Pulse Asia on Tuesday flagged a fake survey circulating on social media that purported to show that the gap between presidential candidates Bongbong Marcos and Leni Robredo had narrowed.

The pollster said it would release survey numbers via its website, not through social media and that it issued the denial in response to numerous requests for comment.
