Despite being under fire for his controversial rape remark, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte remained atop the most recent survey among presidential candidates conducted by Pulse Asia.
In the survey, Duterte got a commanding 32 percent, up by two percent from his rating the previous week.
The survey was conducted from April 5 to 10 which was before the rape remark issue surfaced.
Meanwhile, Senator Grace Poe remained at second spot with 25 percent, the same as her previous rating.
Vice President Jejomar Binay and administration bet Mar Roxas II still shared the third place with 20 and 18 percent, respectively.
Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, whose noticeable absence from the second presidential debates spurred questions about her health lagged behind with a mere one percent.
This Pulse Asia survey had 4,000 respondents with a ± 1.5 margin of error.
