PRESIDENTIAL aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. continues to stamp his class in pre-election surveys as he dominates the latest Radio Mindanao Network and Asia Pacific Consortium of Researchers and Educators (RMN-APCORE) results.

The result of the April 1 to 4 poll survey showed Marcos receiving 59% voters’ preference from Balance Luzon, National Capital Region, Visayas, and Mindanao, while Robredo is a distant second with her 20.7% preference.

Isko Domagoso was third with 8.3%, Sen. Manny Pacquiao received 4.2 %, while Sen. Ping Lacson was hugging the tail end with 1.8%.

At least 5.5% of the respondents were still undecided, while the other candidates hardly managed to get less than one percent.

Marcos showed a 4% increase compared to the March survey where he received 55%, Robredo also gained 2%, while Moreno, Pacquiao, and Lacson dropped several notches lower.

What is clear, however, is that Robredo has not gained any traction even if she hosts her own radio program, “Serbisyong Leni,” with RMN’s DZXL.

“The mere fact that she has her own weekly program with the radio station but still fell short to the numbers of Marcos speaks a lot about her likeability,” said a long-time DZXL broadcaster.

Some officials of the radio station had openly supported Robredo, even using their own programs to promote her candidacy, but that didn’t matter as the bulk of RMN-DZXL listeners were bent on supporting Marcos.

“Mahirap talaga ipanalo kasi kahit sa sarili nyang radio station tinambakan talaga siya ng husto,” a host of a Saturday talk show said.

The result of the RMN-APCORE survey has been consistent with all the other reputable survey firms, which points to a massive if not landslide victory for Marcos on May 9.
