Robredo satisfaction rating improves, gets boost from poorest sector —SWS

Vice President Leni Robredo's net satisfaction rating improved to good at 33 percent from moderate or 28 percent three months ago due to increased ratings among the poorest sectors, a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed Wednesday.

The SWS poll, conducted last September 27 to 30, revealed that Robredo posted a very good rating of 51 percent among Class E or nine percentage points up from her June score of 42 percent—which is deemed good—in the same segment.

Robredo’s ratings among Class D also improved to 31 percent, a rating  deemed good, from 25 percent or a moderate rating.

The Vice President also scored gains in all areas, with the biggest gain coming from Mindanao—considered a bailiwick of President Rodrigo Duterte who hails from Davao City.

Robredo scored a 32 percent net satisfaction rating in Mindanao, more than double than the 15 percent she garnered there in June.

Robredo’s gains in non-Mindanao areas, however, are minimal.

The Vice President scored 46 percent net satisfaction rating in Visayas, just slightly up from her June score of 44 percent. Both ratings are deemed good.

Robredo also posted a P34 percent rating in Balance Luzon from 33 percent in June.

The Vice President managed to garner a 15 percent rating in Metro Manila, but it is also a measly gain from her June score of 14 percent.

The September 2019 SWS poll used face-to-face interviews of 1,800 adults aged 18 years old and above nationwide. Of this number, 600 are residing in Balance Luzon and Mindanao, while 300 residents were surveyed each in Metro Manila and the Visayas.

The margin of error for national percentages is two percent, while that for Balance Luzon and Mindanao is at four percent.

The sampling error margin for Metro Manila and Visayas is six percent.

Robredo is still battling a poll protest filed by former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.
