Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo raked in five points in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey and closed in on her top rivals for vice president: Senators Francis “Chiz” Escudero and Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos.
Gaining five percentage points from the last Businessworld-SWS poll in February, Robredo was chosen by 24 percent of respondents in the pre-election survey done from March 4 to 7. The figure put her at third spot.
Escudero took the top spot after edging up two points from February, getting 28 percent and leaving Marcos flat who still got 26 percent.
Considering the survey’s margin of error of + or – 2 percentage points, Escudero and Marcos were statistically tied for first place; and Marcos and Robredo were statistically tied for second.
Senator Alan Peter Cayetano lost five points and went down with 11 percent, but remained at fourth place.
Senators Antonio Trillanes and Gregorio Honasan switched places at fifth and sixth places. Trillanes gained one point getting six percent, while Honasan lost one point moving down to five percent.
In the March 4-7, 2016 SWS Presidential Survey, Senator Grace Poe now tops the presidential race with 27%, delegating VP Jejomar Binay in second with 24%.
Mar Roxas now takes the third spot with 22%, while Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in close 4th with 21%.
Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago continues to place last in the survey with 4%.
