•Says survey shows it’s time for others to withdraw
Aquino made the statement in Mabalacat, Pampanga, President Arroyo’s home province, following the release of the March 21-28 Pulse Asia survey showing him with 37 percent, or a 12-point lead over Nacionalista Party’s Sen. Manuel Villar.
Former President Joseph Estrada’s rating stayed at 18 percent while administration bet Gilberto Teodoro Jr. remained in fourth with 7 percent.
“Natural consequence yan. Parati naman pong yung No. 1 at No. 2 ang talagang magbabakbakan,” Aquino said.
Bro. Eddie likens presidential bid to fight vs ‘Goliaths’
As a televangelist who has yet to hold public office, Bro. Eddie Villanueva of Jesus Is Lord (JIL) Movement is aware that he is up against political “Goliaths” in his quest to become president of the country.
But like the biblical hero David, who defeated the giant Goliath despite his diminutive size, Villanueva is determined to win in the first ever nationwide automated elections on May 10 despite his poor performance in various presidential preference surveys, where he ranks only sixth among nine candidates.
