Three-time senator and Antique representative Loren Legarda topped the latest “Tugon ng Masa” survey conducted by OCTAResearch from February 12 to 17, 2022.
Awareness for Legarda was at 100% with 66% voting for her in the upcoming Senatorial Race which puts her in the top spot.
The survey came from 1,200 respondents with a 3% margin of error.
Legarda, who is currently busy with the campaign trail, previously said that regardless of the ranking in surveys, she’s grateful that people recognized the work she has done both as senator and representative of Antique.
“Yung ranko naman sa survey ay numero lamang bagamat ako’y nagpapasalamat. Heartfelt gratitude,” she said during an interview with Politiskoop last week. “ Makapaglingkod lang ay okay na po sa atin yan. Ang importante ay kayo’y nasa isang posisyon. The Senate is a platform for me to do the good I want to do for the world.”
In her time in the Senate, Legarda sat as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance. She has also pushed and authored several bills to causes close to her heart such as the Environment, Entrepreneurship, Culture and the Arts, and Education. She is also known for helping in the Health Care Act after authoring the National Health Insurance Act of 2013 allowing affordable and accessible healthcare for many Filipinos.
As Antique representative, Legarda has authored the “One Tablet, One Student Act of 2021,” which seeks to have each student a tablet to use for school for online classes during the pandemic. She has also continued to ensure her fellow Antiquenos get affordable health care and training for small and medium businesses.
Trailing her at second is journalist Raffy Tulfo with 97% awareness and 63% voting for him. Taguig-Pateros 1st District Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano is at third with 100% awareness but just 61% voting for him.
