Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 14) — A survey found more Filipinos satisfied with Vice President Leni Robredo's performance, with her latest net satisfaction rating almost matching that of President Rodrigo Duterte.

The results of the SWS survey, which interviewed 1,500 people nationwide from Sept. 23 to 27, showed Robredo's net satisfaction rating in September 2017 at 41, with 62 percent satisfied, 21 percent dissatisfied and 16 percent undecided.

Net satisfaction rating is computed by subtracting the number of people dissatisfied from the number of people satisfied.

Robredo's latest rating is up five points from the 36 (60 percent satisfied, 24 percent dissatisfied, 15 percent undecided) she got in June 2017.

Both numbers are in the "Good" classification, the third-highest in the private poll group's nine-parameter scale that ranges from "Excellent" to "Execrable."

The same survey also showed less Filipinos are satisfied with Duterte's performance, with his September 2017 net satisfaction rating dropping 18 points to 48 ("Good") from his 66 rating ("Very Good") in June 2017.

The SWS said Robredo's five-point improvement was due to a seven-point increase in Luzon (except Metro Manila) and Visayas, remaining respectively at "Good" and "Very Good," and a 3-point increase in Metro Manila, staying at "Moderate."

Meanwhile, her satisfaction rating in Mindanao dropped by a point, staying at "Good"

In terms of socioeconomic class, Robredo got a 13-point increase in classes ABC and 6-point increase in Class D, with her satisfaction rating in these classes staying at "Moderate" and "Good," respectively.

However, her satisfaction among the poorest Filipinos in class E went down five points, but still remained "Very Good."

Meanwhile, the SWS said both leaders of Congress got record net satisfaction ratings for September 2017.

Senate President Koko Pimentel retained his "Good" rating, getting a "personal high" of 46, up 13 points from his 33 in June 2017.

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez's rating fell from "Moderate" to "Neutral" to a "personal low" of 8, down by eight points from his 16 in June 2017.

Finally, Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno's rating also went down from "Moderate" to "Neutral," dropping 12 points from 21 to 9.
