Team Duterte or Team De Lima?
In the ongoing word war between President Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Leila de Lima, whose side do netizens want to join? For Politiko fans, being part of Team Duterte is the best choice.
The site’s online poll showed that a clear majority of Politiko fans— at 82 percent— back Duterte in his feud with De Lima. Only 18 percent, or not even two in 10 netizens, support the senator.
Politiko’s poll was conducted from August 17 to 23 with 3,861 netizens as respondents.
Duterte made the headlines last week when he accused accused a senator of involvement in the illegal drug trade, with the money she allegedly received going to the construction of her lover-cum-driver’s house. He later identified the lawmaker as De Lima.
De Lima has cried foul over Duterte’s allegations, and accused him of abusing his power by attacking her. Instead of backing down, the President said he has evidence and witnesses to prove her links to the illegal drug trade.
