Tolentino enters Magic 12 in latest Pulse survey
By JOHN CARLO M. CAHINHINAN
Administration senatorial bet Francis Tolentino has gained big in the latest senatorial survey conducted by Pulse Asia.
Latest survey figures released on Monday showed that Tolentino has finally entered the Magic 12, placing between 11th and 12th place.
The survey conducted from February 24 to 28 also highlighted Tolentino’s 11-point jump in voter’s preference, wherein, from a mere 21.2 percent last January, around 32 percent of respondents are now saying that they will support the former Tagaytay City’s senatorial bid in the May elections.
Independent reelectionist candidate Sen. Grace Poe remained in the top spot, followed by reelectionist administration bet Sen. Cynthia Villar.
Meanwhile, former Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Christopher Lawrence ‘Bong’ Go stayed on the third spot, followed by reelection administration Sen. Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara.
Earlier this month, a Social Weather Station (SWS) survey commissioned by the camp of former Sen. Jinggoy Estrada showed that Tolentino is already within striking distance in 12th spot.
