LAKAS-CMD vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte is the number choice of the voters, based on the Laylo Research survey.

She is the leading candidate for the position across various demographics, including economic class, gender, and age.

According to the survey conducted from January 10 to 26, Mayor Sara got 60 percent votes.

A total of 15,450 likely voters from around the country participated in the Laylo Mega-Poll, making it the most comprehensive and detailed pre-election survey ever conducted in the Philippines.

Her score was more than triple than of the second-placed candidate, who only got a 19 percent preference rating overall.

Diving into the demographics, Mayor Duterte was the top choice of Filipinos living in both urban and rural areas at 59 percent and 61 percent, respectively.

As for voters grouped according to economic class, they consistently picked the presidential daughter.

A whopping 65 percent from class ABC picked Mayor Duterte, 59 percent did the same from class D, while 61 percent also went the way of Inday Sara from class E.

On the gender subsect, the story remained the same.

A high 62 percent of male survey respondents chose Mayor Duterte, while her fellow women also showed solid support with a 59 percent preference rate.

The Laylo Report also revealed the preferences of three age groups: 18 to 34, 35 to 54, and 55 and above.

The three groups all picked the Lakas-CMD chairperson with scores of 63 percent, 60 percent, and 57 percent, respectively.

The same report showed that Mayor Duterte had a comfortable lead over her rivals in terms of trust rating.

For the entire country, the Davao mayor garnered a net trust rating of 56 percent, with her closest rival only with 8 percent.

Duterte’s trust rating was number one in the National Capital Region (NCR) at 50 percent; North/ Central Luzon, 54 percent; South Luzon/ Bicol, 41 percent; Visayas, 48 percent; and Mindanao, 81 percent.

While her lofty preference rating of 81 percent in her home region of Mindanao wasn’t surprising, it is noteworthy that all her major rivals for the vice presidency posted negative double-digit scores in the region.
