Duterte shrugs off poll rating results

Updated

By Argyll Cyrus Geducos

President Duterte shrugged off anew the conflicting trust and satisfaction ratings bared in the survey of two pollsters this month.

In his speech during the celebration of the 38th Masskara Festival in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Duterte reiterated his resolve to just concentrate on his job.

“Ako, trabaho lang. Wala akong pakialam sa ratings. Tapos na ang ratings ko (I’ll just do my job. I don’t care about the ratings. I’m over that),” he said Sunday evening.

Duterte was referring to his six-million vote lead during the previous elections.

“Either I go up or down, I don’t give a shit,” he strongly added.

On Friday, a new Pulse Asia survey showed that the Duterte Administration got “majority approval ratings” for its handling of several issues like disaster response and the fight against criminality.

Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that the positive response showed that Filipinos were already feeling the “genuine change,” as promised during Duterte’s campaign.

“The survey results indeed underscore [that] the President’s promise of genuine change to have safe neighborhoods and peaceful communities under a trustworthy government has been felt by people on the ground,” Abella said in a statement.

But before this, Duterte suffered a significant dip in his trust and satisfaction rating in the third quarter survey of Social Weather Station (SWS).

Malacañang earlier said that the dip in the ratings was expected as the people are now measuring their expectations.

Duterte, in an interview aired over state-run PTV-4, said that he was not interested in the ratings, and would continue to work even if the survey numbers plummet to zero.

    • sam nicolas

      almost all politicians now who is questioning our president have in the past asked for his help and they have approached him. they should be exposed on who they really are as they are only after fame and publicity and no real credibility in questioning our president and his policies. they are just making noise so the people will get their attention as the president and his government is doing a good job.

      Yellow knows that D30 beat their ass in the last election, BUT, they cannot accept defeat.!!!! They thought that they will be in power for the next 18 yrs. And that is what TRAIDOR Trillanes is trying to do, even though he is a member of the Naciolnalista Party, a good example of how TRAIDOR he is.

    WOW – trolls unite is the shout. What an impressive reaction from just two trolls masquerading as many. The man has earned his international fame in the halls of infamy and tyranny. But still the blind will grovel and believe in all.

    • Jose Samilin

      Nobody believe this type of negativity anymore!!

  • Gisingbayanko

    Dream on…a society founded on lies, fake news, injustice, EJK, fabricated evidence, bribery, personal vendetta, tyranny, conspiracy of the legislative, judiciary with the President to impose his twisted justice will self destruct as proven by history.

      Mate…it is because of people like you that keep the country poor…the country will never have a “perfect” president..in terms of achievements…Marcos is probably the best president the country has ever had…of course those brainwashed with the martial law shits will hugely disagree…but compare Philippines to what it was during the Marcos era…versus Aquino, Ramos, Arroyo, Erap times…Marcos’ achievements are far more compared to the past president’s combined…but Duterte is probably the one closest to Marcos in terms of vision for the country…and yet people like you come here and throw shits at him on this forum…as if you have the smallest of clues what is best for the country…let me ask you this then mate…who do you think then should be the president of the Philippines?

      • Gisingbayanko

        Macoy could have been one of the good presidents except he was the biggest thief that bankrupt the PH Treasury; made country the sickman of Asia which couldn’t even afford to buy or import oil after his family plundered the taumbayan. In that sense, he’s an outstanding plundered.

        • Mark Valenzuela

          Dont get me wrong. im not for marcos but if the international and local courts didnt find him guilty for plunder, then what is the basis of this claim. evidence shows that he didnt, he has a lot of money before he became president. just saying only no need to argue

          • Gisingbayanko

            Just because the courts didn’t find the deposed dictator guilty of plunder doesn’t make him innocent; it’s question of money and having wise but twisted lawyers like his family have in circumventing the laws that matters in the end.

            kaya hindi umaasenso ang pilipinas eh kc nde ka mkamove on, wala ka nmn magawa abswelto na cla, ngyn mgrally ka kc nde nasunod ang gusto mo, parang childish na behavior!!!

          • Gisingbayanko

            It’s a question of taking of a historical view and right timing. It ain’t over till it’s over like in the cases of every tyrant like Hitler, Gaddafi, Stalin, Lenin, Saddam Hussein…

            Lame denial is the the natural reaction when you’re guilty especially, when you support and vehemently defend a blood thirsty leader who loves to kill innocent people based on mere suspicion and chismis.

          • Mark Valenzuela
