President ‘very good’ again in SWS poll


President Aquino’s net satisfaction rating rose in March, a reversal from last December’s double-digit dip, the latest survey by Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed.

The survey, conducted from March 19 to 22, found that Aquino’s net satisfaction score increased by four points from 55 (72 percent satisfied minus 17 percent dissatisfied) at the end of 2012 to 59 (74 percent satisfied minus 15 percent dissatisfied).

The survey, first published in BusinessWorld, used 1,200 face-to-face interviews nationwide and had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points.

Earl G. Parreño, a political analyst at the Institute for Political and Electoral Reform, said the Aquino administration had been delivering on its anticorruption promise and pursuing programs such as the cash transfer and universal healthcare, which aim at improving the welfare of the poor.

“The people’s expectations of what the government should do are being met,” Parreño said in a phone interview.

He added that the government should boost its efforts in attracting more investments that would generate more jobs particularly in tourism and local industries.

Aquino’s latest rating is considered “very good” but still below his highest so far, 67 (77 percent satisfied minus 10 dissatisfied), obtained in August last year.

SWS classifies a net satisfaction rating of 70 and above as “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 President’s high approval ratings were an offshoot of the people’s “abiding confidence” in him and strong support for his reforms, Malacañang said Monday.

“The results of these surveys reflect the Filipino people’s abiding confidence in the President, and their support for the reforms that he continues to institute throughout the country,” presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said.

Lacierda credited government investments in social services, health and education, and strategic focusing of resources on agriculture, tourism and infrastructure, and the “culture of integrity in governance” for the “renewal of the people’s trust in their leaders.”

“All these have also led to the affirmation of the international community in our country’s progress, the latest evidence of which is the credit ratings upgrade from Fitch Ratings, placing our country at investment grade for the first time in its history,” he said, reacting to latest surveys by SWS and Pulse Asia.

By geographical region, Aquino’s performance improved in Luzon outside Metro Manila, from 54 [rounded off] (71 percent satisfied minus

16 percent dissatisfied) to 67 (79 percent satisfied minus 12 percent dissatisfied) and in Mindanao, from 57 [rounded off] (74 percent satisfied minus 16 percent dissatisfied) to 67 (79 percent satisfied minus

12 percent dissatisfied).

Down in Manila, Visayas

It slipped in Metro Manila, from 43 [rounded off] (68 percent satisfied minus 24 percent dissatisfied) to 40 (63 percent satisfied minus 23 percent dissatisfied) and in the Visayas, from 64 [rounded off] (77 percent satisfied minus 12 percent dissatisfied) to 46 [rounded off] (67 percent satisfied minus 20 percent dissatisfied).

The President’s rating was up by two points in Class ABC, from 64 [rounded off] (78 percent satisfied minus 13 percent dissatisfied) to 66 (78 percent satisfied minus 12 percent dissatisfied).

Up in Class E

It was up by three points in Class D, from 54 (71 percent satisfied minus 17 percent dissatisfied) to 57 (73 percent satisfied minus 16 percent dissatisfied), and by nine points in Class E, from 56 (74 percent satisfied minus 18 percent dissatisfied) to 65 (77 percent satisfied minus 12 percent dissatisfied).

Aquino’s rating gained in rural areas, from 60 [rounded off] (75 percent satisfied minus 14 percent dissatisfied) to 67 (78 percent satisfied minus 11 percent dissatisfied), while he scored 53  (71 percent satisfied minus

18 percent dissatisfied) in urban areas, against the previous 49

(69 percent satisfied minus 20 percent dissatisfied).

Among males, the President’s net satisfaction rating increased from 56 (73 percent satisfied minus 17 percent dissatisfied) to 58 [rounded off] (74 percent satisfied minus 15 percent dissatisfied). His rating also improved among women, from 55 (72 percent satisfied minus 17 percent dissatisfied) to 60 [rounded off] (75 percent satisfied minus 14 percent dissatisfied).

