Only 16 % unhappy with Najib as PM


"Survey shows only 45% of Malaysians happy with Najib"
That's the heading used by the Malaysian Insider.

"Survey shows only 16% of Malaysians unhappy with Najib"
That's the headline the Malaysian Insider could have used.

The one that they used is not wrong. The latest Merdeka Centre survey did find that 45% of the 1,067 respondents were happy with Najib's performance as Prime Minister so far.

But notice the use of the word "only". Why is that word there?

I think most of us will agree if you say, "Only 1 out of 100".
But not 45.
45 out of 100 is quite a substantial amount.

The RM1 million blogger, meanwhile, interprets the survey's 45% as something else together. According to her, it means that "we do know how many want Najib to leave (leave the country/leave the job as PM?)". Don't laugh!

Poll findings cut both ways. Double-edged. You can report that 45% are happy with Najib or 16% unhappy with Najib, and both are correct.
But if you say "only 45%", you risk being accused of trying to spin.
I mean, you'd be accused of trying to spin if you say "only 16%" are unhappy with Najib.

And yet, that is a fact:
The findings of the survey indeed show that ONLY 16% of Malaysians are unhappy with Najib.
And now we do know that many want Najib to stay!
p.s. Another interesting fact is that 4 (not "only 4") out of 1o respondents refused to answer the question in Merdeka Centre's latest survey. A group of bloggers and journalists met with Sir Robert Worcester in Kuala Lumpur last week and one of the things the "UK King of Polling" stressed was the need to have professionals to deal with respondents.

dear rocky,

i've been reading the MI because its almost quite neutral...but more favorable to Pakatan's. instead of government. But the most i don't agree with.. they allowed their website comment segment under each article to be bomb by a lot of CYBERTROOPERS from Pakatan or PKR. Their modus operandi is to praise Pakatan as high as possible and kill any comment that pro to government. Please highlight this issue Mr Rocky.

amoker said...

Wrong Rocky. 45 out of 100 less than 50 or 51. nO matter what the spin is, he starts low and will only go lower. Look at Obama.

Do wonder what is 'no response' mean? Neutral?
The research seemed to be inaccurate at best.

Felicia said...

If anyone asks me that question, I will definitely say SATISFIED! The 16% should be STUPID!
Look at how he handles the state Perak.
Look at how good is our Malaysian Polis force…..
Look at Malaysian Media (Newspapers and TV News) shows us how he and his BN party members work so hard to solve the problems in this country ….. The best would be Utusan Malaysia.
And this is only into his 2 month.
Keep up the GOOD work PM Najib!
I bet, by next general election it will reach 90% Satisfied …. The rest (10% Dissatisfied) should be IDIOTS!
Thanks Rocky, for writing about these findings. :)

Dear Rocky,

SPOT ON.

This is why I always feel like I'm being covered in slime, and someone's trying to molest me every time I read Malaysian Insider (I've stopped reading them). They probably think they're all sly and cool with their little tricks, but to absolutely any sophisticated reader, it is plain creepy. CREEPY. Their dishonesty is so obvious but they still insist on peddling it as fact. People are not nearly as stupid as they think. As if we'll just bend over.

Those who want to believe that 45% want Najib to leave will find their jollies in that article, and those like you, who want to know better, will have to source out for further information.

At least RPK is straightforward with his spin. He knows it, I know it, you know it, everyone knows it, and the playing field is level. "Honor among thieves" come to mind. I can respect that.

With these guys, you cannot trust them. Zero credibility, full of pretend-patriotism, and playing themselves off as a -news- source. What a stain on Malaysian journalism.

Thanks for pointing out their bull to your considerable readership base. Everyone knows it but it is essential to be reminded sometimes.

Anonymous said...

Im guessing the rest of the non-respondant are too afraid of being exposed and get ISA if they answered 'No'. Because 39% is also a 'substantial' amount and having them being 'non-respondant' is saying something.

