we likes a lot the idea of “the transformers” of gordon and bayani when they first announced their candidacy of president and vice-president. aside from that time, there was really no mention of it afterwards. too bad they didn’t they make a big deal of it, we think it could have been a game changer for them,
this poster artwork we have here we think is one of the best we have seen in this campaign.
January 2, 2010, 7pm – yasay surges to 3rd place with 10%. fernando keeps dominance at 48%, followed by roxas at 19% at 3rd.
December 10, 2009, 7am - bayani fernando takes an early and commanding lead at 45%, followed by mar roxas at 25%. the rest of the vice-presidentiables are very far behind with binay at 8%. “none of the above” in this poll is high at 9%.
December 2, 2009 – we are opening a fresh poll for the vice-presidential election that includes only the official list, those candidates who filed their Certificate Of Candidacy the deadline of submission of which was yesterday.
Please vote. The software will allow to to vote only once.
mar roxas continues to dominate, with 43% maintaining a wide margin versus loren legarda who is a far second at 23%, almost one half of roxas’ rating. legarda’s deteriorating rating seem to mirror the same trend her presidential partner manny villar is experiencing in the poll.
there is a huge difference in quality of ads between the legarda and roxas ad campaigns. legarda runs this melodramatic, slow and boring tv ads with weak to nowhere strategy versus mar roxas, uplifting, engaging and very real tv ads. when you see legarda’s tv ads – you feel like crying but you do not know if you want to cry because of her meaningless message and flat line tone of the ads or out of pity that she is running such crappy tv ads. it is hard to imagine what possessed her to run such ads.
the other news here is the surge of jejomar binay who gained +4% points. this maybe due to the wider exposure he has been getting through the numerous sorties they have been doing around the country.
today is the formal start of the campaign period for national positions. presidentiables launched their campaigns:
- noynoy aquino and mar roxas chose tarlac, the aquino hometown
- manny villar and loren legarda chose laguna, the birthplace of hose rizal
- erap estrada and jejomar binay had theirs in plaza miranda, the traditional miting de abanse venue for generations of politicians
- richard gordon and bayani fernando chose cavite, home to gordon’s hero ancestors
- gilbert teodoro and edu manzano chose antipolo because of feng shui. wth?
Teodoro was advised by friends, including feng shui experts, that Antipolo would be a good venue to kick off his campaign, said Reggie Velasco, deputy secretary general of the Lakas-Kampi-Christian Muslim Democrats.
“They said that the place is nice, the flow of air is good. Being in the east of Manila, it is where the sun shines, and because the place is elevated, Gibo will be situated on top where he can see the entire Metro Manila and neighboring areas,” Velasco said in a phone interview.
we were shocked to read about teodoro’;s choice and most specially his reason from choosing antipolo city. he prides himself with being a harvard graduate and a bar topnotcher and now we find out feng shui is his choice.
mar roxas and loren legarda are on a virtual tie in this poll. this is a much harder read and a more interesting one. while their national totals are on a virtual tie, how they got there are very different.
roxas’ strengths are NCR and visayas which are legarda’s weaknesses. legarda’s strength is luzon while that is roxas’ weakness. there seem to be a clear divide among the voters for both of them in specific areas. it would be interesting to know what the explanations are for the disparities.
there is also a clear disparity between the two on socio-eco class. mar roxas’ strength is at the NCR while it is legarda’s weakness.

mr. pink, the uglifier of metro manila bayani fernando to run for vice president – smart move, almost
we think it is right for mr. pink bayani fernando to drop his run for the presidency, his chances of winning without a party is anywhere from zero to nil.
we also think his running for vice president is right, well almost. we think fernando will make an excellent vice president for any candidate. he has the passion and the energy to get things done, no matter what. these are very good qualities as a 2nd in command.
there is the almost there as we think he will have a hard time to win this election as VP. running for the senate would be much better for him but the vice-presidency is a tough fight for him.
we wish mr. pink, the uglifier of metro manila, bayani fernando all the best.
