Why Binay doubts satisfaction survey results

His "very good" satisfaction score from the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) poll has failed to soften Vice President Jejomar Binay's opinion about political surveys.

Binay's office on Monday said the new SWS survey was puzzling, as it showed "divergent results" from that of Pulse Asia, which conducted another survey on the same period.

"While SWS showed a decline, the Pulse Asia survey showed an increase of 6 points in the Vice President's performance and trust rating," the statement read.
 
"Despite that, the Vice President remains grateful for his high approval ratings," it added.

SWS's March 19-22 poll of 1,200 respondents nationwide pegged Binay's rating at +62 in March, dropping from +70 in December 2012.
 
The rating is the difference between the 75 percent of Filipinos satisfied with Binay's performance and the 13 percent who are dissatisfied.

Binay, however, continued to top satisfaction for President Benigno Aquino III, who also got a "very good" score of +59 (74 percent satisfied, 15 percent dissatisfied).
 
"Since 2012, the Vice President's ratings ranged from very good to excellent. His work will continue regardless of survey results," Binay's office said.

Binay has always expressed doubt on the veracity of political surveys but he was earlier quoted as saying he believes surveys that show improvement in her daughter's performance in the senatorial race.
