Malacañang downplays drop in Aquino satisfaction rating


President Aquino is not affected on the latest Social Weather Station (SWS) survey that is not just a dip in the public perception but a precarious drop in satisfaction ratings, said Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. yesterday.
“The President has always maintained that he will always do right by the people and fulfill his sworn mandate regardless of the survey ratings,” Coloma said.
Coloma said that Aquino and “the administration remain focused on achieving our priority programs in the Philippine Development Plan.”
Coloma explained they have not yet seen the recent negative result of the SWS survey.
“Well, in the first place, we have not seen those ratings. But I stated our position that we remain focused on the government’s priority programs and that the President has always maintained that he will fulfill his mandate, he will do what he believes is right by our people, and the numbers are advisory in character,” Coloma said.
Coloma still expressed confidence that: “The record would show that, for the past three years, the President has maintained a consistently high performance approval and trust ratings. So we are reasonably confident that in time the people will understand what government is doing and will be able to assess fairly the performance of their President and government.”
On the SWS survey result, which was conducted from Sept. 20 to 23 and published first in the broadsheet BusinessWorld, the trust rating for Aquino showed a so low mark, that is from +64 in June down to +49 only.
Coloma said that the issue had already been tackled in the past briefings.
Coloma said it would be better to await for the result of the fourth quarter survey.
“Maybe, it is more relevant to wait on their fourth quarter ratings,” Coloma said.
Coloma said that on the sliding of the net satisfaction rating, that went down from +64 to +49, he could still recall having posed the same question to Dr. Mahar Mangahas of SWS.
Coloma said that Mangahas replied to him that the survey was not an “absolute amount” but should instead look into the “general trend.”
Coloma said the rating of +49 that could even be lowered to +42, would not show a negative rating as it showed of a bigger percent of the people who expressed their satisfaction.
Meanwhile, Vice President Jejomar Binay remains grateful for his “very good” satisfaction ratings in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, and acknowledged the people’s high expectations of government officials.
He said the survey should be seen as a “wake-up call” for top government officials whose rating all declined.
“We cannot really have a 100 percent accurate survey but I have no issue with the SWS result. If we have shortcomings, then it’s a wake up call,” he said.
The survey showed that 78 percent of the respondents were satisfied with Binay’s performance, while 10 percent were dissatisfied.
This brings the Vice President’s net satisfaction rating to “very good” (+69) which is seven points below the +76 (83 percent satisfied, 7 percent dissatisfied) or “excellent” rating he received in June.
“The ratings for all the top government officials went down,” he said, referring to the drop in the ratings of President Aquino, Senate President Franklin Drilon, Speaker Sonny Belmonte and Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno.
Binay posted the highest among the country’s top officials in the SWS survey.
Binay also said he believes the satisfaction ratings of President Aquino directly affects the ratings of those in the executive department.
“If you look at the previous surveys, you will notice that if the ratings of the President drop, our ratings also drop. This is because it reflects on the executive department,” he said.

    http://www.osuwrfc.com/coach-outlet/ It only real weakness is absolutely the plot simply ties together with the final two episodes within an abrupt way, however it makes you cheer because heroes AND villains, each and every character of Cosmos House is likeable in their own way therefore, you cannot hate them.The first one was by Majid Khan, who made 109 against England at Trent Bridge in 1974, taking Pakistan to victory after England had scored 244 for 4, which in turn David Lloyd made 116. http://www.boogiestudio.com/blog/wp-content/michael-kors-outlet-online.html http://www.osuwrfc.com/coach-outlet/ Typically, Canadians own a phone more than others around the world, mostly because our carriers ask people to sign threeyear contracts family pet subsidized hardware prices.Also, 1 of the gain at a discounted price is subject to ordinary income rates. http://www.boogiestudio.com/blog/wp-content/michael-kors-outlet-online.html

    http://nianfans.com/botas-ugg-colombia.html The Boise State men basketball team is home throughout its nonconference schedule, starting tomorrow night against North park. There are some items over the Broncos agenda when they prepare for WAC play, including improved shooting from threepoint land. BSU would rather launch but is hitting only 30 percent from after dark arc, magnified by way of 3for14 night at Idaho State Wednesday.
    Of course Going the Happy Hunters, currently Raiders. Basketball was fun ahead of class system. Attendance had fallen but is not to the levels it offers nowwhen was another time the IHSAA announced attendance figures for sectionals? Southridge's sectional has become the top five, or else the top,sectionals inside the state and attempt to has been.
