Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Q & A

Melanie Marquez: Apart from love, what else do you think we need?
Candidate: Thank you so much for that wonderful question. I think aside from love, all we need is beauty. Well, beauty is not about physical appearance alone. It is about what is inside of you. It is how you share, how you inspire other people, and through that we can achieve unity and it goes on and on and on.

NANCY BINAY, UNA DOMINATE SURVEY

1 04 2013

BREAKING NEWS: Senatorial candidate Nancy Binay of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) topped the latest survey conducted by Pulse Asia from March 27 to March 30, 2013.

Vice President Jejomar Binay’s daughter got a stunning 70 percent rating as she toppled re-electionist senator Loren Legarda from the number 1 position. Legarda dropped to No. 5 with 46 percent.

UNA also dominated the pre-election survey with 9 of its candidates in the Magic 12. Team PNoy was the biggest loser as only two of its Senate bets made it to the potential winners’ circle.

The most surprising performer and biggest gainer was religious leader and televangelist Bro. Eddie Villanueva who leapfrogged to the No. 12 spot from 23rd place in the previous poll.

In a statement, UNA spokesman and Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco lauded the Pulse Asia survey saying, “This is the real pulse of the nation. The people have spoken. Mabuhay ang masang Pilipino!”

He also commended the efforts of UNA bets to reach out to a far greater number of Filipinos.

“Pinaghirapan nila ito. Makikita n’yo naman ang dami ng taong dumadalo sa aming campaign sorties. Patunay lamang na solido ang suporta ng mga kababayan natin sa UNA,” Tiangco added.

Team PNoy declined to comment on the results of the Pulse Asia survey. Ben Evardone, the coalition’s spokesperson said they have yet to receive a copy of the survey.

Sought for reaction, President Aquino’s spokesperson Edwin Lacierda just smirked.

Pulse Asia

A total of 2,000 respondents nationwide were polled. The survey had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent. Only Pulse Asia employees were involved in the sampling, field work, and data processing and analysis. No portion of the study was outsourced.

For transparency, Pulse Asia revealed that the latest survey was commissioned by Vice President Binay, former President Joseph Estrada and Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

Trust Ratings
Pulse Asia also released the results of its latest trust and approval ratings survey. President Aquino and Vice President Binay continue to enjoy high trust. They got 67 percent and 71 percent, respectively. But both officials have been edged out by the most trusted Filipino today: “Sir Chief” who got 90 percent.

krissy
The trust ratings of Senate President Enrile, and presidential sisters Kris Aquino, Ballsy Aquino-Cruz and Pinky Aquino-Abellada also plummeted. In contrast, Viel Aquino-Dee’s trust rating was unchanged.

The survey also revealed that Filipinos have little trust on “candidates who sing on TV,” “candidates who promise to give us food,” “candidates who use ‘po’ and ‘opo’ 100 times every minute.”

Not one of the 2,000 survey respondents trusted “candidates who dance the Gangnam Style in campaign sorties.”

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS’ DAY EVERYONE!

MALACAÑANG REACTS

1 04 2011

Dear Readers:
Yesterday, I received a letter from Malacañang. I must admit, I was stunned. I didn’t expect this from the palace. Should I reply? I need your advice.

Do you think this is harassment?
Should I stop writing about the President?
Should I answer this letter?
Do you know what day is today?
It’s April Fool’s Day!
Ingat!

Have a safe, healthy, and fun weekend!
