In the May 9 polls, Pacquiao appears as a dark horse, according to his campaign manager.

MANILA, Philippines — Senator Manny Pacquiao’s ranking in the latest Pulse Asia poll places him as the “black horse” in the next national polls, according to his camp.

“My belief has always been that we will be the underdog in the 2022 elections. If you’re number one or two, you won’t be considered a dark horse, but if you’re number three, you are. You’re not anticipated to win, but you may expect an upset among the favorites “Buddy Zamora, Pacquiao’s campaign manager, remarked in a televised interview.

In the latest Pulse Asia “Pulso ng Bayan Pre-Electoral” survey conducted from April 16 to 21, 2022, former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Vice President Leni Robredo maintained their lead as the top two most desired presidential candidates.

Marcos had a 56 percent approval rating in March, while Robredo had a 23 percent approval rating.

Pacquiao surpassed Isko Moreno for the third position with 7% versus 4%, and Lacson came in fifth with 2%.

The national poll has a 2 percent error margin at the 95 percent confidence level, based on a sample of 2,400 registered voters aged 18 and up.

“Yes, these are only survey results, but we’re standing on two feet. We’re running a major libreng pabahay (free housing) campaign, in which we’re promising free accommodation to everybody who needs it if we win “When asked if Pacquiao feels he can win on May 9, Zamora responded yes.

According to him, Pacquiao’s campaign expects roughly 12 million people to vote for the senator, based on the 35 million housing application papers distributed.

According to him, the camp is also counting on the Christian community’s help.

“We predict the winning vote to be between 16 million and 20 million,” he stated. “I believe these figures will make up for the victor of the presidential elections, just as President Duterte won on 16.8 million votes in 2016,” he added.
