Despite the President’s Defending Robredo, there’s no Stopping her Downfall


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The relations between the president and Leni Robredo are constantly changing. Du30 at first suspects that she was among those plotting his ouster from office. He now says that he believes Robredo is not involved in any plan to dismiss him from office and even appeal to critics to stop any impeachment moves against her. They are scheduled for dinner after the Holy Week.

More Filipinos ar Dissatisfied with Robredo

More Filipinos are dissatisfied with Robredo’s performance as shown in the nationwide poll results released recently. Private pollster Social Weather Stations or SWS said that her net satisfaction rating among public officials declined for a second consecutive quarter. It drops by 11 percent to a “moderate” +26 in the first three months of this year compared to a “good” +37 last  December 2016.

Critical of the Drug War

Her downfall is actually self-imposed. She videotaped her criticisms on the country’s war on drugs. Her pronouncements angered supporters of the president that contain unfounded details. Since Du30 remains popular despite the impeachment complaint filed against him, Robredo’s action displeased most people – the reason for the decline in her rating. The president’s net satisfaction rating as of March 2017 is at +63 or “very good.”

Impeachment Favored

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, who threatened to fast-track an impeachment complaint against Robredo right after the holidays despite the president’s disagreement, saw his net satisfaction rating increase by two percentage points to +12. This means that any legal action against the Vice President is duly approved by many Filipinos.

Recount Soon

One more big issue that proves the majority of Filipinos’ hatred towards Robredo is the recount call via Social Media. This will soon be protested at the Supreme Court on April 17, 2017  -that coincides with Bongbong Marcos’ deadline for the payment of the deposit recount to finally set the electoral protest in motion.

Satisfaction Rate of Robredo Drops because of UN Video not Propaganda


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Leni Robredo suffered a major drop in the recent Social Weather Stations or SWS survey. Her net satisfaction rating dropped by 11 points, from a “good” +37 to a “moderate” +26.

Aquino’s Defense on Robredo

Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV said “black propaganda” caused Leni Robredo’s satisfaction rating to decline. He said he expected it with all the black propaganda against her. He justifies it as a small percentage of the respondents. The majority still support her,” Aquino added.

Anti-Poverty Campaign

To rebound from the sudden drop, her office aims to continue pushing for her agenda of allegedly uplifting the lives of our marginalized countrymen. But this is difficult since she is often on overseas trips. Her message of hope and solidarity cannot be delivered effectively through words only. She must act on it.

Biggest Dip

Robredo’s net rating which is the percentage satisfied minus percentage dissatisfied took the biggest dip among the vital government’s officials. 53 percent of respondents are satisfied with Robredo, 27 percent are dissatisfied, and 19 percent are undecided. The survey was conducted between March 25 to 28 through face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults all over the country.

UN Video

Just a week before the survey, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez threatens to file an impeachment complaint against Robredo over her video to the side event of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, wherein she disclosed the alleged police abuses, with the wrong description of “palit-ulo” scheme or “exchange heads.” This triggers the “palit-VP” or “replace VP” rally at the Luneta Grandstand.

Barangay Pulso Survey: Binay is leading at 39% contradicting SWS

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Are surveys credible? SWS surveys are always in contrast with physical community surveys. Why is that?

“Sa pinakabagong Project Pulso, kitang-kita ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ni Vice President Jojo Binay bilang napiling pangulo ng mas nakararaming Pilipino sa mga barangay, probinsya, at siyudad.

Taliwas sa sinasaad sa mga survey ng malalaking kompanya na kino-komisyon ng media at pribadong indibidwal, malinaw sa sampling na ito ng 138,006 respondents mula sa iba’t-ibang lugar sa Pilipinas na si Binay ang nangunguna.

Mula sa 13 probinsya, 18 siyudad, at 37 barangay, 39% ng mga botante ay napili na si Jojo Binay para presidente.

Malayo ito sa 21% ni Rodrigo Duterte at 11% ni Grace Poe. Katunayan, sa mga lugar katulad ng Dagupan at Urdaneta Pangasinan, Balanga Bataan, San Pedro at Calamba Laguna, Dasmariñas at Bacoor Cavite, Tanauan at San Jose Batangas, halos doble ang numero ni Binay sa kanyang pinakamalapit na kalaban. Lamang rin siya sa Cainta Rizal, at San Fernando at Angeles City Pampanga.

Sa Kamaynilaan at Quezon City ay napakalaki ng lamang ni Binay: mas malaki pa ang kabuuang botong makukuha niya sa darating na eleksyon kumpara sa pinagsama-samang boto ng kanyang mga kalaban.

Mahalagang banggitin na tumaas ang numero ng mga undecided o ayaw magsabi kung sino ang kanilang iboboto. Ngayon ay nasa 23% na ito. Malaking porsyento ito na tiyak na makakaapekto sa kalalabasang resulta ng eleksyon.

Ang Project Pulso ay patunay na sa barangay at city levels ay ibang-iba ang resulta ng mga survey para sa pagkapangulo. Nangangahulugan lang na kung anupaman ang resulta ng mga malaking survey ng malalaking kompanya na siyang laging pinaguusapan sa media, hindi ito basehan ng kalalabasan ng eleksyon.***”

Bias or not, it depends on who’s doing it!
