It doesn't mean na ayaw ng tao kay Pacman, o hindi siya popular. What the voters are saying is: We care for you Manny, that's why we don't want to see you enter politics for now. Concentrate ka muna sa flourishing boxing career mo. That's why we are not voting for you yet.
Sabi ng ng isang Manny Pacquiao fan:
“Matigas kasi ang ulo. Dapat sa boxing na lang siya. Mahal namin siya at ayaw naming pumasok talaga sa maruming pulitika,” said Daniel Aguila, a cigarette vendor from an old Blumentritt neighborhood and a certified Manny fateful.
And that's the sentiment of the majority of pacman fans i know.
