Duterte still most approved and trusted: Pulse Asia

PRESIDENT Duterte remains the most approved and trusted among the top officials of government, with eight of 10 Filipinos saying they trust him and are satisfied with his performance, the June 24 to 29 Ulat sa Bayan survey of Pulse Asia showed.

The survey, which involved 1,200 respondents nationwide, was conducted about a month after the President declared martial law in Mindanao on May 23.

Other events prior to the conduct of the survey include the June 2 attack in Resorts World Manila by a former government employee that killed 38 individuals; the questions about Duterte’s health after he missed the Independence Day celebration and had been absent from the public eye for almost a week; the class between the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and government forces in North Cotabato last June 22;  and the downgrading of charges against policemen involved in the death of former Albuera, Leyte mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr.

The survey showed that 82 percent of respondents approved of his performance in the last three months (up from 78 percent in March) with only 5 percent (down from 7 percent) showing disapproval.

Vice President Leni Robredo and Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III were statistically tied as the second most approved official with 61 percent (up from 58 percent) and 62 percent (up from 55 percent) respectively. The disapproval ratings of Robredo (17 percent from 16 percent) and Pimentel (9 percent from 8 percent) were statistically unchanged.

Close to a majority or 48 percent (up from 42 percent) approved of the performance of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno while 13 percent expressed disapproval (up from 11 percent).

Forty-three percent approved of the performance of Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez (up from 40 percent) while 14 percent disapproved (unchanged from March).

Both the President and Senate President obtained majority approval ratings across all geographic areas (75 percent to 95 percent and 54 percent to 71 percent, respectively) and socio-economic classes (79 percent to 84 percent and 60 percent to 62 percent, respectively).

The Vice President has majority approval ratings in most geographic areas and socio-economic groupings (60 percent to 66 percent and 60 percent to 72 percent, respectively), except in Metro Manila and Class ABC (both at 44 percent).

The Speaker only obtained a majority approval rating in Mindanao (62 percent) and the Chief Justice got majority approval scores in Mindanao and socio-economic class ABC (both 55 percent).

The survey also showed Duterte as the most trusted official for 81 percent (up from 76 percent) of respondents, and only 5 percent saying they distrust him (unchanged from March).

Robredo and Pimentel both garnered majority trust ratings with 60 percent (up from 56 percent) and 58 percent (up from 51 percent), respectively. Seventeen percent (statistically unchanged from 16 percent) said they distrust the Vice President while 8 percent (unchanged from March) said they distrust the Senate President.

Four out of 10 said they trust Alvarez (41 percent up from 37 percent) and Sereno (43 percent up from 40 percent) while one out of 10 (14 percent and 15 percent ) said they distrust the Speaker and Chief Justice, respectively.

The President and Senate President both obtained majority trust ratings across all geographic areas (73 percent to 97 percent and 53 percent to 69 percent, respectively) and socio-economic groupings (77 percent to 85 percent and 55 percent to 62 percent, respectively).

Robredo got majority trust scores in most geographic areas and socio-economic groupings (57 percent to 66 percent and 60 percent to 69 percent, respectively), except in Metro Manila (44 percent) and socio-economic class ABC (43 percent).

The Speaker and the Chief Justice only got majority trust scores in Mindanao (57 percent and 50 percent, respectively), while majority from Class ABC (51 percent) cannot say if they trust or distrust Alvarez.

Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said the improved approval and trust ratings of Duterte are “pleasant news,” but he is confident the President would not claim all the credit for himself.

“He will give due credit to his Cabinet and to the participation of all agencies. As he very well knows it’s not just him, although he stands --- he stands --- he’s quite, he’s out front. But he will credit it also to the participation of the rest of the Cabinet and the different agencies,” Abella said.

The Pulse Asia survey results also showed that majority approved of the performance of and trusts the Senate, House of Representatives and Supreme Court.

The Senate scored the highest approval rating with 59 percent (up from 55 percent) followed by the Supreme Court with 58 percent (almost unchanged from 57 percent), and the House with 55 percent (up from 50 percent).

Only one in 10 disapproved of the performance of the Senate (unchanged at 10 percent), House (unchanged at 11 percent) and Supreme Court (12 percent up from 11 percent).

The Senate also scored the highest trust rating with 57 percent (up from 54 percent) followed by the Supreme Court with 56 percent (up from 54 percent), and the House with 52 percent (up from 49 percent).

Eight percent (unchanged from March) distrusts the Senate and the House (almost unchanged at from 9 percent) while 10 percent distrusts the Supreme Court (up from 9 percent).

Vice President Leni Robredo welcomed the latest Pulse Asia survey.

“We are grateful for and humbled by the continued trust given to us by our fellow Filipinos, as shown by the higher ratings in the recent Pulse Asia survey,” the Office of the Vice President (OVP) said in a statement.

“This further strengthens our resolve to keep working hard to reach out to our fellow Filipinos -- to listen to their concerns, to uphold their interests, and to engage them as partners for building a better, fairer society for all, especially the last, the least, and the lost,” it added.

Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III said the 7 percent jump in his approval ratings is a tribute to the performance of all senators, not just himself. – With Angela Lopez de Leon
