Survey of NCR Adults

3rd of a 4-part series

About seven out of 10 Filipinos in the National Capital Region (NCR or Metro Manila) believe that the country is headed in the wrong direction, according to a survey commissioned by The Manila Times conducted by Laylo Research Strategies (LRS) from February 6 to 9, 2015.

While upper classes (ABC) are divided on the direction the country is headed to, an overwhelming 72 percent to 73 percent of the lower classes (DE) believe it is headed toward the wrong direction.

A good majority (65 percent) in NCR, however, still prefer that the Chief Executive continue his role until his term ends. About 14 percent want him to resign or be impeached, with 22 percent of the upper classes saying an impeachment case should be filed against him.

Nearly half (47 percent) of those surveyed would want to listen to discussions before joining any protest actions regarding the January 25 massacre of police commandos in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.


Ten percent of respondents said they would support a coup against the Aquino administration because of its culpability for the Mamasapano massacre. With NCR’s adult population of about 6 million to 7 million, this roughly translates to about 600,000 to 700,000 supporters of a coup – a figure nearing critical mass for an EDSA uprising.

About half of respondents are confident that the Philippine National Police’s Board of Inquiry (52 percent) and a joint Senate and House investigation (51 percent) will find out what really happened in Mamasapano, Maguindanao, on January 25, 2015.

The Manila Times-LRS poll interviewed 300 adults in NCR about 12 to 15 days after the Mamasapano clash. The survey has a plus or minus 6 percent error margin.

  1. Paking, you may be right in that the majority dont know how to vote but unfortunately thats what democracy gives you. Just look at how many illegal filipinos are in america & are happy with what obama is doing for them, but that is a failing of democracy. The more democratic a country the sooner its downfall. By giving illegals amnesty it encourages more illegals to come there & the illegals & their families then vote for the party who lets them come there. Its then people voting what is best for them & not best for their country.

  2. We should open our eyes that the Philippine economy has risen to become the best in Asia, second only to China. The Masasapano incident has shaken the government stability because this unfortunate incident which was caused by failure in military strategy became the reason of the moneyed corrupt politicians to take advantage of the situation by inflaming the emotions of majority of the populace.The right thinking political analyst would suggest to let the President finish his term until our national election is held.Do we want Binay to replace Aquino before his term ends? Or, maybe have it replaced with a council, or a junta that is in the minds of Norberto Gonzales, Francisco Tatad, together with the retired Cardinal from Cebu? This is the situation that will make our country go to the wrong direction.I will become sick and maybe vomit to study the background of these people who are known opportunists, and for Binay, I don’t think he is the god-sent savior as his name “Jejomar” connote.

    We’re not headed in the wrong direction. If you just look at indicators such as economy, world perception, ease of doing business, etc, they all have gone up. Obviously, this survey is being done by people who are against the current dispensation and who want put the country in danger by trying to portray as if we’re doing bad. Indeed you guys are doing a disservice to the nation by creating black propaganda and are like traitors.

  4. Our voting populace is the one to be blamed because they allow themselves to be victims of election frauds. There are no delinquent politicians if there are no delinquent voters.

    REPLY: But, sir, they did vote, but not for Aquino and his allies. The problem is that in 2010 and 2013 the Venezuelan Smartmatic Corporation with their untransparent PCOS machines reigned over our elections. At the precinct level nobody sees how the counting is done, the ballots are are counted only inside the machines and the cards that contain the software controlling the PCOS machines can be tampered with by the Venezuelans’ hired technicians. The precinct count certificate is not signed by the precinct Board of Election Inspectors because they did not do the counting. Some results are not even transmitted by the machines to the canvassing centers. In the 2010 and 2013 elections millions of votes were not transmitted but no one knew abut it until later When the winners had been proclaimed.

    • I think you are missing my point. As you said, nobody sees the how the counting is done and some results are not transmitted. In your right mind, these are frauds and still doing anything? Our voting people allow it to happen. You knew all of these but have you ask yourself what shall we do?

    Come what may I will never ever leave the country of my birth in spite I have the means to do so.

    we are surely heading to a direction of self-destruction if we all pilipinos will continue to be coward and will not confront the big issue of political dynasty….What we gonna do about China?

    • Maybe we will just leave it that way until it’s already too late for pinoys to recover it or until we are all speaking Chinese stupidity. Another thing is I incline to believe our leaders sold us already to China that they will just close their eyes and ears for China to grab our beloved Philippines. This is land grabbing case before the eyes of everybody in national as well as international level. To pinoys, don’t buy China’s products of whatsoever. Thanks

  7. We do not need to wait for an incident like the Mamasapono Tragedy to conclude that the country is leading on the wrong direction. Filipinos know that this has been the case for the past decades which is the result of unfit politicians being allowed to run in an election and being voted by the majority who don’t know how to choose the right candidate. While this remain uncorrected, unfit politicians will continue to lead us to hell. After Marcos, the country fell into the hands of either incompetent or corrupt politicians and until today, this is the situation in the Philippines. Example, everybody knows that the congress and senate are the “home of thieves” but the national leadership is not doing anything about it and the people continue to elect these thieves again and again. Until the COMELEC apply the principle that only “the best, the brightest and the morally fit Filipino” could run in an election, the country will continue to be in the wrong direction and many more tragedies due to incompetent leadership are waiting to happen.

    • There is a man from the southern part of the country who have known integrity that can lead our country to the right direction. Davao became the cleanest, safest to live, and booming city. Duterte maybe the man to lead our country to the promised land.

  8. That is bound to happen if we keep on voting for corrupt, incompetent politicians and actors to public office.

    It’s high time Filipino’s stop “sitting on the fence” and be proactive in improving our country’s condition. Filipino’s should not be tolerant on corrupt and unqualified politicians. So on the next election, VOTE WISELY. Scrutinize your local officials carefully.

    1. Integrity. Integrity should be paramount. If in doubt most likely you don’t want to vote them
    2. Are they qualified? Do they have the brains to perform the job?
    Let’s face it you need some kind of a brain to do this sort of stuff. Review their credentials.

  10. Politics kill our country. Our govt.agencies were headed & run by friends & party members of the President instead of real professional managers. Our policy makers, law makers are also no help to improve our daily life. All they care are money to be transferred in their banks & vaults. Quo vadis Pinoy

  11. It is clear that we are headed in the wrong direction. During the next election run up, please take surveys on how the candidates rank in the important attributes. Things such as:
    Managerment skills.
    Leadership skills.
    Honesty and integrity.
    Law and Order.
    Vision for the future.

      O ya, we are a democratic nation, come election you will again see the government FOOL the people, BUY the people and (then) OFF the people.

  12. Lol…..It’s been decades the country is heading in the wrong direction, I left Pinas over 40 years ago & All I’ve seen is nothing but downward spiral year after year.
