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.
