Noli, Chiz, Erap, Manny in close race

If the May 2010 presidential elections were held today, it would be a close race among Vice President Noli de Castro, Senator Francis Escudero, former President Joseph Estrada, and Senator Manuel Villar, according to the latest Pulse Asia survey. Based on the February 2009 Nationwide Survey on the May 2010 elections, these four politicians “enjoyed nearly the same overall voter preferences,” Pulse Asia Chief Research Fellow Dr. Ana Maria Tabunda said in the firm’s March 12 media release.

In the February 2 to 15 natiowide survey of 1,200 representative adults, respondents were asked who among 9 politicians on the list were their first choice for president.

De Castro was the first choice with 19%, followed closely by Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero with 17%, former President Joseph Estrada with 16%, and Senator Manuel “Manny” Villar Jr. with 15%.

“No clear winner would emerge in the presidential race if the May 2010 elections were held today,” the polling firm said.

Escudero beat de Castro in vote-rich Metro Manila with 27% while De Castro got 14%,  Estrada got 13%, and Villar got 12%.  

Escudero, who becomes eligible for the presidential race in October, gained 2% since the October 2008 Pulse Asia survey while Villar dropped 2%.

Behind the top four preferences for president were Senators Loren Legarda (12%), Mar Roxas (8%), and Panfilo Lacson (6%).

At the bottom were Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay (2%) and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chairman Bayani Fernando (1%).

The survey has a margin of error of plus/minus 3%.
