The realistic options of the last 31 days of campaigning

Today marks the last 31 days of campaigning for national and local positions in the May 10, 2010 elections. At the end of May 8, all candidates will have to stop campaigning or face disqualification.

In the most coveted electoral contest — the presidency — the realistic options have narrowed. For those who are currently ranked fourth place and lower in the credible polls — their chances of winning have moved from improbable to almost impossible. It has never happened in Philippine presidential elections that a presidential candidate rallied and won from a single digit rating with only a month of campaigning left.

Not even a national well-oiled party machinery can do the job now for those ranked lower than fourth place. Theoretically, Lakas Kampi CMD’s Gilbert Teodoro has the edge in party machinery but it is now doubted how many members of his party are still supporting him.
