A Businessworld-SWS survey shows a tight presidential race if the elections were held today.

It shows 26% of respondents would vote for Senator Grace Poe, 24%, for Vice President Jejomar Binay while 20% chose former DILG Secretary Mar Roxas.

Analysts say the three are statistically tied.

Behind them are Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Senator Bongbong Marcos, Senator Francis Escudero, Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago and former Senator Manny Villar.

This survey comes on the heels of a recent SWS poll that showed Poe on top with Roxas already overtaking Binay.

But the methodology of that survey was questioned since respondents were asked to give up to 3 names on who they think should succeed President Aquino.
