Robredo satisfaction rating ‘good,’ Sotto ‘very good’
MANILA, Philippines — The net satisfaction rating of Vice President Leni Robredo rose from “moderate” to good in the first quarter of 2019, according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS), the results of which were released on Tuesday.
Robredo’s net satisfaction rating improved by 15 points from +27 in December 2018, to +42 in March 2019. A score of +42 falls within the “good” ratings of the survey.
The survey showed that 63 percent of adult Filipinos are satisfied with Robredo’s performance while 21 percent are dissatisfied.
The SWS said that Robredo’s rating improved after an increase by 26 points in Balance Luzon, 17 points in the Visayas, and 2 points in Mindanao, negating the Vice President’s 2-point decline in Metro Manila.
Robredo’s rating also increased among residents of both rural and urban areas, and all basic socio-demographics except among the 18-24 year olds.
Meanwhile, Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III retained his “very good” assessment with a net satisfaction rating of +61.
According to the survey, 71 percent of adult Filipinos were satisfied with Sotto’s performance while 10 percent said they were dissatisfied.
Sotto retained his “very good” rating in Balance Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao, and Metro Manila; and in all basic socio-demographics.
House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Chief Justice Bersamin also stayed in their December 2018 rating of “poor” and “moderate,” respectively.
Arroyo garnered a net satisfaction rating of –17 after only 29 percent of the respondents said they are satisfied with the House Speaker’s performance with 46 percent saying they were dissatisfied.
This, however, is still higher than Arroyo’s December 2018 rating of –21.
Bersamin, meanwhile, retained his “moderate” performance at +14 despite having three-point increase from his +11 rating in December 2018.
SWS said the respondents were asked to rate the performance of the top government officials next to the president by answering the question, “Please tell me how satisfied or dissatisfied you are with the performance of [NAME] as [POSITION]. Are you very satisfied, somewhat satisfied, undecided if satisfied or dissatisfied, somewhat dissatisfied, very dissatisfied, or you have not ever heard or read anything about [NAME]?”].
The survey was conducted from March 28-31, 2019 using face-to-face interviews of 1,440 adults, aged 18 years old and above, nationwide.
