BAGUIO CITY: Almost half of Filipinos are not satisfied with how President Benigno Aquino 3rd runs the country, according to the latest survey of IBON.
Rosario Bella Guzman, executive director of IBON, said 46.9 percent of those who responded to the April 2014 nationwide poll conducted by her group said that in the past three months, they did not find the President’s performance satisfactory.
The results were unchanged from the January 2014 poll, Guzman added.
In the survey held in April, at least 36 percent found Aquino’s performance satisfactory, a slight decrease from the results in January 2014 (37.5 percent) and in October 2013 (39.0 percent).
The April 2014 survey was held from April 24 to 30 among 1,500 respondents 18 years and above.
The survey used a multi-stage probability sampling scheme and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percent.
IBON earlier reported that most Filipinos saw no improvement in corruption and poverty in the country.
Filipinos were asked if they thought there was less corruption and three out of five or 64.9 percent of the respondents did not agree, the survey results claimed.
Only 23.9 percent of the respondents believed there was less corruption.
IBON also asked respondents if there was less poverty in the last three years and 14.8 of those surveyed said yes, while eight out of 10 or 77.4 percent disagreed.
Seven out of 10 Filipinos or 67.0 percent also said their families were poor..
