The Municipality of San Pedro, which had been declared by President Aquino as a city last March and Laguna's gateway to Metro Manila, has three candidates for mayor: the incumbent mayor Calixto Cataquiz, the incumbent vice mayor Norvic Solidum, and independent candidate Berlene Alberto. Alberto ran for the municipal council in 2010 but did not win a seat (with his 5,100 plus votes). But the contest seems to boil down between Catazquiz and Solidum.
Since no official survey is being conducted in San Pedro, we can compare the status of the two through social media. In the 2010 elections, social media reflected around 20% of the people's awareness and likability to vote for a candidate. The remaining 80% is through traditional campaigning like print media.
Incumbent Mayor Calixto Cataquiz:
Incumbent Vice Mayor Norvic Solidum:
It seems that they are even in Twitter. Facebook is where the battle rages. In likes, Cataquiz has 77.98% against Solidum's 22.02%. However, Solidum kicked back with friends at 77.31%. Cataquiz has 22.69%. Averaging the percentages, Cataquiz will have a slight advantage at 50.22% against Solidum's 49.78%. Still, as said earlier, this only forms 20% of the projected vote. I guess we should just wait and see what happens on May 13.
