Duterte govt’s satisfaction rating slips to ‘very good’

Filipinos’ satisfaction with the performance of President Duterte’s administration in the past three months went down from “excellent” to “very good,” the third quarter of 2019 Social Weather Stations survey said.

In the nationwide survey conducted from Sept. 27 to 30 among 1,800 adult respondents, 77 percent were satisfied, 11 percent were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, and 10 percent were dissatisfied with the general performance of the current national administration.

These translate to a net satisfaction rating of +67 (percentage of those satisfied minus percentage of those dissatisfied), classified by SWS as very good.

The latest rating is six points below the record-high excellent +73 (82 percent satisfied, nine percent dissatisfied) in June 2019, and similar to the very good +66 rating in December 2018.

SWS terminology for net satisfaction ratings are +70 and above, excellent; +50 to +69, very good; +30 to +49, “good”; +10 to +29, “moderate”; +9 to -9 “neutral”; -10 to -29, “poor”; -30 to -49, “bad”; -50 to -69, “very bad”; and -70 and below, “execrable.”

The SWS attributed the six-point decrease in the national administration’s overall net satisfaction rating to declines in Mindanao (from +80 in June to +70 in September), in the rest of Luzon (from +73 to +63), and Visayas (from +71 to +70), combined with an increase in Metro Manila (from +59 to +71).

Meanwhile, rural net satisfaction with the Duterte administration fell from excellent to very good, from +74 in June to +67 in September.

Urban net satisfaction also went down from excellent to very good, from +71 in June to +67 in September.

Net satisfaction with the national administration declined from excellent to very good among Class D or the “masa,” from +73 in June 2019 to +66 in September 2019.

It also declined from excellent to very good in Class E, from +73 to +68. (Ellalyn Ruiz)
