Bagsak ng 8 points sa Visayas! Robredo: Rise and fall of trust ratings tied to Duterte

Vice President Leni Robredo on May 7 said the rise and fall of her trust ratings seem to be tied to the fluctuation of President Rodrigo Duterte’s own trust ratings.

The latest Social Weather Stations survey showed Robredo’s trust ratings fell by 13 points but remained “good” in the first quarter of 2018.

In Visayas, Robredo’s trust rating decline by eight points.

“Parating halos sabay kami ni Presidente — kapag tumataas siya, tumataas ako; kapag bumababa siya, bumababa ako. Ito, tingin ko, until the end of our term, ganito naman,” she said.

Robredo said part of the reason of the decline of her trust ratings is that many people do not understand the mandate of the Office of the Vice President.

“Kapag nakaupo na, mas marami nang expectations iyong tao. Noong ino-offer mo pa lang iyong services mo, maraming umaasa ng pagbabago, pero noong nakaupo na kami, hahanapan na kami,” she said.

“Sa pagka-Pangalawang Pangulo, marami din iyong hindi nakakaintindi kung ano iyong opisina namin. Hindi rin naiintindihan na wala kaming mandato to implement programs, wala kaming budget to implement programs. So kapag hinanapan ako ng ‘Ano ba iyong ginagawa mo dito?’ at hindi niya alam kung iyong nature ng aming opisina, parati na siyang madi-disappoint,” Robredo explained.
