The Fourth Quarter 2018 Social Weather Survey, conducted on December 16-19, 2018, showed that a big majority (76%) of adult Filipinos were satisfied with the general performance of the Duterte Administration.
Fifteen percent were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, while 9% claimed dissatisfaction.
This result yielded a net satisfaction rating of +66, classified by the SWS as very good.
The survey company indicated that this is a 16-point increase from the +50 (65% satisfied, 15% dissatisfied) rating in September 2018.
Referred to by the SWS as the Duterte Administration’s Governance Report Card, the study showed that “of the 17 specific performance subjects rated, the Duterte Administration’s net satisfaction ratings were excellent on 2 subjects, very good on 6 subjects, good on 7 subjects, and moderate on 2 subjects.”
Results showed that the net satisfaction rating of the Duterte Administration was excellent on Promoting women’s rights (+71) and on Building and maintenance of public works (+70).
This result came at the height when several women’s groups had recently called President Rodrigo Duterte a misogynist.
The administration, on the other hand, was very good on helping the poor (+68), protecting human rights (+62), reconstructing Marawi City (+60), fighting terrorism (+55), transparency in government activities (+54), and deciding quickly (+50).
The government registered as “good” in fighting crimes (+44), reconciling with Muslim rebels (+43), eradicating graft and corruption (+42), defending Philippine sovereignty in the West Philippine Sea (+40), reconciling with communist rebels (+39), fulfilling commitments in international treaties (+39), and in foreign relations (+38).
The study, on the other hand, showed that Filipinos found the government’s performance a bit wanting on ensuring that no family will ever be hungry (+28) and on fighting inflation (+14). –Maris Federez
