About 15 percent of the respondents said that they had little or no trust for Robredo while 27 percent said they were undecided.

Senate President Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III scored a national trust score of 50 percent while Supreme Court Chief Justice Mara Lourdes Sereno obtained 41 percent.

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez scored the lowest among top government officials with 38 percent.

The survey was conducted from December 6 to 11 using face-to-face interviews among 1,200 adults nationwide. The poll has a ± 3 margin of error at the 95 percent confidence level.

Developments such as the decision of the Supreme Court to allow the burial of ousted dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Senate investigation into the killing of Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa and the Senate panel's recommendation to file charges against self-confessed hitman Edgar Matobato preoccupied Filipinos during the conduct of the interviews of the survey.
