Grace Poe regains lead in survey
“OVERWHELMED AND HUMBLED’
Independent presidential candidate Senator Grace Poe regained the top spot in the latest pre-election presidential preference survey, pollster Pulse Asia announced Saturday.
Pulse Asia said Poe was back on the lead with 30 percent of the respondents choosing her, while three other presidential contenders share second place.
Poe, in a statement, said she’s both overwhelmed and humbled by the survey results.
“The latest Pulse Asia survey is both overwhelming and humbling. It echoes the voice of the people who trust and believe in my capacity to be a leader no matter what hurdles are thrown my way,” she said.
“The Filipinos will always be my inspiration to stay the course and work harder, especially now that the official campaign period is about to commence. I am ready to serve and work to bring the change that the Filipinos deserve.”
Poe’s spokesman, Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian, said the senator was thankful to her supporters for edging the lead in the Pulse Asia survey, which she said was a boost for their campaigning efforts.
“With the data on-hand, we will see to it that we continue to amplify our message that Senator Poe is still a candidate in the running for the presidency,” Gatchalian said.
The surge in ratings supposedly bolstered their support of Poe despite the slew of disqualification cases against the senator and will serve as a road map for their campaign, he said.
“We believe that there are still voters out there who are uncertain about the status of her candidacy, hence it becomes more imperative for us to clarify that matter and as a result gain more ground,” Gatchalian stated.
“Taking cue from the results, we will intensify our drive to drum up interest in her platform of goverenance – inclusive growth, Gobyernong May Puso, walang maiiwanan,” he added.
