MANILA— Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte’s has re­tained his big ma­jor­ity ap­proval and trust rat­ings de­spite pub­lic out­rage over al­leged po­lice abuse in his bru­tal drug war and al­le­ga­tions of hid­den wealth, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Pulse Asia sur­vey.

In its Ulat ng Bayan na­tional sur­vey con­ducted from Septem­ber 24 to 30 via face-to-face in­ter­views with 1,200 adults, Pulse Asia found 80 per­cent of re­spon­dents hav­ing big trust and 6 per­cent hav­ing small trust in Duterte while 14 per­cent were un­de­cided.

The big­gest trust scores for Duterte came from his home re­gion of Min­danao at 93 per­cent and from re­spon­dents who be­long to class E at 85 per­cent.

Mean­while, another 80 per­cent of those sur­veyed said they ap­prove of Duterte while 7 per­cent ex­pressed their dis­ap­proval.

Re­spon­dents from Min­danao at class E gave Duterte his high­est ap­proval rat­ings at 92 per­cent and 86 per­cent, re­spec­tively.

Pulse Asia’s poll came af­ter Duterte suf­fered an 18-point plunge in his net sat­is­fac­tion rat­ing for the third quar­ter of this year, based on the Septem­ber 23 to 27 sur­vey con­ducted by polling firm So­cial Weather Sta­tions. Ac­cord­ing to SWS Pres­i­dent Ma­har Man­ga­has, the drop in Duterte's rat­ings is faster than av­er­age against his pre­de­ces­sors.

Among the news items when both Pulse Asia and SWS con­ducted their sur­veys were the death of mi­nors in the hands of Caloocan City cops that trig­gered pub­lic anger, as well as the lat­est claims of Sen. An­to­nio Tril­lanes IV re­gard­ing Duterte’s al­leged ques­tion­able wealth.

The same Pulse Asia poll also showed Vice Pres­i­dent Leni Ro­bredo also en­joy­ing ma­jor­ity ap­proval and trust scored, although a tad lower than the pre­ced­ing sur­vey.
