A recent survey by Pulse Asia Inc. found that 8 in 10 Filipinos approved President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration’s response to the novel coronavirus crisis.
KAMI learned that the face-to-face poll, involving a total of 1,200 respondents, was conducted from September 14 to 20. Its result was released on Thursday, October 8.
In a Facebook post made by the said public opinion polling body, 84 percent of the respondents have “positive opinion” on the government’s efforts against COVID-19.
Meanwhile, 6 percent of the survey participants disapproved the efforts of current administration in flattening the curve and controlling the spread of the virus.
The same survey also found that one out of 10 Filipinos is undecided about the government’s response to the health crisis.
Pulse Asia conducted the face-to-face poll amid the numerous criticisms that President Duterte and his government have been receiving with regards to the pandemic.
It can be remembered that a few days ago, the country’s chief executive enjoyed a record-breaking trust rating of 91 percent. It was 4 points higher than the 87 percent that he received in December.
Rodrigo Duterte is considered as one of the most popular Presidents in the world. He won during the 2016 elections, edging out his opponents by million votes.
He recently slammed Facebook after several “advocacy” accounts of the Philippine military were shut down.
The said chief executive and Angel Locsin were also hailed as the “Most Admired Man and Woman” in the Philippines for 2020.
