MANILA, Philippines — President Marcos and Vice President Sara Duterte received high approval and trust ratings, according to a nationwide survey conducted by the RP-Mission and Development Foundation Inc. (RPMD).

According to the “Boses ng Bayan” survey conducted from Nov. 27 to Dec. 2, Marcos got approval and trust ratings of 83 percent and 87 percent, respectively.

Meanwhile, Duterte, who is also the secretary of the Department of Education (DepEd), received an 81-percent approval rating and an 87-percent trust rating.

The results are an average of the two officials’ high ratings throughout the country’s regions and across socioeconomic classes, the foundation said.

Marcos received the highest satisfaction ratings in Mindanao with 87 percent and his lowest was in Metro Manila at 73 percent.

The RPMD survey did not provide more details about Marcos’ poll ratings in Luzon or in his political bailiwick, the Ilocos region.

Meanwhile, Duterte got the highest satisfaction rating of 98 percent in Mindanao, her regional political stronghold, while her lowest satisfaction rating was in Luzon at 70 percent.

In the same poll, the top five Cabinet secretaries with the highest ratings were Interior Secretary Benhur Abalos with 78 percent approval and 83 percent trust ratings; Information and Communications Technology Secretary Ivan John Uy with 74 percent approval and 89 percent trust ratings; Budget Secretary Amenah Pangandaman with 73 percent approval and 67 percent trust ratings; Migrant Workers Secretary Susan Ople with 71 percent approval and 68 percent trust ratings, and Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia-Frasco with 70 percent approval and 65 percent trust ratings

The nationwide survey has a margin of error of plus or minus one percent, and claims to be non-commissioned using face-to-face interviews with 5,000 adult respondents, according to RPMD’s official statement.

It disclosed limited details on the results of its survey unlike the Pulse Asia and Social Weather Stations polls, which have a track record for credible statistical data.
