Amid the ‘Run, Sara, Run’ public clamor, Presidential Daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte tops another presidential and vice presidential survey.

In a survey conducted by OCTA Research last January 26 to February 1, 2021, Duterte impressively dominated the number one spot as 22% of respondents picked her as the Philippines next President in the May 2022 national elections.

Coming in at second place is Senator Grace Poe with 13% followed by Senator Manny Pacquiao and former Senator Bongbong Marcos with 12% each. Dynamic Manila Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso got 11% while Vice President Leni Robredo obtained 5%.

Duterte came out on top again in the vice presidential race with 14%. Moreno, Pacquiao garnered 11% and Poe 10%.

The senatorial race saw Pacquiao emerging as the people’s choice with 57%, former senator and now Sorsogon Gov. Francis Escudero, 53%; former House Speaker and Taguig-Pateros Representative Alan Peter Cayetano, 50%; broadcaster Erwin Tulfo, 47%; former senator and Antique Representative Loren Legarda,, 46%; Moreno, 44%; Senator Panfilo Lacson, 43%; Marcos, 42%; Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, 40%; former Senator Jinggoy Estrada, 37%; former Sen. JV Ejercito, 34%,; and Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, 33%.

1,200 respondents took part in OCTA's Tugon ng Masa National Survey via face-to-face interviews.

On Monday, Duterte once again politely declined calls for her to run for the highest position of the land.

“Sa pagkakaron, no. There is no chance na mabag-o ang akong huna-huna,” she said during her radio program Special Hours with Mayor Inday streamed live via Davao City Disaster Radio’s Facebook Page and broadcasted thru DXQQ 87.5 FM.

“Unsa ang akong mga rason? I do not want to enumerate the reasons, dili lang man siya isa, daghan siya, because mu-taas na ang istorya and basig maka-offend and naay ma-hurt na mga tao,” she stressed.

Like her previous statements, Sara is thanking everyone for their trust and confidence in her.

“Nagapasalamat ko sa ilahang trust and confidence sa akua. And nagapasalamat ko sa ilahang suporta sa akua,” she said.

Sara also appealed to local barangay officials, who recently convened for the ‘Run, Sara, Run’ campaign, to refrain from holding mass gatherings to avoid COVID-19 transmission and “stop” organizing motorcades.

“Nagpasulti naku sa isa sa ilaha not to conduct gatherings because we are in a pandemic and there is a risk that there will be transmission kung dunay activity or gathering sa mga tao and to stop that motorcade nila,” she bared.

She emphasized, “every centavo, every peso counts. So kanang gasolina nga ilahang gigamit dinha sa ilahang motorcade is gasolina na pwede nila i-save and gamitun sa lain nilang mga kinahanglan na trabahuun ug adtuhun.” MDM
