MANILA, Philippines – Although he is “not bothered” by the 2% score he achieved in the latest Pulse Asia presidential poll, Senator Panfilo Lacson said he believes his performance in interviews and the forums should have gained support for his candidacy.

“After presidential talks and forums, I thought I should win instead of [losing] support,” Lacson said in a statement Monday.

Nevertheless, the senator promised to continue “this fight until election day”.

“Polls are not elections. The last time I heard about it, the elections will take place on May 9th. It doesn’t bother me at all just because the numbers I feel on the ground are different from what the polls are indicating,” he added.

In a Pulse Asia presidential poll held in February and released earlier on Monday, Lacson again fell behind four of his opponents, earning 2% voter preference – a drop of two points.

Pulse Asia said its Feb. 18-23 survey was conducted face-to-face and involved 2,400 registered voters, who were asked which candidate they would vote for for president if the May elections were held on Election Day. .
