President Rodrigo Duterte received a new personal record-high satisfaction rating, with 80 percent of adult Filipinos satisfied with his performance compared to only 12 percent dissatisfied and 9 percent who are undecided, a new Social Weather Stations survey revealed Monday.
The Second Quarter 2019 Social Weather Survey showed gross satisfaction with the President rose by 1 point from 79% in March 2019, gross undecided rose by 1 point from 8%, and gross dissatisfaction fell by 1 point from 13%.
Net satisfaction rating was at +68, classified by SWS as "very good" and a new personal record-high for the President, surpassing the previous record of very good +66 in March 2019 and June 2017.
SWS said the 2-point rise in President Duterte's net satisfaction rating from March 2019 to June 2019 was due to an increase in Balance Luzon, offset by declines in Mindanao, the Visayas, and Metro Manila.
