Mike Defensor is still stuck in the 15th place.
According to Dr Mahar Mahangas:
There is a possibility for a 10-2 outcome due to a slight gain by the opposition or an 8-4 outcome if the administration catches up.
According to The Purple Phoenix:
Despite the unraveling of the Genuine Opposition, most of their candidates figured in the top 12 of the latest SWS survey. If this does not show how most Filipinos hate the current administration then I don't know what.
Despite being dropped by the Genuine Opposition, Sharon Cuneta is still a popular figure.
Despite of his movie star statuses, Richard Gomez and Cesar Montano's ranking is still in the twilight zone.
Despite of the numerous Walking 'Tol and Itanim sa Senado posters around the metro, Defensor and Pichay still ranks below the winner circle.
Despite the sacrifices of Boy Abunda, Mike Defensor is still out of the top 12.
Despite being an independent, Gringo is still part of the Magic 12.
Despite of the money spent on his ads, Boom Tarat Tarat is not helping Juan Miguel Zubiri.
By the way, if you are looking for Chavit Singson...he's ranked above Cayetano...Jose Pepito Cayetano. This is not a joke. It's true.
