MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Jejomar Binay’s camp played down on Monday his drop in the latest  Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, saying that the 65 percent satisfaction rating he received showed that he still has the continued trust and full support of the  people.

While the survey showed that 65 percent of the Filipinos remained satisfied with the Vice President,  his net satisfaction rating  went down to 44 percent last December from 52 percent in September 2014.

“The result of the recent SWS survey clearly indicates that Vice President Jejomar C. Binay has still the continued trust and full support of the Filipino people despite the intensified campaign of lies and pattern of deceit waged by his political detractors in the Senate to discredit his accomplishments and track record as a proven public servant,” Binay’s spokesman for political affairs, lawyer Rico Paolo Quicho, said in a statement on Monday.

He said the Vice President was “grateful” that the people still judge him by his work despite being constantly maligned by his political foes.

Binay, Quicho said, was also optimistic that “the misinformation being peddled against him in a bid to damage his good standing will soon end with majority of the Filipino people realizing that surmises and conjectures cannot be the substitute for the truth.”

“The Vice President remains firm that the allegations being hurled against him are baseless and bereft with any merit, which would not stand in an impartial and fair judicial scrutiny,” said the spokesman.

Binay  also remains “focused and committed to fulfill his objective to promote the welfare of the poor and further address the growing needs of the Filipino people,”  Quicho added.

The Vice President has been accused  of receiving  kickbacks and other corruption  allegations while he was still the mayor of Makati City but he repeatedly denied  these.
