Among the top officials in the line of succession for the presidency, only Vice President Jejomar Binay scored a satisfaction rating in March higher than the rating he posted in December last year, according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

His plummeting public satisfaction ratings are not because of anything he has done but are the effect of the public’s sentiment against corruption in the previous administration, President Aquino said on Tuesday.
The satisfaction rating of top government officials improved between March and June, with Vice President Jejomar Binay trumping even President Aquino, the Second Quarter 2013 Social Weather Report showed.
Despite the persistence of high poverty rates in the country, at least four in every five adult Filipinos, or 81 percent, said they were satisfied with their life in December last year, a survey found.
The satisfaction ratings of top government officials slipped amid controversies surrounding the reproductive health bill and the devastation wrought by Typhoon “Pablo” in Mindanao in December, a recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed.
