Record score for Aquino gov’t

Net rating at ‘very good’ +64 from Arroyo administration’s final ‘bad’ -45

PUBLIC SATISFACTION with the government has hit a new high, bouncing back from depths plumbed during former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s term and erasing a record set during the Estrada administration.

A new Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey, the results of which were made exclusive to BusinessWorld, had 73% of the respondents saying they were satisfied with the new government’s general performance versus the 9% who said otherwise.

This gave President Benigno S. C. Aquino III’s administration a “very good” net satisfaction rating of +64, beating the previous record of a “good” +36 notched in November 1998 during Joseph E. Estrada’s term.

The result also marked the reversal of a run of negative net scores — culminating in a record low -45 last March, classified by the SWS as “bad” — posted starting December 2007 by the Arroyo government.

The SWS qualified that its surveys of the national administration’s general performance began in 1989, three years into the term of the current president’s mother, Corazon C. Aquino, “and therefore no longer during her honeymoon period.”

Mr. Aquino is just five months into his six-year term.

A Palace spokesman said the results were welcome and gave assurances that the Aquino government remained committed to fulfilling expectations.
