President Rodrigo Duterte’s net satisfaction rating dropped slightly but remained “very good”, the third quarter Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey for 2019 showed.

The SWS survey, conducted from Sept. 27 to 30, showed that 78 percent were satisfied by Duterte’s performance, 13 percent were dissatisfied, and 9 percent were undecided.

Compared to June 2019, gross satisfaction with Duterte dropped by 2 points from 80 percent, gross undecided did not change, and gross dissatisfaction rose by 1 point from 12 percent.

These figures gave Duterte a net satisfaction rating of +65, which is considered “very good” and 3 points below his record high very good +68 in June 2019.

Duterte’s net satisfaction rating dropped in Balance Luzon and Mindanao but rose in the Visayas and Metro Manila, the survey showed,

It also found that his net satisfaction rating fell in both rural and urban areas, and among men and women.

Meanwhile, Duterte’s net satisfaction rating increased in classes A, B, and C but dove 11 points among Class E and two points among Class D.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo welcomed the survey results, stressing that this showed that Filipinos remained “enamored” with Duterte, his policies, and actions of governance.

Panelo, however, reiterated that the President would simply shrug off his survey numbers, saying he is not interested in any “popularity contest.”

“He (Duterte) is unaffected and will just continue to do his constitutional task of serving and protecting the people even at the loss of his life, liberty and honor,” Panelo said in a statement.

The Palace official, meanwhile, assured that the Duterte administration will continue Duterte’s legacy of building a nation where Filipinos are comfortable, safe and secure.

“As payback to our people’s outpour of affection to PRRD, the Office of the President calls on everyone in the bureaucracy to remain tireless and hardworking in the service of the nation,” Panelo said.

In the third quarter Pulse Asia survey, Duterte’s approval rating went down from 85 percent in June to 78 percent in September while his trust rating skidded from 85 to 74 percent.

Panelo, however, considered this “still high” since surveys fluctuate depending on when they are fielded. (PNA)
