Duterte starts term on a high note

President Rodrigo Duterte is trusted by majority of Filipinos as shown by the results of the latest Pulse Asia survey.

The results of the July 2 to 8 poll showed 91 percent of Filipinos trust the President indicating that practically no one distrusts Duterte as he only got a small or no trust rating of 0.02 percent. The pollster also noted that only eight percent of the respondents said that they were undecided if they would trust the President. The 91 percent rating is the highest trust grade achieved by any individual since Pulse Asia started its trust surveys in 1999. Duterte got the highest trust rating in Mindanao (97 percent), followed by the National Capital Region at 92 percent. Luzon and Visayas posted the same trust rating at 89 percent.
