A MAJORITY of Filipinos believe that Leni Robredo is a very weak leader and will be influenced and act as a puppet by the “yellows” or pro-Aquino handlers.

Those are the main reasons why they would “definitely not vote for her,” according to results of the January to March Laylo survey.

In the March 15 to 22, 2022 Laylo survey, 41 percent of the 3, 000 respondents answered that they will not vote for Robredo because she will be influenced by “yellows” if she won the presidency.

Last January, 39 percent answered the same answer while the number even increased to 41 percent in February.

The second reason why the respondents will not vote for Robredo is because of her “weak character.”

Also, a total of 34 percent of the respondents believed she is a weak leader based on the results of the March survey.

Meanwhile, 16 percent said they will not vote for her because she is a woman; 15 percent said male officials will find it hard to follow or obey her; 15 percent said she is not intelligent; and another 15 percent said that they do not like Robredo because she does not get along well with Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.

In contrast, the same survey showed presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ’Bongbong’ Marcos , scored 61 percent in voters’ presidential preference rating as he maintained his kilometric lead, at a breathtaking 42% margin of difference over the closest pursuer from among his far distant rivals.

Robredo is lagging behind at 19%, Isko Moreno at 9%, Manny Pacquiao at 6%, Ping Lacson at 2%, and the undecided at 2%.

Marcos also tops the Laylo preferential survey in all regions, with the Solid North delivering the highest voters’ preference rating: 86% in the Ilocos Region (Region 1), 86% in the Cordillera Autonomous Region, 84% in Cagayan Valley (Region 2), and 62% in Central Luzon (Region 3).

The Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer also imprints his inimitable ascendance in Mindanao over the other presidential candidates.

The Davao Region (Region 11) and the Caraga (Region 13) deliver the highest voters’ preference rating at 80% each, with Socksargen (Region 12) at 67%, the Zamboanga Peninsula (Region 9) at 66%, BARMM at 63%, and Northern Mindanao (Region 10) at 55%.

The results in terms of demographics also show the runaway lead of Marcos in all classes.

He registered 58% voters’ preference rating in Classes ABC, 62% in Class D, and 58% in Class E.

In terms of trust ratings of candidates for president by major areas, Marcos gets +53, with Moreno following at +16, Robredo takes a negative mark at -9, Lacson with -11, and -23 for Pacquiao.