    Last week’s news included an article about possible extinction of some sea mammals…. Today’s news is about dwindling to extinction of those anti-PNoy people. From 17% down to 15%…. almost a rare breed….tsk tsk tsk

  • CPCook

    Congratulations to PNoy! I am one of those who did not vote for him, but extremely grateful that he won. If one is to be fair, PNoy is trying to run the way it should be. He is far from perfect, but by all accounts, he is honest and trustworthy. The survey did not cover the effect of the Fitch Ratings upgrade, and by next quarter the news would have been passe. I agree also that much more remains to be done, but things will not happen if we backslide to electing corrupt people. Let’s elect people who will help PNoy reform the government and institutionalize these reforms, not those who will be a burden or hindrance to reforms. PNoy has barely three years left. Who knows who will win in 2016.

    • Concur_Dissent

      I concur… I too did not vote for Pnoy (having lived in Las Pinas for the most of my adult life, you know what I mean). I don’t think that my first choice would have done better than PNoy…. I never thought someone could effectively address corruption in the Philippines…. I’m glad my first choice didn’t win…

    • speaksoftlylove

      Alam ko kung bakit tumaas ang rating ni PNoy: Ang mga sumusunod ay ang mga dahilan sa “very good” rating niya:

      1. Maraming Pilipino ang namatay sa Sabah at libolibo ang nagsilikas pabalik sa Mindanao;

      2. Araw araw na brown out sa Mindanao na umaabot sa mahigit na walong oras;

      3. At higit sa lahat ay 30 billion loss annually on rice smuggling, 32 billion loss annually on agriculture and poultry products smuglling, and 40 billion loss annually on oil smuggling.

      Kung ganyan ba naman ang accomnplishment mo sinong presidente and hindi mag “very good” sa survey ni Mahal Mang ahas, di ba Chief Cook? Btw, what’s cooking?

      • Simplify1

        Mas alam ko kung bakit tumaas ang rating ni PNoy: Ang mga sumusunod ay ang mga dahilan sa “very good” rating niya:

        1. Hindi nag padala si PNoy sa kagustuhan ng iilan lamang at hindi nadamay sa guerra ang mga matitinong pinoy na naniniwala sa rule of law.

        2. Araw araw ay patahimik na ang mindanao sapagkat malapit ng magkaroon ng peace treaty ng MILF

        3. At higit sa lahat ay naniniwala ang independent rating agency tulad ng Fitch na umuunlad na ang pilipinas bukod sa pumapayapa ang bansa at nabawasan ang corruption!!

        Kung ganyan ba naman ang accomnplishment mo sinong presidente and hindi mag “very good” sa survey ni Mahal Mang ahas, di ba lumang de-elsi na na eroplano? Btw, because of your old age, you still haven’t crashed?? hindi na 1945 ngayon! 2013 na! Hoy GISING!!


        Mas alam ko kung bakit tumaas ang rating ni PNoy: Ang mga sumusunod ay ang mga dahilan sa “very good” rating niya:

        1. kaya hinayaan mamamatay ang mga Pilipino sa Sabah kasi bianayaran sya ng Malaysia at pinondohan ang kampanya ng Team Brown out

        2.Araw araw tahinik sa Mindanao kasi walang kuryente lagi brown out wala ka maririnig na ingay. Peace treaty sa MILF kabayaran sa Malaysia para mapunta sa kanila ang Sabah

        3. Fitch rating nakakain ba un ng mga mahihirap at middle class kailangan ng bayan ay actual na resulta di puro sa papel lang

        President Benigno Aquino’s government has spent nearly half a billion pesos in its obsession to lobby credit rating agencies to upgrade the Philippines’ sovereign ratings from its speculative category.

        To project an image that Aquino’s becoming president alone boosted the country’s credit ratings, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisma right after his boss’ inauguration June 30, 2010 asked Fitch Ratings’ and Standard & Poor to rate the country’s sovereign risk.

        To Purisima’s chagrin, Fitch maintained it’s last rating (May 2009) for the previous government, at BB. Standard & Poor (S & P) however upgraded it from its lower rating July 2009 by a notch to BB-. In January, Moody’s would also move the country up by a notch from Ba3 to Ba3 positive (equivalent to BB-)

        However, all these new ratings meant Philippine credit was still speculative and not investment grade, and the improvements had nothing to do really with Aquino—unless one believes he is a miracle worker who changed the country’s economy within six months. It was due to his predecessor President Arroyo’s stellar success in putting the country’s finances in order starting with the E-VAT law in 2005—which actually cost her popular support— and in steering the country through the 2007 -2009 global financial crisis.

