President Rodrigo Duterte is still the most trusted government official in the country based on the latest survey of the Pulse Asia Research, Incorporated released on Wednesday (July 17).

Pulse Asia reported that Duterte got an 85 percent approval and trust rating in the survey conducted from June 24 to 30.

The figure was two points below the 87 percent that Duterte received in March.

Only three percent of the 1,200 survey respondents said they disapprove of Duterte’s performance as chief executive, 4 percent claimed to have small or no trust in him while 11 percent were undecided.

Earlier this month, Duterte also got a new personal record-high satisfaction rating of 80 percent despite the ramming incident near Recto Bank in June, according to the survey of Social Weather Stations.

Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo, meanwhile, obtained a 55 percent approval rating and 52 percent trust rating; 26 percent claimed they have small or no trust in her while 24 percent disapproved of her performance as vice president.

Senate President vicente Sotto III also enjoyed high ratings in the latest survey, garnering 77 percent approval rating and 73 percent trust rating.

Pulse Asia noted that approval is the predominant opinion as regards the work of President Duterte and Senate President Sotto across geographic areas. vice-President Robredo enjoys majority approval in most geographic areas and socio-economic groupings, with only Metro Manilans and those in Class ABC withholding majority scores from her.

On the other hand, former House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo got 26 percent approval rating and 22 percent trust rating while Supreme Court Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin obtained 41 percent approval rating and 35 percent trust rating.

Among the key issues that dominated headlines during the survey period were the reported ramming of a Filipino fishing vessel in Recto Bank; the explosion in Indanan, Sulu; the public school teachers’ plea for pay hike; fraud allegations in the May 2019 polls; the call made by 11 United Nations experts for the conduct of a probe on the human rights situation in the Philippines; deportation from Hong Kong of former DFA Secretary Albert del Rosario and Philhealth “ghost” dialysis claims.

Pulse Asia said it has 95 percent confidence level in the survey results with an error margin of +/-2.8 percent.
