pulse asia survey: aquino and villar big time on trust, teodoro suffers, same as estrada

perhaps to have manny villar and noynoy aquino’s trust ratings to be high and dominant is not surprising, they are after all the front runners in the 2010 election. we do not think one can be a front runner in the presidentiables poll if your trust ratings are low. there is no surprise in villar and aquino’s ratings.

what is surprising is when you look down at the other presidentiables.

erap estrada’s trust ratings are as low as gilbert teodoro’s and estrada’s trust ratings are as high as teodoro’s.

  • estrada trust rating at  33% vs teodoro’s distrust rating at 32%
  • estrada’s distrust rating at 37% vs teodoro’s distrust rating at 31% (there is significant difference here)

we are surprised by it as we did not think estrada and teodoro would be seen by the respondents as anything similar to each other. erap estrada may have a string of  nationally elected position like the presidency to his name but he is a convicted criminal, the crime of plunder whose liberty was made possible only through a presidential pardon by president arroyo. Teodoro may not have had a nationally elected position to his name and may not be as well known as estrada, he is very much a clean politician versus estrada. we thought they were black and white in character and credentials, getting the same kind of ratings on trust and distrust is very surprising.

now we wonder that perhaps teodoro’s low trust and high distrust rating that is practically the same as the convicted criminal estrada may be due to his close association with president arroyo. arroyo’s trust and distrust ratings are also disastrously embarrassing with a measly 11% trust and a huge 68% of distrust. we did not expect that arroyo’s kiss of death on teodoro will go this far.

comparing the frontrunner’s trust and distrust ratings to those of estrada and specially teodoro is another matter of strong interest for us.

aquino and villar’s trust ratings are double in size compared to teodoro’s and estrada while the front runner’s distrust ratings are almost only 1/3 of teodoro’s and estrada’s. this may indicate the front runners are way ahead in this election and the laggard’s group has a lot of catching up to do.

    The Pulse Asia Survey or “FALSE ASIA SURVEY” and the SWS Survey or “SOBRANG WALANG SILBI SURVEY” sino ang mas mapagkatiwalaan? lol

    Ako, none of the above rin.
    Pero nakita mo na ba yong galing sa Campaigns & Image Group Philippines? Maka totohanan daw!
    Villar is now ahead by 9 percentage points.
    Teodoro catching up with merely 5 percentage points behind Noynoy, 23 vs. 18.

    Oi, S’dooper!
    Sang-ayon ako sa remarks mo.

    Wala naman talagang organization at logistics si Noynoy. Di man lang nakapaglibot ng Mindanao. O di ba kaya Visayas. Me pangalan nga lang.

    Yaong trust-trust na ‘yanm kapag wala kang organization, hinding-hindi makapag-convert ng boto yan.

    Isa pa, kung tingnan mo si Noynoy, parang napasubo lang. Kung hindi lang dahil anak siya nga mga democracy icons na sina Cory at Ninoy, di maging kongresista at senador yan. Para bang hindi yata kursunada maging presidente. Pakinggan mo uli ang tono ng boses niya sa TV. Tingnan mo ang expression ng mukha.