        The problem of course was that the economy and government finances was hardly unchanged since Aquino assumed office, with the record high of tax–to-GDP ratio of 16 percent in 2007 unbroken, with the similar measure last year only at 14 percent. Other macroeconomic fundamentals would also require years to change. For instance, the Philippines GDP per person in 2012 was at $2,600, growing insignificantly from 2010, and far from the average of investment-grade countries of $11,000.

        So what is the finance secretary to do? Try and try again. Keep dropping the coins in the jukebox.

        Upgrading of the country’s credit ratings is undoubtedly important. However, what raised eyebrows in the international financial community was that the Philippines asked for upgrades from all the three main credit rating agencies, and within six months, as if it was pitting one agency against another to come up with an upgrade, and even in effect bribing them, by “buying” as often as possible their products, i.e. the ratings.

        In 2011 for instance, Aquino asked the three agencies for five assessments, while in 2012 another five, as if the country’s macroeconomic fundamentals would change within six months. The Philippines under Aquino has in fact become a record holder for “buying” as often as it could the credit rating agencies’ “products”, even if it was not in a financial or economic crisis. (That situation would require frequent assessments of the impact of a government’s efforts to weather the crisis.)

        The Philippines has been like a sick man “going to one doctor to another and so often, hoping to get a good diagnosis,” a foreign banker quipped. This practice—called “rate-shopping”—actually has been a major criticism for the rating system, as it has been alleged that certain credit rating agencies have been known to unexpectedly change its assessments after several other grades by its rivals have been unchanged. In the Philippine case, observers are keenly awaiting whether the two bigger agencies, S & P and Moody’s would follow the smaller Fitch Ratings’ upgrade .

        This obsession to get good ratings is just fine for the credit rating agencies, since that’s where they make tons of money—S & P’s revenues in 2012 for instance topped $1 billion, and the profit margins of all three firms are over 50 percent.

        Contrary to what many people think, credit rating agencies do not rate countries unless they are asked to, and unless they are paid for it.

        The fees of the top three rating agencies—S & P, Moody’s, and Fitch Ratings—which account for 90 percent of corporate and sovereign ratings, are computed as a percentage (about 5 basis points) of the value of the credit papers to be rated. For sovereign (a nation’s) ratings, a straight fee is charged which ranges from $750,000 (for
        Fitch Ratings reputably the cheapest) to as high as $2 million for Standard & Poor, the biggest agency. This includes the travel and accommodation fees of its analysts as well as legal fees, which have ballooned because of the legal suits brought against the three in recent years.

        While the rating agencies and our government haven’t made public the fees charged for Philippine assessments, a source at the government’s inter-departmental unit the “Investors Relations Office” disclosed that the recent Fitch rating cost taxpayers “close to a million dollars”.

        That fee is a low estimate since Fitch, the third biggest agency, has been undercutting its two bigger rivals with lower charges. Assuming however that that is the average cost for the 13 assessments asked by the Aquino government, taxpayers have spent $13 million for these ratings since 2010. That’s equivalent to P532 million.

        Since this government has been shouting the word “transparency” again and again, I’m sure Mr. Purisima can provide the country with the more accurate cost of how much we paid for the ratings.

        Is it worth it? Yes, if you believe the criticisms—which became louder since the colossal collapse of US financial firms and debt instruments which the three firms rated AAA—that the “issuer-pays” fee model (in contrast to the subscriber-pays system in the 1970s) inevitably clouds analysts’ thinking. There is even a study that found that ratings for larger debt instruments and more frequent assessments lead to better grads.

        Yes of course, if it means that the government would get lower interest rates on its loans. But the government hasn’t been borrowing from the global market, since the country is awash with dollars from OFWS, and its budget deficits are under control.

        And yes of course, so Aquino crowed about the upgrade last Easter, to even compare it to Christ’s resurrection.
        But really, do we really have to spend half a billion pesos asking three agencies twice a year to get only one-notch upgrades?

    At the end of the day, there is value to good governance. My relatives in RP are saying that in our province, a lot of infrastructure projects are being done unlike the previous admin where things are done in paper only. There was supposed to be a road project to link our province with another and billions went to a construction company with ties to the husband but in reality only a few bits and pieces were done. People see things like these and they will opine accordingly. More power to good governance. I hope Pinoy will finish what he has started.

