MANILA, Philippines - The defense belittled the latest Social Weather Stations survey on Chief Justice Renato Corona's impeachment trial.
Defense lawyer Tranquil Salvador III said the survey does not reflect the sentiments of the entire country and it was taken even before they presented their case in the impeachment court.
The poll shows 73% of respondents prefer a conviction but 67% say they will accept any outcome of the trial.
Another defense lawyer, Rico Quicho, says these surveys help them assess the situation but the results should not be magnified or used for propaganda.
