UniTeam’s tandem is still in the lead in Pulse Asia’s April 16-21 survey


MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The most recent Pulse Asia survey indicates the “UniTeam” tandem of former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio appears to be on track to win the May 9 elections.

There was almost no movement in the latest Pulse Asia presidential poll, which was conducted from April 16 to 21—Marcos maintained his large lead over his rivals for a seat in Malacañang in the latest Pulse Asia poll, which showed virtually no changes from the previous poll, which was conducted in March.

Marcos retained 56 percent support, while his closest rival for the presidency, Vice President Leni Robredo, fell one point to 23 percent from the previous 24 percent in March.

Marcos received a similar percentage in the April edition of the survey as he did in March. Surveys are snapshots of public sentiment over a specific time period, and that sentiment can shift.

Marcos continues to lead in every region, with 57 percent in the National Capital Region, 54 percent in Balance Luzon, 47 percent in Visayas, and 67 percent in Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Robredo received only 26% in the NCR, 24% in Balance Luzon, 34% in Visayas, and 11% in Mindanao.

The story is similar across social classes, with Marcos receiving 57% of votes from respondents in Classes A, B, and C, 56% from Class D, 58% from Class D1, 50% from Class D2, and 57% from Class E.

Robredo, on the other hand, received the following figures:

  • A, B, and C account for 29% of the total.
  • D1 contributed 23% of the total.
  • D2 contributes 21%.
  • D3 contributes 28%.
  • D4 contributes 24%.

Furthermore, Marcos fared well in the 18-24 year old age group, with 72 percent of those polled choosing him. Robredo’s strength was in the 65-and-up age group (30%), which also happens to be Marcos’ weakest area (47%).

Nonetheless, Marcos leads Robredo by 17 percentage points in that category.

The lack of movement in Robredo’s numbers comes despite massive rallies from March to April, and despite large groups who backed other candidates switching to her side.

Meanwhile, according to the same poll, Duterte-Carpio maintained her lead over her rivals for vice president, with 55 percent of respondents saying they would vote for her if elections were held during the survey period.

This is one point lower than the previous poll, but changes among vice-presidential candidates are also insignificant.

Duterte-Carpio maintains a commanding 37-point lead over Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III, who fell two points to 18 percent, owing largely to a 12-point drop in the Visayas, where Sen. Kiko Pangilinan surged by ten points.

Pangilinan increased by eight points in Metro Manila and by two points in Mindanao, but this resulted in a one-point increase overall.

The most recent Pulse Asia poll differed from previous polls conducted by the private company in that respondents were asked to fill out a mock ballot rather than choose from a list of candidates.
