(Inside Manila) The public can’t help but compare the performance of the present and previous administrations.

Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey revealed on Monday, January 8, the pulse of the Filipinos on the question: Kung ikukumpara ang pagganap ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa kanyang tungkulin mula Hulyo 2016 sa pagkaganap ni dating Pangulong Aquino mula Hulyo 2010 hanggang Hulyo 2016, masasabi n'yo ba na PRRD is better, the same, or is PNoy better?

About 70% of Filipinos believe that President Rodrigo Duterte performed better while only 8% believed that it was former President Benigno Aquino III who did better.  

The SWS survey also showed that 22% of Filipinos believe Duterte and Aquino performed the same.
