According to recent presidential surveys, Vice President Leni Robredo and rival Bongbong Marcos are “statistically tied.”
The last Social Weather Station and TruthWatch pre-election survey saw Robredo and Marcos with similar numbers, concluding that winning the presidency isn’t a guarantee for the dictator’s son.
The SWS survey conducted from May 1 to May 3 suggests Marcos received 29 percent while the vice president was only a percent short of tying him.
TruthWatch president Dr. Dante M. Velasco said survey findings at the railway station showed 46% for Marcos, 44% for Leni. “These are breakthrough findings, placing the two frontrunning candidates in a statisical tie,” he pointed out.

TruthWatch president Dr. Dante M. Velasco said the results from the survey conducted at a railway station had Marcos and Robredo at close numbers.
“These are breakthrough findings, placing the two frontrunning candidates in a statistical tie,” he said.
However, in the final PUBLiCUS Asia pre-election survey results, Marcos maintains a wide lead over Robredo. PUBLiCUS said that Marcos led Robredo by “large margins” in Northern and Central Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao but are tied in the NCR.
“Although it should be noted that the 12-point gap between them in SL (Southern Luzon) meets the outer limit of the +/-6 percent margin of error applicable to the regional grouping,” it pointed out, adding that Marcos is winning classes D and E. Marcos also leads in classes A,B and C but only by a small margin.
Mayor Isko Moreno came it at 3rd with only 8 percent.
Meanwhile, Sara Duterte is favored to win the vice-presidency who is trailed by Kiko Pangilinan at second with 16 percent in voter preference. Both are statistically tied in the NCR but Duterte dominates all the other regions. Duterte held large leads in Northern and Central Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
