Former President Benigno Aquino III ended his term with a net satisfaction rating halved compared to that when he assumed office, but it was still the highest among recent chief executives, according to a survey by Social Weather Stations (SWS).

In an SWS survey conducted from June 24 to 27, Aquino got a net satisfaction rating of a “moderate” +29 (57% satisfied, 28% dissatisfied), two percentage points higher than the “moderate” +27 he received in April.

He received his best net satisfaction rating, a “very good” +67, in August 2012, while his worst score was recorded in March 2015, at the height of the Mamasapano operation controversy that killed 44 elite policemen.
