Cesar “Chet” Cuneta and Pasig City Councilor Vico Sotto need more than their famous surnames to have a fighting chance of winning the mayoralty races they are running for.

Results of lobbying firm Publicus Asia’s survey showed Cuneta and Sotto lagging behind their opponents in Pasay and Pasig, respectively.

In Pasay, only five percent of the respondents said they will vote for Cuneta, the brother of Megastar Sharon Cuneta. His standing is a far cry from Congresswoman Emi Calixto Rubiano, who is preferred by 47 percent of voters.

It’s noteworthy, however, that 45 percent of the respondents in Pasay City still do not know who to vote for mayor.

In Pasig City, incumbent mayor Robert Eusebio has the upper hand over Sotto, with 76 percent of the respondents saying they will vote for him.

Only eight percent of voters are for the councilor, the son of celebrities Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes.

Publicus Asia conducted its survey from November 16 to 20 in Metro Manila.
