Duterte, Cayetano top ADDU off-campus survey

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/25 April) — Presidential bet Rodrigo Duterte and his running mate Senator Alan Peter Cayetano led in the off-campus electoral survey of the Ateneo De Davao University (ADDU).

The survey, conducted from April 4-16 among 1,178 respondents with biometrics as voters in the city’s three districts, had Duterte leading the pack with 87.5 percent.

Senator Grace Poe got 1.4 percent, Vice President Jejomar Binay 0.9 percent, administration bet Mar Roxas, Senator Miriam Santiago 0.4 percent, and 6.2 percent still undecided.

For the candidates for vice president, Cayetano got 51.8 percent, Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. 18.7 percent, Senator Francis Escudero 6.3 percent, Rep. Leni Robredo 3.7 percent, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV 0.9 percent, Senator Gringo Honasan 0.5 percent, and 15.6 percent still undecided.

Among the senatorial candidates, Juan Miguel Zubiri topped the survey with 39.4 percent.

Joining Zubiri in the top six choices are: Senator Panfilo Lacson got 31.5 percent, Senator Sergio Osmeña 30.1 percent, Senator Frank Drilon 29.1 percent, Risa Hontiveros 27.5 percent, and Senator Vicente Sotto 27.2 percent.

“While majority of the voting population rely heavily on television as their primary source of information (86.6 percent), half of the younger voters claimed that they also sourced out their knowledge of this year’s election from social media (49.7 percent vs. only 18.9 percent of the older voters),” the briefer added.

Also, 12.5 percent of the young voting age got information from internet news sites, as opposed to only 4.1 percent of those coming from a much older group.

“The use of radio factored in rather highly for older group at 41.3 percent, while it is only 32.1 percent for their younger counterparts,” it said.

Political analyst and ADDU instructor Ramon Beleno III said Duterte maintained his lead amid criticisms over the “rape joke” concerning an Australian missionary in both local and national surveys because other candidates are also facing controversies.

“We’re expecting na bumababa sya because titirahin sya ng mga kalaban but luckily ang mga kalaban nya are not performing well,” he said.

Beleno said presidential bets who failed to clarify themselves on the issues against them in the debate held in Pangasinan last Sunday might affect their current standing.

He said that Binay, for example, did not explain the corruption charges against him although he had the chance to do so.

“Some instances may ibang kandidato hindi nag-grab ng opportunity. If I were the candidate, dapat lahat ng tanong at opportunity dapat gi-grab nila dahil ito na yung last and final debate and the last na magkikita-kita sila. Definitely, most of the candidates may opportunity  to defend themselves. Si Mar and Poe got the opportunity to state their platforms clearer. Defensor gave a very good fight,” he said.

He said Duterte’s rivals may form alliances against the Davao City mayor as the front runner to pull him down in the days leading to May 9 elections.

“Si Grace Poe and may chance na makatalo kay Dutere. (His rivals might) form alliances and go against Duterte… We are expecting that and that’s natural na mag-form ng alliances,” he said. (Antonio L. Colina IV/MindaNews)

    DUTERTE SOARS EVEN HIGHER & STRONGER THAN THE VIRAL STORM!

    AMID PUBLIC outrage over a viral video, university-based political analysts STILL consider Mayor Duterte’s PHENOMENAL surge as STRONG. In fact, his poll ratings are spiking higher as the electoral momentum is CLEARLY skewed in his favor.

    SCIENTIFIC surveys suggest that he commands the most ‘UPVOTES’ since the start of the campaign. Unlike his closest opponents, Mayor Duterte nets a positive average growth rate of 2% or roughly 810,000 popular votes a week.

    NOT one of the credible poll analysts could ever contradict the STEADY movement of his numbers as opposed to the DECLINING survey performances of Pres. BS Aquino’s shadow candidate, Sen. Grace Poe, and his SPURNED standard bearer Mar Roxas. Both are slumped together in the electoral plateau at negative .02% apiece. Simply put, each of them is LOSING at least 81,000 popular votes for each survey week.

    AS to Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, she still DAWDLES at the foothill with a negative .04% while VP Jejomar Binay seems to waltz up and down STILL trying to figure out how he ended up at the tail end of the race. Among the candidates thus far, he is the BIGGEST loser at negative .08% a week or 2.26 million votes a couple of weeks into the homestretch.

    GIVEN all these, can Mayor Duterte overcome the viral challenge? UP political science professor Aries Arugay believes that Mayor Duterte can very well maintain his insurmountable lead. On the other hand, UST political science professor Edmund Tayao thinks that the voters’ sentiments could go either way. For his part, DLSU assistant political science professor senses a relapse among the mayor’s soft voters in favor of Sen. Poe. But then, as another DLSU professor Julio Tehankee says, the leading candidate WILL WIN if he survives the backlash of the controversial gaffe.

    DESPITE the nuanced predictions on the possibility of a fall-out over the inappropriate remark, I couldn’t help BUT affirm the State University professor Arugay’s view on the issue. For one, ultra-conservatism, as exemplified by the Catholic Church hierarchy, does NOT have a credible command vote UNLIKE the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC). It cannot impose its choice to the flock. The Catholic bishops have done it before to no avail. Their anointed bet, JC delos Reyes (Ang Kapatiran Party), lost to the eventual winner Pres. Aquino whom they even branded as “anti-life”. The bishops’ candidate only got around LESS than 1% of the total voters’ turn-out.

    EVEN if the more progressive GABRIELA preferential votes are padded up to the ultra-conservative Catholic votes, they can ONLY generate around 2.12% or approximately 858,600 popular votes WHICH still fall short of the consolidated WEEKLY conversions of Mayor Duterte in his resurgent bailiwicks of Metro Manila, Mindanao and the Vizayas of approximately 899,000 votes or practically 2.21% of the estimated voters’ turn-out of 75%.

    ESSENTIALLY, Mayor Duterte can still take a wider swath of AT LEAST 1.9% in the next round of ABS-CBN and PULSE Asia survey. Just yesterday, the SWS survey conducted AFTER the verbal lapse came up with a quite TELLING result with Mayor Duterte all the MORE increasing his poll standing by 6%, thus effectively PROVING his patent INVINCIBILITY over any other peripheral issues being thrown his way.

    SO yet again, will the feisty mayor be able to RIDE OUT the viral storm? Yes, DEFINITELY, notwithstanding the ultra-conservative attacks against his person and what he stands for politically. What is CLEAR to every well-meaning Filipino voters now is that ALL electoral classes are CROSSING partisan lines just to give Mayor Duterte a FIGHTING CHANCE, if not a WELL-DESERVED victory, in the polls!
