MANILA (Mabuhay) – Public satisfaction with Vice President Jejomar Binay, along with several government institutions, dipped in the second quarter of 2014, according to a new poll by Social Weather Stations.

Binay’s net rating fell to a “very good” +67, with 78 percent satisfied and 11 percent dissatisfied with his performance.

In a poll taken three months earlier, Binay had gotten an “excellent” +73 (82 percent satisfied, 9 percent dissatisfied).

Meantime, Senate President Franklin Drilon, House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr., and Chief Maria Justice Lourdes Sereno saw “marginal” improvements in their ratings.

Drilon’s net rating rose by three points to +20 (50 percent satisfied, 30 percent dissatisfied), still considered “moderate.”

Belmonte’s rating rose by three points to a “neutral” +2 (34 percent satisfied, 32 percent dissatisfied).

Sereno’s rating rose two points to a “neutral” +6 (36 percent satisfied, 30 percent dissatisfied).

SWS classified net satisfaction ratings of +70 and above as “excellent”; +50 to +69, “very good”; +30 to +49, “good”; +10 to +29, “moderate”; +9 to -9, “neutral”; -10 to -29, “poor”; -30 to -49, “bad”; -50 to -69, “very bad”; and -70 and below, “execrable.”

The SWS poll was taken from June 27 to 30, and used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 Filipinos nationwide. A ±3% error margin applied to the survey.

The Senate suffered a slightly larger drio of 14 points to a “moderate” +12 (46 percent satisfied, 34 percent dissatisfied).
