Lacierda: PNoy grateful on Pulse Asia Ratings

Pulse Asia
Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda:
On the Pulse Asia Ulat ng Bayan Survey results for the period of May 21 to June 4, 2011
[Released on June 22, 2011]
President Aquino’s performance and trust ratings remained at near-historical highs, as the recent Pulse Asia Ulat ng Bayan Survey recorded both numbers at 71 percentage points for the survey period of May 21 to June 4, 2011.
Given the margin of error of +/-3 percentage points, the President’s performance rating of 71 percentage points remains statistically unchanged from the previous rating of 74 percentage points recorded in March. An incremental decrease from a trust rating of 75 percentage points in March to 71 during the latest survey period was also reflected in the survey.
The latest Ulat ng Bayan numbers reflect wide-ranging support for the administration’s efforts to curb corruption, pursue inclusive growth, and provide basic services to the people. This, despite obvious attempts by the enemies of reform to stoke the fires of negativism. The President is grateful to the people for this vote of confidence, and remains committed to leading them on the straight and righteous path to equitable progress.
