KNP, we've got a problem here
Today reports how FPJ's campaign flopped in Bicol, notwithstanding the presence of comedian Dolphy, Eddie Gutierrez and Bicolano Eddie Garcia in a motorcade to Santo Domingo, Bacacay, Malilipot and Tabaco City:

One resident said the lukewarm reception that his province mates accorded to the campaigning KNP candidates proved that Poe’s popularity and charisma do not work here.

In broken lines, people took to the streets from this town to Tabaco City, but it appeared that they got out of their homes only to get a glimpse of the actor and the members of his party.

There were those who waved and even cheered, but they were few and far between. One woman in Santo Domingo, upon seeing the passing vehicle of Jinggoy Estrada, even flashed a thumbs-down sign.

Another man also hurled back at Estrada’s party the stickers that were thrown to him.

Poe and the Koalisyon ng Nagkakaisang Pilipino candidates have been wildly cheered and even mobbed by residents in every place and province that they have visited since the start of the campaign, until they came to their sorrow here.
