Rody net satisfaction rating down 11 pts

PRESIDENT Duterte’s net public satisfaction score plunged by 11 points, his lowest since becoming president in 2016, the second quarter Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed.

The SWS survey, which was conducted from June 27 to 30 and involved 1,200 adult respondents nationwide, had margin of error of ±3 percent. 

The survey showed 65 percent of respondents were satisfied with the performance of the President in the last three months, while 20 percent were dissatisfied, resulting in a net satisfaction score of a “good” +45 (percent of satisfaction rating minus percent of dissatisfaction rating).

SWS classifies the net satisfactions scores of 70 or above as excellent, 50 to 69 as very good, 30 to 49 as good, 10 to 29 as moderate, 9 to -9 as neutral, -10 to -29 as poor, -30 to -49 as bad, -50 to -69 as very bad and -70 or below as execrable.

Duterte’s latest net satisfaction rating is 11 points down from the “very good” +56 (70 percent satisfied, 14 percent dissatisfied) that he got in March 2018.

This is his lowest net satisfaction score since September 2017 when he got a “good” +48.  His highest net satisfaction rating was a “very good” +66 in June 2017.

The President, in a chance interview at the sidelines of the National Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Summit 2018 in Pampanga, said he does not care and neither was he interested with the results.

“Bumaba? (It went down?)I do not care. Make it 15. Wala na ako dyan. (I do not care) It does not interest me at all. Basta ako coast- along na lang ako(I will just coast-along),” he said adding his latest rating might even be a factor in deciding who would succeed him or who would assume the transition president role “since I’m not popular anymore.”

Duterte’s 11-point plunge was due to decreases in satisfaction ratings across the different geographical areas, wherein he saw his satisfaction score dropping the most in Metro Manila by 20 points or from a +54 (72 percent satisfied, 18 percent dissatisfied) in March to +34 percent (59 percent satisfied, 25 percent dissatisfied) in June.

He also saw his net satisfaction score down by 18 points in the Visayas at +47 (67 percent satisfied, 20 percent dissatisfied) from +65 percent; and by 6 points each in Luzon at + 33 (57 percent satisfied, 24 percent dissatisfied) from +39 (58 percent satisfied, 19 percent dissatisfied), and in Mindanao at +76 from + 82 (84 percent satisfied, 8 percent dissatisfied).

The President’s net satisfaction rating also went down by 18 points among urban areas or +38 (61 percent satisfied, 23 percent dissatisfied) in June from +56 (69 percent satisfied, 17 percent dissatisfied) in March, and by 4 points in rural areas or a +38 +56 (69 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied) from a +52.

Among the different social classes, Duterte saw his net satisfaction score declining among class D at +43 (63 percent satisfied, 21 percent dissatisfied) from +57 (70 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied) and class E at +52 (69 percent satisfied, 17 percent dissatisfied) from +48 (65 percent satisfied, 17 percent dissatisfied). 

On the other hand, the President’s net satisfaction rating improved to a +66 (79 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied) from a +63 (72 percent satisfied, 9 percent dissatisfied).

The President’s net ratings among men and women also decreased to +46 (from +58) and +45 (from +54), respectively.
