MANILA, Philippines–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.

The First Quarter 2014 Social Weather Survey report said Senate President Franklin Drilon and Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr., both belonging to President Aquino’s Liberal Party, as well as Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno, a presidential appointee, all received lower scores.

The survey was conducted from March 27 to 30 and was first published in BusinessWorld.

Binay posted a net satisfaction rating of plus 73 (82 percent satisfied minus 9 percent dissatisfied) in March, enjoying an 11-point increase for an “excellent” score, an upgrade from the “very good” plus 62 (75 percent satisfied minus 13 percent dissatisfied) he rated in December.

In the 15 surveys since September 2010, Binay garnered eight “excellent” and seven “very good” ratings. His June 2013 rating of plus 76 was his best record, a level he first notched in August 2012.

The SWS considers a rating of +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.” “Downgrade” and “upgrade” are terms used by SWS to describe a move from one classification to another.

The survey found 46 percent satisfied and 29 percent dissatisfied with the performance of Drilon, resulting in a net satisfaction rating of plus 17, down by eight points from December but still rated “moderate.”

The net satisfaction ratings of Belmonte and Sereno were downgraded from “moderate” to “neutral.”

The Speaker scored a minus 1 (32 percent satisfied minus 32 percent dissatisfied; correctly rounded) in March from plus 16 (41 percent satisfied minus 25 percent dissatisfied) in December, while the Chief Justice got plus 4 (34 percent satisfied minus 30 percent dissatisfied) from plus 16 (40 percent satisfied minus 25 percent dissatisfied, correctly rounded).

Aquino’s net satisfaction rating in the first quarter, which was released earlier, also dropped from plus 49 in December to plus 45 in March, but was still considered “good.”

The performances of the top government institutions were also rated.

From a “good” plus 33 (57 percent satisfied minus 24 percent dissatisfied) in December, net satisfaction with the Senate fell to a “moderate” plus 26 (54 percent satisfied minus 29 percent dissatisfied; correctly rounded) in March.

The net satisfaction with the House of Representatives also decreased from a “moderate” plus 26 (51 percent satisfied minus 24 percent dissatisfied; correctly rounded) in December to “moderate” plus 18 (45 percent satisfied minus 26 percent dissatisfied; correctly rounded).

The Supreme Court’s rating, still considered “good,” was plus 35 (56 percent satisfied minus 21 percent dissatisfied) in March, down from plus 36 (57 percent satisfied minus 22 percent dissatisfied; correctly rounded).

The net rating of the Cabinet as a whole remained unchanged at a “moderate” plus 20 (45 percent satisfied minus 25 percent dissatisfied).

The survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adult respondents nationwide and had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points for national percentages.–Inquirer Research
