Asked how worried they were that Duterte has health problems, the survey found that 55 percent answered in the affirmative, 44 percent said they were not worried.
In the same survey, 61 percent of the Filipinos said, "Pres. Duterte’s state of health is a public matter that is why the public should be informed of everything about this," while 33 percent said otherwise.
The latest survey was conducted from September 15-23, using face-to-face interviews with sampling error margins of ±3 percent for national percentages, ±4 percent for Balance Luzon, and ±6 percent each for Metro Manila, Visayas, and Mindanao.
