Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte continues to enjoy the support of Filipinos, said an independent poll released on Friday.

A survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS), conducted from Dec. 16 to Dec. 19, found that 74 percent of adult Filipinos satisfied, 11 percent undecided and 15 percent dissatisfied with Duterte administration's performance.

Compared to September 2018, the SWS said that Duterte's gross satisfaction rating rose by four points from 70 percent.

"This brings President Duterte's 2018 annual average net satisfaction score to a very good level," the SWS survey said in a statement.

The Philippine Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said on Friday night that the Presidential Palace welcomed the survey result which registered an uptick of satisfaction rating in all socio-economic classes.

The polling body has so far conducted 10 surveys from September 2016 up to December 2018. Throughout his presidency, the SWS surveys showed that Duterte enjoyed eight times "very good" and twice "good".

Panelo said the approbation of a great majority of Filipinos will "encourage Duterte to continue waging battles against all forms of criminality and corruption, to further pursue his unrelenting dismantling of the drug apparatus and destruction of the drug syndicate, to crush once and for all rebellion, insurgency and terrorism, to keep improving the social services given to people and to end the assaults on our natural resources and environment".

The survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,440 adults nationwide, with sampling error margins of ±2.6 percent for national percentages.
