MANILA, Philippines—Vice President Jejomar Binay’s public net satisfaction rating dropped to its lowest point since he assumed office in 2010, the latest survey from public opinion pollster Social Weather Stations (SWS) revealed.


In a nationwide survey conducted from September 26-29 participated in by 1,200 adults, Binay’s third quarter ratings fell to +52 (70% satisfied, 17% dissatisfied) from +67 (78% satisfied, 11% dissatisfied) posted during the second quarter of the year.

Although still on the “very good” level, the +52 rating of Binay broke his lowest satisfaction record in November 2010 pegged at +57.


Despite the decline, Binay continues to enjoy the highest public satisfaction rating among top government officials.

The survey was conducted amid the ongoing Senate Blue Ribbon subcommittee hearing on the allegedly overpriced Makati City Hall Building 2 and allegations of graft and corruption.

Binay has refused to face the Senate inquiry into the allegations against him.

In the latest Pulse Asia survey conducted from Sept. 8 to 15, Binay also saw 15-point drops in his performance approval (66 from 81) and trust (64 from 79) ratings.

Meanwhile, in an SWS survey released last October 10, President Benigno Aquino III’s satisfaction rating improved from “moderate” +25 last quarter to “good” +34.

Ratings gain for Sereno, Drilon, Belmonte

The same survey also revealed that the Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, and Senate President Franklin Drilon enjoyed public satisfaction gains.


Drilon posted the highest gain in the survey as his net score rose by 16 points, from “moderate” +20 to “good” +36 rating.

Meanwhile, Belmonte’s rating increased from “neutral” +2 to “moderate” +13. Sereno’s net score also increased from “neutral” +6 to “moderate” +10.

Just like their heads, various government institutions also enjoyed an increase on their public satisfaction ratings.

The Senate’s rating improved from last quarter’s +12 to +28 while the House of Representatives’ net satisfaction score rose by eight points from +13 to +21.

The Supreme Court still enjoys a “good” rating and its satisfaction score increased by two points from last quarter’s +30 to +32.

The Cabinet is now at the “moderate” territory as its rating rose to a “good” +18 from a “neutral” +7.

The survey had sampling error margins of ±3% for national percentages.

SWS classifies net satisfaction ratings of +70 and above as “excellent”; +50 to +69 as “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.”
