Survey: Voters think #Duterte is doing a great job in the #Philippines

Since taking office in June 2016, Duterte has waged a war on illegal drugs that has been condemned by the United Nations, the European Union and human rights advocates. While Duterte administration officials place total deaths at more than 3,400 as of July 26, Human Rights Watch estimated earlier this year that more than 7,000 people had been killed, including at least three mayors.

The survey also found that 78 percent of Filipinos believed that the current economic situation was good, while 57 said they were satisfied with the direction of the country. That was a 21 percentage-point increase from the last time Pew asked the question in 2014.

  1. condemned by the United Nations, the European Union and human rights advocates..

    Seem to be doing a great job in cleaning up the cesspool that was and is causing this island nation to deend into hell. It takes a special peron to finally say.. enough is enough. The Do-Gooders at the UN and other left wing crackpot grps don’t have to live with the massive drug problem and corruption. Well Done SIr !!
