VP Robredo’s trust rating goes new low

Though most Filipinos continue to express their confidence to Vice President Leni Robredo it is ironical to the results of recently concluded Social Weather Stations survey for her net trust ratings.


Nearly a year after she was seated into her office, her ratings continue to decline in all regions especially in Mindanao.

During the first quarter 2017 SWS Survey conducted among 1,200 adults respondents nationwide, a total of 55 percent of Filipinos came out to have much trust in Robredo while 25 percent said they had a minima trust. On the other hand, the remaining 20% remained undecided.

Robredo’s +30 net trust rating, however, was 15 points lower than the +45 she recorded in December 2016.

SWS showed the 15-point decline to the 32-point drop in Mindanao and 10-point fall in Metro Manila, Balance of Luzon and Visayas.

Robredo’s ratings suffered most in Mindanao, where it fell by two grades from very good (+52) to moderate +20.

Meanwhile, her ratings remained very good in the Visayas, although it went down by 10 points from +50 to + 40 which concluded 59 percent much trust and 19 percent little trust by March 2017.

Her trust rating fell by one grade from good to moderate in Metro Manila, down by 10 points from +30 in December to +20 in March.

The satisfaction of public with Robredo’s performance as vice president was higher among those with much trust in her.

The said survey was conducted from March 25 to 28.
