SWS SURVEY SHOWS BINAY
STILL THE TOP CHOICE IN 2016
Vice President Jejomar C. Binay continues to lead potential candidates in the 2016 presidential elections according to a survey released by the Social Weather Stations.
In the First Quarter 2015 Social Weather Stations Survey conducted March 20-23, Binay remained the top choice for voters, getting a voter preference of 36 percent.
Vice Presidential spokesperson for political affairs Atty. Rico Paolo Quicho welcomed the results of the survey and said that the Vice President will continue working for the benefit of the Filipino people.
“The Vice President is truly grateful for the trust and recognition as shown by the results of the latest SWS presidential survey. This is defined by the competence and compassion of the Vice President as manifested in his programs in Makati especially in health and education and assisting OFWs as Presidential Adviser on OFW concerns and the gains achieved by the Pag-IBIG Fund,” Quicho said.
“The Vice President is focused on the task at hand and would continue to provide his kind of leadership and performance whoever will be the other presidential aspirants,” he added.
The survey used face-to-face interviews with 1,200 adults nationwide and had sampling error margins of plus and minus 3 points for national percentages, and plus and minus 6 points each for Metro Manila, Balance Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
Respondents were not given a list to choose from. They were instead asked to give names of up to three persons whom they thought should succeed President Benigno S. Aquino III when he steps down on June 30, 2016. /MP
