Re-electionist Sen. Bam Aquino was the lone opposition in the Magic 12 of the latest Pulse Asia survey and made it to the winners’ circle in three other major pre-election polls less than two weeks before the May 13 elections.
In the latest Pulse Asia survey conducted from April 10 to 14, Sen. Bam landed in a share of 10th-14th spots, with 28.8 percent. This was an improvement for Sen. Bam as he finished in a tie for 11th to 16th places in last month’s Pulse Asia survey.
In Publicus Asia’s #PAHAYAGNationwide poll conducted from April 21-22, 2019 with 2,000 registered voters as respondents, Sen. Bam landed in a tie for 5th to 11th spots. Sen. Bam made it to the Magic 12 of other pre-election surveys conducted by Laylo (9th to 11th spots) and TNS (7th to 13th places).
In a statement, Sen. Bam thanked the people, especially the volunteers, for their trust and confidence that serve as his inspiration during the campaign.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako dahil dumarami ang naniniwala, nakikiisa at tumutugon. Salamat po mga mga matatapang at matitiyagang tumutulong sa atin na laging buo ang loob at walang pagod,” said Sen. Bam.
“Itong buong kampanya, idinulog ko po sa ating mga kababayan ang mga tinrabaho natin sa Senado tulad ng pagsasabatas ng Libreng Kolehiyo at ibinahagi ang mga dapat pang gawin para makatulong sa mga nangangailangan,” he added.
If he wins a second term, Sen. Bam has promised to work for the passage of his Trabaho Center Bill, which seeks to establish Trabaho Centers or job placement offices in public high schools and state universities and colleges (SUCs) to help solve the prevalent problem of jobs mismatch and high unemployment rate in the country.
