Still high marks for Grace


Sen. Grace Poe virtually scored a “grand slam” after she again emerged on top of a list of senators whom the public believes have performed well.

According to a Pulse Asia survey conducted from May 30 to June 5, Poe received an approval rating of 93 percent while 0.4 percent expressed their disapproval.

Compared to the 2010 Pulse Asia survey, Poe’s rating is the highest for a senator.

A far second is Sen. Francis Escudero who got 83 percent, followed by Senators Miriam Defensor-Santiago (81 percent), Alan Peter Cayetano (76 percent), Ferdinand Marcos Jr. (70 percent), Vicente Sotto 3rd (68 percent), Loren Legarda (65 percent), Ralph Recto (64 percent), Sergio Osmena 3rd (61 percent), Antonio Trillanes 4th (55 percent), Juan Edgardo Angara (53 percent), Nancy Binay (52 percent), Aquilino Pimentel 3rd (49 percent), Franklin Drilon (49 percent), Teofisto Guingona 3rd (46 percent), Lito Lapid (42 percent) and JV Ejercito (41 percent).

Senators Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, who are detained in Camp Crame after they were charged in court over plunder and graft accusations, got the lowest approval ratings.

Revilla got 29 percent while Estrada got 34 percent.

Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, who is also in detention, was not included in the survey.
