Jack Enrile and Nancy Binay’s edge

By

TANAUAN, Leyte—The name of the game is name recall and public perception—so every little bit helps.

Senatorial candidates Nancy Binay and Jack Enrile hope the recent improvement in the approval ratings of their fathers will rub off on them.

The latest Pulse Asia survey results showed improvements in the approval ratings of Vice President Jejomar Binay, Nancy’s father, and Senate president Juan Ponce Enrile, the father of Jack.

The Vice President’s rating jumped six points to 76 percent, while that of the Senate president improved by seven points to 53 percent.  The two officials also enjoyed trust ratings of 75 and 51 percent, respectively.

Jack Enrile said the better approval ratings of his father could help his campaign. The younger Enrile was in the 11-16th place range in the latest Pulse Asia survey.

“We all know that the name of the game is name recall and public perception, so every little bit helps,” Enrile told reporters.

He also noted that the ratings of the candidates were too close together, with only a miniscule difference between them, which is why the rankings are fluid and could very well change when the next issue comes along.

Nancy Binay, interviewed in Baybay, said the improved trust ratings could also help her among voters, since she bears her father’s surname.

“I guess if he has high ratings it will rub off on me, on all of us,” she said. She was in the fourth to 11th place range in the latest Pulse Asia survey.

She added that she had once seen a survey showing that the Vice President has good endorsement powers.