    I can’t just imagine how much Malacanang ComsOp is paying to SWS as every time Panot’s governance is in question, the most recent one of which is the bombshell on “oil smuggling” putting in doubt Panot’s “tuwid na daan” stand on the perennial corruption-tainted Bureau of Customs – SWS will immediately flood the media with this redundant executive survey of trust ratings. Big money huh?

    SWS is itself demagogueing on the public! WTF!

    I didn’t vote for Pnoy during the 2010 elections. I am an avid Gibo supporter and still am. Despite all that I can say that Pnoy has somehow exceeded my expectations. I thought he was going to be like his mother “Cory Aquino” (one of the worst President’s in Philippine history) and he proved me wrong.

    Pnoy achievements
    1) The RH law (unless we rally behind it then the blasted SC will have its way).
    2) Ousting of a midnight appointed Chief Justice
    3) Jailed a former corrupt President
    4) Fitch upgrade (in due fairness credit also goes to Gloria even if she is in jail)
    5) The economy has improved under his presidency.
    6) K12 program.

    Come 2016 if it isn’t too much to ask.
    Gibo for President!

    Don’t worry Pnoy you are still a good President so give yourself a pat in the back.

  • lolo_Jose

    Conversely, the Vice-President has scored much higher which is such a pain in the a$$ for those who’re gloating over this high rating of PNoy.

    Isa si Sen. Alan Cayetano sa pinakamaraming absent sa Senado. 140 lang ipinasok sa 212 sessions days. Ibig sabihin absent siya ng 72 days.

  • Noriel Bernabe

    If only I didn’t know that relatives of the chief executive are the once running these paid survey firms; I would have believe these tales of high ratings.

    It is too obvious that doctored surveys from FALSE ASIA and SWS comes out every time the chief executive bungles. It is proven and tested to save noynoy’s face. Thanks to false asia and sws fake survey firms.

    According to the newest survey, 74 percent of the people in mindanao are happy having 10 hour blackouts. 74 percent of our brother muslims are happy that their fellow muslims were murdered in malaysia and their rights being violated. 74 percent of the people in mindanao are happy closing their business due to longstanding rotational brownouts. And majority are happy with noynoy’s decision to surrender our legitimate claim on SABAH to Malaysian PM? Wow, really?

  • Noriel Bernabe

    The 15th Congress is ranked second laziest congress we ever had based on the numbers of laws passed (in a span of more than two decades). Do your research and you’re see, that noynoying government has done little for this country.

  • disqusted0fu

    Surveys very good again in brainwashing the people. This is hard to take in because of what’s been happening in the PH.

    The anti corruption promise of the Aquino admin only applies to their foes, for their persecution, while their allies have all the freedom to be corrupt. The cash transfer works as a pork barrel for the administration allies. Improving the welfare of the poor? Or improving their population? Number of poor people has now reached 25M. These are just a few if the horrible things that these surveys cover up for.

  • antiscam

    I’m so happy for PNOY. I also did not vote for him last 2010 but i am now a convert. As a sign of my confidence in him, I will vote for whoever he endorses in this coming May elections and in the presidential elections of 2016. I hope his chosen heir will win and not Binay because I have also lived in Makati and I also know Binay’s corruptions and dynastic ambitions. GO PNOY!!!

    Its true, Pnoy’s image is hurting a little bit in Mindanao because of the brownouts. But its not entirely the government’s fault that there is a shortage of power. Economic growth is also one of the positive factors that contributed to the shortage.

    However, there’s not much brownout in both Davao and Cagayan de Oro. In
    Cagayan de Oro, local power distributor, Minergy, has installed an additional 27 Megawatts capacity in 2012. Construction of a 15 megawatt hydroelectric plant in Misamis Oriental is also underway but was delayed when NPA rebels torched vital plant and heavy construction equipment last year.

    Power utilities did not learn from their lesson from the 2009 power crisis. It was only Cepalco and Davao light who had the foresight to improve generating capacities and capabilities and thus sparing Davao and Cagayan de Oro from the horrible brownouts.

