Statement on the President's Performance and Trust Ratings

Earlier today, Pulse Asia Research, Inc. released its finding on Presidential Performance and Trust Ratings from the March 2017 Ulat ng Bayan survey, conducted from March 15 - 20, 2017. According to the survey, President Duterte's performance rating has dropped 5 points nationally, from 83 percent in December 2016 to 78 in March. Meanwhile, the President's trust rating fell 7 points, from 83 percent last December to 76 percent in March.

In my opinion, this survey does not reflect a significant drop in the President's approval ratings.

Over the past few months, President Duterte has been subjected to an unprecedented amount of international criticism and negative publicity. However, despite all of the attacks launched against him, a commanding super-majority of the Filipino people remains confident in President Duterte's ability to lead our country.

If anything, these results illustrate how deeply the Filipino people trust the President and how much they believe in his vision for the Philippines.