Its a poll and the recent fascination with polls is yet another American politics imports. So since this is an American import, a possible headline is "PM has a 45% approval rate". Also this is a poll that lacks all the controls to make sure the results "clean". How many of the respondents are registered voters? What is the political affiliation of the respondents? How was the poll conducted? These are very important controls to make a genuine poll. If you ask 1,000 opposition supporters and ask 1,000 BN supporters the same set of questions you will get very different results. If you use telephone polling but only asks people in the Klang Valley, you will find the results quite different then if you ask say in Kelantan or even in Perak. So always take polls that do not make the neccessary methodology clear up front with a grain of salt. They're not right or wrong. Just may not be accurate and may already be biased.

analysing statitics is double edged.

e.g a common analysis on drink driving says 20% of all accidents are caused by drink driving.

In other words 80% of accidents are caused by drivers who do not drink.

conclusion: can i say it is better to drink and drive? since only 20% cause accidents when drunk!

yes do not believe to much on statitics, the conclusions will always be bias towards the people who are funding it.

If we split the 39% of no response into half, then 69.5% happy and 30.5% unhappy. Not bad at all!

Congratulation to Najib for the job well done!

Malay (602) from Umno
Chinese (364) from MCA
Indian (101) from MIC

It makes more sense!

Rocky, Thanks for teaching me to judge the approval rating from your perpective. Americans should learn from you.

All surveys like this have some sort of bias - depending on how the questions are skewed and who is asked the question and what sort of sampling is done. So anyone should take any survey results with a pinch of salt.

The only 'survey' that counts is the one at the ballot box.

Many factors should be taken into consideration for a polls survey, or any opinion surveys for that matter.

Of course the results will vary with prevailing conditions.

Try conducting the survey with a group of economists, and the results will be different.

Try conducting the very same survey to a group of farmers in Bentong and the results will also be different.

And try conducting the similar survey in front of the street riot rebels and again you will have a totally different perspective.

Even then, it depends on how the results will be analysed and in whose agenda.

Take Belacan, for instance. Get 10 individuals from Scotland and 10 individuals with the same background from Penang to do a taste test. No need for further explanation.

A GOOD MAN DOES NOTHING.

Rocky,

Discounting 39% who did not respond, actually the percentage of respondents who say 'yes' is 74%. Well, if they want to show even a smaller percentage they can compare they people who say they are happy with Najib against the total population. What is this survey is all about, anyway?

Suttenakeran said...

Spinning stories doesnt work anymore. No matter what Malaysian Insider story title is (or what Rockybru suggests), it still shows that 46% of the population are unhappy with the PM. I think he is a better PM than our previous PM. But he has to do something serious to win back people's support and not use Utusan Malaysia as his propaganda agent to win the Malay votes. Its funny that UMNO owned Utusan calls the non-Malays pendatang and UMNO politicians like the DPM says he will investigate the matter. These are the stuff that makes the PM looks incompetent. People know Utusan is acting on the UMNO's orders, and DPM's excuses doesnt work. UMNO got to respect people's intelligence. Utusan's Awang reports to Johan Jaafar who is Najib's media man, people know this. Rockybru suggesting 16% spin instead of 46% on Malaysian Insider story is to take care of his rice bowl, people know this. But credit must be given where its due, Rockybru is one of the best bloggers around, he can take criticism and he got class, people also know that.

To me, the PM should take this surver positively. I remember one advert placed by the number 2 car in America many years back. It said, "Why the number 2 is better? Because we try harder!".

So the PM can be better if he tries harder to attract Malaysian voters.

This poll is a load of bollocks, najib's approval is highest among the indians! and this is coming from the community that wiped out the MIC during the polls.

is the logic here, yes... the indians are happy with najib yet vote in doves for pakatan. or are the polls flawed. i say the latter.

Pasquale said...

Rocky this reminded me of a statistics shown a the height of the US affirmative action(AF) in the 70s when a government directive were given to major companies, it says company under the AF should and must hire, black, woman and physically challenged people. Many companies complied by the directive and they hire many and gave jobs to physically challenged black woman!
For those who are slow here is the reason: instead of hiring three members of the minority who are black, a woman and a physically challenged, companies just hire one with such attribute! Just to showed how statistics can be manipulated for what ever reason!

