Inday Sara and Digong tandem shaping up in 2022

The next national elections are still far away but things are slowly shaping up.

Is the country ready for Sara Duterte-Carpio and Rodrigo Duterte tandem in 2022, after the end of the latter?

As for the Visayas and Mindanao region, the answer seems to be Yes., in a pre-election survey the daughter and father tandem emerged as the top bets.

The independent and non-commissioned survey dubbed “Pahayag VisMin 2019” showed that Davao city mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio topped the list of 21 potential candidates for president, with 35 percent of the respondents selecting her. She was followed by Sen. Mary Grace Poe with 11 percent; Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko” Domagoso, 7.8 percent; Sen. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao, 5.5 percent; Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, 4.6 percent; and Sen. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, 4.5 percent.

The said survey was conducted from Nov. 15 to 19, 2019 involved 2,000 registered voters from the Visayas and Mindanao, who were randomly chosen. It was released by political consultancy firm PUBLiCUS Asia Inc. (PAI), while data was processed by its data science arm, VOX Opinion Research.
The poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.19 percent across the entire survey population and +/- 3.1 percent within the respective VisMin clusters.

For the second highest position of the land, President Duterte emerged as top bet among 21 potential candidates, garnering 11.6 percent. He was trailed by the Presidential first daughter Davao city mayor Inday Sara, who got 11.5 percent.
Following them were Manila Mayor Isko Domagoso with 9.85 percent; Senator Grace Poe, 9.05 percent; House Speaker Peter Allan Cayetano, 8.85 percent; and senator Manny Pacquiao, 7.25.
The results of the poll showed that the Duterte brand could be stronger in Mindanao and the Visayas bailiwicks than what was originally expected according to PAI Executive Director and firm spokesman Aureli Sinsuat.
Sara is untouchable in Mindanao

Sinsuat pointed out that mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio garnered a whopping 54.1 percent of the Mindanao votes, while the race was too close to call in the Visayas.

Duterte-Carpio’s win was only 16.1 percent in the Visayas, followed by Grace Poe-Llamanzares with 13.5 percent and Isko Domagoso with 11.5 percent. With a cluster margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent, this means that the Top 3 choices for President in the Visayas are statistically tied, Sinsuat said.

“Mindanao only has a 2-percent advantage over [the] Visayas in terms of overall voting population, with 23 percent of total voters nationally registered in Mindanao versus 21 percent registered in [the] Visayas. Despite this, the overwhelming preference for Mayor Duterte-Carpio among Mindanaoan respondents essentially nullified the tight results in Visayas,” Sinsuat said.

“Mindanaoan voters catapulted President Duterte to the presidency in 2016. This goes to show that a united Mindanao voting bloc is a force to be reckoned with in the 2022 elections,” he added.
