MANILA, Oct 13 (Mabuhay) — The net satisfaction rating for Vice President Leni Robredo is higher in the third quarter 2017 Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

The net satisfaction rating of Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III is also higher.

Meanwhile, the ratings for House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno have dropped.

In the latest survey that was conducted from Sept. 23 to 27, Robredo gained +41 or “Good” satisfaction rating which is higher than the +36 rating she got in the second quarter SWS survey.

There are 1,500 respondents in the latest survey with a margin of error of ±2.5 percent.

The survey found 62 percent satisfied and 21 percent dissatisfied with the performance of the Vice-President.

Based on the SWS report posted on its website, the 5-point rise in the overall net satisfaction rating of Vice-Pres. Robredo was due to increases of 7 points in Balance Luzon, 7 points in the Visayas, and 3 points in Metro Manila, combined with a steady score in Mindanao.

It stayed very good in the Visayas, at +60 in September, up by 7 points from +53 in June.
