President's approval rating "historic" and "unprecedented."

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has done it time and time again.

The recent Pulse Asia Inc. survey that gave 87% approval rating for Duterte has been attributed to his stance against “oligarchs”.

"The people see how President Duterte has been reining in the oligarchs and the monopolies, not just in water services but also in telecoms and transport. This is reflected in the high ratings the president got from Luzon and from the ABCD income segments," Rep. Bernadette Herrera-Dy (Bagong Henerasyon party-list) said.

"These trust ratings quantify the massive political capital President Duterte has and which he is willing to use against the oligarchs who have controlled Filipino lives for far too long," she also said.

As for Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin,Jr. the recent survey is a direct manifestation of people’s support.

"Just because the winning candidate keeps winning and gets more popular despite the vocal distress of the unpopular losers doesn't mean he's become an autocrat. It means he's become all the more the right popular choice so far as the populace is concerned. Sino pa?" he said.

Ratings are “historic” and “unprecedented”

Presidential Spokesman and concurrent Presidential Legal adviser said the recent Pulse Asia survey regarding the President’s approval rating is historic and unprecedented.

 "The figures of the survey graphically show how the Filipino people are united in cementing their support to PRRD, and in agreement with the government programs geared toward uplifting the social and economic condition of the masses of our people." Panelo said.
