Ferdinand “Bong Bong” Marcos, Jr. is 2016 president of the Philippines. That is at least if the result of the TheRanking.com’s survey were to manifest itself into reality. According to the website, which does a survey and ranking of different subjects, the son of the former President Marcos ranks #1, out of 5,330 netizens or online voters, followed closely by the feisty but brilliant Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago. A distant third is Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, and former senator Richard “Dick” Gordon is a distant fourth; even more distant in 5th is former presidential candidate Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro, Jr.
The survey asks the question: Who is your most trusted to become our next Philippine President ‘2016? One would expect Vice President Jejomar Binay to rank higher, but he only comes in a distant 7th, with current President Aquino in 6th if he could be re-elected. Rounding up the top 10 are Senator Chiz Escudero, Secretary Mar Roxas, and former senator Panfilo Lacson in 8th, 9th, and 10th respectively. With the Filipino’s affinity for showbiz and actors/athletes as politicians, there are three who made the top 20: Governor Vilma Santos (#11), former president Joseph Estrada (#14), and Manny Pacquiao (#20).
Do you like the results of this survey? Do you think Bong Bong Marcos would make the best president out of all these possible candidates?
