Quarter of Filipinos believe their country "hopeless"

Nearly a quarter of Filipinos believe their country is "hopeless," and one in three would rather move to another country if they had the chance, according to a survey released Thursday. Although a majority of respondents, 54 percent, remain hopeful about their country, 23 percent said they viewed the Philippines as a "hopeless case", up 12 percentage points from July, the independent pollster Pulse Asia said.

It said it interviewed 1,200 adults nationwide in October as the country grappled with allegations that President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo rigged last year's elections and fuel prices went up. Pulse Asia said the desire to migrate was significantly higher in October than in July, 33 percent compared to 26 percent.

From a majority of 52 percent in July, those adamant about staying in the Philippines declined to 37 percent, the pollster said. It said the desire to migrate was higher among better qualified people and the youth.

Only about 16 percent of respondents said their families will be more prosperous this Christmas season than last year, Pulse Asia said. Still, 70 percent said they will "face 2006 with hope." The survey had a margin of error of three percentage points, the pollsters said, reports the AP.
