MANILA, Philippines - Public satisfaction with President Aquino continued to improve in the third quarter of the year, the Social Weather Stations (SWS) said in its latest report.

Aquino’s net satisfaction rating went up by 11 points to 41 (64 percent satisfied minus 22 percent dissatisfied) in September from 30 (57 percent satisfied minus 27 percent dissatisfied) in June.

The SWS poll, conducted from Sept. 2 to 5, used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults nationwide.

Aquino’s satisfaction rating hit an all-time low of 11 in the first quarter of 2015 amid the relentless criticism of the government’s handling of the Jan. 25 Mamasapano bloodbath.

The SWS attributed the 11-point increase in overall net satisfaction rating of Aquino to the 16 points improvement in “balance Luzon,” 15 points in the Visayas and 10 points in Metro Manila, combined with a steady score in Mindanao.

The President’s net satisfaction remained “good” in “balance Luzon” at 46 (67 percent satisfied, 21 percent dissatisfied) this month, up by 16 points from 30 (56 percent satisfied, 26 percent dissatisfied) in the second quarter.
