Lacson calls being behind in surveys a “gift in disguise.”

CITY OF CAGAYAN DE ORO — Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson, a presidential candidate, remarked that trailing behind survey findings in the Visayas and Mindanao was a “gift in disguise.”

Lacson was asked about obtaining zero in the two major regions in Pulse Asia Research’s newest voter preference survey, which covered April 16-21, during a press conference here Thursday afternoon.

“We have support groups here in Cagayan de Oro and throughout the Visayas and Mindanao,” Lacson remarked.

Lacson received a 2% nationwide voter preference, according to Pulse Asia. In the Visayas and Mindanao, however, the presidential candidate received virtually no votes.

In the Pulse Asia poll, Lacson is ranked fifth, after Manila Mayor Isko Moreno (4th) with 4%, Senator Emmanuel Pacquiao (3rd) with 7%, and Vice President Leni Robredo (2nd) with 23%.

With 56 percent of the vote, former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. remained in the first place.

Based on the greeting and support he received during his visits to various sections of Mindanao and the Visayas, Lacson claimed he “did not feel the zero voter preference.”

“We were in Maguindanao’s Ampatuan town earlier, and we were in Mindanao in the past—in Cotabato, in Davao” (region). “We’d been to a lot of areas, and I didn’t get the ‘zero’ percent voter preference that the polls claimed,” the senator remarked.

On the other hand, Lacson’s running mate, vice presidential candidate and Senate President Vicente Sotto III, asked voters to support candidates who have a proven track record of assisting people in disasters.

“Think of those candidates who have helped you when you were in trouble, like the Covid-19, and who are not hiding,” Sotto remarked.

In the same Pulse Asia poll, Sotto was voted second in the vice presidential contest with 18 percent, trailing Marcos’ running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, with 55 percent.
