2013 Elections: Senatorial Preference survey results by Pulse Asia

Pulse Asia released its latest survey results on Filipinos’ Senatorial Preferences for the May 2013 Elections. The survey fieldwork was conducted from November 10 to 23, 2011 using face-to-face interviews.

If the May 2013 elections were held in early November 2011, fifteen individuals would have a statistical chance of winning a senatorial seat. Most of the probable winners are either former or incumbent members of the Senate.

1. Senator Francis G. Escudero (65.6%),

2. Senator Loren Legarda (58.9%)

3. Manuel A. Roxas II (43.0%) is in 3rd-4th places.

Also in 3rd place (with his lowest showing being 5th place) is Senator Alan Peter S. Cayetano (40.3%). Completing the top five is former Vice-President Noli de Castro whose overall voter preference of 34.8% puts him anywhere from 4th to 8th places.  (Refer to Tables 3a and 3b.)

Sharing 5th to 12th places are San Juan City Representative Joseph Victor Ejercito (30.4%), Senator Gregorio B. Honasan (29.6%) and Cagayan Representative Juan Ponce Enrile, Jr. (29.5%). Senator Aquilino Martin Pimentel III (29.4%) and Justice Secretary Leila M. de Lima (29.4%) land in 6th to 12th places. Other probable winners are Senator Antonio F. Trillanes IV (28.7%), former Senator Juan Miguel F. Zubiri (26.9%), Aurora Province Representative Juan Edgardo M. Angara (24.3%), former Senator Ana Madrigal (24.0%) and former Senator Richard J. Gordon (22.1%). At best, these individuals would find themselves in 6th to 12th places but their lowest statistical rankings – 14th to 20th places – would put them out of the winners’ circle. Less than one in ten Filipinos (5.2%) does not have/refuses to name any preferred candidate for the May 2013 senatorial elections.