    Iligan City is also deeply embroiled in high drama of economic-political interests between the city government, Iligan Light and Power and Alcatara’s Conal Holdings that prevented the rehabilitation and operation of an existing 100 megawatt power plant. Another 10 megawatt plant in Gingoog City is also delayed due to import dispute with vital equipment stuck at port pending release by the Bureau of Customs.

    It was Ramos’ and GMA’s privatization program that saw vital industries sold eg National Steel Corp, Transco, Power Barges. In particular, GMA, collusion with the Aboitizes for the privatization of the Mindanao hydro plants that has held back NPC from improving the capacities of Agus and Pulangi Hydro Plants.

    NPC’s debilitating debt also prevented NPC from pursuing new hydro plants after the completion of Agus 1 in the late 80’s.

  • Noriel Bernabe

    reasons why people are happy under noy’s govt.

    – unemployment rate increased by almost a million despite of gdp “growth”
    – More than 1 billion was loss because of the unaccounted CCT
    – 32 billion pesos estimated loss revenue due to rice smuggling
    -30 to 40 billion loss due to oil smuggling
    – P3.6 billion in loss revenue due to missing container vans
    -the much vaunted PPP has no project to show off after three years
    -philippines lags compared to other ASEAN nation when it comes to FDI
    -Recent study showed corruption perception in the government is high hampering economic growth
    -2011 Philippines was named as worse country for investors (East ASIA)
    -Many people from Mindanao were killed by flood due to cancellations of existing flood projects under noy’s admin
    -5 million and 30 million were donated by noynoy to MILF and ABB this happened after MILF ambused our soldiers in mindanao.

    Ha ha ha it was so funny about this rating. how can a president get high rating, all he does is to campaign. Just amazing…what a great president, all he does is to ridicule his non allies, which is so unbecoming of a president. Look, be realistic, we have so many problems in our country. Poverty, unemployment, crimes, etc etc. where is he? and yet he has good rating? just be real people, he always portray himself a good one, but -..where are his projects so to employ our needy kababayans.

  • JasonBieber

    This seems to be one of the most inaccurate politically driven propaganda that the PNoy Admin has shown of late. They even had some so-called political analyst exclaim that PNoy has been delivering on his promises to uplift the welfare of the poor. That is so not the case.

    There are millions and millions of poverty stricken Filipinos without food and proper access to water and without shelter and Malacanang has not done anything about it. So to say that PNoy’s approval ratings are high then they must be taking the surveys from the well-off and rich pinoys who are not struggling like the others.

  • Albert Einstien

    puro propaganda na naman paglolokohin na naman mga tao..di ba kahapon lang BINANSAGAN na nga na ” SMUGGLING CAPITAL ang PILIPINAS UNDER PNOY “….pag magbayad ng survey dapat 99% na lan palagay nyo LOKOHAN lng naman e…lol

    Precisely this is the crux of my adamant support to his Team Pnoy, his acclaimed dynamism to propel our country to a better tomorrow. And such is too the main reason why I am now campaigning to vote straight Team Pnoy here in the City of Baguio so that the Team Una be obviated in the future to form a hostile senate that shall derail his matuwid na daan program that had already ensconced us to economic prosperity

    I dont regret using my telephone convincing my relatives and acquaintances to vote for PNOY . Although we are far from solving some major problems in our country , some sign of positive aspects are clear. Hoping that deserving and honest candidates will win this election to pave the way for more reform which will give us more progress and stability.

  • jga94

    I like PNoy and this govt but these surveys should really have a disclosure statement and say who is funding them or who commissioned the survey…and they should write down how they determine who gets the interviews…how the sampling is done and other pertinent data to make these surveys believable.

  • jga94

    Nakakatawa mga comments ng iba dito….eh kahit naman ata sinong presidente parating may inilalabas na surveys like this….kaya na cocompare pa nila yung iba’s-ibang presidents…..I for one if interviewed would also give PNoy a very good rating….his govt is not perfect but I trust he is doing what he thinks is best for this country and on what he promised….

  • JasonBieber

    More surveys that don;t make sense. PNoy thinks that surveys can determine his success as President but all it does is show how detached he is from the most poverty stricken Filipinos.

    Malacanang acts as if this is something to boast about when in reality it proves nothing other than it appears to be clear that the poor Filipinos don’t participate in these surveys because they are too hungry to engage themselves in surveys.
