The overpriced Makati City Parking Building has done a tremendous damage to the Vice President Jejomar Binay in the lastes Pulse Asia survey in the presidential race for 2016.
Binay dropped into 31 percent from 41 percent on Monday’s newly released Pulse Asia survey. On the other hand, Binay’s counterpart DILG Secretary Manuel Roxas II garnered 13 percent to get the second place.
Binay’s positive outlook to the people dwindled because of his name being dragged corruptions in Makati.
While the dip was consistent among all locations and classes, those in the upper classes of A, B, and C showed the greatest drop at 13 percentage points, from 36 percent in June to only 23 percent in September.
Trailing behind Binay and Roxas were Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago (11 percent), Senator Grace Poe (10 percent), former president and Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada (10 percent), Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero (5 percent), Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. (4 percent), former vice president Noli De Castro (3 percent) and Philippine Red Cross (PRC) chairman Richard “Dick” Gordon.
As the controversy continues to evolve, it is expected that Binay’s rating would continue to decrease until he answers the allegations.
