    A recent Social Weather Station (SWS) survey showed that 75 percent of Filipinos believe the country under Duterte is heading in the right direction.
    The SWS Third Quarter survey, conducted from September 15 to 23, found that 75 percent of adult Filipinos had full trust in the President, while 14 percent were undecided and 12 percent had little trust. This gave Duterte a net trust rating of +62, rising from +57 in June 2018, classified by SWS as “very good.”
    Presidential Spokesman Salvador S. Panelo said in a statement: “We view this as a reflection of our people’s continued trust and confidence in the President and an affirmation that the policies and programs of the current administration are on the right track.”
    According to the SWS Third Quarter survey, the 75 percent was five points higher compared to the 70 percent recorded in the second-quarter survey. On the other hand, only 22 percent believed the Philippines is in the wrong path, while 3 percent of the 1,500 adult respondents did not give an answer. The strong public appreciation was seen in the rise of survey numbers in all geo-graphic areas, particularly in Metro Manila where it increased from 57 percent to 65 percent. Balance of Luzon registered an increase from 68 percent to 73 percent, followed by the Visayas from 66 percent to 69 percent, and Mindanao from 87 percent to 89 percent.
    With about four more years in office, Duterte is in a good position to effect the changes he promised to the nation. For example, he can leverage his high approval ratings and his legislative clout to marshal the resources needed to finance and sustain the government’s economic plan.
    Malacañang views the latest SWS survey as a source of inspiration “to continue delivering the President’s promise of genuine and meaningful change in the government and to the nation.”
    Panelo said: “It has often been said that the first job of every good leader is to inspire trust, as such is essential to produce positive results. We assure everyone that, regardless of the ratings, there is no room for complacency in this branch of the government. The Duterte administration will persevere in implementing bolder reforms to make the bureaucracy more efficient and responsive to the needs of the people.”
