Mood meter

Across the 3 rounds and the one-on-one portion of the debate, Rappler's mood meter registered spikes for "angry" and "annoyed" votes during particularly heated exchanges between the candidates.

Here's what got netizens riled up:

  • Round 1 – the Poe-Binay word war, with Poe criticizing Binay for alleged corruption, and Binay claiming that Poe is ashamed of being a Filipino

The debate, held at the University of the Philippines (UP) Cebu, was co-organized by the Commission on Elections, TV5, The Philippine Star, and the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas.

The third and final presidential debate will take place in Pangasinan on April 24. A vice presidential debate will also be held at the University of Sto Tomas on April 10. –
