Davao City Mayor Duterte-Carpio and Sen. Manny Pacquiao have the biggest decline compared to the previous quarter, while Vice President Robredo maintained a steady 6-8% all year.
Outside of the top candidates, Ping Lacson and Alan Peter Cayetano received 3% each while Bong Go emerged with 1%.
Sukat ng Bayan Q3 2021
This independent, non-commissioned study, which reached 1,690 respondents from all over the Philippines, was conducted online from September 23 to October 1, 2021. It is important to note that this was before the candidacy filing period.
Convenience sampling was utilized as the sampling scheme. Specifically, the survey, hosted on SurveyMonkey, was publicized on Facebook for respondents to voluntarily answer. This was supplemented by efforts of reaching out via email and SMS to our existing respondent database (who had previously consented to being contacted for future studies). This means the results of the survey shall not be construed as representative of the Filipino population, and is skewed heavily towards Facebook as the source of respondents.
