Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 15) — Vice President Leni Robredo's net satisfaction rating has dropped from "good" to "moderate" at the tailend of 2018, an independent pollster reported.

A Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey conducted December 16 to 19 and released on Tuesday showed the Vice President's net satisfaction rating went down by seven points from +34 in the third quarter of 2018 to a "moderate" +27 in December.

Fifty-three percent of respondents said they were satisfied with Robredo's work, 26 percent said they were dissatisfied, while 20 percent were undecided.

The seven-point decline, according to SWS, was due to the losses of 15 points in Balance Luzon, seven points in Metro Manila, and three points in Mindanao. These statistics were then combined with Robredo's +9 satisfaction rating in the Visayas.

Robredo's net satisfaction rating also declined in all socio-demographic levels--  except among the age group of 18 to 24 years old.

House Speaker Gloria Arroyo posted the lowest satisfaction score among the top officials, falling by 17 points from a neutral -4 in September to a "poor" -21 in December.

Majority of the survey respondents meanwhile remained satisfied of the work done by Senate President Vicente "Tito" Sotto III as he gained a +61 net rating-up by six points from +55 in September.

Seventy-two percent said they were satisfied with Sotto's work in the fourth quarter, 11 percent expressed dissatisfaction, while 16 percent were undecided.

Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin, who has served for only less than a month when the survey was conducted, has a moderate overall satisfaction rating of +11.

In an earlier report, SWS said President Rodrigo Duterte's satisfaction ratings also went up by six points to 74 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018.

The survey had a ±2.6 percent error margin, and ±5 percent each for Balance Luzon, Metro Manila, the Visayas, and Mindanao.
