VP Leni's camp blames 'trolls and fake news' for low ratings


The camp of the Vice President is not taking the results of the latest Pulse Asia survey whole hook, line, and sinker.

The recent survey showed the President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s approval and trust scores both at 91 percent, while Vice President Leni Robredo received approval and trust ratings of 57 percent and 50 percent, in the Sept. 14-20 poll.

The Vice President received the second lowest ratings among the country’s top officials.

“Given the limited budget of the OVP, she has actually done a lot with the resources available to her. I think the problem is more with respect to people finding out, or getting informed, about what the Vice President is doing,” said Robredo spokesman Barry Gutierrez in an interview.

Gutierrez attributes the results to the millions of Filipinos who were able to receive financial assistance from their local governments.

“The VP does not have that particular luxury,” he said.

The spokesperson also noted that the great disparity with respect to the media mileage Malacanang is receiving and the constant attacks of trolls to the Vice President.

 Robredo is under “constant attack by trolls and other people who persist in spreading fake news online about her.”

“We’re really hitting a disinformation wall and we have to deal with that every day that we are striving to work for the Filipino public,” he said.

“Hopefully, Facebook itself, as an institution, is also attempting to take steps to address the proliferation of fake news on its platform. So hopefully, with these moves, slowly but steadily, we will be able to punch through the wall of disinformation that we have had to struggle against over the course of the last four years,” he said.

Nevertheless, VP's spokesman  said the approval rating “is not really a concern that the Vice President prioritizes.”

“She does not really spend any money at all to promote herself on social media. What is important for her is that she does the work, she is able to help actual people on the ground,” he said.
