MANILA, Philippines — Filipinos gave President Rodrigo Duterte a “very good” net satisfaction rating of +66 in the latest Social Weather Stations survey, a “new personal record-high” for him according to the polling firm.

The noncommissioned survey, conducted from June 23 to 26 and first reported in BusinessWorld, which has first printing rights on the poll results, involved face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults, with sampling error margins of ±3% for national percentages and ±6% each for Balance Luzon, Metro Manila, Visayas, and Mindanao.

SWS said Duterte’s latest net satisfaction rating “is three points above the very good +63 in December 2016 and March 2017, and is a new personal record-high, surpassing the previous personal record of +64 in September 2016.”

The rating is obtained by subtracting the percentage of dissatisfied from the satisfied.

The survey found 78 percent of respondents satisfied with Duterte’s performance, a three-point increase from 75 percent in March, with dissatisfaction unchanged at 12 percent. The undecided dropped two points from 12 to 10 percent.

In comparison to Duterte, SWS said the personal best net satisfaction ratings of past presidents were:

  • Cory Aquino, excellent +72 in October 1986
  • Fidel Ramos, very good +69 in July 1993
  • Joseph Estrada, very good +67 in March 1999
  • Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, good +30 in March 2004
  • Benigno Aquino III, very good +67 in August 2012

The rise in Duterte’s overall net satisfaction since March was attributed to an 11-point increase in the Visayas and 8 points in Balance Luzon, which offset a 12-point decline in his home turf of Mindanao and a point in Metro Manila.

Notwithstanding the drop in Mindanao, his rating remained excellent there at 75 (83% satisfied, 8% dissatisfied). His rating was also an excellent +73 (83% satisfied, 10% dissatisfied) in the Visayas.

“It stayed very good in Balance Luzon, at +58 (73% satisfied, 15% dissatisfied) in June, up by 7 points from +51 (68% satisfied, 17% dissatisfied) in March” and “very good in Metro Manila, at +63 (77% satisfied, 13% dissatisfied, correctly rounded) in June, hardly moving from +64 (76% satisfied, 12% dissatisfied) in March.”

The survey results showed Duterte rating “very good” in all classes, with class E giving him the highest score of +67 (80% satisfied, 13% dissatisfied), up seven points from +60 (71% satisfied, 11% dissatisfied) in March.

Class ABC rated him +59 (65% satisfied, 6% dissatisfied), up by 3 points from +56 (67% satisfied, 11% dissatisfied) in March, while class D rated him +66 (78% satisfied, 12% dissatisfied), up two points from +64 (77% satisfied, 13% dissatisfied).

Among genders, his rating was also a very good +69 (79% satisfied, 11% dissatisfied, correctly rounded) among women, up eight points from +61 (74% satisfied, 13% dissatisfied) in March, and +63 (77% satisfied, 14% dissatisfied) among men, up two points from +65 (77% satisfied, 12% dissatisfied).

The 35-44 age group rated Duterte +72 (82% satisfied, 10% dissatisfied, correctly rounded), a 13-point rise that nudged him from very good to excellent, although he also dropped a grade to very good among 25-34 year olds, who rated him +67 (79% satisfied, 11% dissatisfied, correctly rounded), down by 4 points from +71 (79% satisfied, 8% dissatisfied) in March.

He also retained his “very good” rating among all other age groups.

On the other hand, college graduates continued to rate Duterte as excellent, giving him +76.

His ratings remained very good among non-elementary school graduates, elementary school graduates, and high school graduates.

NOTE: SWS terminology for Net Satisfaction Ratings: +70 and above, “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”; –70 and below, “execrable.” SWS considers the movement from one classification to another as either an “upgrade” or “downgrade.”
