Presidential candidate Mar Roxas does not believe in surveys.
Respondents in surveys by Pulse Asia and the Social Weather Stations (SWS) have consistently consigned Roxas, standard bearer of the ruling Liberal party of President Benigno Aquino, to the fourth spot.
In the latest survey of Pulse Asia, Roxas reaffirmed his franchise over the spot chalking an emaciated 17%.
Vice President Jejomar Binay bounced back to lead the presidential pack with 33%, followed by Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, 23 % and Senator Grace Poe, 21%.
For Mr. Roxas, the best survey would be the result of the May 2016 elections.
Just like what I always say, the most important survey will take place in May on election day, he says in downplaying the result of the latest Pulse Asia survey.
This is the line that Roxas would dish out every time surveys are released with his name at the bottom.
As low numbers continue to play joke on his presidential bid in the surveys, Roxas said he was confident that his advocacy of the “Daang Matuwid” governance of Aquino would lead him to victory on E-day.
Alas and alack!
Roxas could be travelling the wrong road that critics call “Tuwad na Daan.”
The more that Roxas talks about his “Straight Path,” the more that he gets vanishing numbers in the surveys.
But wait. How true is this rumor that Roxas has decided to back out of the race?
