According to an anonymous political analyst and a campaign leader based in London, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte can raise as much as 2 billion Pesos or more worth of campaign funds and that’s enough to win the election for most cases. He said, “You can see that even without campaigning, the Mayor still managed to lead on the survey.”
The latest survey which was conducted September 8 to 14, Grace Poe is number 1 while Mar Roxas, Vice President Jejomar Binay and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte are in a virtual tie for second place.
There are already groups established all over the world consisting of OFW campaigning for Mayor Duterte and they are ready to raise 1 billion Pesos to support the Mayor in his presidential candidacy.
A group of businessmen also pledge 1 billion Pesos to support Duterte’s candidacy. Atty. Vitaliano Aguirre, Duterte’s supporter said there are “no strings attached” to the campaign contribution promised by the group.
September 26, Sunday, a huge crowd of supporters gathered in Quirino Grandstand Manila to ask Mayor Duterte to run for the highest position. Most of them donated to raise more funds to support the campaign.
Aguirre cited the text message sent by Duterte to his followers, asking to be given more time to do some ”final soul-searching.” The Mayor has one month remaining to decide if he will answer the people’s request.
