MANILA, Philippines – Just like his performance in the first presidential debate last month, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte once again emerges as the top choice of netizens following the first round of the presidential debate held in Cebu City on Sunday, March 20.

Senator Miriam Santiago earlier announced she will be skipping the event to undergo a clinical trial for an anti-cancer pill.
Rappler editors and adjudicators however called the first round of the debate in favor of a more combative Poe.
The debate, the second in the series, was co-organized by the Commission on Elections, TV5, The Philippine Star, Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, and UP Cebu.
In the first round of the debate, the candidates were asked a series of questions by a panel of journalists.
The Rappler mood meter showed a spike of Afraid votes when the talk turned to rule of law and corruption complaints against the Vice President's son.
Angry votes dominated the mood meter when the discussion turned to the word war between Poe and Binay, with Poe hitting Binay on corruption allegations against him, as the Vice President touched on the sensitive topic of Poe's citizenship, accusing her of being ashamed of being a Filipino. – Rappler.com
