MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte’s net satisfaction rating hit a new record high in the fourth quarter of last year, registering an “excellent” +72, according to a survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The poll, taken from Dec. 13 to 16, 2019, showed 82 percent of adult Filipinos satisfied and 10 percent dissatisfied with the performance of Duterte.

The remaining eight percent were undecided about the matter.

His latest net satisfaction rating was seven points above the very good +65 registered in September 2019, and a new personal record that surpassed the previous record of “very good” +68 in June 2019.

Public satisfaction with Duterte rose in almost all geographical areas, the SWS said. 

His net satisfaction hit a new record +66 in balance Luzon in December 2019, up by 12 points from +54 in September 2019. Both ratings are considered “very good.”

It stayed excellent in the Visayas, at a new record +79 in December, up from +75 in September. 

It remained very good +66 in Metro Manila from September 2019 to December 2019.

By socio-economic class, Duterte’s net satisfaction rating rose from very good to excellent among class E, at +71 in December 2019 from +57 in September 2019. 

It also improved from very good to excellent in class D or the masa, at +72 in December from +66 in September.

It stayed excellent in class ABC, at +76 in December, up by six points from +70 in September. 

The December 2019 survey also found 52 percent of adult Filipinos who expect the President to fulfill “all or nearly all/most” of his promises.

It showed 72 percent of Filipinos who said they are worried about Duterte’s health.

This was similar to June 2019 when 74 percent were worried about the President’s health. 

Those worried about Duterte’s health remained high in Mindanao at 77 percent, followed by the Visayas at 75 percent, Metro Manila at 73 percent and balance Luzon at 69 percent. 

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