MANILA, Philippines – Presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte led a Pulse Asia Survey anew, with a 12-point advantage over his closest rival.

The Pulse Asia Pulso ng Bayan nationwide survey released on Tuesday was conducted April 16 to 20, covering the days when the mayor earned criticisms for his rape remark. In that survey, Duterte garnered 35 percent followed by Sen. Grace Poe with 23 percent.

Meanwhile, Liberal Party standard-bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and United Nationalist Alliance standard-bearer Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay placed third and fourth with scores of 17 percent and 16 percent, respectively. Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago obtained a score of two percent.

Based on the latest Pulse Asia survey, Duterte is the most preferred presidential bet in Metro Manila with 40 percent of respondents choosing him, Visayas with 32 percent and Mindanao with 58 percent. Poe is the top choice of Balance Luzon with 28 percent.

Duterte also won over the respondents from all social classes: Class ABC with 43 percent, Class D with 32 percent and Class E with 40 percent.

The latest Pulse Asia survey had 1,800 respondents and an error margin of ± 2.3 percent at a 95-percent confidence level. 

Duterte also led the Pulse Asia survey commissioned by ABS-CBN and released last Sunday as well as the Social Weather Stations survey first published on BusinessWorld on Monday.
