President Rodrigo Duterte has hit record high approval and trust ratings amid Southeast Asia’s worst coronavirus outbreak. Duterte’s approval rating rose to 91% from 87% while his trust rating also increased to 91% from 83% in December, according to a new poll. Duterte remains popular among Filipinos due to his man-of-the-people style as well as perceived strong leadership and success in fighting crime and corruption. His opponents often criticize him for his ‘strongman’ style of governance. The Philippines has the most COVID-19 infections in Southeast Asia, with over 326,000 cases as of Tuesday.
Q1. Do you think Duterte's high approval and trust ratings reflect the government’s pandemic response?
