This week’s Long View

Marcos, by numbers

BBM got 13.8M votes in his VP bid. Imee got 15.8M votes to earn a Senate seat. Votes gained amidst the loudness of the anti-Marcos campaigners. What does these numbers indicate? It indicates the Marcoses have a voting base. Conservatively, it can be set 13M….

Do the math. Projected registered voters is 61M. Voter turnout the past 3 presidential election is 77%. If the winning candidate just got on average 39% , and the Marcoses already have locked in votes of 13M, how much additional votes they need to campaign for?
