Inspiring! Palace elated over Duterte’s very good satisfaction ratings
Presidential spokesman Undersecretary Ernesto Abella said the President Duterte and his cabinet secretaries are inspired by the recent survey results reflecting a “very good” net satisfactory rating for the present administration.
Abella said the latest Social Welfare Survey (SWS) “continues to serve as a source of inspiration to the President and his official family.”
“The 4th Quarter 2016 Social Weather Survey conducted on December 3 to 6 via face-to-face interviews with 1,500 adults nationwide with sampling error margins of ±3 points for national percentages and ±4 for Balance Luzon as well as ±6 points each for Metro Manila, Visayas and Mindanao found 73 percent of respondents satisfied with the national government, 12 percent dissatisfied and 15 percent undecided, yielding a net satisfaction rating of +61 percent, classified by the Social Weather Survey as ‘very good’,” Abella said at a press briefing.
Abella also mentioned the Pulse Asia Survey showing President Duterte as the most trusted government official in the Philippines. The much-needed boost on Duterte’s administration is timely since he has been battling criticisms for human rights abuses that marked his bloody drug war.
