Inescapable: Marcos Jr. Landslide Victory


Ferdinand Bong Bong Marcos Jr. bent on winning the 2022 Election via landslide

Voter turnout on May 9, 2022, was exceptionally high

Several organizations guarded precincts, prayer vigils were held, and both parties called for sobriety. Two hours after closing, the COMELEC transparency server indicated at least 50 percent of voters favor Marcos Jr. By 9 PM; he had 22 million votes over Robredo, who got 10 million.

After 99% of electoral returns were processed on May 11, Bongbong Marcos (BBM) had more than 31 million votes over Leni Robredo, who got 15 million.

He also received the most votes, with 15 out of 17 regions. BBM was the clear winner. His son Sandro ran for congress with a landslide victory as well.

Although there were three deadly shootings,, and incidents of bribery on both sides were alleged—the election was generally peaceful.

CNN Philippines reports 7 million lead of Marcos Jr. over Robredo reflected on COMELEC’s transparency server, just two hours after voting closed.

Local pre-election surveys reflect the same voter preference

Before the May 9 election, BBM was visibly ahead of regional surveys. The same percentage showed more Filipinos favored him on social media. He has twice as many followers compared to Leni Robredo, his closest opponent.

Robredo has long been associated with the “Yellow movement.” She won the vice presidency in 2016 that BBM contested. She ran independently in 2022 and dropped her “yellow association” with the liberal opposition party.

ABS-CBN, a known supporter of the opposition party, reports a massive gap as of 8:32 pm, a few hours after voting closed. Bong Bong Marcos (BBM) won by more than half of the voter’s population as of the closing date.

The following day after the election, BBM continued to lead at 30 million votes over Robredo at 14 million after more than 95% of election returns were processed. A landslide victory for Marcos Jr. is imminent.

“Rewriting history” with ballots

The “Yellow opposition” heavily influenced the country’s politics for nearly 40 years. Still, it was not enough to erase the memory of Marcos. Naturally, they accused their camp of revising history and social media propaganda to regain popularity, supposedly lost after EDSA People Power.

Bong Bong Marcos’ father, the late Ferdinand Sr., was ousted through the efforts of the opposition party, the Catholic church, and the defection of his Defense Secretary and Constabulary Chief.

For the rest of the world, the Marcos regime was a dictatorship that caused death and misery. But for most Pinoys: Marcos remains a hero whose name was tarnished by the EDSA revolution that did not represent the entire nation.

In 2023, Marcos Jr.’s satisfaction rating remains ‘Very good’ but ‘excellent’ for Sara Duterte.
