Palace unperturbed on Duterte’s ratings drop

by | News

Malacañang said Wednesday, July 11, said the Duterte administration is not driven by surveys amid the slide of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s net satisfaction ratings in the latest survey conducted by Social Weather Stations (SWS).

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that Duterte’s drop in his net satisfaction rating does not raise any concern for the administration.

“Hindi naman talaga survey-driven ang ating Presidente,” Roque said in a radio interview.

Roque also cited survey results during the beginning of 2016 presidential campaign where Duterte trailed behind his opponents.

“Kung maalala ninyo, pati sa eleksyon, eh sa simula naman walang pag-asa na maging Presidente ang ating Pangulo kung paniniwalaan iyong mga surveys na mga nauna,” Roque explained.

Roque added that despite Duterte’s fall from ‘very good’ to ‘good’ performance, his +45 rating is still the highest among his three predecessors – former Presidents Joseph Estrada, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, and Benigno Aquino III.

Estrada received a +5 in March 2000 while Macapagal-Arroyo received +6 in November 2002. Aquino, meanwhile, score +42 in May 2012.

Roque also reiterated that Duterte’s focus is not on his survey ratings but on his goal to remove corruption and drugs in the country.

Lowest rating so far

According to the said survey, the president received a score of +45, which is a 11-point decline from the +56 score he received in March.

It showed that 65 percent of the respondents are satisfied with his performance, which is 5 points lower from the last survey. Twenty percent, however, said they are dissatisfied.

Based on the SWS scale, Duterte’s score has dropped from ‘very good’ to ‘good’. His current rating surpassed his previous personal low which was a score of +48 in September 2017.
