Zubiri, Romualdez post slight increases in satisfaction, trust rating

In his final term as Senate President, Tangere said Juan Miguel Zubiri saw a marginal 1 percent increase in both his satisfaction (43 percent) and trust ratings (54 percent).

However, dissatisfaction rose by 7 percent, while distrust increased by 2 percent during the same survey period.

Fifty-one percent of the respondents attributed the former Senate President’s ouster to the proposed economic Charter change or amendments to the economic provisions in the 1987 Constitution.

Tangere also found that 59 percent of respondents trust that Senator Francis Escudero can fulfill his new role as the new Senate President.

Meanwhile, Tangere said Speaker Martin Romualdez experienced notable improvements in satisfaction (43 percent) and trust (54 percent) ratings for May, with a 2 percent increase in both compared to March.

The increase in his ratings was particularly pronounced in the Northern Luzon, Central Luzon, and Eastern Visayas regions.

However, among Mindanao respondents and the upper and middle-income classes, distrust and dissatisfaction levels were relatively higher.

Tangere also found that while Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo’s awareness and familiarity levels saw minimal change, there was a notable improvement in his trust rating, attributed to improved ratings in Southern Luzon and Metro Manila.

Tangere conducted its survey on trust and satisfaction ratings of top Philippine government officials through a mobile-based respondent application, with a sample size of 2,000 participants.

The survey has a margin of error of +/-2.2 percent at a 95 percent confidence level, utilizing a stratified random sampling or quota-based sampling method.

The respondents were distributed across the Philippines as follows: 12 percent from the National Capital Region, 23 percent from Northern Luzon, 22 percent from Southern Luzon, 20 percent from Visayas, and 23 percent from Mindanao.
