SWS: Rody trust rating falls but still ‘very good’

MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte’s net trust rating dropped by eight percentage points but remained in “very good” territory in the second quarter of the year, the Social Weather Stations (SWS) said in its latest survey.

The survey, conducted from June 27 to 30, found 70 percent of adult Filipinos expressing “much trust” in the President and 13 percent with “little trust” in him, resulting in a net trust score of +57.

The remaining 18 percent could not say whether or not they trust the President.

Duterte obtained a very good +65 net trust score in the March 2018 poll of SWS.

The eight-point decline in Duterte’s overall net trust rating from March to June 2018 was due to declines in the Visayas and Metro Manila, combined with steady scores in Mindanao and balance Luzon.

His trust rating fell by two grades in the Visayas, down by 21 points from excellent +70  (80 percent satisfied, 10 percent dissatisfied) in March to good +49 (68 percent satisfied, 19 percent dissatisfied) in June.

It also dropped by one grade from very good to good in Metro Manila, down by 20 points from +62 (74 percent much trust, 12 percent little trust) in March to +42 (61 percent satisfied, 19 percent dissatisfied) in June.

However, it remained excellent in Mindanao, the President’s bailiwick, hardly moving from +89 (92 percent much trust, three percent little trust) in March to +88 (90 percent much trust, three percent little trust) in June.

His trust rating likewise stayed very good in the rest of Luzon, although down by three points from +53 (66 percent much trust, 13 percent little trust) in March to +50 (62 percent much trust, 13 percent little trust) in June. 

The survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults, 18 years old and above, nationwide.

It has sampling error margins of plus or minus three percentage points for national percentages, and plus or minus six percentage points each for Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
