Drilon is statistically tied with Senator Vicente Sotto III, who is under the ticket of Senator Grace Poe, for the number one spot.

The survey shows that 49.4% of votes went to Sotto while Drilon got 48.9%.

Former Senator Panfilo Lacson (3rd-4th), former Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri (5th-6th), Senator Sergio Osmeña III (6th-12th), Congressman Manny Pacquiao (6th-12th), and former Senator Richard Gordon (7th-12th) also made it to the top 12.

Those who have a “statistical chance” of being included in the twelve senatorial seats are Valenzuela Representative Sherwin Gatchalian (27.5%), former Chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Francis Tolentino (25.4%), and Senator and Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Accountability of Public Officers & Investigations (Blue Ribbon) Teofisto “TG” Guingona (24.9%).

With less than six weeks to go before the May 2016 elections, registered voters are identifying seven out twelve of their favored candidates for senator. A third (34%) of 4,000 respondents stated they already have named 12 of their preferred candidates. Only 6.5% of registered voters do not support any senatorial candidate.

The survey of 4,000 respondents was commissioned by ABS-CBN. It ran from March 29 to April 3.
