THE satisfaction rating of top government officials and some institutions slightly dropped in the recent survey conducted by poll firm Social Weather Stations (SWS) but Vice President Jejomar Binay got the highest rating.
Only Binay got a “very good’ satisfaction rating, while Senate President Franklin Drilon, speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. and Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno got “good” and “moderate” ratings.
The SWS survey held in the last quarter of 2013 showed Binay’s net satisfaction rating falling to +62, down from the +69 he got in September.
According to the SWS survey posted on Monday in the Business World website, the +62 rating placed Binay’s satisfaction within “very good” territory.
Binay said this is the seventh “very good” rating he got since he assumed office in 2010.
He thanked those who continue to trust him and appreciate the service he renders as Vice President, presidential adviser on overseas Filipino workers’ concerns and as head of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council.
“Your confidence and faith in what I do inspire me more to give my best for our people,” Binay said.
Meanwhile, the SWS survey said Drilon’s ratings registered a big drop, falling from “good” in his September score to “moderate” +25 with 52-percent satisfied and 26-percent dissatisfied with his performance.
Belmonte’s satisfaction rating remained at the “moderate” territory with a net satisfaction rating of +16 with 41-percent satisfied and 25-percent dissatisfied, two points below his September score.
Sereno’s ratings fell a point to +16 with 40-percent satisfied and 25-percent dissatisfied, also staying in the “moderate” territory.
Among the government institutions whose ratings also fell in the latest SWS survey are the Senate, House of Representatives and Supreme Court.
The Senate’s ratings fell three points, from +36 in September to +33, with 57-percent satisfied and 24-percent dissatisfied. However, this was still in “good” territory.
The satisfaction ratings for the House of Representatives fell to +26 with 51-percent satisfied and 24-percent dissatisfied, down a point from September, which falls in moderate territory.
The Supreme Court registered a five-point decline to +36 with 57-percent satisfied and 22-percent dissatisfied, considered as “good.”
Meanwhile, the Cabinet remained in “moderate” territory despite a seven-point decline from September to +20 with 46-percent satisfied and 26-percent dissatisfied.
The December 2013 survey used face-to-face interviews with 1,550 adult Filipino respondents.
