President Rodrigo Duterte’s trust ratings in the 3rd quarter of 2018 bounced back up to a “very good” +62 from dropping to
+57 in the 2nd quarter, the Social Weather Stations (SWS) said in its latest survey released on Saturday, October 27.
Results of the survey held from September 15 to 23 showed that 74% of adult Filipinos have much trust in
Duterte, while 14% are undecided and 12% have little trust.
“This gives a net trust rating of +62, classified by SWS as very good. This is a 5-point
increase from the very good +57 in June 2018,” the SWS said.
The survey was done through face-to-face interviews of 1,500 adults across the country.
Where the rise came from: Increased trust in Metro Manila and Luzon pulled up Duterte’s rating, according to SWS.
