The pollster said based on the survey held from June 27 to 30, Aquino’s public satisfaction rating fell 20 points in the second quarter of the year.

The SWS said 55 percent of respondents were satisfied with Aquino’s performance, while 30 percent were not, for a “moderate” +25. This was a 20-point drop from the President’s +45 score in March.

The survey also found that 29 percent of the respondents believe the President will be successful, while 21 percent disagree and 50 percent say “it is too early to tell,” putting Aquino’s net expectation score at +8, down 19 points from last year’s +27.

Aquino’s score hit record lows in all areas. It stayed “good” in the Visayas but was down 10 points to +39, fell by one grade each to a “good” +40 (down 15 points) in Mindanao and to a “moderate” +16 (down 25 points) in Balance Luzon, and plunged by two grades to a “neutral” +6 (down 27 points) in Metro Manila.

His rural net satisfaction also stayed “good” but was down 14 points to +35. In urban areas, the President’s score fell to a “moderate” +15 (down 26 points).

Expectations that Aquino will be a successful President also fell in all areas, the SWS survey found. He scored a new low of -7, down by 21 points. In Balance Luzon, it fell 24 points to +3, declined by 22 points to +12 in the Visayas and by eight points to +22 in Mindanao.

Among the respondents who said Aquino will be a successful President, those satisfied with his performance fell to 82 percent from 91 percent while the dissatisfied rose to 10 percent from 4 percent, lowering his net satisfaction rating in this category by 16 points to a still “excellent” +71.

In the “too early to tell” camp, satisfaction was down to 49 percent from 71 percent while dissatisfaction rose to 31 percent from 14 percent, bringing the President’s net score 39 points down to a “moderate” +18. Last year it was a “very good” +57.

Among those claiming that he will be an unsuccessful President, satisfaction fell to 30 percent from 49 percent and dissatisfaction rose to 56 percent from 30 percent, bringing his net rating down 46 points to a “poor” -26 from the “moderate” +20 recorded a year ago.

The June survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults in Metro Manila, the Balance of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

    ang ratings na yan hindi pa rin totoo. kasi kung titingnan mo ang reaction ng mga pinoys lalo na ng mahihirap na lalong dumami sa panahon ni ABNoy hindi nga nila maintindihan kung ano ang PDAF at DAP. ang gusto lang nilang malaman kung bakit sa ganda na daw ng ekonomiya naghihirap pa rin sila? saan ka makakita ng magandang ekonomiya na ang lahat ay tumaas maliban sa kita ng pangkaraniwang naghahanap buhay at mga buhok ng abnormal na presidente at budget secretary na yan. kaya sa admnistrasyon na to wala na tayong aasahan kung hindi lalo lang maghihirap ang mahirap at ang kakauting mayayaman ay lalo lang yayaman!!!

    But he still has a positive satisfaction rating–which means a majority of the people would probably agree with him if he declares martial law or emergency rule and the Congress gives him the concurrence required by the Constitution.

  3. Naku huwag kayo maniwala dyan sa SWS na yan, tingin ko mas mababa pa dyan ang rating ni PNOY. Tanung nyo daw kung sino nagpakuha ng rating. S W S Bumenta na yan.

  4. Again, the SWS is still giving King of DAP PNoy more credit than he deserves. Surely the figures are still bloated, maybe to soften his dissatisfaction a little bit. The results should all be negative. PNoy has not done anything good for the citizens of this country, rather he has placed the ordinary man and woman into more misery.

  5. Mr.President don’t worry about polls this goes up and down. Continue what you are doing, you are doing great. You are the only President who has the guts to run after these corrupt officials. Be careful, these people that work for you, might be also be involved in corruption. You must now consider your successor for the 2016, election. I hope you will select somebody who is fair, with strong character, scrupulous , incorruptible the like of Mayor Duterte of Davao City, and you present ombudsman, will do a great job, and will less likely pardon anybody in jail for plunder.

    >>> Nag press release na naman ang mga Surveys company.
    Start of conditioning the mentallity of the electorate or voters…2 years ahead. Talaga namannnnnnn. Ang tanong sino nagsponsor nitong gma ginagawang surveying ?
    For transparency and accountalbility rin…DAPAT ILATHALA NG MGA SURVEY COMPANY KUNG SINU-SINO AT ANU-ANONG GRUPO ANG NAGPAPAGAWA O NAGBABAYAD SA KANILA NG PAG-SURVEY. Alangan naman wala silang bayad, saan sila kukuha na pasweldo sa mga surveyor nila. Maliban na lamang pasweldo sila ng mga Partido Pulitika o Family Clan ng pulitiko.
    >>>Sadyang si Binay ang natural na lulutang sa survey. lahat na may potential na kumandidato sa higher position sa 2016 ay pinipilay o sinisira ang mga reputasyon. Kaya lahat na nangyayari sa ngayon sa TOTOO LANG HINDI SI MAR ROXAS ANG MAKIKINABANG KUNDI SI NOGNOG BINAY. DAHIL SA NANGYAYARI BINIBIGYAN NI NGUYNGOY COJUANGCO-AQUINO 3 SI NOGNOG BINAY NA TUWID NA LANDAS PATUNGO SA MALAKANYANG.
    Kaya dapat si Mar Roxas MAG-ISIP ISIP MABUTI MULA NGAYON. MALIBAN NA LAMANG NAIS NIYA MASAMPAL MULI NG MGA CONJUANGCO -AQUINO CLAN TULAD NANG NAKARAAN NATIONAL ELECTION , NA-TRAYDOR SIYA.
    Remember Araneta-Roxas clan are also have a businesses same thing to Cojuangco-Aquino clan. And that Nguyngoy clan had the blood, mentality and attitude of a Chinese and aside being COLLABORATOR DURING JAPANESE OCCUPATION. That is the real bottom line of this situation now.
