UNITEAM senatorial candidate Atty. Larry Gadon on Monday has belittled Leni Robredo’s chances of winning the May 9 presidential elections following reports of her very low net satisfaction ratings that have plunged from 40% to 1%.
“Saan ka nakakita ng dating 40%, ngayon 1% na lang? Tapos sasabihin ng mga dilawan lumalakas si Robredo? Kalokohan iyan,” said Gadon.
Gadon’s basis is result of the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey conducted on December 12 to 16, 2021 with 1,400 respondents.
Gadon explained that no matter what Robredo’s campaign does, it was clear that the public does not trust and does not like her performance as the second highest official in the country.
“Mabigat ang pagsadsad ng satisfaction ratings ni Robredo. Kaya nga satisfaction kasi ang tanong ay kung ‘satisfied’ ba sila sa performance ni Leni. Ang sagot nila ay hindi,” he said.
“Bakit kamo? Kasi iyong dating 40% ay 1% na lang ngayon ang nagsasabing satisfied sa kanya. So paano ka pa ngayon makakukuha ng boto sa publiko, eh hindi nga nagustuhan ang pamamahala sa buong termino mo?” he continued.
Based on the SWS survey, Robredo also has the lowest performance ratings of all the highest government officials in the country. Senate President Tito Sotto clearly has a higher number than Leni with +51 net ratings.
Speaker Lord Allan Velasco has a +5 net rating and Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo has a +6 net rating.
What was glaring was that Robredo’s ratings dropped in almost all areas in the Philippines, particularly in Mindanao where she plunged to 23%.
In Metro Manila, Robredo has -16% (poor) from the previous +1 (neutral). In the Visayas the former +47 (good) is now only +27 (moderate) and the +20 (moderate) is now -27 (poor) throughout Mindanao.
Even in Balance Luzon, her number plunged from +24 in September 2021 to +10 in December.
Robredo’s urban net satisfaction which used to be +13 (moderate) is now -13 (poor), while ‘rural net satisfaction’ has also dropped because the former +34 (good) is +14 (moderate) in the current survey.
“Kaya ang ginagawa nila ngayon ay maghakot at magbayad ng tao sa rally. Mang-eengganyo ng mga estudyante kahit hindi pa mga botante, pang-come on ang mga artista at mga banda,” he said.
“Magpo-photo shop. Tatambakan ng lobo ang crowd para sa aerial shots ay magmukhang marami. Nandaya na noong 2016 vice-presidential elections, tapos ngayon mandaraya pa rin sa bilang ng kanilang mga rally,” Gadon added.
He said that if Robredo had really served the people faithfully in the past five years, the Filipino people would have felt and liked her.
“Pero wala! Ngayon naman ay nagha-house to house pa sila at babayaran ang mga taong maha-house to house nila. Pero kahit anong gawin nila, hindi na nila maloloko ang tao at malabo kailanman manalo sa eleksiyon ang may mababang satisfaction rating,” added Gadon.
Gadon stressed that Robredo’s low number is now too low to even make an impact, especially since the election is just almost a month away.
