Mike Arroyo’s trust rating

THE Social Weather Stations has released the record of First Gentleman Jose Miguel "Mike" Arroyo’s past trust ratings following the President’s announcement that he has volunteered to go abroad.

In 11 national SWS surveys from January 2001 to March 2005,  Mr. Arroyo had an average of only 22 percent saying they had much trust in him.

Since an average of 46 percent said they had little trust in him, Mr. Arroyo’s resulting average net trust rating was 24 in this period, according to the research organization.

The March 2005 survey finding of 16 percent  with much trust and 60 percent  with little trust in the First Gentleman, or net 44, was the lowest degree of trust recorded during the period. 

Mr. Arroyo’s net trust rating was positive only in January 2001.

Statistical analysis has consistently shown a direct correlation between public satisfaction with a president’s performance and public trust in the president’s spouse, SWS said.

SWS has regularly polled public trust in presidential spouses ever since the administration of President Fidel Ramos, and reported these to its subscribers. 

The SWS’s full report can be accessed at its website.

I’m not conversant with statistical data but with or without statistics, people you meet in the streets could easily figure-out that Mike is not that type of a person to whom you will buy your blankets.

Why do 46% of respondents in SWS survey not trust Mike Arroyo? Because people hear many things about him and it’s getting to be too much to ignore. Recall Erap’s “Embarassment of Houses”, which started out as mere talk. As the saying goes, where there’s smoke there’s fire.

Besides the allegations vs. the FG that have already been taken up by media, there are other questions that have still to be asked about his dealings. For instance, what was his and his son’s role in that onerous “midnight” deal between the SSS and the group of this mall magnate? Does it have anything to do with the fact that the magnate’s daughter was a major campaign contributor to GMA’s reelection bid? One senator has already gone on record as saying that P2 billion changed hands.

Then there’s the matter of GSIS and its president, Winston Garcia, who has been working hard to help SSS consummate the anomalous transaction. Is it mere coincidence the FG is romantically linked to this lady-broker who happens to be the primary stockbroker of GSIS?

Noong election, noong maglabas ng
resulta ng survey ang makinarya
ni Profs Mangahas at Miranda, na
nahalatang tila dinoktor. sana
hindi na identify na mga taga UP
ANG NAGSUR VEY. Maaring matulad
na ang UP sa mga damaged institutions
sinira ng singaw ng panahon. .

Ang kalawang ba na sumisira sa
bakal ay meron mas magandang survey
kaysa bakal?

Maari, kung hindi dinoktor dahil
ang kalawang sa simula
hindi kasing notorious ng bakal.
At saka ang kalawang sa gabi at
dilim namiminsala.

Who will end up as the loser in all of these?
Who will end up the winner?
Who will benefit from GMA’s resignation?
Who will benefit from Noli De Castro’s rise to power?
How long will he last?
Who will be his advisers?
Who has the moral authority in leading us from our current situation?
And finally… when can we finally get our acts together as a nation so we can move on?
