A email I received from SWS in the Socail Weather Stations media release discusses in detail the survey figures in my blog banner above- for the President’s ratings overall. The text explanation shows that while still in the minus eleven the Preisdents approval ratings have edged up.

[] ” … SWS 3rd quarter :

37% Satisfied / 48% Dissatisfied  with the performance of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, []

Women- are now less disatisfied.

(anything that make a woman less disastified is good thing afterall !:’)

In the media release the charts and figures are discussed in detail. I put up the charts via youttube.

As well as the data explained by SWS who I quote in full below:

Third Quarter 2006 Social Weather Survey:

NET SATISFACTION WITH PGMA INCHES UP TO -11

Social Weather Stations

 

The Third Quarter 2006 Social Weather Survey finds 37% Satisfied and 48% Dissatisfied with the performance of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, for an unfavorable Net Satisfaction Rating of –11.

[The number –11 should be read as “minus-eleven,” not as “negative-eleven”.]

This is slightly up from the Second Quarter, which had 34% Satisfied and likewise 48% Dissatisfied, or Net –13, correctly rounded.

President Macapagal-Arroyo’s national net rating has been unfavorable for nine consecutive survey rounds, ever since the Third Quarter of 2004.

Positive only in the Visayas

PGMA’s Net Satisfaction score is favorable only in the Visayas, where it grew to +6 in September from +2 last June.
[The number +6 should be read as \n“plus-six,” not as “positive-six”.] It became slightly less negative in Metro Manila, at -41 nnow compared to –47 last June, and in the Balance of Luzon, at -10 now compared to –13 in June. In Mindanao it dipped insignificantly to –8 now, from –7 in June.

Rural people now feel neutral

Positive only in the Visayas

PGMA’s Net Satisfaction score is favorable only in the Visayas, where it grew to +6 in September from +2 last June.

[The number +6 should be read as “plus-six,” not as “positive-six”.]

It became slightly less negative in Metro Manila, at -41 now compared to –47 last June, and in the Balance of Luzon, at -10 now compared to –13 in June.

In Mindanao it dipped insignificantly to –8 now, from –7 in June.

Rural people now feel neutral
The President made a significant gain in rural areas, \nwhere those Satisfied grew from 34% in June to 42% in September, while those \nDissatisfied fell from 46% to 43%, bringing her rural net score to –1 now \ncompared to –12 previously, or a change to a neutral score from a previously unfavorable one. The balance from 100% are fence-sitters, neither satisfied nor dissatisfied.

In urban areas, on the other hand, those Satisfied were \nunchanged at 35%, while those Dissatisfied barely moved, from 50% to 51%, making \nher urban net score a clearly unfavorable –17 (correctly rounded), compared to -15 in June. Thus the unfavorable national sentiment about the President is presently accounted for by strongly negative feelings in urban areas outbalancing neutral feelings in rural areas.

Women no longer more dissatisfied than men

In urban areas, on the other hand, those Satisfied were unchanged at 35%, while those Dissatisfied barely moved, from 50% to 51%, making her urban net score a clearly unfavorable –17 (correctly rounded), compared to –15 in June.

Thus the unfavorable national sentiment about the President is presently accounted for by strongly negative feelings in urban areas outbalancing neutral feelings in rural areas.

Women no longer more dissatisfied than men 

Among men, on the other hand, both satisfaction (to 37% \nfrom 38%) and dissatisfaction (to 48% from 47%) barely moved, causing men’s net \nsatisfaction to be steady at –11 now, from –10 (correctly rounded) \nformerly.

In short, women and men are now equally dissatisfied with PGMA, whereas last June women were more dissatisfied with her than men.

Slight increases in all classes
President Arroyo’s Net Satisfaction Rating is more or \nless equally low among the middle-to-upper ABC classes (-20) and in the very \npoor E class (-18), but not as bad among the masa or D class \n(-6).

[] ..
