MANILA, Philippines — About 82 percent of Rodrigo Duterte’s allies and supporters feel “safer” since he took office last July 2016, according to the latest survey conducted by Pulse Asia Research Inc.
President Rodrigo Duterte was sworn into office last year promising radical changes and reforms. In just seven months since he took office, his efforts has gained 82 percent approval rating from his allies.
The respondents were asked during the Pulse Asia Research survey to rate the statement: “Compared to last year, I feel that we are more safe, powerful and untouchable now in our place because Rodrigo Duterte is our president.”
The survey was conducted on March 01 – 06, 2017 with respondents who are either members of the President’s Cabinet, elected officials allied with the current administration, rabid Duterte supporters, rich people and wealthy drug lords from all around the country.
Solicitor General Jose Calida said he is inspired by the result of the Pulse Asia survey. He vowed to do more brazen acts going forward, saying that the Marcos burial and Napoles acquittal scenario were just the tip of the iceberg.
“You can’t really argue with numbers,” boasted Department of Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre. “82 percent is a huge number, kinda like 16 million representing the entire population of the Philippines.”
“We will take this accomplishment to further embolden us to exert our might in the majority,” said House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez. “Expect more absurd laws to be filed and more impeachment complaints to be filed against individuals trying to damage the image of our president.”
A wealthy drug lord who wishes not to be identified also thanked the public and encouraged them to continue blindly following and protecting the president and turn a blind eye at the increasing death toll resulting from the war on drugs.
“The more drug addicts, pushers & runners who are being killed the better,” he said. “That way, less attention is being given to us big fishes, who has the wealth and resources to squirm out of any tight situation.”
