998.
But the victory we want is not just by getting the plurality of votes. The fighting target is to garner the majority of the votes. To use the boxing analogy again, we want Noynoy to win not through points but through knockout.
A president elected by the majority will be in a better position to unite the country as our people tackle the complex challenges — the repair of institutions, the accountability of wrongdoers, the creation of jobs, the increase of revenues together with the higher spending for human development and infrastructure, among other issues.
So what can be done to get a smashing victory?
