Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — How many of the president's promises do you think he can fulfill?

If you answered "most, if not all" of them, then you share the same sentiment of most Filipinos nationwide, according to a June 24-27 survey by the Social Weather Stations (SWS).

The survey said 63 percent think Duterte can make good on "most, if not all" of his promises, while only 1 percent believe "none or almost none" of his promises will be fulfilled.

Only “a few” of Duterte’s promises will be fulfilled, according 32 percent, and 3 percent had nothing to say about that.

Not surprisingly, 75 percent of Mindanaons said all or most of Duterte's promises will be fulfilled. In Metro Manila, the proportion was 66 percent and it was 60 percent among those in the rest of Luzon. Only 54 percent of those in the Visayas hold a similar view.

Faith in the president's promises also transcends economic classes. There were more (69 percent) from the ABC classes who believe Duterte can fulfill most, if not all, of his promises — more than the 63 percent from the D and E.

Trust in all of Duterte's promises is apparent across all age groups, from millennials to baby boomers: 66 percent of Filipinos aged 25-34 and those aged at least 55 years old said most, if not all of his promises will come true. For the 18-24 and 35-44 age groups, 62 percent believe the same thing. It's 59 percent among those aged 45-54.

The SWS survey was conducted nationwide among 1,200 adults in face-to-face interviews days before Duterte's inauguration. The results first appeared on Businessworld, SWS' official publishing partner on Monday. The survey has a margin of error of ±3 percentage points.
