Binay rating down 9 points

VICE President Jejomar Binay will continue to work doubly hard to fulfill the mandate even though his public satisfaction rating went down by 9 percentage points in the latest survey conducted by the Social Weather Stations.

But Binay’s spokesperson Rico Quicho said that while the survey showed a decline in his previous rating, Binay’s approval rating remained good at +33 with 58 percent of respondents saying they are satisfied with the vice president’s work against 25 percent dissatisfied.

“The vice president will continue with his provincial trips to directly talk with and listen to the people, and offer them a decisive, effective and inclusive governance,” he said.

He said the results is proof of the vice president’s unwavering fight against poverty which he has started in Makati when he was still mayor of the city,” Quicho said.

“He will continue to present his platform that is based on uplifting the lives of the people and ensuring that the ineptness and iniquities displayed by the present administration will cease,” Quicho added.

The survey, with sampling error margins of ±3 points for national percentages, was conducted on   Sept. 2 to 5 among 1,200 adults nationwide.

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