Also tied at 21 percent were Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas II.

Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago was the lone candidate lagging behind with a mere 3 percent of respondents backing her presidential bid.

A breakdown of the candidates’ ratings from geographical areas showed that Binay was highly favored in Metro Manila with 33 percent.

Poe received a 33 percent backing from Luzon while Roxas got the Visayas nod with 35 percent. The tough-talking Duterte enjoyed a 45 percent rating in Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Poe’s running mate, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, is also doing good in the vice presidential survey after garnering 29 percent.

Escudero was statistically tied at the top of the race with Santiago’s partner, Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr. who got 26 percent.

The survey was based on a nationwide sample size of 1,800 registered voters with a ± 2 percent margin of error.
