The survey, conducted by Taylor Nelson Sofres (TNS) of London, from January 28 to February 3, with 3,000 respondents, placed Aquino at the head of the pack with 42% followed by Villar with 31%. In third place was former president Joseph “Erap” Estrada with 12%.

Another poll conducted by the independent survey firm the Issues and Advocacy Center (The Center) had different results. Senators Aquino and Villar reportedly shared a statistical tie of 27% based on the feedback of their 1,800 respondents.

…the presidential election might end up as a five-way race with Estrada at the third spot with 17%, followed by Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro and Senator Richard “Dick” Gordon with 14% and 8% of the votes respectively.

In The Center’s survey, for the vice presidential race, Senator Mar Roxas reportedly led the polls at 37% with Senator Loren Lagarda in second with 28%. NP candidate Legarda told GMA News that she’s not concerning herself with surveys, stating that they’re merely a part of an on-going psychological warfare or “psywar.”
