On the drop of Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte’s approval ratings
The current double digit drop in Marcos and Duterte’s approval ratings may be attributed to the unresolved and ever-worsening economic crisis and the apparent corruption within the regime.
The lack of decisive action to address high prices and low wages, coupled with the national budget skewed in favor of non-transparent and unnecessary items such as confidential and travel funds, may have been major factors in the drop in approval ratings.
Indeed, as the economic crisis worsens, so will the people’s disappointment with the ruling clique. No amount of statistical window-dressing and flashy presentations can cover up economic decline and systemic corruption. ###
