Rodrigo Duterte tops poll to be next Philippine vice president

Sara Duterte increases lead as preferred successor to her father in 2022

MANILA -- President Rodrigo Duterte has emerged from a poll on Tuesday as the top choice to be Philippine vice president when elections come around in May 2022, and his daughter, Sara, remains the most popular pick to be his successor as president.

Duterte came through with 18% of the poll, providing a lead that might encourage the feisty 76-year-old to push ahead with his controversial bid.
