In its report released on Friday, 38 percent of the 1,800 respondents surveyed, roughly estimated to be one in every four, from January 24 to 28 said the next President should address workers’ salary, while 36 percent said the next leader should focus on fighting the proliferation of illegal drugs.

Pulse Asia said the survey consists of the second cluster of urgent issues the respondents wanted to be addressed.

The other concerns are controlling inflation (30 percent), fighting corruption in government (30 percent), reducing poverty (29 percent) and creating more jobs (26 percent).

Meanwhile, 24 percent of respondents wanted their next President to fight all forms of crimes while 20 percent wanted the enforcement of the rule of law.

Nearly one in 10 Filipinos said the next administration should promote peace (12 percent), curb the spread of illegal gambling (11 percent) and protect the environment (10 percent).

Other issues that fell below the 10 percent mark are: defense of  national territorial integrity (eight percent) and preparations for disasters and calamities (eight percent), protection of welfare of overseas Filipino workers (seven percent), quick response to needs of those affected by calamities (six percent), and preparations to successfully deal with tourism (four percent).

Also, the survey report indicated that about 25 percent of the respondents said they were supporting their preferred presidential candidate because of their having “an untarnished reputation or a reputation for not being corrupt.”

In previous surveys, Vice President Jejomar Binay remained the top presidential contender while Sen. Grace Poe and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte tied for second place.

Administration standard-bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd shed some percentage points to further drop to the tail end of the list.

The survey has a ±2 percent error margin at the 95 percent confidence level.

    >> — AN UNTARNISHED REPUTATION may be hard to come by these days if the choices from previous surveys are any indication.

  2. Haaaay. Kaylangan na natin ng lider na may totoong MALASAKIT at PAGMAMAHAL sa mga mamamayan at mga manggagawa… Si Sen. Grace Poe yun, sigurado ako pag sya na ang prisidente, hindi nya ipagkakait sa atin ang dapat na sa atin. #GP2016

    sa dami dami ng kinakaharap n problema ng ating bansa isa lang ang sagot dito Duterte at Cayetano lang wala ng iba

  9. Kung si Grace Poe alam ko na hahayaan niya na tumaas ang sahod ng mga mangggawa, dahil siya mismo dati na isang manggagawa, naranasan niya na pagkasayahin lang ang kakarampot na pera para lang may maitustos sa pang araw araw na gastusin. Isa yun sa mga bagay na tatanggalin ni Grace Poe dahul lahat ng mangaggawa deserve na magkaroon ng maganda na sahod. Kaya ako naniniwala ako na si Grace Poe lang ang makakapag patupad niyan.

  10. Deserve naman nila yan kaso sana nilahat na lang ng ating Presidente dahil marami din tayong kababayan na nagpapakahirap sa trabaho ngunit hindi sapat ang kanilang sweldo at alalo na ang pensyon ng mga SSS pensioners. Sana naman next time umunlad na ang ating ekonomiya.
