Sur­vey says Duterte still ‘most ap­proved, trusted’ of­fi­cial

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Stories -

PRES­I­DENT Ro­drigo has re­mained the “most ap­proved and trusted” of­fi­cial among high-rank­ing of­fi­cials in the coun­try, ac­cord­ing to a De­cem­ber 14 to 21 sur­vey con­ducted by poll­ster Pulse Asia.

The same sur­vey showed that House Speaker Glo­ria Ma­ca­pa­gal-Ar­royo was the least ap­proved and trusted of­fi­cial while Vice Pres­i­dent Leni Ro­bredo and Se­nate Pres­i­dent Vi­cente Sotto III en­joyed ma­jor­ity ap­proval and trust scores.

Pulse Asia’s De­cem­ber poll re­sults found that Duterte con­tin­ued to en­joy the high­est ap­proval and trust scores, which were recorded at 81 per­cent and 76 per­cent, re­spec­tively.

The Pres­i­dent’s ap­proval and trust rat­ings both rose by six per­cent­age points and four per­cent­age points, from 75 per­cent and 72 per­cent, re­spec­tively, in Septem­ber 2018.

Duterte, the first Min­danaoan pres­i­dent, re­ceived the high­est ap­proval score in his baili­wick in MIn­danao (96 per­cent), fol­lowed by Visayas (88 per­cent), Lu­zon (74 per­cent), and Metro Manila (69 per­cent).

He also posted ma­jor­ity ap­proval rat­ings in classes ABC (87 per­cent), D (78 per­cent), and E (86 per­cent).

The Chief Ex­ec­u­tive like­wise ob­tained the high­est trust score in Min­danao, which was at 91 per­cent. This was fol­lowed by Visayas (82 per­cent), Lu­zon (69 per­cent), and Metro Manila (67 per­cent).

He also se­cured high trust rat­ings in Classes ABC (79 per­cent), D (74 per­cent), and E (82 per­cent).

Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Sec­re­tary Jose Ru­perto Martin An­da­nar said the poll re­sults were a tes­ta­ment to “how this ad­min­is­tra­tion is at­tuned to the needs of the greater ma­jor­ity.”

“This gov­ern­ment will con­tinue to fo­cus on the goal of giv­ing a ‘com­fort­able life for all’ rid of hard drugs, crim­i­nal­ity and cor­rup­tion,” An­da­nar said in a state­ment on Fri­day, Jan­uary 11.

Mean­while, Ro­bredo posted a 62-per­cent ap­proval rat­ing and 56-per­cent trust rat­ing while Sotto reg­is­tered ap­proval and trust scores of 74 per­cent and 66 per­cent, re­spec­tively.

Ar­royo, as the least ap­proved and trusted of­fi­cial, re­ceived an ap­proval and trust rat­ings of 27 per­cent and 21 per­cent, re­spec­tively.

Pulse Asia in­ter­viewed 1,800 adult Filipinos, us­ing an er­ror mar­gin of ±1.3 per­cent­age points at the 95 per­cent con­fi­dence level.

Sub­na­tional es­ti­mates for each of Manila, the rest of Lu­zon, Visayas, and Min­danao have a ±6.5 per­cent­age points er­ror mar­gin at 95 per­cent con­fi­dence level. (SunS­tar Philip­pines)
