SWS: Top officials get lowest satisfaction ratings

/ 02:42 AM December 22, 2015

TOP GOVERNMENT officials’ public satisfaction ratings dropped to their lowest, according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

The nationwide poll conducted from Dec. 5 to 8 found 52 percent of 1,200 respondents satisfied with Vice President Jejomar Binay, while 28 percent were dissatisfied and 20 percent undecided, resulting in a record-low net satisfaction rating (satisfied minus dissatisfied) of a “moderate” +24.

The latest figure was 9 points lower than the +33 (58 percent satisfied and 25 percent dissatisfied) Binay obtained in the previous quarter, which SWS rated as “good.”

Net public satisfaction with Senate President Franklin Drilon was sharply “downgraded” to “neutral” +7 (38 percent satisfied and 31 percent dissatisfied) from his record-high “good” +42 (61 percent satisfied and 18 percent dissatisfied) in September.

Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. also saw his satisfaction rating fall to -1 (31 percent satisfied and 32 percent dissatisfied) from +5 (34 percent satisfied and 29 percent dissatisfied), which SWS rated as both “neutral.”

Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno still posted a “neutral” net satisfaction rating of -1 (29 percent satisfied and 31 percent dissatisfied, correctly rounded) from +4 (33 percent satisfied and 29 percent dissatisfied).

Results of the survey released last week found that President Aquino’s net satisfaction rating also went down by 9 points to +32 (58 percent satisfied and 26 percent dissatisfied) from +41 in September (64 percent satisfied and 22 percent dissatisfied, correctly rounded).

The survey also showed that the Senate retained its “good” net satisfaction score but was lower by 14 points, from +44 (63 percent satisfied and 18 percent dissatisfied, correctly rounded) in September to +30 (52 percent satisfied and 22 percent dissatisfied).

Net satisfaction with the House of Representatives suffered a double-digit decline but remained “moderate,” from +26 (48 percent satisfied and 23 percent dissatisfied, correctly rounded) to +16 (42 percent satisfied and 26 percent dissatisfied).

Both the Supreme Court and the Cabinet posted a 5-point drop in their net satisfaction scores, from +27 (50 percent satisfied and 23 percent dissatisfied) to +22 (47 percent satisfied and 25 percent dissatisfied), and from +16 (40 percent satisfied and 23 percent dissatisfied) to +11 (38 percent satisfied and 27 percent dissatisfied), respectively.

The noncommissioned survey, the results of which were first published in BusinessWorld, had a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3 percentage points. Inquirer Research
