Number of Filipinos dissatisfied with Leni Robredo grow at an alarming rate -Poll

Lesser number of Filipinos satisfied with performance of Robredo
By Ellalyn de Vera Ruiz

Duterte's ratings are up. His Cabinet's ratings are up. Robredo's slid down from good to moderate, with her rating at 26 percent.

Could it be that the entire PH is catching up to the truth? Hallelujah
Fewer Filipinos have expressed satisfaction with the performance of Vice President Leni Robredo in the past three months, based on the second quarter of 2019 Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey results.

In the nationwide survey conducted last June 22-26 among 1,200 respondents, SWS found 57 percent satisfied and 29 percent dissatisfied with the performance of Vice President Robredo.

These translate to a net satisfaction rating of +28, classified by SWS as “moderate.” It is significantly lower than Robredo’s net rating of “good” +42 (63 percent satisfied, 21 percent dissatisfied) in March 2019.

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 pollster attributed the 14-point decline in the overall net satisfaction rating of Vice President Robredo to decreases of 21 points in Visayas, 18 points in Mindanao, and 13 points in the rest of Luzon, combined with a steady net rating in Metro Manila.

The rural net satisfaction with Robredo fell from very good to good, down from +50 in March to +41 in June, while urban net satisfaction also fell from good to moderate, down from +30 in March to +12 in June.

Compared to March 2019, the June 2019 survey found double-digit declines in the Vice President’s Robredo’s net satisfaction rating in all basic socio-demographics, except for the single-digit changes among the class E or the “poorest” (down from +50 to +42), the 18-24 year olds (up slightly from +29 to +30), and college graduates (up from +6 to +13).

In the same survey period, SWS found that the public’s net satisfaction with Senate President Vicente Sotto III stayed “very good” at +60 (72 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied). It was down slightly from +61 in March 2019.

SWS said the one-point decline in the overall net satisfaction rating of Sotto was due to decreases of eight points in Mindanao and five points in the rest of Luzon, combined with increases of 11 points in Metro Manila and three points in Visayas.

Rural net satisfaction with Sotto stayed very good, down slightly from +61 in March to +60 in June, while urban net satisfaction also stayed very good, although down slightly from +62 in March to +60 in June.

Compared to March 2019, the June 2019 survey found single-digit changes in the Senate President’s net satisfaction ratings across basic socio-demographics, except for the double-digit declines among the 25-34 year olds (down from +65 to +52) and college graduates (down from +51 to +40).



The June survey also found 29 percent satisfied and 49 percent dissatisfied with then House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. The resulting net satisfaction rating was “poor” -20, down from the “poor” -17 in March 2019.

The three-point decline in the final overall net satisfaction rating of Macapagal-Arroyo was due to decreases of seven points in the rest of Luzon and four points in Metro Manila, combined with increases of three points in Visayas and one point in Mindanao.

Urban net satisfaction with the former House Speaker fell from “poor” to “bad,” down from -26 in March to -33 in June, while rural net satisfaction stayed at poor -10 from March to June.

Compared to March 2019, the June 2019 survey found single-digit changes in Macapagal-Arroyo’s net satisfaction rating across basic socio-demographics, except for the double-digit changes among class E (up from -22 to -3), among non-elementary graduates (up from -15 to net zero), and among college graduates (down from -9 to -21).

In the same survey period, about 37 percent said they were satisfied and 24 percent dissatisfied with Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin.

His resulting net satisfaction rating stayed “moderate” at +13, down slightly from +14 in March 2019.

The one-point decline in the overall net satisfaction rating of Chief Justice Bersamin was due to increases of 24 points in Metro Manila and four points in Visayas, combined with decreases of 11 points in the rest of Luzon and four points in Mindanao.

Rural net satisfaction with the Chief Justice stayed moderate, down slightly from +16 in March to +15 in June, while net satisfaction also stayed moderate, down slightly from +12 in March to +11 in June.

Compared to March 2019, the June 2019 survey found single-digit changes in Bersamin’s net satisfaction rating across basic socio-demographics, except for the double-digit changes among 18-24 year olds (down from +30 to +11), 35-44 year olds (up from +10 to +29), and college graduates (down from +20 to +9).

The June 2019 survey also found 74 percent satisfied and 11 percent dissatisfied with the performance of Senate, 62 percent satisfied and 14 percent dissatisfied with the House of Representatives, 66 percent satisfied and 12 percent dissatisfied with the Supreme Court, and 64 percent satisfied and 13 percent dissatisfied with the Cabinet as a whole.

The resulting net satisfaction ratings were a “very good” +63 for the Senate, record-high “good” +48 for the House of Representatives, a record-high “very good” +54 for the Supreme Court, and a record-high “very good” +51 for the Cabinet as a whole.
