MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte continued to get “very good” or +56 net satisfaction, according to the 2018 first quarter survey by the Social Weather Survey (SWS).

According to SWS, this gives a net satisfaction rating of +56 classified as “very good” or two points below +58 recorded in the last quarter of 2017.
