Shall a controversy be an advantage?
Yes! “With reservations.”
The latest survey results released by Pulse Asia clearly shows us that a public shame could lead into positive light where the most talked (so far) senatoriable in social media, former actress Alma Moreno made it into the Top 20 senatorial bets.
According to The Philippine Star, Alma Moreno obtained 15.4%, ranking 19th while Senator Vicente “Tito” Sotto made into the top of the roster with 72.6%.
Moreno made a noise in social media after her interview with Karen Davila in ANC’s Headstart, in which netizens noticed that the senate aspirant was “ignorant” and “clueless” in the most pressing issues of the country.
