Queen of All-Media, TV host, and actress Kris Aquino reminisced a survey rating slump of Vice President Leni Robredo’s campaign in 2016 and appeared victorious in the end.
The ailing Aquino spoke to an estimated 40k crowd at the Leni-Kiko People’s Rally in Tarlac on Wednesday, March 23.
On stage, the youngest sister of the late President Noynoy Aquino asked the Presidential aspirant to recall how she started in 2016.
“How does it feel na di ka humahakot ng tao, but everywhere you go parami nang parami ang nagpupunta? Dumadami ang Kakampink at pinaparamdam sa ‘yo na mahal ka nila. Ipaglalaban ka nila.”
“Syempre, sobrang… “ Robredo began, but the crowd started to chant–‘Hindi kami bayad.’
The incumbent Vice President managed to continue her response to Aquino’s question, “Maraming salamat.
“Abonado pa. Pero alam natin, na dahil na…
“Pero alam mo Kris, tama hindi tayo bayad. yan ng nasa itaas. Kaya maraming-maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat.
Robredo continued to share how she won the elections through the efforts of her team.
“Mabilis na nung ating pag-akyat. From number 6, mabilis tayong umakyat s number 4, umakyat sa number, umakyat tayo sa number 2. Election day, number 1 na tayo.
“At tinulungan nyo po kami dito sa Tarlac. Panalo ako dito sa Tarlac.”
The current figures Robredo has based on the latest survey results are somehow reminiscent of her rise to victory.
A survey got conducted by Pulse Asia on February 18-23, 2022, with 2,400 respondents. Robredo stands in second place with 15%, compared to Marcos taking the top spot at 60%.
“There’s a lot of work that remains to be done,” Vice Presidential spokesperson Barry Gutierrez said on March 16, 2022.
Despite the numbers, the Kakampinks are still ‘positive’ about Robredo’s chances of winning. The Pink rallies are flocked with increasing supporters despite the survey results.

Remember, during the early months of VP race in 2015-16, LBM enjoyed over 80% rating while Leni was only 1%. Then was very difficult, she was an unknown. Now is easier, she has proven her worth. And despite all odds, she won. So relax and believe that God move in mysterious ways
