The vice president still ranked 6th among possible 2022 presidential bets, with a rating of 8 percent.

Robredo, however, saw a significant increase by 2 percent in voter preference from her 6 percent score in June.

“We are grateful for the continued trust and support for VP Leni reflected in the substantial increases in both her approval and trust ratings,” her spokesman Barry Gutierrez said in statement.

“She has worked tirelessly throughout this pandemic, and it is good to know that many of our fellow Filipinos see and appreciate this, despite the unrelenting campaign of fake news and lies against the VP,” he added.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte remained the top choice for president in the 2022 elections based on the latest Pulse Asia survey results released on Wednesday.

The poll, conducted from Sept. 6 to 11 with 2,400 adult respondents nationwide, showed Duterte garnered a 20 percent preference rating, down from her 28 percent score last June.

Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. ranked second to President Duterte’s eldest daughter with 15 percent, followed by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno at 13 percent and Senator Manny Pacquiao at 12 percent.

They were followed by Senator Grace Poe (9 percent), Robredo (8 percent), Senator Panfilo Lacson (6 percent), Senator Alan Peter Cayetano (4 percent), and Senator Bong Go (3 percent).

While she remains open and ready to seek the presidency, Robredo has been aware her low survey ratings and it is one of the reasons holding her back from joining the 2022 presidential race.

Robredo historically lags in presidential preference surveys but in 2016, she went from 1 percent to winning the vice presidency against formidable opponents and politicians.
