MANILA-Vice President Jejomar C. Binay thanked the public for their “vote of confidence” as reflected in the rating he received in Pulse Asia’s survey, which showed that he remains the top pick for president in the May 2016 elections.

“Vice President Binay accepts with gratitude and humility the Pulse Asia survey results where 41 per cent of our people consider him their top choice for president,” said Joey Salgado, vice presidential spokesperson.

“While we have two years to go before the 2016 elections, the Pulse Asia result is a vote of confidence in Vice President Binay's performance and preparedness to lead the nation,” he added.

The poll, conducted from June 24 to July 2, showed that 41 percent of 1,200 respondents would choose Binay as president if the 2016 elections were held today.

Binay’s score for the second quarter was slightly higher than the 40 percent rating he received in Pulse Asia’s March 19-26 survey.

“We recognize that the Pulse Asia and the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) surveys were conducted at a time when political developments could have affected satisfaction and trust with our top leaders and government in general. Nonetheless, the Vice President accepts the results of these surveys and will continue to work to improve the lives of our people,” Salgado said.

In second place is Sen. Grace Poe with 12 percent, followed by Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada with nine percent.

Tied for fourth to sixth places were Sen. Chiz Escudero, Interior Secretary Mar Roxas and Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago with seven percent each.

They were followed by Senators Bongbong Marcos and Alan Peter Cayetano with five percent each.

Sen. Bong Revilla obtained two percent, while Senate President Franklin Drilon and former senator Richard Gordon got one percent each.

Meanwhile, the same survey showed that Poe was the top choice for vice president for 2016, receiving 26 percent of the respondents’ votes.

Escudero came in second with 22 percent while Cayetano got the third place with 14 percent.
