MANILA - A political analyst thinks President Rodrigo Duterte enjoys high satisfaction ratings because he knows how to connect to the people, especially his supporters.

University of the Philippines political science professor Jean Franco believes Filipinos still trust president Duterte because they hope he can solve the problems hounding the country.

The latest SWS survey showed that Duterte's net satisfaction ratings went back to "very good" in the third quarter of 2018 despite issues like inflation and his controversial statements. 

"I'm actually not surprised because President Duterte has very good communication skills to his political base, and he speaks and talks like a regular guy that makes him able to connect to his supporters," he said.--ANC Dateline, September 30, 2017, Sunday
