MANILA, Philippines?Virtually all senators enjoyed near to big majority approval ratings, with opposition senators scoring better than their counterparts aligned with the administration, according to results of the latest survey conducted by Pulse Asia Inc.

?Filipinos are most appreciative of the work done by Senators Loren Legarda (79 percent), Francis Escudero (77 percent), Francis Pangilinan (76 percent) and Manuel Roxas II (72 percent),? Pulse Asia said Monday.

Sen. Benigno ?Noynoy? Aquino III got an approval rating of 69 percent, while Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, Senate blue ribbon committee chair, registered an approval rating of 68 percent.

Sen. Panfilo Lacson scored an approval rating of 67 percent, while Sen. Jamby Madrigal garnered 65 percent.

Biggest gainers

Madrigal and Cayetano were among the biggest gainers in terms of approval ratings between the October 2007 and March 2008 survey rounds, along with Pangilinan.

Madrigal gained 10 percentage points (from 55 percent in October to 65 percent in March), while Pangilinan gained 9 percentage points, from 67 percent to 76 percent. Cayetano gained 8 percentage points, from 60 percent to 68 percent.

Aquino and Lacson gained 4 percentage points each (from 65 percent to 69 percent, and 63 percent to 67 percent, respectively).

Senators with low ratings

The lowest approval ratings were recorded by Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri (41 percent), Joker Arroyo (45 percent) and Richard Gordon (49 percent).

The survey was conducted while the Senate was holding televised hearings on the scrapped $329-million National Broadband Network deal with China?s ZTE Corp.

The nationwide survey was conducted from Feb. 21 to March 8 using face-to-face interviews with a multistage probability sample of 1,200 adults. The survey had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points. Kate Pedroso, Inquirer Research
