MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo’s popularity rating has sanked to “very poor” in a survey conducted by a new, emerging survey firm, Polls Asia.
The poll results show that Robredo’s net popularity rating is now at 13%, the lowest ever for any elected official in the Philippines. The survey was conducted in the last 24 hours. It came just after Robredo said that the deported Australian nun, Sister Patricia Fox, “was more Filipinos than many of us.”
(In comparison, Robredo’s net rating in the latest SWS Survey was +39% which was still considered “good.”)
Robredo’s statement insulted even her most ardent supporters and those who blindly voted for her during the last elections.
Political analysts said that it is doubtful if Robredo could ever recover from this unpopularity rating.
