Could President Rodrigo Duterte be the best President the Philippines ever had? Majority of Politiko fans think so.Less than a week into Duterte’s six-year term,
more than half of the site’s fans already see him as the greatest among the 16 Presidents of the country.
Results of Politiko’s online poll showed 55 percent of netizens have high hopes about Duterte’s presidency, while a little over 3 in 10 fans, or 32 percent see him as “the biggest letdown ever.”
The remaining 13 percent of Politiko fans think he’s just an average leader who would be no different than his lesser-known predecessors.
Duterte formally assumed office on June 30.
Politiko’s poll was conducted from January 28 to July 5 with 1,513 netizens as respondents.
Duterte ran and won on a campaign of eradicating the country’s problems on criminality and illegal drugs. In his inaugural speech, he urged all Filipinos to join him in the quest for change even if the road ahead will be difficult and rough.
