MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III and Vice President Jejomar Binay continue to enjoy the approval of majority of Filipinos in the second half of January this year, but ratings were lower in comparison to the November poll last year, the latest survey from Pulse Asia said on Tuesday.

Some 66 percent of Filipinos approved of the President and Binay himself received an approval rating of 69 percent, according to the January 2013 Pre-Election national survey.

The nationwide survey, conducted from January 19 to 30 with a sample of 1,800 registered voters and a ± 2% error margin at the 95 percent confidence level, also showed an appreciation for the performance of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile at 46 percent.

Subnational estimates for the geographic areas covered in the survey have the following error margins at 95 percent confidence level: ± 7 percent for Metro Manila, ±3 percent for the rest of Luzon and ±5 percent for each of Visayas and Mindanao.

Changes in Aquino approval rating

This assessment differed from November last year to January 2012, said Pulse Asia, pointing out a decrease in Aquino’s overall approval rating from 78 percent down back in November 2012 to January’s 66 percent score.

Aquino’s performance was scored with a disapproval rating of six percent while the Vice President earned a disapproval rating of five percent.

A fourth of the public was however undecided whether they approved of the three government officials’ work so far with 28 percent undecided on their rating for Aquino, 25 percent undecided for Binay, and 37 percent undecided for Enrile.

Indecision on ratings on their performances increased, the survey said.

Filipinos critical of Enrile, Belmonte, Sereno

Pulse Asia also noted that Filipinos were now critical of the performances of Enrile, Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr., and Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno who received disapproval ratings of 16 percent, 19 percent, and 18 percent, respectively.

The latest survey also showed a decline in the approval ratings for Belmonte (28 percent) and Sereno (24 percent).

There were still those who were undecided on their assessment on the performances of Belmonte (49 percent undecided) and Sereno (51 percent undecided).

But the most significant reduction noted was on the Senate President’s approval ratings, which affected his ratings across all areas and socio-economic groups.

The survey was conducted at the height of controversies in the Senate, which involved the cash gifts received by several senators from Enrile during Christmas as well as the affirmation of support for Enrile’s leadership in the higher chamber of Congress.

Changes in trust

Pulse Asia noted the decline in Filipinos’ trust rating for the Aquino and Binay despite the “sizeable majority trust ratings” they received (Aquino 68 percent and Binay 71 percent) in the latest survey.

Trust for the President declined between November 2012 and January 2013 by 12 percent.

Likewise, trust ratings for Binay and Enrile also dropped by 10 percent and 21 percent, respectively.

The perceived trustworthiness of both Belmonte and Sereno dropped by 12 percent each.

Distrust ratings for Aquino was at six percent while Binay’s was at five percent while a fourth expressed indecision on their trustworthiness (Aquino 26 percent and Binay 24 percent).

It also said that trust was the plurality sentiment when it came to the trustworthiness of Enrile (46 percent).

But distrust ratings for the lead Senate official was more pronounced at 15 percent, a case which was similar to the distrust scores for Belmonte (21 percent) and Sereno (20 percent).

Nearly four out of 10 Filipinos or 38 percent were unable to say if they trust Enrile while near majority were also unsure on the trustworthiness of Belmonte (48 percent) and Sereno (50 percent).

SC majority trust rating

Only the Supreme Court managed to obtain a majority trust rating of 53 percent.

The Senate only received a 48 percent trust rating while the House of Representatives only got 44 percent of the Filipinos trust.

The ratings for indecision on the said government institutions’ trustworthiness was similar to its trust ratings with 42 percent of Filipinos undecided on whether to trust the Senate, 44 percent undecided on the House of Representatives.

Meanwhile, one out of 10 (from 9 to 11 percent) distrusts the Senate, the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court.

    If I were VP Binay, I would take a second look at this survey. One would expect PNoy’s ratings to decrease given his stance of the RH bill, sin tax, AMLA, ARMM, FOI, and other host of issues. As he takes a particular stand (as required of his position), it is but natural to expect that such stand would not agree with somebody else’s stance. However, given the fact that VP Binay appears very quiet on where he stands on issues, he should be wondering how come his ratings went down as well. One explanation is probably some people are beginning to notice that VP Binay just wanted to fly under the radar and coast until 2016. Oh well… maybe other people are beginning to notice that VP Binay as sitting on the fence rather than lifting the level of discourse on today’s key issues.

    The nightmares of Enrile have started. What used to be a very high rating is now going downhill, no thanks to his Christmas gifts to fellow senators. Along with that, Jackie will be the collateral victim.

