Vice President Leni Robredo still enjoys a “good” net trust rating despite a two-point decline in it, the latest Social Weather Stations survey showed on Tuesday.
The survey, conducted from Sept. 15 to 23, indicated that 59 percent of those polled had “much trust” for Robredo while 21 percent had “little trust” in her and the rest or 20 percent were still “undecided.”
That gave her a net trust rating of +38, a two-point decline from +40 last June.
SWS said the decline in Robredo’s overall net trust rating was due to the declines in the Visayas and Balance Luzon, offsetting the increases in Mindanao and Metro Manila.
Robredo’s net trust increased from “moderate” to “good” in Mindanao while it stayed “moderate” in Metro Manila.
On the other hand, it fell from “very good” to “good” in the Visayas while remaining “good” in Balance Luzon.
SWS said among high school graduates, Robredo’s net trust rating was “good” at +37 (58 percent, much trust; 21 percent, little trust).
Her rating also remained “good” among elementary graduates at +42 (62 percent, much trust; 20 percent, little trust), SWS said.
Meanwhile, Robredo’s rating was still at “moderate” among college graduates at +23 (50 percent, much trust; 27 percent, little trust).
On the other hand, it declined from “very good” to “good” among non-elementary students at +43 (62 percent, much trust; 19 percent, little trust).
The SWS survey was conducted using face-to-face interviews of 1,500 adults (18 years old and above) nationwide: 600 in Balance Luzon and 300 each in Metro Manila, the Visayas and Mindanao, with sampling error margins of ±3% for national percentages, ±4 percent for Balance Luzon and ±6 percent each for Metro Manila, the Visayas and Mindanao).
The SWS survey question on public trust in the Vice President was non-commissioned.
On Oct. 16, Robredo’s net satisfaction rating was also “good” at +32, in which 57 percent were satisfied with her performance while 23 percent were dissatisfied.
