MANILA, Philippines—Amid the political mudslinging, Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Sen. Benigno Aquino III and his running-mate Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II continued to enjoy the highest trust ratings among candidates for the two top posts, a Pulse Asia survey showed.

The survey, conducted on March 21-28 among 3,000 respondents, showed Aquino receiving a trust rating of 69 percent, up five percentage points from the 64 percent he got in February from people who said they had “big trust” in him.

“Only nine percent said they had ‘small/no trust’ in Aquino, a significant drop of five percentage points from the 14 percent who said they didn’t trust him in February,” said a Liberal Party statement.

“Meanwhile, 74 percent said they had ‘big trust’ in Roxas, for a four-percentage point increase from 70 percent [in February],” the LP said.
Nacionalista Party (NP) standard-bearer Sen. Manuel Villar received a “big trust” rating of 61 percent, the survey showed.
Former President Joseph Estrada came in third with 48 percent, followed by former Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro (36 percent), Sen. Richard Gordon (29 percent), Eddie Villanueva (22 percent) Sen. Jamby Madrigal (21 percent), and Nicanor Perlas and JC de los Reyes (nine percent each).

In the vice presidential race, the NP’s Sen. Loren Legarda received a trust rating of 50 percent, Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay got 58 percent, Bayani Fernando (24 percent), Edu Manzano (23 percent), Jay Sonza (13 percent), Perfecto Yasay (11 percent) and Dominador Chipeco (nine percent).
