MANILA – A poll recently conducted by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed that Vice President Jejomar Binay’s net satisfaction fell to 52, the lowest he got since he assumed office in 2010. Despite the decline, Binay still continues to be top performer among government officials.
Binay’s net satisfaction score declined by 15 points to 52 (70 percent satisfied, 17 percent dissatisfied) from 67 (78 percent satisfied, 11 percent dissatisfied) in the second quarter.
This is also lower than his previous score of “very good” 57 in November 2010.
Despite this, Binay expressed gratitude for the ratings.
According to his political affairs spokesman Jonvic Remulla, Binay is still satisfied given that 70 percent of Filipinos are contented with his performance.
“The numbers are surprising. Despite the toxic atmosphere brought about by the kangaroo court of the Senate and the incessant attacks by political detractors, he still outperforms the rest of the field. It goes to show that it’s hard to put a good man down,” Remulla said.
He added that the ratings continue to inspire Binay to do his best in his duties.
