A survey (which I will not name here) commissioned by several people and businessmen shows that Chiz Escudero is most likely to top the 2013 elections. Escudero got 73% of the votes of respondents. Following him is Senator Loren Legarda with a 61%, then Enrile, Cayetano and Honasan.
Honasan is followed by Trillianes, then JV Ejercito, Koko Pimentel, Ed "Sonny" Angara, and Dick Gordon. So that makes your top ten.
Former Congressman and now Customs chief Ruffy Biazon got 35%, Zubiri (34.3), and Hontiveros. These names complete the magic 13.
Those struggling to get into the magic 10 are:
Binay, Abby (VP's daughter), Jamby Madrigal, Cynthia Villar, Manong Ernie Maceda and Jun Magsaysay.
The newbies who are aching to go to the Senate are:
Ace Barbers, Joey de Venecia, Bam Aquino, Teddy Casino, Mitos Magsaysay, Rudy Farinas and Erin Tanada.
And who among these names are legitimately "newbie" Well, its Teddy Casino. The rest are either members of political dynasties or has beens waiting in the wings to re-establish power.
Who has the heart for the poor and the downtrodded? Its Erin Tanada.
