Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 10) — President Rodrigo Duterte is the most approved and trusted among the last four leaders of the country, a private pollster reported.

The Pulse Asia on Friday released comparative performance and trust ratings of Duterte and his predecessors - Benigno Aquino III, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, and Joseph Estrada.

Duterte's 80 percent approval rating in the latest September 2017 nationwide poll is higher than any score achieved by former presidents.

Also, 80 percent expressed "big trust" for Duterte that month. Only Aquino reached the same trust rating in October 2010 and November 2012.

Duterte holds the record for the highest approval and trust ratings ever received by any of the four presidents - 86 percent in September 2016 and 91 percent in July 2016, respectively.

The results released by Pulse Asia varied in terms of the frequency of its surveys.

Surveys on Duterte began in July 2016 and were conducted every after three months. Polls on the rest of the former presidents, however, were held inconsistently.
