SOS

It is public knowledge that in the past and definitely in the days to come as election year 2016 is fast approaching, many Surveys – one after another – have been done about different concerns and with different results. But as usual, there appears to be no one who has either out of his/her own admission or at the bidding of others, openly said whether he/she was among those in fact surveyed. Hence, either they were told to keep the Survey confidential, to keep answers to themselves or to simply keep their mouths shut – for whatever serious or flimsy reason.

And it is under such perceived circumstances that a quite simple, very open and honest-to-goodness Survey was made on the occasion of the “Anti-Pork”, etc., etc. rally held in Luneta in the rather early morning of Monday 28 August 2014. The Rally was peaceful. The people were rested. The questions were clear, clearly asked and clearly answered as well – by the raising of hands. The answers were then readily given and immediately recorded. By the way, the very conservative estimate number of the people then gathered together that said early morning was more or less 1,500.

So it came to pass that the two-part simple and short Survey was done. The questions were clearly asked one by one. The people promptly answered. Hands up means “Yes!”. Hands down meant “No!” Below are the two-part Survey made – with the answers to the questions counted one by one and duly written down.

Part 1: Survey on the Approval Rating of the President Aquino Concerns:
(1) KKK..................................................... 0
(2) PDAP.................................................... 0
(3) DAP...................................................... 0
(4) SECOND TERM IN OFFICE.......................  0

(h) 3........................................................... 15

By the way, the “SOS” Survey means “SAVE OUR STATE”.
