MANILA - More Filipinos were satisfied with the performance of Vice President Leni Robredo in the third quarter of 2019, a Social Weather Stations survey showed Wednesday.

Robredo's rating climbed back to a "good" +33 in September, a 5-point increase from her "moderate" +28 rating in June.

The 5-point increase came from all areas covered in the Philippines, especially in Mindanao, where Robredo's satisfaction rating increased 17 points from a "moderate" +15 in June to a "good" +32 in September.

More than half or 56 percent out of 1,800 Filipinos said they were satisfied with the Vice President's performance, while 23 percent said they were dissatisfied.

Earlier this month, SWS said President Rodrigo Duterte maintained his "very good" satisfaction rating despite a slight decline in the third quarter.

Duterte received a net satisfaction rating of +65, down by 3 points from his personal record-high +68 recorded in the previous quarter.


House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, meanwhile, received a "good" +49 first net satisfaction rating since he assumed his role at the House of Representatives.

Satisfaction at Cayetano's performance was highest in the Visayas at a "very good" +57, followed by Mindanao at "very good" +52, Metro Manila at "good" +48 and Balance Luzon at "good" +45.

The survey found 64 percent of Filipinos were satisfied with Cayetano's performance while 14 percent were dissatisfied.

Senate President Vicente "Tito" Sotto III and Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin kept their "very good" and "moderate" ratings, receiving +61 and +16, respectively.

The public's perception of the Senate remained "very good" at +56, while the House of Representatives and Supreme Court received "good" +43 and "very good" +41, respectively.

The third quarter poll, conducted from September 27 to 30, has a margin of error of ±2.3 percent for national percentages, ±4 percent each for Balance Luzon and Mindanao, and ±6 each for Metro Manila and Visayas.
