Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo saw a 7-point decline in her net satisfaction rating in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, along with Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
From +34 percent in September, Robredo’s rating was down to +27 percent in the survey conducted from December 16 to 19, 2018.
Of the 1,440 respondents surveyed, 53 percent said they were satisfied with the vice president’s performance, while 26 percent were dissatisfied.
This translated to a +27 net satisfaction rating in December, down from +34 in September.
The 7-point decline in the overall net satisfaction rating of Robredo was due to decreases of 15 points in Balance Luzon, 7 points in Metro Manila, and 3 points in Mindanao, combined with a 9-point increase in the Visayas.
Robredo’s net satisfaction rating fell from good to moderate in Balance Luzon, down by 15 points from +35 in September to +20 in December.

The vice president’s satisfaction rating stayed good in Mindanao, although down by 3 points from +34 in September to +31 in December.
It was also good in the Visayas, up by 9 points from +39 in September to +48 in December.
Meanwhile, the net satisfaction rating of Arroyo declined by 17 points to -21 in December from -4 in September.
The 17-point decline was due to decreases in all areas, especially in the Visayas.
Net satisfaction fell from neutral to poor in the Visayas, down by 23 points from +8 in September to -15 in December.
It fell from neutral to poor in Mindanao, down by 19 points from -3 in September to -22 in December.

On the other hand, Senate President Vicente Sotto 3rd had +55 net satisfaction rating, up by 6 points from September’s +61.
The 6-point rise was due to increases of 15 points in Metro Manila, 14 points in Mindanao, and 11 points in the Visayas, combined with a 2-point decline in Balance Luzon.
Sotto’s net satisfaction rating stayed very good in Metro Manila, up by 15 points from +52 in September to +67 in December.
