LEGAZPI CITY, 6Aug2015 (BicolToday.com) – – – Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte still tops at 51.81 % public approval over Mar Roxas with 37.75 % in the online survey conducted by online news BicolToday.com.

The online poll had started August 3 and ended August 5.

Grace Poe at 5.03% trailed behind the two, while Vice President Jejomar Binay at 2.77 % is way behind the race.

The poll question: If elections are held today, who will you vote for President?

In nationwide online poll survey of BicolToday, from 2 pm of August 3 until 6 am of August 5, 2015, it had gathered 3,142 respondents.

Poll: August 3 (2pm) – August 5 (6am), 2015

Duterte, Rodrigo 1,628 51.81%
Roxas, Mar 1,186 37.75%
Poe, Grace 158 5.03%
Binay, Jejomar 87 2.77%
Other: 83 2.64%

Under “Other”, the 83 votes or 2.64% were distributed among Senator Bongbong Marcos, Senator Mirriam Santiago, Senator Alan Cayetano, Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto and former Senator Panfilo Lacson.

In official Facebook account of BicolToday.com, the poll had reached 52,678 people, and had taken 210 comments and 30 shares.

The 3,142 respondents are good and credible indicator as random sampling of the public pulse on the specific 3-day period, August 3 -5.

The 3-day period was crucial for knowing the public pulse after President Aquino had just finished wrapping up his SONA on July 27, and anointed Roxas on July 31 as the official standard bearer of the Liberal Party for the 2016 presidential election.

Despite Roxas’ anointment by President Aquino with the promise of massive resources, political machinery, coalitions, and funding, Duterte still leads in the poll survey.

Duterte has not yet declared his intention to run for the top post, but his name is making the rounds in every kitchen and dining table in the country.

Binay, with heavily tarnished image arising from alleged corruption as bannered by the media, has slide farther down, far lower than neophyte Poe who is still a kindergarten kid in big game politics.

BicolToday.com has used a credible online survey platform which cannot be manipulated. The platform is programmed for “one computer-one vote” scheme where the IP address of a computer used for voting is automatically registered, regardless if it is used several times to prevent multiple voting.

The voters remain anonymous.

Below are some comments and postings about the online poll at Bicol Today’s Facebook page:

In Facebook post, Orio Lutang Malabi said, Duterte kami . Pag di tatakbo dina kami boboto sayng kc kung sa iba kami boboto puro palpak .  Di na nag babago ang Pinas .. Duterte need all Pilipino .

Joel Armea commented: Mar, highly educated, veteran in politics, honest and not corrupt. Poe is a rookie and needs more exposures but had an affinity with Binay as a Godfather. Binay is full of shit and have not done any legend to honor him instead, as an artist of corruptions that overshadowed his personality as a leader; be a Mayor or a Vice President and what more as President? Duterte has guts towards ill doings of people at the expense of human rights ! So, from all of the above Mar is the best choice for the people and country !!

Alex Into : No one can beat the sincerity of Duterte… i will vote for Duterte.

Ciro Santiago: Mar was declared by the Liberal Party as their standard bearer…he will win because of their machineries…Duterte is the last credible person available for the vice presidency…the two I DO NOT KNOW..THE WOMAN IS A YOUNG WOMAN IN A HURRY WITH NO POLITCAL BACKGROUND…THE OTHER THE MAN HAS LOST HIS CREDIBILITY AND HE IS RESORTING TO CRAB MENTALITY.
