Seems like the electorate there is just as idiotic as in the US and loves their dictators and strongmen. Either that or their news and media is heavily influencing people's opinions like in the states. Electing Duterte and then Marcos right after! can't even imagine. Everyone must have forgotten how terrible the first Marcos was. It seems at least Jr wants to have a better relationship with the US so that's a positive, but I don't know much else..
