Those who are convincing Senator Grace Poe to run for the presidency in 2016 are making a big mistake. Just because Poe is a second placer in every survey conducted out there does not guarantee a victory come poll time in 2016. Her placement, a poor 10%, is simply too low to counter a 40% plus survey rating that the Vice president Jejomar Binay gets every single survey.
Honestly, Poe is too young to ascend to a higher position. And I think we are again being misled into thinking that electing her is the best choice for us.
Fact is, we have yet to see and hear a law proposed by Poe. Yes, she has this position on the Freedom on Information bill, yet, others do too. Yes, she has these noisy pronouncements about certain social issues, but that's about it.
The danger of fielding such a candidate such as Poe is THE MINUTE PEOPLE DISCOVER WHO SHE REALLY IS.
AGAIN LET ME REITERATE THIS, AND I BELIEVE HER HANDLERS KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT---THE DANGER IS WHEN PEOPLE DISCOVER THE REAL GRACE POE-LLAMANZARES.
ONE HINT--WHY IS IT THAT THERE IS NO MORE TALK ABOUT THE MISUSE OF THE MALAMPAYA FUNDS?
SECOND HINT---WHAT IS THE BUSINESS INTERESTS OF PEOPLE BEHIND GRACE POE LLAMANZARES?
THIRD HINT----WHO IS GRACE POE LLAMANZARES IN PRIVATE? IS SHE REALLY APPROACHABLE?
These things are still not being revealed yet because there is no need to. Yet, the minute Grace Poe throws her hat unto the ring, then, all bets are off and people will begin hearing and reading things, true things, about Ms. Grace Poe-Llamanzares.
That measly 10% will wither down to a negative rating, I am definitely sure because what we are seeing right now is just a media creation, an invention for us to stay glued with her and see her as a safe bet for the opposition, and a very safe choice as well for this administration.
Yes, yes, young voters are looking for juicy candidates, fresh ones out there. However, we must not be lured into a trap. Just because she got the top senatorial post by the highest number of votes does not mean she deserves the presidency.
