MANILA, Philippines — No matter what the results of surveys say, Vice President Jejomar Binay believes he is still “number 1.”

“Number 1 pa rin ako (I’m still number one),” quipped Binay when asked whether the dip in approval ratings in his work shattered his confidence.

The latest Pulse Asia Survey indicated a drop in the approval ratings of both Binay and President Benigno Aquino III for mid-January.

“Hindi mo maaano yun sa confidence level ko kasi number one pa rin ako. Makikita yung tiwala at confidence ng ating mga kababayan sa akin (You can’t use that to diminish my confidence. You can see the trust and confidence in me by the people),” said the Vice President.

He noted it was not only him and the President who received lower approval scores in the latest Pulse Asia survey.

“Lahat naman bumagsak. Siguro election time na. Marami ng mga isyung lumalabas kung anu-ano ng nangyayari. [Ang] pagbagsak hindi naman pumunta sa unfavorable, napunta sa undecided,” he pointed out.

(All got lower scores. Perhaps it’s already election time. Issues crop up and events are happening. The dip did not go to the unfavourable; it went to the undecided.)

As always, Binay said poor survey results should prod public figures to work harder.

“Siguro kailangang magdagdag ng sipag uli para makuha natin yung tiwala ng ating mga kababayan (Maybe hard work is needed to regain public trust),” said Binay.

Acceptability, public opinion like ice cream

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, UNA co-founder, likened popularity, acceptability or public opinion to ice cream.

“Sometimes it’s solidified… in many instances that I’ve gone through where perhaps the appreciation of the people has gone down,” he said.

“But who knows, it might rise again in the morning,” he said to illustrate the unpredictability of public opinion.

Enrile got his share of the decline in approval and trust ratings in the same Pulse Asia survey, but he said he was unsure what factors contributed to the dip in his scores.

“I really don’t know. Maybe because I was the subject of a barrage,” he said.

Enrile and the Senate have drawn criticism for the distribution of “cash gifts” last Christmas to favored senators.

    TO  BINAY  AND ALL  EPAL  SENATORS,

    We should follow the example of a New York City nurse named Menchu Sanchez. When Hurricane Sandy plunged her hospital into darkness, she wasn’t thinking about how her own home was faring,” Obama said in his address before a joint session of Congress. “Her mind was on the 20 precious newborns in her care and the rescue plan she devised that kept them all safe.”    

    YAN  ANG NUMERO  UNO  GETS  NYO?

      You forgot, NOGNOG was one of TITA CORY’S most trusted political appointee as Makati OIC…..

      • pcosmachine

        AND THE NOGNOG BETRAYED TITA CORY’S
        AND THE CITIZENS OF MAKATI’S TRUST BY STEALING FROM THE CITY AND MAKING HIMSELF A BILLIONAIRE.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

        Betrayed? PNOY won’t believe you on that, otherwise he could have KICKED Nognog out of his cabinet a long time ago….

      • OZBOYS

        Yeah your right big break for him to became a billionaire. You were right he was trusted by the late President Corazon Aquino and he sure make a good life and fortune from this opportunity. And now Cory is very rich with his wife and children like Royalties of Makati.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

        Cory is very rich with his wife and children like Royalties of Makati? 
        I’m confused, so are you….hehe

  • mari suli

    Malignong itim huwag mong ihambing rating mo sa pangulo dahil ang VP ay laaging safe sa mga batikos dahil fence sitting lang siya.Hintayin mong lumabas lahat ng baho at tunay na pagkatao mo at ng bumalik aang mga paa mo sa lupa.Ganyan lang ang Makati dahil liit ng population niya compared sa income niya,ngunit lahat ng iyan ay hindi dahil sa iyo.

  • johnllander

    He is no 1:

    1.  No 1 in political dynasty!
    2.  No 1 in corruption in Makati City Hall!

  • filipinaskoh

    Ang tanong ko lang BINAY, ano bang nagawa mo sa pagiging VICE PRESIDENT mo?

    Ang ratings mo nakasakay lang kay PNOY- un nga lang si PNOY ang  sumasalag sa bawat problema ng bansa. 

    Ano bang MABIGAT NA SULIRANIN ang ikinaharap mo para masabi mong number 1 ka, well maliban sa pagiging number 1 corrupt mo.

  • etomacq

    Binay is better than Noynoy and Roxas combined. 

    Proven track record. 

    Roxas and Noynoy walang napatunayan. Puro pamumulitika lang ang alam nila.

    Yun lang nga, hindi ako pabor sa pagtakbo ng anak nya sa Senado.

    I will not vote for his daughter. Ayaw ko ng mag kakamaganak sa pulitika.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NRLFHB4ZOMCNGDUJ2ZINRV7DAQ Juan

      makati growth has nothing to do with him. it is the plan of his predecessor with the steady investment of the ayala well basically the whole ayala. alam mo ba na sa Ayala family pa rin ang buong ayala? makati government has no say anywhere in ayala.

      • etomacq

        Whatever..  it was under the leadership of Jejomar Binay ng nag boom ang Makati.

        Makati lamang ang may maayos at magandang benepisyo natatanggap ang kanilang mga constituents. Si Noynoy at Roxas walang magandang nagawa mismo sa balwarte nila.

    WHY is BINAY No.1 in the Ratings.?

    What has he done to merit such a Ranking?

    The Bad Out-weights the Good” in his case.

  • satamalang

    Ang dahilan ng pagiging mataas sa survey ni Binay ay ang sadyang pag-iwas niyang magbigay ng kanyang posisyon sa mga senstive issues before.

     

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NRLFHB4ZOMCNGDUJ2ZINRV7DAQ Juan

    pag pababa walang silbi ang survey pag pataas dami nila kwento.

  • brunogiordano

    “Number 1 pa rin ako (I’m still number one),” quipped Binay when asked whether the dip in approval ratings in his work shattered his confidence.”

    OBVIOUS na palakas loob lang iyan.

    Alam next surveys tuloy tuloy na ang bagsak ng rating niya.

  • Luthmar

    Nobody dares to contest that you are still No. 1, sir.  Number 1 mangurakot.

  • kapayapaan_1900

    To accept one’s greatness is purely arrogance.  It betrays a man’s bloated ego.  To affirm and say “I’m number 1 in approval rating” is a thinly veiled “atat na atat” na talagang mag PRESIDENTE.  But don’t worry!  People will come back to their senses.  Before 2016, you’ll be unmasked.

  • OZBOYS

    Binay mangarap ka at magising…kaya ka lang naging vice presidente dinala ka ni escudero kung hindi sa pansitan ka pupulutin isa pa hindi umunlad ang Makati dahil sa iyo at dati ng maunlad ang Makati panahon pa ng mga Yabut ikaw ang pinaunlad ng Makati. Mahiya ka sa sinasabi mo na number one ka. OO number one kang corrupt at power hungry.
