SWS: ‘Very good’ net satisfaction rating for PBBM; ‘excellent’ for VP Sara in 4Q 2022


President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. received a “very good” net satisfaction rating of +68 (percentage of satisfied minus percentage of dissatisfied), while Vice President Sara Duterte got an “excellent” rating of +77, based on the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey conducted in December 2022.

“Base dun as pinakahuling survey ng SWS, merong net +68 na nagsasabi na sila ay nasisiyahan sa pagganap ng tungkulin ni Pangulong Bongbong Marcos Jr. (Based on the latest SWS survey, there is a net +68 who say that they are satisfied with the performance of President Bongbong Marcos Jr.),” SWS vice president Gerardo Sandoval said in his presentation as part of the annual SWS Survey Review held at the Asian Institute of Management on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Sandoval noted that the December 2022 rating of President Marcos is higher than the October 2022 rating of +63, but it is also “very good.”

SWS terminology for net satisfaction ratings are: +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); and –70 and below (execrable).

“In terms of the rating of the Vice President, we saw here that in the survey, VP Duterte obtained a net +77 satisfaction rating, up from a net rating of +73,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sandoval said the national administration received an “excellent” +74 for its overall net satisfaction rating.

It registered a “very good” net satisfaction rating for its efforts to help the poor (+64) and a “good” net satisfaction rating for its campaign against illegal drugs (+46).

However, the national administration received a “moderate” net rating on efforts to fight corruption (+12) and a “neutral” net rating on efforts to fight inflation (+1).

The survey was conducted from Dec. 10 to 14 with 1,200 adult respondents nationwide.
