Double-digit lead for Aquino
With the race to Malacañang nearing the homestretch, presidential bet Sen. Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” C. Aquino III has gained a double-digit lead over his colleague and main rival, Sen. Manuel “Manny” B. Villar, Jr., in the latest BusinessWorld-Social Weather Stations (SWS) Pre-Election Survey.
The April 16 to 19 nationwide poll, conducted three weeks before the May 10 elections, saw Mr. Aquino — the Liberal Party bet — gaining a point to 38% compared to a two-point drop to 26% for the Nacionalista Party’s Mr. Villar.
The lead between the two opened up to 12 points from nine previously in the BW-SWS survey of March 19-22.
Six percent of the respondents were classed as “undecided/others” — these included votes for disqualified bet Vetellano “Dodong” S. Acosta of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan and responses that could not be properly read.
Binay overtakes Legarda, Roxas still on top in VP race
Makati Mayor Jejomar “Jojo” C. Binay of the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) has caught up with Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) bet Sen. Loren B. Legarda in the race for the vice-presidency but Liberal Party candidate Sen. Manuel “Mar” A. Roxas continues to enjoy a large, albeit narrower, lead.
The latest BusinessWorld-Social Weather Stations (SWS) Pre-Election Survey, conducted last April 16 to 19, saw Mr. Binay gaining four points to 25%, just edging out Ms. Legarda who lost a point to 24%.
Mr. Roxas’s score, meanwhile, fell to below 40% for the first time: he was down three points to 39% with three weeks to go before the May 10 elections.
Mr. Roxas’s score has been dropping since the start of the year, as has Ms. Legarda’s although not to the same extent. Mr. Binay, meanwhile, has been gaining from last December’s 10%.
Eleven out of Magic 12 slots all but in the bag?
Established politicians, most of them incumbent and former senators, appear to have cemented their hold on slots in the so-called Magic 12 Senate race, the latest BusinessWorld-Social Weather Stations (SWS) Pre-Election Survey showed.
The top two were described as “well ahead” and nine said to have “always been in the winning circle” since December, leaving just one seat being fought over by three newcomers.
Five other senatorial candidates, however, are not far behind, according to the results of the April 16- to-19 survey, conducted three weeks before the May 10 national elections.