    During campaign, Enrile’s rating will continue to dive when his Christmas gifts, his atrocities during ML are played up in the air continuously. 

    Binay will also suffer considerable reduction because the billions he amassed as mayor of Makati will be highlighted also. 

    Well, Erap is known to be the only convicted plunderer and he, too will have a lot of explaining to do during the campaign.

    Let the fun begins.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

      And if I may add, Enrile’s trust rating will further get eroded since the cover up for the various murdered victims of Jackie Enrile will be unraveled. There is a pattern that everytime Jackie Enrile is involved in a shooting incident his bodyguards get the blame. Can you beat that? Only people with nothing between their ears will believe that. Juan Ponce Enrile is an anomaly himself!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

    In the previous regimes, after three years in office the sitting President is lucky to get at least 40% approval rating and yet President Aquino still enjoys an approval rating of 66%. Never mind about the approval rating of Vice President because it is always high since they do not do anything anyway. So the rating of Binay is irrelevant!

    The picture above says it all. Ang itim itim ni Binay, hindi na siya nahiya, nagtatanggal pa ng muta sa taas ng entablado. Sa itim niya, kitang-kita ang muta niya kahit malayo. Ang puti puti ng muta, ang itim itim ng bansot na aeta. Dapat sa gubat na lang sya, o maging barker ng PUJ o taga-igib ng tubig sa tondo. Tinabihan niya pa si Pnoy, nangamoy tulo si Pnoy.

    Binay,chupe. Alis dyan. Tangna mo negro.

  • superpilipinas

    I believe that one of the reasons for distrust in Aquino is ignoring the important and popularly demanded FOI while pushing for the divisive RH.

    For Binay, building his Political Dynasty while not having any genuine accomplishment. 

    For Belmonte, RH that pushed back FOI and bringing up Divorce bill again to prevent FOI

    That Noynoy’s approval rating would take a dip is not surprising. A mongoloid like Noynoy can fool the Filipino people once but not forever. It also doesn’t help that Noynoy and LP are complicit in the tradition of wasteful spending in the senate as evidenced by the cash gift controversy.

    That Binay’s approval rating would take a dip should not surprise Binay. He’s hanging out with the wrong company. Erap is a has been and Enrile is the devil himself. Erap and Enrile’s viral dance video did nothing to endear them to the public.

    Now here’s something for the survey companies to answer. Nancy Binay relies solely on Daddy’s name recall. She gained 2 points in the Jan 2013 survey while her father lost some points. Why would Binay lose so many points and yet her daughter who is completely reliant on her father’s name recall gain points? That’s just not logical.

    Pnoy’s approval rating dropped because people disapprove of his support for RH bill and his kabaklaan. What parent would approve of their son to look up to baklang Pnoy as role model?

    The January survey shows many Filipinos disapproved of enrile’s selective distribution of Christmas bonuses and the way billions of taxpayers’ money are being liquidated by mere certifications only.

    The succeeding surveys may be jolting to the king of cagayan, including his namesake son who’s running for the senate on the strength of his father’s popularity.

    Anybody here born in the early 70s or earlier?

    I remember a lady from a buena familia and alta sociedad who briefly served as the Vice-Mayor of Makati during Cory’s time. She was sexually harassed by Binay and she went public with her complaint. Unfortunately, Tita Cory was desperately in need of whatever allies she could have amidst constant coups. Binay was never charged and that nice lady resigned from her post. I hope someone could dig up more into the past of Binay.

    I guess most people do not know of Binay’s questionable wealth.  He is making the government his source of wealth and to ensure his grip in government, he is making his unqualified daughter run for office.  His greed is obvious.  A vice-president criticizing an anti-corrupt program of his president tells you what kind of person Binay is. He is corrupt and as phony as a three dollar bill.

    Binay – no stand on the RH Bill and of course, he tried to please the Marcoses and their loyalists and at the same time hold on to the rest of Filipinos with his brand of  “Solomonic” decision on the issue of burial of Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani. This man does care about the country, only of his political ambition. He has no principles but only thinks in terms of how the act will affect his chances in 2016. The people were also turned off by his siding with the corrupt governor of Cebu City. People are waking up to his selfish designs on the nation thus the dip in his popularity.

    All those  who would rather die than vote for Binay and who will fiercely campaign against him, vote this comment.

