MANILA – Vice President Leni Robredo received a ''good'' net satisfaction score three months after assuming power, according to the latest survey of Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The September 24 to 27 survey, first published by BusinessWorld, showed that 65% of the respondents were satisfied with Robredo's performance and 16% dissatisfied, resulting in a net satisfaction score of +49 or "good". Eighteen percent of the respondents were undecided.

The SWS classifies net satisfaction ratings of +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."

President Rodrigo Duterte earned a net satisfaction rating of +64 or "very good” in the same survey.

Senate President Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III got a net satisfaction score of +37 or "good" (54% satisfied, 17% dissatisfied, and 26% undecided).

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez got a "moderate" +22 net satisfaction score (41% satisfied, 19% dissatisfied, and 32% undecided).

Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, meanwhile, got a net satisfaction score of +26 or "moderate" (44% satisfied, 18% dissatisfied, and 31% undecided).

SWS noted that Sereno’s September 2016 net satisfaction score, which is 9 percentage points higher than the +17 (moderate) she logged in June survey, is a personal record-high.

The survey, which involved face-to-face interviews with 1,200 adults nationwide, has a sampling error of 3 percentage points for nationwide results and 6 percentage points each for Metro Manila, "Balance of Luzon," Visayas and Mindanao.
