QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo was very surprised that she did very poorly in the latest Pulse Asia survey which asked Filipinos to rate national officials in terms of trust and performance.
While her nemesis, President Rodrigo Duterte scored a very high 91% on both trust and performance, Robredo scored a measly 50% on trust and 57% on performance.
Robredo said she expected to rate much much higher after she went on a rampage in the last several months, issuing public statements criticizing everything about the Duterte government and using Facebook Live to promote what she described as her recommendations to improve the government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Apparently, we didn’t do enough,” Robredo said.
But she is determined to significantly improve her ratings, given that the 2022 presidential elections is just two years away.
The Adobo Chronicles asked her staff at the Office of the Vice President on what Robredo intends to do going forward.
OVP Spokesperson Barry Gutierrez said that in addition to her weekly radio show, and issuing press statements on a daily basis, Robredo intends to go on Facebook Live twice a day as a way keep herself and the OVP on the radar of all Filipinos.
Will the saturation work for Robredo?
