This is the talk of the town after different surveying firms come up with conflicting statistics on who are gaining or losing in the senatorial race.
Whether it is true or not expect new faces and blood to show their way to the next Congress.
The country will vote on May 13 twelve senators who will enjoy six year-term and be part of the 16th Congress.
Among the new crop of candidates who are now landing in the magic 12 were Cynthia Villar, JV Ejercito, Jackie Enrile, Nancy Binay, Sonny Angara, Grace Poe and now it's Bam Aquino.
Sustaining the momentum is different because no one can be comfortable because the ranking is very shaky that you see your name in the magic 12 for now and a few weeks after, it's no longer there.
There are rumors that surveys are for sale and if you are not a subscriber of the surveying company, chances are your name is not included in the list of candidates or your name is in the last of the list. Surveying companies multiply during campaign to give credence to paying patrons to set trending and dictate pacing on whose gaining or losing popularity.
However, they cannot doctor the top three most popular candidates because it always showed in all surveys. But what about those who are new comers and those names can be found nowhere in the magic 12?
Consistently leading the pact are relectionists Chiz Escudero, Loren Legarda and Alan Cayetano.
Candidates themselves are surprised whenever they learned about the latest survey that they are already out after another surveying outfit claims he is among the magic 12.
In the past, accusations after accusations had been thrown by candidates to their opponents that they pay the surveying companies just to show that they are within striking distance.
Grace Poe is the latest recipients of SWS survey jumping from number 20 in the two last SWS survey now found herself in 11 slot replacing Nancy Binay who is now in 12th slot. The survey was conducted from January 17 to 19. Juan Miguel Zubiri also moved from 9th place to 7th place.
Former Las Pinas Rep. Cynthia Villar is the first recipient of a frog leap from 19.5 percent in September now enjoying 52.7 percent in November survey, the biggest gainer in Pulse Asia survey. She now holds 6th place.
Surprisingly, Nancy Binay, daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay also posted surprises by posting 41.3 percent from previous 27.4 percent giving her solo in the 10th place of Pulse Asia survey.
StratPOLLS latest captivating survey shows that Bam Aquino, the first cousin of President Noynoy Aquino made a giant leap from number 19 to number 12.
StratPOLLS claims that the marked improvement registered by Aquino and Binay could be credited to "visibility" where all of the candidates for Senate seats had been barnstorming cities during the past weeks in the National Capital Region (Metro Manila) as well as vote-rich provinces in Luzon and the Visayas.
