The Office of the Vice President (OVP) expressed its profound appreciation for the Filipinos’ continued trust in Vice President Sara Duterte as a leader and the recognition of her performance as a public servant.
The OVP committed to further intensify its efforts towards realizing its vision to reach, serve, and create a lasting impact on the lives of the Filipino people following Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte’s improved ratings in the recent Octa Research’s Tugon ng Masa (TNM) nationwide survey released on Tuesday.
The trust and performance ratings of Duterte improved in the fourth quarter of 2023, based on the survey wherein she gained a 77% trust rating, higher than the 75% she received in the third quarter survey.
The survey also showed that 75% of adult Filipinos said they are satisfied with her performance, higher than the 70% she scored in Q3 of last year.
In a statement, the OVP stated that the high trust and performance ratings that the Filipino people have for the Vice President, further inspire it to step up its efforts to provide effective, accessible, and responsive public services and programs for the benefit of all Filipinos.
Meanwhile, the trust and performance ratings of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. also improved in the fourth quarter of last year.
Based on the survey, the President’s trust rating rose to 76%, 3 percent higher than the third quarter survey. In terms of his performance, his 71% rating is significantly higher than the 65% he recorded last October.
The survey fieldwork was conducted using in-person interviews from December 10–14, 2023 and a total of 1,200 male and female respondents aged 18 years and above were interviewed for the survey.
