MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo enjoyed a 15-point increase in her net satisfaction rating in the first quarter of the year, according to the latest survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

Meanwhile, the net satisfaction rating of Senate President Vicente Sotto III stayed at very good +61 (71 percent satisfied and 10 percent dissatisfied) in the first quarter.

In the case of Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, 29 percent were satisfied and 46 percent were dissatisfied with her performance, resulting in a net satisfaction score of “poor” -17.

Robredo attributed her improved net satisfaction rating to her office’s program to help the poor, Angat Buhay.

In an interview in Cagayan de Oro City, Robredo said the SWS poll “only means that our efforts are making a mark on the people.”

The Vice President said the 15-point increase in her net satisfaction score will inspire her and her team to continue to work harder in uplifting the lives of the poor.

The poll, taken from March 28 to 31, showed 63 percent Filipinos satisfied and 21 percent dissatisfied with Robredo’s performance, for a net satisfaction score of +42, classified by the SWS as “good.”

This was up by one grade from the “moderate” +27 she obtained in December 2018.

Robredo’s net satisfaction rating rose by 26 points in balance Luzon from moderate +20 to good +46 in March. It also went up to +65 in the Visayas from +48 previously.

In Mindanao, the Vice President’s net satisfaction rating rose by two points from +31 to +33. Her rating, however, dropped by two points in Metro Manila from +16 to +14.

By class, Robredo’s net satisfaction rating rose by three grades from neutral zero to very good +65 in class ABC.

It rose from moderate +26 to good +39 in class D, or the masa, while it increased to very good +50 from good +46 in class E.

Sotto grateful 

Sotto said he was gratified with the high ratings even as he credited his colleagues for the favorable marks obtained by the chamber.

He vowed to continue working hard and make sure that the Senate will be productive under his leadership. 

“I also acknowledge the cooperation of my peers that gave the Senate a very good satisfaction rating. Our people deserve nothing less but higher level of true public service,” Sotto told reporters. 

When asked whether the ratings were due to the Senate’s stand against insertions in the national budget, he said the favorable public perception “is largely because of the diligent work of the Senate as a whole.”

“It’s been that way even before the (pork barrel) issue with the House of Representatives,” Sotto said. 

Sotto’s satisfaction rating stayed very good, although up by three points, from +55 in December to +58 in March.

It also remained very good in balance Luzon, up by two points to +65 from +63.

It stayed at very good +60 in the Visayas between December 2018 and March 2019.

In Metro Manila, Sotto’s net satisfaction score remained very good despite dropping by 10 points from +67 in December to +57 in March.

By class, his net satisfaction score rose from good +46 to very good +57 in class ABC. It stayed at very good +62 in class D between December 2018 and March 2019.

It also stayed very good in class E, hardly moving from +61 in December to +60 in March.

In the case of Arroyo, her -17 poor rating was already a four-point improvement from her -21 net rating in December 2018.

Net satisfaction with the Speaker rose by nine points, although still considered as poor, in Mindanao from -22 in December to -13 in March.

It remained poor in the Visayas despite increasing by three points from -15 to -12. Likewise, Arroyo’s net satisfaction rating stayed poor in balance Luzon, from -17 to -14.

It stayed bad in Metro Manila from -36 in December to -39 in March.

Arroyo’s net satisfaction rating remained poor at -16 in class D, although up by six points from -22 in December.

It went down by 15 points in class ABC, from -10 to -25. – With Paolo Romero