Well bro rok, I think whatever it is the latest trick is good for Najib so that he can work harder and silence his critics in the future if he succeed.

Not like of our previous PM who are so complicent and like to be praised by his balaci.

The great leader will always dare with the challenge and accept critism. I think in the new edge ppl mindset is not more towards the party but the leader who can work for them. In this case, I dont think even the PR states also safe and play politics all the time. When the ppl or silence majority become fed up and boring with the antics they will automatically choose the old regime or vice versa.

Rocky,

What is the problem with you? I know you said it is not wrong for MI to use the headline it used but why do u hv a problem with that??

The fact is only 45% are happy with Najib so be it.. Rather you wish to headline it that only 16% are unhappy?

So if I read that 16% are unhappy does that automatically let me deduce that the rest of 84% are happy with him? Why wanna spin it like all spin doctors would do?

The logical sense would tell me that 84% are happy with him if I see a headline that says "only 16% are unhappy".. Isnt that what you are trying to imply and pls, pls dont deny it..

You are just trying to play with numbers to soothe 1's whimps and fancies.. Wake up and face facts la..

U hv changed.. Pls close down ur blog before more ppl hate ur guts out..

w9 said...

Statistics like the one above is used to strategize and not to be spun as only 45% or only 16%. In the past, BN won by a margin of around 55-60% on the total population. Only AAB had a better first term percentage. When his popularity dropped below 50%, he lost 5 states. Hence, if DSN does not have a comfortable 55% margin of approval, he will lose GE13 whether or not only 16% disapproved of him. Anything below 51% approval rating is really bad for the BN regime. Wrong interpretation can be bad for BN.

Lee said...

If you were to add the 39% no response to the 16% of those who were dissatisfied with Najib the percentage will come to 55%.On the other hand if you were to add the 39% no response to the 45% satisfied with Najib the percentage will be 84%.Are you trying to imply that 84% of Malaysians are in favour of Najib?!That is a faulty assumptions.The no response % is more likely not in favour of Najib, which means that Malaysian Insider's headline of only 45% are satisfied with Najib is nearer to the truth of what you are trying to imply!Just leave out the 39% no response and you have 45% satisfied with Najib.That is very logical...only 45% are satisfied with Najib and that is by any account a shameful state of affairs for our PM. He has to buck up and deliver on his 1Malaysia .We are waiting for him to prove beyond doubt that his 1Malaysia is genuine and not a slogan to hookwink us Malaysians.First thing to do is to tone down Utusan.Then Rocky can go back to Malay Mail and
try to be truthful in your paper!

They believed their intelligence surveys, and were too busy keeping their hands down there they didn't see the tsunami and ridiculed their opponent's survey. Whatever the results 45% is still low which means even as DPM BolehLand fellos didn't think him Boleh enough.

Now matter how you spin it, Najib has a long way to go to be accepted as the people's Prime Minister. I suggest you hold on to your own spinning until he holds a General Election to legitimize his position as a Prime Minister from the people of Malaysia and not just UMNO.

I could spin it as the ones with no response were actually a polite response to mean "nothing to say if you have nothing good to say" (about Najib).

APANAMA PM MALAYSIA?

Rocky,
This depends on who one wants to support.What you said and what MI said is both correct..
You as a person on BN said would like to say it your way and while who is in the other side of the court would like to say it other way round.

This would be the same spin done by all the MSM of Malaysia when comes to Opposition related matters.

Anonymous said...

Firstly v must read how the question was asked. "How strongly you feel" actually push respondents to answer either a yes or no. The phrasing do not allow marginal satisfaction/dissatisfaction.

Looking at the new PM, usually should enjoy a Honeymoon period thus typically gets a satisfaction score upfront. But even at this juncture already having 46% satisfaction rating should be a course of concern. The ruling govt or the PM ally should take action to arrest the slide. Of course we should at this stage accept the research is credible, which I trust should be accurate.

