Three out of four adult Filipinos believe the country is moving in the “right direction,” according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey released October 25 2018 .

The Third Quarter 2018 SWS survey, conducted from September 15 to 23, found 75 percent of its respondents saying the country is in the right direction. Meanwhile, 22 percent think the opposite, saying the country is in the wrong direction. The remaining 3 percent had no an answer .


More people believe the country is headed the right way, as the current percentage score is 5 points above the 70 percent SWS recorded in June 2018.

However, President Rodrigo Duterte’s net trust rating has improved, rising five points from +57 in June to +62 in the latest study by pollster Social Weather Stations (SWS).

In the survey conducted from September 15 to 23, 74 percent of adult Filipinos said they have much trust, 14 percent remain undecided, and 12 percent said they have little trust in Duterte.


Duterte’s net trust rating had dropped to 57 percent in the second quarter, an eight-point decline from his 65 percent net trust score last March.
The five-point increase in Duterte’s overall net trust rating was due to the increase in the scores in Metro Manila and Balance Luzon, combined with steady scores in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Conducted starting mid-September, the survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,500 adults (18 years old and above) nationwide; 600 in Balance Luzon, and 300 each for Metro Manila, Visayas, and Mindanao.
