The poll, published by Business World, was conducted on September 2 to 5 among 1,200 participants all over the country. Of those polled, 96 percent were registered voters.
The participants were given a list of 12 names in alphabetical order, with nicknames included, and were asked: "Among the names found in this list, who will you probably vote for as a president of the Philippines if elections were held today?"
Results show that Poe topped the survey with 26 percent votes followed by Binay with 24 percent and Roxas with 20 percent. Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte came in fourth with a rating of 11 percent followed by senators Chiz Escudero and Bongbong Marcos Jr. with four percent each.
