METRO MANILANS GIVE PNOY ZERO SATISFACTION RATING: Did you see the latest survey results released by the Social Weather Station (SWS) on President Aquino’s satisfaction rating culled from a nationwide poll conducted between March 30 to April 02, 2016? The results are simply phenomenal because they showed that Aquino got “zero” satisfaction rating in Metro Manila, from a high of +32 for the same period last year.

Now, what does this mean? The “zero” satisfaction rating of Aquino in the National Capital Region reflects total rejection by Metro Manilans of anything that Aquino has said, has done, or is supporting, particularly in the presidential and vice-presidential elections on May 09 (please see http://www.bomboradyo.com/news/top-stories/item/147166-p-noy-satisfaction-rating-bumagsak-zero-sa-ncr).

As far as I can recall, this “zero” satisfaction rating given by citizens of the National Capital Region to Aquino is the worst rating ever given to any president of the Philippines. No other Philippine president has ever received such a “zero” rating in Metro Manila, including former President Arroyo who was even hounded by very serious graft and corruption accusations by her detractors.

REASONS WHY PNOY GOT ZERO SATISFACTION RATING: Why did Metro Manilans give a “zero” satisfaction rating to Aquino? The answer is not difficult to decipher, actually. First of all, almost all of them already know that Aquino is truly a non-performing president, who cannot boast of any accomplishment during his six-year presidency. What is worse is that, calamities and tragedies relentlessly struck our country during the whole time that Aquino was our leader.

Second, crime and criminality soared to their highest levels from 2010 to 2016. In 2010, there were 324,083 crime incidents that were reported in the country. In 2013, this figured nearly quadrupuled to more than a million crime incidents reported to the police, even if tampering of blotters to hide crime reports was unearthed in 2012.

Then, pork barrel spending, as authorized by the Aquino government, reached an all-time high of P20 billion a year since 2011, whereas pork barrel under the Arroyo government was only at P9 billion a year. Many believe that the big chunk of this P20 billion pork actually went to lawmakers who followed Aquino’s orders to oust then Chief Justice Renato Corona.

SOON, PNOY WILL ALSO ZERO RATING FROM WHOLE RP: But that was not all. Rampant smuggling flourished during all of Aquino’s term and according to the records of the International Monetary Fund, the value of smuggled goods in 2014 reached US$26.6 billion, or roughly P1.5 trillion, from only US$ 7.9 billion under Arroyo’s term.

Smuggling killed all locally-grown or locally produced goods and crops, thereby making life more difficult for the farmers and the fisherfolk among us. Jueteng and other illegal numbers game which fleeced Filipinos of their hard-earned incomes proliferated, largely because the fight against these illegal games was given to a buddy of Aquino and taken away from a known jueteng fighter, the late Jesse Robredo.

There’s more, of course. But the point in all these is that, Metro Manilans are now very much aware of the true state of the nation under Aquino, what with their constant exposure now to social networking sites that freely publish accurate information of what is happening. I am sure it is not going to be long before Aquino gets a similar “zero” satisfaction rating from the whole country, not just from Metro Manila.
