Former Philippine Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., son of the late dictator, has kept his huge lead in the presidential race, favored by 60% of respondents in last month’s survey by pollster Pulse Asia Research Inc.

Marcos’s support was steady compared to a similar survey in January. His closest rival, Vice President Leni Robredo was favored by 15% of respondents in the recent poll, while third-placer Manila Mayor Isko Moreno got 10%.