  • whyinthisworld

    in 2016, binay will be the president and vice president is nacy(if won this election). His son will decide later on to run for senator and the mayor of Makati will be his wife.  So we have binays, president, vice president, senator and mayor. The next move, the first presidential proclamation ever is to change Philippines to Binay Republic. opps of course enrile, estrada and all his cohorts, friends and relatives will sing “happy days are here again”. If this happen, where are we going.

      Senator Junjun Binay (Majority Floor Leader muna sa umpisa)
      Speaker of the House Abigail Binay
      Makati Mayor Elenita Binay

    Both Binay and Pnoy are nonperformers. But Binay’s ratings are slightly higher than Pnoy because he did the wiser thing; he chose to just keep quiet while Pnoy continues to rant and brag about his fantasy-based slogans and accomplishments. He continued to talk big that he couldn’t match it with his actions. He continued to promise this and that but he couldn’t fulfill any of them. Pnoy’s talking ultimately backfires at him. Less talk, less mistakes. More actions, more results. And that’s what we have not been getting from our President.

    DAPAT itigil na yang TNL na survey-survey na yan na kino-condition ang psche ng mamamayan. E ano kung si ganito at si ganun ay TNL na ganito at ganung porsiyento…ano na?  Puro pang-mi-miron at panggagatong lamang ang end product ng TNL na survey na yan.  Tigil na!

  • Sugbuanon86

    Dapat lang bumaba ang rating ni PNOY.

    This phony has just exposed himself as a bigtime racist.

    He has no problem calling the vice-president “black”.

    21st century na tayo, pero meron pa ring natitirang ‘bigots’.

    If this is how he treats the vice president, imagine how he treats his dark-colored slaves in his hacienda.

    I strongly advice all voters, kahit hindi maitim ang inyong balat:


    Huwag na po tayong magpaloko ulit.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/FLJI5IXDQUKCJIOYLEYTDUJFIE Lakay

      Bugok, ikaw ang madumi ang isip kasi wala sinabi si PNoy na ganyan. Sumama ka sa mga kampon ng demonyo: Erap convict, Enrile mass murderer, Binay Makati’s super-corrupt.

      At anong kulay ang gusto mong itawag sa vice-president, PUTI?? Eh, talaga namang maitim siya…gusto mo mag-MET sya eh.. tingnan natin ha ha ha ha….

      BLACK si VP:  In short, maitim ang balat… wala akong sinasabing MAITIM ang budhi ha?  At saka, di rin ‘blackie’ ang tawag ko sa kanya…

     Only filipino indiots believe in survey done by this private company Pulse Asia and SWS.
    What they care is money, and that is what you call pay per survey results which maligned the philippine citizenry. then if you believe in it, you are a real filipino indiots.
    It is much better if the questionaire used is audited first by realiable auditing firms before they make the survey. gawa gawa lang nila ang results at bigyan din ng kaunti ang reporter and there you goes the result of false survey goes wide thru this media people.
    And this is what I call a bad business worse than pyramiding scam.

Noong umupong Presidente nadyan na ang mga hospitals,roads and bridges nlex at slex dinatnan na nya yan pero matatapos ns term ni Aquino ay wala pang naipagagawang major project. haaaayyyy, ano ba.

      Hindi mo maramdaman yong pagsulong kasi utak talangka ka. Ang pag unlad ay hindi mo mararanasan kasi puro asa ka sa gobyerno. Magsumikap ka kaya.

      Akoy OFW though bumaba ang dollar exchange rate hindi ako umangal kasi natuto akong mag invest sa stock exchange, na kasalukuyan ay kumikita ng malaki. Ang pag unlad mo ay mararanasan mo kung tutulungan mo sarili mo.

  • JasonBieber

    Things are no longer about trying to accomplishment something real…it’s simply about staying popular for these surveys. It’s like high school student council elections where the student candidates makes the coolest promises and says the funniest things rather than focusing on something real, true, and tangible.

    If people can vote for actors and famous personalities and people with famous last names who have no business running the government then these same people will also do these surveys. In other words, approval rating don’t mean much coz it’s just about popularity and how well you can play the media rather than accomplishment something good and real.

  • basyong

    naman naman false asia.? of all people to rise in popularity senatong enrile? ginagawa naman ninyong mga t a nga ang mga pilipino? binaboy na nga ang survey iniinsulto pa ninyo ang kakayahan sa paghalal ng matinong tao para sa senado.

    • Observer_din

      isa ka ba sa gutom at walang trabaho?

