PNoy govt gets high trust rating

By Maricel Cruz | Sep. 20, 2013 at 12:02am
Some lawmakers on Thursday welcomed the latest Social Weather Stations survey revealing a high public approval rating for the Aquino administration.

The survey was conducted on June 28 to 30, and it showed that 75 percent of the adults surveyed said they were satisfied with the government’s performance.

Sixteen percent of those surveyed were ambivalent while 9 percent were dissatisfied, resulting in a “very good” net score of +66 percent.

That score was 13 points higher than the “very good” +53 rating recorded three months earlier and higher than the +64 rating in September and November 2010.

SWS polled 1,200 adults nationwide and the survey had a margin of error of +/-3 percent (national) and +/-6 percent (area percentages).

Cavite Rep. Elpidio Barzaga, House Deputy Majority Leader Sherwin Tugna, AKO-Bicol party-list Rep. Rodel Batocabe, and Isabela Rep. Rodolfo Albano III said the latest SWS survey reflected the President’s commitment to good government.

“PNoy [Aquino] won under his slogamn ‘kung walang corrupt walang mahirap’,” Barzaga said, noting that the recent filing of cases against three senators and several congressmen linked to the alleged P10-billion pork barrel scam “is  concrete proof  of the President’s campaign against graft and corruption.”

Said Batocabe: “Our people know that he is an honest and sincere leader and is able to convey his message and programs to the people.”

Albano said “As long as he [Aquino] does not change his attitude and style [of leadership], he will always be a symbol of good governance.”

Tugna said the SWS only proved that the pork barrel scandal had strengthened the “people’s trust in the leadership and integrity of the President.”

Paranaque Rep. Gustavo Tambunting, a neophyte, described the SWS survey as “welcome news.”
