SWS: Duterte net satisfaction rating in Q3 improves, now ‘very good’

President Rodrigo Duterte's performance garnered a "very good" net satisfaction rating in the third quarter of 2018, according to a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

The survey results released on Saturday showed that 70 percent of adult Filipinos were satisfied with Duterte, which is five points higher than his gross satisfaction rating of 65 percent in June 2018.

Only 16 percent of the respondents were dissatisfied with Duterte's performance as president while 14 percent were undecided.

According to the latest SWS survey, the President recovered from his lowest recorded score of "good" in Q2.


The survey showed Duterte's net satisfaction rating was at +54 in Q3, with a nine-point increase from his +45 rating last June, bringing his rating from "good" to "very good".

The third quarter satisfaction poll was conducted September 15 to 23 using face-to-face interviews of 1,500 adults (18 years old and above) nationwide.

The survey used sampling error margins of ±3% for national percentages, and ±4% for Balance Luzon, and ±6% each for Metro Manila, Visayas, and Mindanao. — MDM, GMA News