  • Bisdak_kaayo

    Panay quote ang PNOY alipores ng SWS at PULSE ASIA dati nung mataas ng RATINGS niya.  Ngayon nagsasabi na ang mga alipores niya na dapat ipagbawal ang mga SURVEY.

    Did you say that when the SWS and PULSE ASIA give favorable results for PNOY in the past?

    Walang pinag kaiba ang PNOY alipores sa ibang politiko, they only quote and use the survey results only when it FAVORS them.

    • Observer_din

      ano ba problema sa survey? bagsak ba si pnoy? di ba mataas pa din? eh ang presidente ninyo ano ba mga naging ratings nya? cge nga sabihin mo sa amin, o baka naman ikaw ang lalabas na di naniniwala sa survey. hehehe

      • Bisdak_kaayo

        bakit ba kayo naniniwala sa SWS at PULSE ASIA, those are the same surveys which showed GMA won over FPJ.

        abir? and you say SWS and PULSE ASIA are OK when it give favorable results for PNOY.  I can show you a write up article gaano ka tuwa ang mga alipores ni PNOY when it showed PNOY ratings are up in these surveys.

        Patawa ka talaga.  Selective use of the survey ang ginawa ninyo, pag resulta pavor kay PNOY naniniwala kayo, pero pag resulta pabor kay GMA kalaban ni PNOY hinidi kayo naniniwala.

  • JasonBieber

    People who support PNoy are not supporting his achievements. People who support him are supporting him as fans which is why he is popular.

    They see him and feel nostalgic about his national hero parents. He’s had no real accomplishment in Congress, Senate, and now the Presidency.

    It’s like the Filipino actors now who have children entering showbiz…the children get automatic fans just because they are the children of famous actors and nothing more.

    PNoy and those kids of famous actors have done nothing yet people cheer them on. Although it’s nice that people cheer PNoy on…it is not helping the country improve and continue to improve in the long run.

    Things are fun now…but what happens when the economic wave that the previous Administration initiated fizzles out…

    • Observer_din

      hayyy, meron pa rin ditong kakampi ng magnanakaw na hindi nakuntento sa pera ng bayan pati credit sa pag-angat ng ekonomiya ng pilipinas gusto pa ding nakawin..  
      sana lang kumakain ka muna bago ka magpost dito… hehehe

      • JasonBieber

        You should be more informed before making your comments.

        PNoy has not done anything significant to warrant him taking credit for the economy.

        I suppose you would vote for Anne Curtis if she ran for Senator, wouldn’t you?

      • Observer_din

        what? Okay agreed si Gloria significant ang ang contribution niya sa Pilipinas, ramdam na ramdam yung maging ng mga ordinaryong mamamayan. Sa panahon niya lumaki ang budget deficit ng gobyerno, sa panahon nya nasira lahat ng institusyon ng bansa natin, pati mga pari at obispo binili nya. Iyan ang significant sa akin.
        I will rather vote for Anne Curtis if she will run against GLORIA, actually if they run opposite this election, the people will choose Anne than GLORIA.. ipupusta ko lahat ng balls ni TOPACIO .. DI MANANALO SI GLORIA MACAPAL A(DO)RROVO  KE ANNE CURTIS.

      • JasonBieber

        You know what…when you said you will vote for Anne Curtis over Gloria then i think it proves my point. I don’t even now how to describe that other than…that’s dumb or to put it more lightly, that’s not smart!

        That is exactly why the country’s improvement is stalled because of people like you.

        Just think about what you said..you let hate dictate your action and again that’s dumb or again not smart!

      • Observer_din

        I want a leader with a heart, not the greedy.. that’s point, and the country is stalled because of people like you who keep on criticizing what the administration has acheived where in fact we are much better now than the time of Gloria. The country is stalled because of people like you who thinks they are smart that’s why they elected a corrupt president..

        that’s my point.. if you are the smart one, then better that im dumb because i will not be voting a greedy president like what a smart people like you did.

      • JasonBieber

        You lost me at ‘(you’ll vote for Anne Curtis) for President.’

        Well at least you admit you’re dumb that you would rather vote for an actress with no experience as President.

        And fyi you are making baseless accusations against Gloria which is just as dumb.

      • Observer_din

        it’s you who gave a choice, to show you that you are smart in giving an uncomparable choice i gave you my answer because you are smart so you can easily know that i will never ever vote for GLORIA MACAPAL A(DO)RROVO..
        t’s everybody’s knowledge that GLORIA is the most corrupt preident that the philippines ever had.. she was , she will and she will ever be, the most corrupt, that simple.. :)
