In the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey conducted last June 27 to 30 among 1,200 respondents, 65 percent of Filipinos expressed satisfaction and 20 percent dissatisfaction with the performance of President Duterte in the second quarter of 2018.

About 15 percent expressed indecision about the issue.

Compared to March 2018, SWS pointed out that the Filipinos’ satisfaction with the President declined five points from 70 percent, while dissatisfaction climbed six points from 14 percent.

Indecision fell by two points from 17 percent.

President Duterte’s gross rating translates to a net satisfaction rating to a new personal low of +45 (percent satisfied minus percent dissatisfied), classified by SWS as “good.”

SWS explained that the 11-point decline is down by one grade from the “very good” +56 (70 percent satisfied, 14 percent dissatisfied) in March 2018.

It surpassed the previous personal low of good +48 in September 2017.

SWS terminology for net satisfaction ratings are translated as follows: +70 and above 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 11-point decline in President Duterte’s net satisfaction rating from March 2018 to June 2018 was due to declines of 20 points in Metro Manila, 18 points in the Visayas, six points in rest of Luzon, and six points in Mindanao.
