MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s satisfaction ratings bounced back, based on a new Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, but dropped significantly in Mindanao.

According to the new SWS survey, Marcos had a net satisfaction rating of +47 (which is the sum of the satisfied and the dissatisfied) as of December 2023.


The President’s satisfaction rating was previously at 44+ as of September 2023.


“Compared to September 2023, gross satisfaction with President Marcos stayed at 65%, gross undecided rose from 14%, and gross dissatisfaction fell slightly from 21%. The resulting net satisfaction rating is +47 (% satisfied minus % dissatisfied), classified by SWS as good (+30 to +49). This is 3 points up from the good +44 in September 2023,” said the SWS in its report.

A closer look at the data, however, reveals a lower satisfaction rate in Mindanao.

“Compared to September 2023, net satisfaction with Pres. Marcos rose by 8 points from +36 in Metro Manila, by 4 points from +48 in Balance Luzon, and by 18 points from +33 in the Visayas. However, it fell by 12 points from +50 in Mindanao,” SWS reported.

According to the SWS Survey, net satisfaction rose in rural areas but fell in urban areas. It also rose among men but remained steady among women.

The SWS also took note that there was a higher satisfaction rating among respondents who did not finish higher education, and it progressively lowered the higher the educational attainment.


“President Marcos’ net satisfaction rating was very good +51 among those who either had no formal education or some elementary education, very good +56 among those who either finished elementary or had some high school education, good +45 among those who either finished junior high school, had some vocational schooling, had some senior high school, finished senior high school, completed vocational school, or attended some college, and good +36 among those who either graduated from college or took post-graduate studies,” said the SWS.

The SWS survey was conducted through face-to-face interviews from December 8 to 11, 2023, among 1,200 adults. The respondents were spread evenly throughout Metro Manila, Balance Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
