The nationwide survey conducted from March 23 to 27 with 1,200 respondents also registered lower satisfaction ratings for Vice President Leni Robredo and Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, both down by eight points but remained “good” under SWS qualifications.

SWS found 57 percent satisfied and 23 percent dissatisfied with the performance of Robredo, 57 percent satisfied and 16 percent dissatisfied with Pimentel, 31 percent satisfied and 29 percent dissatisfied with Alvarez, and 29 percent satisfied and 37 percent dissatisfied with Sereno.

The resulting net satisfaction ratings (percent satisfied minus percent dissatisfied) were “good” for both Robredo (+34) and Pimentel (+41), and “neutral” for both Alvarez (+1) and Sereno (-7).

SWS terminology for net satisfaction ratings are translated as follows: +70 and above as “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;” and -70 and below “execrable.”

Robredo’s net satisfaction rating is down by eight points from +42 (63 percent satisfied, 21 percent dissatisfied) in December 2017.

SWS attributed the decline in the Vice President’s satisfaction rating to the decreases of 21 points in Mindanao (+26), eight points in Visayas (+47), and four points in rest of Luzon (+38), combined with a one-point increase in Metro Manila (+16).

Meanwhile, the eight-point decline in Pimentel’s net satisfaction rating was due to decreases of 24 points in Mindanao (+37), 10 points in Visayas (+46), and two points in rest of Luzon (+37), combined with a two-point increase in Metro Manila (+51).

As regards Alvarez’s +1 net satisfaction rating, SWS pointed out that this is seven points below his previous record-low of neutral +8 in September 2017.

The 13-point decline in Alvarez’s overall net satisfaction rating was due to decreases of 28 points in Mindanao (-2), 12 points in Visayas (+7), and 10 points in rest of Luzon (-1), combined with a three-point increase in Metro Manila (+8).

SWS pointed out that the Chief Justice’s net rating stayed “neutral” but had a double-digit decline by 13 points from +6 in December 2017.

This is six points below her previous record-low of neutral -1 in December, 2015.

The decline in Sereno’s overall net satisfaction rating was due to decreases of 27 points in Mindanao (-22), 13 points in Visayas (-1), 11 points in rest of Luzon -2), and three points in Metro Manila (-10).
