VP's improved approval rating elates Robredo camp

MANILA, Philippines — The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo on Thursday welcomed as another inspiration the latest Pulse Asia survey showing the Vice President’s improved approval rating from 49 percent to 55 percent based on a poll between March and June. 

 

“Nagpapasalamat kami sa patuloy na pagtiwala at pagsuporta ng ating mga kababayan kay VP Leni at sa kanyang trabahong ginagawa,” Atty. Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s spokesperson, said in a statement.

“Muli itong magsisilbing inspirasyon na lalo pang magpursige sa pagsisikap na makatulong sa pag-angat ng buhay ng ating mga kapwa Pilipino, lalo na ‘yung mga nasa laylayan,” he added.

The June 24 to 30 survey among 1,200 respondents also revealed that Robredo got a 52 percent trust rating, a five-point jump from her March’s 47 trust rating.

Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte remained the most trusted government official with an 85 percent approval and trust rating, but it has a decline from 87 percent in March.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III for his part obtained a 77 percent approval rating and a 73 percent trust rating while former House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who got the lowest ratings, had 26 percent approval rating and a 22 percent trust rating. /jpv
