ESCUDERO REMAINS DZRH SURVEY’S TOP 2 SENATE CHOICE

Senatorial candidate and incumbent Sorsogon Governor Chiz Escudero maintained his tight grip on the second spot in the latest nationwide pre-election survey of preferred senators conducted by radio station DZRH less than three weeks before the May 9 Elections.

He was picked by 44.16% of 7,560 respondents polled in the MB-DZRH Pre-election Survey.

The result of the opinion poll, which was conducted on April 18-19 and has a margin of error of +/- 1.13 percent, was released on April 22 via the radio station’s Facebook page.

Escudero, who is seeking a new six-year mandate in the Senate in next month’s polls, has been consistently topping various pre-election surveys.

He was also the top choice for senator among respondents in the nationwide survey conducted by the 1,500-member Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP).
