SWS: Binay, top officials see satisfaction decline

Vice President Jejomar Binay and top officials saw a decline in their satisfaction ratings in March, according to a new survey by pollster Social Weather Stations.

The SWS survey, which was conducted March 19 to 22, also noted a decline in the satisfaction ratings of key government institutions.

But while Binay's score fell from "excellent" to "very good," it was still higher than President Benigno Aquino III's rating, the SWS noted in its survey, the results of which were posted Monday on its media partner BusinessWorld.

SWS ranks as excellent net satisfaction scores of +70 and above; very good: +50 to +69; good: +30 to +49; moderate: +10 to +29; neutral: +9 to -9; poor: -10 to -29; bad: -30 to -49; very bad: -50 to -69; and execrable: -70 and below.

Top officials

Binay's ratings plunged from an "excellent" +70 to a "very good" +62 (75 percent satisfied, 13 percent dissatisfied). This also ended his streak of eight “excellent” net ratings.

Yet, it remained higher than Aquino's “very good” satisfaction rating of +59 (74 percent satisfied, 15 percent dissatisfied). Aquino's +59 was a four-point improvement from December 2012.

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile's ratings fell 17 points but remained at “good” with +30 (53 percent satisfied, 24 percent dissatified).

House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. had a “moderate” score of +11 (37 percent satisfied, 25 percent dissatisfied), down four points from December.

Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno's rating fell to a “neutral” +9 (33 percent satisfied, 23 percent dissatisfied), a decline from the "moderate" +14 in December.

Institutions

The Senate saw its public satisfaction score fall six points from a "very good" +51 in December to a "good" +45 (63 percent satisfied, 18 percent dissatisfied).

The House of Representatives saw its satisfaction ratings drop two points to a “moderate” +29 (49 percent satisfied, 20 percent dissatisfied) from +31 (“good”).

On the other hand, the Supreme Court's satisfaction rating stayed in “good” territory at +34 (54 percent satisfied, 20 percent dissatisfied).

As for the Cabinet, its satisfaction rating remained at a “moderate” +23 (44 percent satisfied, 21 percent dissatisfied), down three points from December.

The SWS survey involved face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults nationwide. Error margins of ±3% for national and ±6% for area percentages applied to the survey. —KG, GMA News
