august 2009 pulse asia survey – president arroyo’s performance ratings continue to show high disapproval

president arroyo’s performance rating continue to suffer with a high 43% disapprove of arroyo’s performance as a president and a low approval rating at 23%. arroyo’s approval ratings is so low that the undecided are much higher than her approval rating.

also key is the fact that arroyo’s disapproval rating on her performance is across the board – all areas and all socio-eco groups.

what is more interesting is the chart below where we see arroyo’s approval rating actually declined from previous period to 23% from 26%.

The survey fieldwork was conducted from July 28 to August 10, 2009 using face-to-face interviews. Among the major developments immediately prior to and during the conduct of the interviews for this survey were the passing away of former President Corazon C. Aquino; the last State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her latest visit to the United States (US); the unexplained growth in the President’s wealth since assuming the presidency in 2001; the increasing number of probable presidential candidates for the May 2010 elections; the controversies surrounding the selection of two new members of the Supreme Court and this year’s National Artist awardees; and the loss of lives and destruction of infrastructure caused by two powerful typhoons. On the economic front, inflation in July fell to a twenty-two year low.
