President Duterte remains popular

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Roa Duterte maintained his approval and trust ratings in the latest public opinion survey.

This was shown in a non-commissioned Pulse Asia survey report that eight in 10 Filipinos or 80 percent of the respondents said they approved the Duterte presidency. Only seven percent said otherwise, while 13 percent were undecided.

Also, 80 percent expressed “big trust” for Duterte, only six percent said they have small trust or no trust at all, while 14 percent were undecided.

The decline in Duterte’s approval and trust ratings were insignificant. He enjoys the overwhelming trust of 93 percent of his fellow Mindanaoans, 86 percent from residents of Luzon, 76 percent in Metro Manila, and 72 percent in the rest of Luzon.

These were the same results for public satisfaction with Duterte’s performance except that it was at 92 percent in Mindanao.

Across economic classes, the poorest class E expressed highest trust and approval ratings at 85 and 86 percent, respectively.

Eighty percent of those in class D said they trusted Duterte, while 79 percent said they approved his presidency. Only 74 percent in class ABC expressed trust, while 75 percent shared their approval of Duterte.

The survey showed that the public was not swayed by “political noise” amid a demolition job against President Duterte. Instead, he got the highest ratings over other top government officials.

Vice President Leni Robredo got a distant second with a 57 percent approval rating and 55 percent trust rating. She was followed by Senate President Koko Pimentel, with 55 percent approval, 52 percent trust ratings.

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno lagged behind, with 33 percent approval ratings, respectively. They both garnered a 31 trust rating.

President Duterte, Pulse Asia concluded, retained the biggest approval and trust ratings, despite various issues faced by his administration, such as the controversies surrounding his War on Drugs.

***

Incidentally, just before the end of the 2017 Association of Asian Nations Summit in Manila, President Duterte up-ended regional diplomacy and his country’s ties with major powers, and put ASEAN on par with the superpowers. 

Soon after, the much awaited visit of United States President Donald Trump finally happened, despite the efforts of the political opposition to stop it.

President Duterte’s critics did not want Trump to visit the Philippines for various reasons, such as his visit would overshadow their calls to put an end to human rights abuses by government forces as a result of Duterte’s war on illegal drugs.

Trump did not bring up the issue, according to a report by Get Real Post.com. Instead during their 40-minute meeting, they discussed trade deals which would enhance trade agreements between the Philippines and the United States.

Trump and Duterte have so much in common. They are both out-spoken, the opposite of their respective predecessors.

Indeed, President Trump gave President Duterte the thumbs-up during his visit.
