    PUBLIC satisfaction on the performance of Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo, Senate President Vicente Sotto III, and Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano improved in the last quarter of 2019, the December 13 to 16 survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed.

    The survey, which involved 1,200 adults nationwide and had a margin of error of ±3 percent, also showed improved net satisfaction rating on the performances of the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, and the Cabinet.

    SWS said 59 percent of respondents were satisfied with Robredo’s performance in the fourth quarter of 2019 (up from 56 percent in the third quarter), while 23 percent were dissatisfied (unchanged from September).

    This resulted in a net satisfaction rating (percent of satisfaction minus percent of dissatisfaction) of a “good” +36 (up from +33 in September).

    SWS classifies net satisfaction ratings of +70 and 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,” -70 and below as “execrable.”

    It also considers the movement from one classification to another as either an “upgrade” or “downgrade.”

    SWS attributes the Vice President’s improved rating to an increase in satisfaction points in Metro Manila by 10 points (+25 from +15), in Mindanao by 6 points (+38 from +32), and the Visayas by 2 points (+48 from +46), combined with a slight drop of 1 point in Luzon (+33 from +32).

    Robredo also saw her net satisfaction score improving among members of socio-economic class ABC by 15 points (+21 from +6) and Class D by 4 points (+35 from+31), combined with a five-point drop among Class E members (+46 from +51).

    SOTTO, CAYETANO, PERALTA

    On the Senate President, the survey showed Sotto’s satisfaction rating slightly improving to 73 percent (from 72 percent in September) in December while his dissatisfaction rating improved to 10 percent (from 11 percent). This yielded a net satisfaction score of a “very good” +62 (up from +61).

    The movement in Sotto’s overall net satisfaction rating was due to increases in Metro Manila (+78 from +68), Visayas (+67 from +61), and Mindanao (+53 from +51) combined with the drop in Luzon (+60 from +64), and the improvement in net satisfaction score among the socio-economic class D (+65 from +61) combined with the drop among Class ABC (+49 from +68) and Class E (+55 from +60).

    On Cayetano, the survey showed his net satisfaction rating improving to 67 percent from 63 percent while his dissatisfaction rating slightly worsened to 15 percent from 14 percent, which resulted in a net satisfaction rating of a “very good” +53 up from +49.

    The improvement was due to Cayetano’s increased net satisfaction score in Metro Manila (+54 from +48), Mindanao (+65 from +52), and the Visayas (+67 from +57), combined with the decreased satisfaction rating in Luzon (+40 from +45).

    Cayetano also saw his net satisfaction score among members of the socio-economic class D improving to a +54 (from +49) and decreasing among Class E with +49 (down from +52).

    It remained unchanged among Class ABC with +49.

    The polling firm found Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta’s first net satisfaction rating at a “moderate” +21 — satisfaction rating 40 percent and dissatisfaction rating of 19 percent.

    Peralta had the highest satisfaction rating among respondents from Metro Manila (+27), followed by Mindanao (+26), the Visayas (+18), and Luzon (+17).

    Respondents belonging to socio-economic class D were also the most satisfied with Peralta (+24) followed by those from Class E (+17) and Class ABC (-2).

    SENATE, HOUSE,
    SUPREME COURT

    SWS also found that more people are satisfied with the performance of the Senate in the last three months of 2019 with a satisfaction rating of 73 percent (up from 69 percent) and a dissatisfaction rating of 11 percent (down from 13 percent). This resulted in a net satisfaction score of a “very good” +62 (up from +56).

    The improvement is due to increased net satisfaction scores across geographical locations, with the highest among those from the Visayas (+71 from +57), followed by those in Metro Manila (+63 from (+58), Mindanao (+62 from +56), and Luzon (+59 from +55).

    The Senate also received improved net satisfaction rating among members of the socio-economic Class E (+66 from +59) and Class D (+63 from +55), combined with a lower net satisfaction score among Class ABC (+48 from +51).

    The House of Representatives enjoyed an improved net satisfaction score of a “very good” +51 in December from +43 in September following a higher satisfaction rating of 63 percent (from 57 percent) and lower dissatisfaction rating of 12 percent (from 14 percent).

    The improved net score stemmed from increases in net scores in Luzon (+47 from +39), the Visayas (+56 from +48), and Mindanao (+60 from +45), combined with stable rating in Metro Manila (44).

    The House also saw improved net satisfaction rating among members of socio-economic class D (+52 from +42) and E (+54 from +46) despite a drop among those from socio-economic Class ABC (+32 from +48).

    The Supreme Court saw its net satisfaction score improved to a “good” +49 (from +41) due to the increases in satisfaction rating (62 percent from 57 percent) and improved dissatisfaction rating (13 percent down from 16 percent).

    The High Court scored its highest net satisfaction rating in the Visayas (+56 from +48) followed by Mindanao (+54 from +41), Metro Manila (+47 from +36) and Luzon (+45 from +39).

    Satisfaction with the Supreme Court was also highest among socio-economic class D (+53 from +41) followed by E (+45 from +44) and ABC (+25 from +34).

    SWS found the Duterte Cabinet scoring a “good” +45 net satisfaction rating (up from +35) which stemmed from a 56 percent satisfaction rating (up from 51 percent) and an 11 percent dissatisfaction rating (down from 16 percent).

    The Cabinet scored its highest net satisfaction rating in the Mindanao (+51 from +33) and the Visayas (+51 from+40) followed by Luzon (+40 from +33) and Metro Manila (+40 from +41).

    Satisfaction with the cabinet was also highest among socio-economic class D (+46 from +35) followed by E (+43 from +38) and ABC (+36 from +31).
