MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Jejomar Binay incurred the lowest satisfaction rating since becoming the second highest government official of the land, the latest survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS) revealed on Monday.

In a survey conducted from Nov. 27 to Dec. 1, 2014 with 1,800 respondents, Binay’s satisfaction rating slipped to a “good” +44 rating (65 percent satisfied, 20 percent satisfied) from third quarter of 2014’s “very good” rating of +52 (70 percent satisfied, 17 percent satisfied), which was his previous lowest record.


Binay still prevails as the top pick to succeed President Benigno Aquino III in the 2016 elections, according to results of the SWS survey.

Meanwhile, satisfaction ratings of Senate President Franklin Drilon and Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. plunged, while Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s score “barely moved” from her previous rating.


Drilon’s latest satisfaction rating was down eight points from his previous rating, posting a “moderate” +28 from “good” +36. Belmonte’s score still borders in the “moderate” level: from third quarter’s +13 to +11.

The chief justice incurred a +1 increment in her score: from third quarter’s +10 to +11.

As for key government institutions, the Senate and the Supreme Court incurred the same satisfaction rating of “moderate” +26 from “moderate” +28 and “good” +32 ratings respectively.

The House of Representatives incurred a slip of +1 from “moderate” +21 to +20 in the latest survey.

The Cabinet recorded the lowest score of a “neutral” +9 from “moderate” +18.

SWS classifies net satisfaction ratings of +70 and above as “excellent”; +50 to +69 as “very good”; +30 to +49, as “good”; +10 to +29, as “moderate”; +9 to -9, as “neutral”; -10 to -29, as “poor”; -30 to -49, as “bad”; -50 to -69, as “very bad”; and -70 and below as “execrable.”

The survey has sampling error margins of ±2 percent for national percentages; ±6 percent each for Metro Manila, “Balance Luzon” and Mindanao; and ±3 percent for the Visayas.


The survey was conducted with face-to-face interviews.
