Duterte’s trust rating recovers

06 November 2018

After previous surveys showed declines, the third quarter (June to September) trust rating of President Duterte rebounded by five points, the latest survey conducted by Social Weather Stations (SWS) said.

The survey, conducted from Sept. 15 to 23 with the results released yesterday, revealed that 74 percent of adult Filipinos have much trust in the President.

Twelve percent said they had little trust in Duterte, while the remaining 14 percent were undecided.

This gave the President a net trust rating of “very good” +62, five points higher than the “very good” +57 (70 percent much trust, 13 percent little trust) that he obtained in June.

It was also the first time that Duterte’s trust rating improved this year, following a 10-point decline to “very good” +65 (76 percent much trust, 10 percent little trust, rounded off) in March and another eight-point drop to +57 in June.

Throughout his presidency, SWS said Duterte has an average net trust rating of +68 (78 percent much trust, 12 percent little trust).

The net trust rating is the rounded off difference between those who said they have much trust and have little trust with the President.

SWS classifies net trust ratings of at least +70 as “excellent”; +50 to +69 as “very “good”; +30 to +49 as “good”; +10 to +29 as “moderate”; +9 to -9 as “neutral”; -10 to -29 as “poor”; -30 to -49 as “bad”; -50 to -69 as “very bad”; and -70 and below as “execrable.”

According to SWS, the five-point increase in Duterte’s overall net trust rating was due to increases in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, combined with steady scores in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Net trust in Duterte rose by nine points and one grade in Metro Manila, from “good” +42 in June to “very good” +51 in September.

It also increased 10 points in the rest of Luzon, from “very good” +50 to “very good” +60.

It stayed at “good” +49 in the Visayas, while slightly dropped from “excellent” +88 to “excellent” +86 in Mindanao.

SWS said Duterte has “very” good net trust ratings across all educational levels.

The survey had 1,500 respondents and an error margin of +/- three percent for national percentages.
