MANILA – The public trust and approval ratings of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. improved in the fourth quarter of 2023, according to a survey released on Tuesday by the OCTA Research Group.
Results of the Dec. 10-14, 2023 "Tugon ng Masa" survey showed that Marcos scored a 76 percent trust rating and a 71 percent approval rating.
Marcos' trust score is 3 points higher compared to the 73 percent recorded in October 2023, while his performance rating is 6 points higher than the third quarter's 65 percent.
"While President Marcos Jr.'s trust ratings improved during the survey, this is within the margin of error. On the other hand, his performance ratings increased significantly compared to the 3rd quarter survey conducted in October 2023," OCTA said.
Only 9 percent disapproved of the work done by President Marcos, while only 8 percent distrust him.
Across major areas, the President's highest trust rating is in the Visayas at 79 percent, while his highest satisfaction rating is in Balance Luzon at 77 percent.
His lowest trust and approval ratings are recorded in Mindanao at 69 percent and 57 percent, respectively.
Vice President
Meanwhile, Vice President Sara Duterte obtained a trust rating of 77 percent, which is 2 points higher than the 75 percent recorded in October 2023.
Duterte got an approval score of 75 percent, up by 5 points from October 2023's 70 percent rating.
The Vice President's performance was disapproved by 7 percent, while only 5 percent distrust her.
Duterte received the highest trust and satisfaction ratings among those in Mindanao at 99 percent and 97 percent, respectively.
Duterte got her lowest ratings for both trust and satisfaction in Balance Luzon with 64 percent and 61 percent, respectively.
Other officials
For congressional leaders, Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri got a satisfaction rating of 60 percent and House Speaker Martin Romualdez obtained a 65 percent approval rating.
For trustworthiness, Zubiri posted a 59 percent rating, and Romualdez got a 64 percent score.
Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo received a satisfaction of 18 percent for his quarterly performance, and only 23 percent trust him.
The survey was conducted using face-to-face interviews with 1,200 respondents aged 18 years and above.
The survey has a +/-3 percent margin of error and a confidence level of 95 percent. (PNA)
