President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration maintained a “very good” net satisfaction rating in the fourth quarter of 2018, results of the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed.
The net satisfaction rating of the Duterte Administration increased by 16 points from +50 in September 2018 to +66 in December 2018, according to the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey. This means that 76% of Filipinos are satisfied with the performance of the Administration.
The Palace considers this increase in satisfaction rating as a vote of public confidence and a demonstration of the people’s unshakeable trust to the present Administration, which the polling firm classified as “very good”.
We have noted that in the SWS Governance Report Card, the highest marks received by the Administration are on the following subjects: promoting women’s rights (+71); building and maintenance of public works (+70); helping the poor (+68); protecting human rights (+62) and reconstructing Marawi City (+60).
These figures are loud and clear repudiations of the critics and detractors of PRRD who have described him as misogynistic, anti-poor and anti-human rights, and who have taken turns in questioning the Build-Build-Build Infrastructure Program and lambasting the rehabilitation and reconstruction of Marawi. While the Administration never impelled the vocal minority from expressing their dissent, it is time they finally realize that a sizeable but silent majority has paid no attention to their endless tirades against PRRD and the Administration, as well as its policies, particularly with respect to the aforesaid matters.
As we go into the third year of the President’s term, the Filipinos can rest assured that we would not be lulled into complacency while we continue to roll out the programs and services he started in bringing a comfortable life for all under a peaceful and corrupt-free environment.
