President Rodrigo Roa Duterte received a ‘very good’ satisfaction rating in his first 100 days in office.
The Third Quarter 2016 Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, conducted from Sept. 24-27 among 1,200 respondents nationwide, disclosed a +64 net public satisfaction with President Duterte. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Filipinos expressed satisfaction with the President’s performance; 11%, dissatisfied; and 13%, undecided.
President Duterte’s rating in his first three months in office is the highest net satisfaction rating of a Chief Executive taken during the same period with the exception of former President Fidel V. Ramos’ rating. Former President Joseph Estrada received +60; former President Gloria Arroyo, +24; and former President Benigno S. Aquino III, +60.
Earlier, Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar welcomed the results of the survey as he expressed gratitude to the Filipino people for their show of support to the President.
“The survey results reflect the continuing public’s confidence in his campaign against drugs, criminality, terrorism, and corruption,” Andanar said.
Mindanao gave the President an ‘excellent’ net satisfaction rating at +85, and ‘very good’ (+62) in Visayas, (+58) Metro Manila and (+57) Balance Luzon.
The President likewise got ‘very good’ in both (+67) rural and (+63) urban areas and ‘very good’ across all classes (+65 in class D or masa, +65 in the poorest class E, and +56 in class ABC).
“This will inspire further the Chief Executive and his team to work double time and commit anew in delivering his promise of genuine and meaningful change. This is the President’s covenant with our people, and they deserve nothing less,” Secretary Andanar ended. (PNA)