Then v look at the reply of no comment, actually it would typically fall between fairly satisfied or fairly dissatisfied. Thus a high figure here would also mean a better way to gauge it would be a 5point rating scale. Whereby marginal satisfaction could be recorded.

Recalculating of satisfaction by removing no comment response here could not be used since the % is so high!

Obviously the stark difference between ethnic is also due to our culture and adat.
Malays tend to stick to middle line or nice especially those non city. They would tend to say more yes, satisfied etc.
Chinese would usually tend to be more upfront with exception to political questions for fear hence typically with no comment. As in this instance a higher no comment score
Indian also are closer to Malay way of being not offending and nice when answering. Again this also depend on being city dweller or not
Generally city dweller would be more blunt or demanding, perhaps due to more exposed and aware

All in all think it is not a good sign for the PM

Cheers

What survey??? In Penanti, it once again proven that PeeM, UMNO and its leaders has no guts to face the Rakyats and its outsourcing politics to independents is a great failure. The Real Elections are the real survey of Malaysian opinion of Najib's performance and as can be seen most of the Rakyats wanted to boot UMNO/BN out to free Malaysia of corruptions and oppressions, ISA & OSA asap.

The more UMNO leaders try to oppress the Rakyats using the Police as their tools, the more losses they will suffer in any Elections if not all Elections including the GE 13 which is their coup de grace.

They have now a tyro Education Minister who is trying to retard the full potential of students by limiting the number of subjects the students can take in SPM’s Exams. You see this is done in order for the residential students to excel in the limited field they are taught in. Now, this how narrow minded the tyro Education Minister can be, frankly he should be booted out if his narrow mindedness which is limiting talent. You can take all the subjects in SPM but not all will be perform well as study time is limited only the best of the best will ever excel therefore it does not take an Education Minister to tell us who are the more excellent students who should be selected for Scholarships to study overseas.

With a small 1067 polled against a 27,000,000 Malaysians, this represented 0.0004% of the Malaysian population.

No doubt, using statistics process, the survey as has been done, I think it should not just provide the results but also must mention the accuracy tolerance.

The "No Response" category of 39% speaks volume of the silent ones who felt that there is no idea of how Najib is doing.

Let's not forget this, Rocky.

I hope you, now being very pro-BN, would not skew the perception towards BN but be more issue-centric in order to provide a more fairer assessment of the polls results. By my comments, it does not mean I am against you but merely being practical.

Much of our reasoning involves situations that are relative, not absolute. And that's how the 45% is taken... Relative to a total of 100% and not relative to a total of 16%.

Your spin on the statistics is because you are taking the figures as absolute.

The answer to questions usually depend on a number of things.. It is precisely for this reason that different people often reach different conclusions from the same information..

Hi Bro,

MI has a slant, just like Mainstream newspapers and anyone who writes a blog.

Readers gotta make up their own minds.


Now about this survery, I never pay much attention to it because we know nothing about the sampling size and exactly how it's conducted, for example, verbal surveys, the tone of voice could slant the response.


I once come across for an organization that has tons of great testimonials on their website... then I discovered how they got the testimonials... they invite their clients over for a lavish free dinner plus entertainment... and on the way out survey them about their service. Now imagine: would a person who's just been invited for a free meal in your house say anything negative about you on the way out if you ask them?

I also came across another survey before, an IT industry salary survey that companies paid thousands for... for each position, less than 20 companies gave inputs... you could get better results from just looking at the CVs of applicants for that position and average out their salaries!

Najib, on the other hand, had never breached the 50% line at all.

Anonymous said...

Melayumuda probably speaks for those in his position. Never voted, but because he believes in what he reads in cyberspace, he believes Najib is not the right man....perhaps Anwar is?

For those like amoker, it seems to me that being with the flavour of the day, to bash BN would be the in thing.

And I trust many more would think that they actually know the truth. Ask yourself if you even know your parents. What they like to do, eat, drink, watch on telly, travel to places, etc. Do you really know them? You might not even know your neighbour. And then why would you think you know polliticians better?

