MANILA, Philippines — Public satisfaction with President Duterte rose to a new record high in the second quarter of the year, according to the latest poll conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The survey, taken from June 22 to 26, found 80 percent of adult Filipinos satisfied and 12 percent dissatisfied with the performance of Duterte, for a net satisfaction score of “very good” +68.

The remaining nine percent of 1,200 respondents were undecided with regard to the President’s performance.

Duterte’s latest net satisfaction score surpassed the previous record of +66, also very good, in March 2019 and June 2017.

The two-point increase in Duterte’s net satisfaction rating from March 2019 to June 2019 was due to an increase in the rest of Luzon, offset by declines in Mindanao, the Visayas and Metro Manila, the SWS said.

His net satisfaction rating stayed very good in balance Luzon, at a new record high +65 (78 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied) in June, up by nine points from +56 (73 percent satisfied, 17 percent dissatisfied) in March. It also surpassed the previous record of very good +60 in December 2016.

It stayed excellent in Mindanao, at +81 (88 percent satisfied, eight percent dissatisfied), although down by seven points from the record-high +88 (92 percent satisfied, five percent dissatisfied).

Duterte’s rating remained very good in the Visayas, at +66 (77 percent satisfied, 12 percent dissatisfied) in June, although down by three points from +69 (81 percent satisfied, 12 percent dissatisfied) in March.

It also stayed very good in Metro Manila, at +59 (73 percent satisfied, 14 percent dissatisfied) in June, despite dropping by two points from +61 (76 percent satisfied, 14 percent dissatisfied) in March.

The SWS classifies net satisfaction ratings as +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”; -70 and below, “execrable.”

In urban areas, Duterte’s net satisfaction stayed very good, at +67 (79 percent satisfied, 12 percent dissatisfied) in June 2019, up by five points from +62 (77 percent satisfied, 14 percent dissatisfied) in March 2019.

His net satisfaction in rural areas also remained very good, at +68 (80 percent satisfied, 11 percent dissatisfied) in June, although down by one point from the record-high +69 (81 percent satisfied, 12 percent dissatisfied) in March.

By socio-economic class, the President’s net satisfaction rating stayed very good in class E, at a new record-high +68 (81 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied) in June 2019, up by 10 points from +58 (74 percent satisfied, 16 percent dissatisfied) in March 2019. This surpassed the previous record of very good +67 in June 2017.

It was still very good in class D or the masa, maintaining the record-high +68 in June (79 percent satisfied, 11 percent dissatisfied) from March (80 percent satisfied, 12 percent dissatisfied).
