“Neutral” zero rating in the first quarter is Aquino’s Public Satisfaction Rate in the Metro as per the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey. 43 percent respondents were satisfied while 44 percent were dissatisfied with Mr. Aquino’s performance, thus resulting to zero net satisfaction rating (satisfied minus dissatisfied).
Generally, 57 percent were satisfied with the Aquino’s performance as president while 30 percent were dissatisfied, resulting to a net satisfaction rating of +27 belonging to the “moderate” bracket instead of the previous good record. The big blow is the double-digit decline among classes ABC, from a net rating of “good” +44 in December to “moderate” +17 at the present time.
The people’s disappointment over the president’s so-called :Daang Matuwid” or straight path that is critisized by Binay-Gringo tandem would mean that his endorsements to any candidates this May 9, 2016 Election will be destructive to the endorsees. So when the news is out that Senator Grace Poe who’s running mate is Senator Chiz Escudero would now be backed by the Liberal Party instead of Roxas, it will be like a “kiss of death” for her!
