The Pulse Asia, in its survey held December 14 to 21 last year, revealed Friday that Sotto got a 74-percent approval rating, which was higher by one percentage point compared to September.

The Senate chief also maintained his 66-percent trust rating.

“It’s most probably the performance of the Senate and our shepherding that gets the approval and the trust of our people,” Sotto said in a text message.

Aside from its chief, the Senate, as an institution, saw increases in its approval and trust ratings in the latest Pulse Asia poll.

The people’s approval rate for the Senate rose to 69 percent in December from September’s 63 percent. Public trust was also higher at 65 percent, from the previous survey’s 61 percent.

With the good figures, Sotto assured that the Senate will remain independent and will always hear the people.

“We will always be independent and sensitive to the pulse of our countrymen,” he said.
