Sumadsad pero ‘excellent’ pa rin: Du30 enjoys 83% trust rating, new SWS survey shows

Oct 11, 2016 @ 8:08

After three months in office, President Rodrigo Duterte saw his trust ratings dip, but still enjoys the trust of more than four out of five Filipinos, a survey by pollster Social Weather Stations showed.

SWS’ survey conducted Sept. 24 to 27 with 1,200 respondents showed Duterte’s public trust rating was an “excellent” net +76, with 83 percent having much trust and 8 percent with little trust, and 9 percent undecided.

This was lower than the “excellent” +79 trust rating in an SWS survey from June 24 to 27 (84 percent much trust, 5 percent little trust) and still much higher than a “moderate” +26 (54 percent much trust, 28 percent little trust) before the May 9 elections.

In contrast, his predecessor Benigno Aquino III, had a “very good” +67 (77 percent much trust, 10 percent little trust) in his first survey after taking office, conducted Sept. 4 to 7, 2010.

Aquino scored an “excellent” +83 (88 percent much trust, 4 percent little trust) shortly after his 2010 election victory.

SWS classifies net trust ratings of at least +70 as “excellent”; +50 to +69 “very “good””; +30 to +49 “good”; +10 to +29 “moderate”; +9 to -9 “neutral”; -10 to -29 “poor”; -30 to -49 “bad”; -50 to -69 “very bad”; and -70 and below “execrable.”

The results were posted Tuesday on SWS’ media partner BusinessWorld.

He got an “excellent” +92 in Mindanao, +73 in Visayas, and +76 in Metro Manila; and a “very good” +69 in Balance Luzon from an “excellent” +75.
