Embattled Senator Manny Villar topped the latest SWS presidentiables survey with 33% followed by former President Erap Estrada with 25%. Tied for third place are Senators Chiz Escudero and Mar Roxas with 20% each; in fourth place is Vice President Noli De Castro with 19% while Senator Loren Legarda is in fifth place with 15%.
The 1,500 respondents in the survey conducted from June 19 to June 22 were not given a list to choose from but were simply asked to provide the names of three presidentiables whom they wish to succeed Mrs. Arroyo.
