MANILA, July 12 —- President Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Aquino III has 88 per cent or “much trust” of adult Filipinos, an all-time high for any President of the Republic, according to a pre-inauguration survey conducted by pollster Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The survey was conducted from June 25 to 28, using face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults nationwide.

With this figure, P-Noy, as he wants himself addressed in the press, even surpassed the highest trust rating–at 42 per cent–that former President and democracy icon Corazon Aquino, his late mother, received during her time.

The survey also found that 53 per cent believe that P-Noy can fulfill a few of his promises made during the campaign.

P-Noy’s trust rating is highest in the Visayas at +87 per cent, followed by Balance Luzon at +84, Metro Manila at +84, and Mindanao at +79.

Among so-called social classes, his rating is highest in the upper-middle class ABC at +88 per cent, followed by class D or the so-called masa ( hoi polloi) at +83,and class E at +82.

The SWS survey questions about public trust in Aquino and Vice-President Jejomar Binay, and the expected fulfillment of Aquino’s campaign promises, are non-commissioned, SWS said.

As for Binay, the survey also found very good net trust ratings in all areas and classes. His net trust rating is highest in Balance Luzon at +73, while rating highest at +77 per in class E. (PNA)
