    So according to reports people are outraged about the war on drugs, the "plummet" in ratings is due to opposition to the war on drugs. Yet...

    Thanks. And as if to prove my point, Arroyo today switched parties to join Duterte's party, taking 80 (yes eighty) local elected officials from Pampanga with her. Wouldn't get that in a European democracy.

    Batangas switched a while ago.

    The important concept is "utang na loob", debt of gratitude. Arroyo was released under Duterte, so she is permanently in his debt. Duterte allowed Marcos to be buried in the national cemetary, they owe him utang na loob.

    Duterte's daughter hit out today at the opposition politicians most of whom went to Davao to get his support but now attack him. This is a break of utang na loob.

    As of now murders are down 8%, rapes about 20%, etc, he is saying if more people get killed and raped now the police stop all anti-drug operations then you know who to blame. If the drug dealers are armed, which they nearly all are, then the police/PDEA will not engage them so no killings. 85 police have been killed in these operations so no more police killed either. That is what the west wanted so let's see how it works.

    Following on from the posts about the survey showing a significant fall in apporoval.

    This is really weird. There are two survey companies in the Philippines, SWS and Pulse Asia. Both are longstanding and reputable survey firms, both with an ownership that is anti-Duterte so if there was political bias it would be very similar. Both polls carried out at the same time, same size. Normally the results are very similar. SWS shows a significant fall, Pulse Asia shows basically stable ratings. Way outside margin of error. (What's the betting SCMP don't report this one).

    So what is the truth? Media reports outrage against the war on drugs, the latest survey shows 88% support it with just 2% against. Answers please.
