(Eagle News) — Net trust for China among Filipinos has fallen to “bad,” a recent Social Weather Stations survey found.
The survey conducted from Sept. 27 to 30 found the-33 rating was nine points less than the -24 registered in June and classified as “poor” by the pollster.
“This is the lowest since the bad -35 in June 2018,” the SWS said.
According to the pollster, net trust in China has been positive only in 9 out of 51 surveys conducted since August 1994.
The highest, the SWS said, was a moderate +17 in June 2010.
Based on the survey, net trust rating for the United States, on the other hand, was excellent, at +72, good or +37 for Australia, good for Japan at +35 and moderate for Singapore, at +26.
The survey said net trust rating for Vietnam was zero or neutral.
The survey was done using face-to-face interviews of 1800 adults nationwide: 600 each in Balance Luzon and Mindanao, and 300 each in Metro Manila and the Visayas.
Sampling error margins were pegged at +-2.3 percent for national percentages, +-4 percent each for Balance Luzon and Mindanao, and +-6 percent each for Metro Manila and Visayas.
