Poe unfazed by decline in numbers in latest Pulse Asia survey


Despite the decline of her numbers, presidential candidate Senator Grace Poe said she is unfazed by the recent survey results.

In the latest Pulse Asia survey commissioned by ABS-CBN, the former frontrunner is now statistically tied at second place with the administration bet Mar Roxas.

Poe said she has not lost hope, saying that previous elections have proven surveys wrong.

"Pagdating dito sa mga survey ginagalang natin ito. Syempre kailangan tapatan ng enerhiya ang makinarya ng administrasyon ang makinarya ng iba. Ako naman ay patuloy pa rin na nag-iikot at hindi naman nahihinaan ng loob [I respect the surveys. We will match the machinery of the administration and of our rivals. I will continue campaigning and I have not lost hope]," she said.

"Nung tumakbo si FPJ noon, sinabi ay talo siya sa NCR pero nung lumabas yung election overwhelmingly nanalo [When FPJ ran, surveys said he will lose in NCR but he won overwhelmingly]... Diba si Senator Trillanes din noon ang layo layo sa survey biglang naka pasok na bilang senador. Ganun din naman si Vice President Binay na ten points behind ilang araw bago yung election [Sen. Trillanes was also lagging in surveys but won in the senatorial polls. Even Vice President Binay, who was 10 points behind, a few days before the elections]."

On Wednesday, Poe signed the covenant for 'TRUTH' or truthful, responsible, upright, transparent, and honest elections.

Poe is the third presidential candidate to sign that covenant after Roxas and Vice President Jejomar Binay.
