FAQs ABOUT DUTERTE (Thread): Why is Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte so popular? #HRC41
Many reasons. He depicts self as an ordinary Filipino politician, one who is approachable, who understands how a common person supposedly thinks or acts. Folksy, uses offensive language.
(2) But Duterte's popularity grows out of a widespread disenchantment and disappointment among Filipinos toward their political leaders who are perceived as generally corrupt and a political culture that is seen as driven mainly by patronage politics that is dynastic and elitist.
(3) Philippine political culture has not changed since Marcos, who -- through corruption -- damaged it in ways that ensured the perpetuation of patronage and crony politics. Marcos destroyed our democratic institutions and govts after him never quite succeeded in fixing them.
