President Rodrigo Duterte kept his “excellent” trust rating for a fourth consecutive quarter in a Social Weather Stations (SWS) opinion poll, with four-fifths of the respondents giving him the highest score in a survey that focuses on personality rather than policy.

Public trust ratings of President Duterte

Pollster SWS Social Weather Stations has been tracking trust ratings of Duterte since December 2015, when he signed up for a presidential election that he won six months later.

Eighty percent of the 1,200 Filipinos surveyed in the first quarter this year by SWS said they have “much trust” in the firebrand leader, a one percentage point drop from December.

Eleven percent said they were undecided and 10 percent have “little trust” in the former mayor from the southern Philippines.

The survey was conducted from March 25 to 28 and was released at the weekend. It did not ask respondents to give a reason for their ratings.

SWS differentiates trust ratings from satisfaction ratings. Trust gauges public sentiment about a personality while satisfaction is related to an individual’s performance related to his position or duty.
