Salceda: Duterte will win as president if…
Albay governor and Liberal Party (LP) campaign manager Joey Salceda believes Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will win the presidency if LP standard bearer Mar Roxas and Senator Grace Poe run separately in the 2016 elections.
Salceda said Duterte has the biggest chance of winning against presidential aspirants Vice President Jejomar Binay, Roxas, and Poe.
“”Aaminin namin, kapag sabay ‘yang dalawang yan (Roxas at Poe), parehong talo yan. Kapag nag-announce si Poe, si Duterte tiyak na papasok yan,” the governor was quoted in a Daily Tribune report.
LP has been courting Poe to be Roxas’ running mate but the senator has not announced any election plans for next year. Supporters and allies have been calling on her to run for president instead.
“Para kay Duterte, mayroon siyang balwarte, ang buong Mindanao. Pumunta ka doon at talagang manginginig ka,” Salceda pointed out.
He said even Bicolanos are rooting for Duterte as revealed by an online survey conducted by online news BicolToday.com from August 3 to 5.
Duterte topped the online survey garnering 51.81 percent.
The “Others” who obtained 83 votes or 2.64 percent were spread among other perceived presidential candidates such as Sen. Bongbong Marcos, former Sen. Panfilo Lacson, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos and Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago.
A total of 52,678 netizens were reached by the official Facebook account of the BicolToday.com, which received 210 comments and 30 shares.
The poll question asked was: “If elections are held today, who will you vote for president?”
Although the voters remain anonymous, BicolToday.com said that it utilized a platform program for a “one computer-one vote” scheme where the IP address of the computers used by the online voter was registered in order to prevent multiple voting.
BicolToday.com emphasized that the online survey was carried out right after the 6th State of the Nation Address of President Aquino and likewise after Roxas was endorsed as the official standard bearer of LP.
