The Social Weather Station (SWS) survey on Thursday, September 23 released three different surveys conducted in November 2020, May 2021, and June 2021.
In November 2020, Duterte received a record-high net satisfaction rating of +79.
Duterte’s net satisfaction rating, however, dropped to +62 in June 2021 as he serves his last year in office.
According to SWS fellow and political science professor Jorge Tigno during a webinar, the President’s high rating in November may be attributed to the falling trend of Covid-19 cases in the Philippines that time.
"I would situate that in that context. People were sensing that, okay, this is now starting to be over and we’re relieved this has happened and that we’re satisfied with what the government has done," said Tigno.
