BINAY CATCHES UP WITH LEGARDA FOR 2ND SPOT

The Liberal Party’s Senator Manuel Roxas maintained a 15-pont lead in the vice presidential race in April, while Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay pulled within two points of second placer Senator Loren Legarda, the latest Manila Standard poll showed.

Nationwide, Roxas received 39 percent of the vote, Legarda had 24 percent and Binay 22 percent, indicating a closer race for the second spot. Binay’s gains came at the expense of Legarda, who lost five points from March.

The survey, conducted between April 4 and 6, asked 2,500 registered voters nationwide to cast their ballots for president, vice president and senators, said Pedro Laylo Jr., resident pollster at the Manila Standard. The survey had a margin of error of 2 percent.

Former Metro Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando and the administration candidate, Edu Manzano, had 3 percent each, and Perfecto Yasay Jr. had 1 percent. Some 7 percent of the respondents were undecided.

Binay held the upper hand in Metro Manila with 39 percent, a 12-point increase from March at the expense of Roxas and Legarda, who both went down 7 points. The number of undecided also jumped from 4 percent to 11 percent in the National Capital Region.

In North and Central Luzon and South Luzon and the Bicol regions, Roxas was ahead of Legarda, whose votes continued to slide. Binay gained 3 percentage points.

In South Luzon and the Bicol regions, Binay came to a statistical draw with Legarda for second place.

In the Visayas, Roxas gained 4 more percentage points, reaching a majority of 53 percent vote share over Legarda’s 22 percent. Legarda suffered further declines as Binay gained 3 points.

In Mindanao, Roxas led the race with 36 percent after being tied with Legarda in the last survey. Legarda’s vote share decreased to 30 percent. The 2-point and 8-point decrease in support for Roxas and Legarda benefited Binay, who went up 6 points, and Manzano, who gained 3 points. The number of undecideds rose 3 points to 8 percent.

Among the upper and middle-income classes, Roxas held 38 percent, while Binay surged ahead of Legarda with 28 percent. Legarda was unchanged at 16 percent in this segment.

A similar trend was seen among poor voters, where Roxas led with 40 percent and Binay increased his share to 24 percent. Among the very poor, Roxas was ahead with 37 percent, Legarda lost points to 31 percent, while Binay picked up four more points to 18 percent.

Roxas retained his high vote share across age groups. Legarda lost significant points among those aged 25 and older and was practically in a dead heat with Binay, who had noteworthy increases across all age-brackets.

Roxas led regardless of gender, but Binay posted significant gains among both male and female voters, taking away votes mostly from Legarda.