Wasn't Mahathir frowned upon/hated by the community when he took over? And if you are on of those who don't agree with me that he did more good than damage to this country, go ahead, take your number and wait in line.

Look around you and see if you are really put in a position where you have to fight for your every meal.

And this perceived instability in the political landscape? Who do you think put it there? I don't know, I must have been sleeping, but if my memory serves me right, it is not so much as Abdaullah's inability, but more of Anwar's eligibility!!

Think! And if you can't, don't be shy to ask your parents!

I agree! Najib is doing a great job! 16% is only the stupid fakatan rakyat folks!! Najib is doing a great job. Look at economy, under PM Najib, Malaysia have been doing very well. And there is also more freedom. I don't care what people say about the arrest in Perak, these people are trouble makers and deserve to be thrown in jail. Al-Juburi and gang must be stopped at all cause. And not forgeting the traiter Si-Nazi!

To prove your theory that only 16% were unhappy, it is quite easy to put to test. Let Perak assembly be dissolved and have a state election to determine the level of unhappiness with Najib as PM.

Just wondering how is our Malaysians thinking like. We keep looking at the West like comparing our leader with Obama. I personally felt that YAB PM has done a wonderful jobs so far. Our economies and currency is very stable not like the US that keep printing their money without value it to gold.

Lets look at the survey itself. What is the methodologies used in the survey and what is the respondent pool comprise of. If you get it from kampung folks then the outcome is likely to differ from those from city. Why so many respondent not being able to respons? What is the age category used? Why not shows the background? From my own experiences of doing survey, lot of respondent is not willing to give the responsive attitude. Then any finding of survey is also subject to manipulation. But then again we have to know the credibility of the survey chief as well.

I just wondering that rumours was so strong that MI was own by a guy name Kalimullah and Brendon who is well associated with former premier and was also a PR adviser to former PM. Yet they seems to act differently lately. More towards oppositions. Furthermore lots of fact and counter comment on the negative pertaining to the government was block as the publisher is screening the content.

YAB PM has done a wonderful jobs so far since he take over the prmierships. Welldone and keep it up. Malaysia Boleh Lagi.

This is how the result should be interpreted:

50% of Malaysians say they are not happy with Najib being PM. The other 50% are afraid they will go missing or be C4-ed.

A bit on research & statistics (i.e. read before interpret):
-Surveys are one of the weakest research designs for inferential statistics.
-Non-random sampling introduces bias (not to mention other systemic biases).
-To infer the findings towards the general population (provided that the design is sound), percentages should be written in Confidence Interval (e.g. CI95%= 45% +/- 10%).
-Sample size affects alpha, beta and "power" of the study.

So please... let the pros do these kind of stuffs. Misleading readers is so unethical.

-Missing data (i.e non-response) should be investigated. Also known as non-ignorable missing data (MAR/MCAR).

1. Malaysian population until today is 28,214,712
1,067 respondents = ONLY 0.003782 % of total Malaysian population.. akai ada ka?? Valid ka this survey???

2. Ok Ok since MI used this survey in their news ..let us do the calculation ..
1067 respondents will represent 28214712 Malaysian.
meaning 1 respondent will represent 26443.021 Malaysian…. What a joke .(kids + orang gila were also included ka??)
Anyway..
16% of 1067 = 16% of 28,214,712 = 4,514,353.92 Malaysian
MEANING 4.5 MILLION MALAYSIAN DISLIKE (HATE..?? ) NAJIB

Now let us calculate how many of us really like him.. HEHEHEHE

45% of 1067 = 45% of 28,214,712 = 12,696,620.4 Malaysian..
MEANING MORE THAN 12 MILLION MALAYSIAN IN FAVOUR OF HIM..

Again.. if you ask some kids..which one is bigger..12 .7 or 4.5 of course you’ll know the answer laaa…

How about the “ATAS PAGAR” “ NO RESPONSE” respondents?..
39% of 1067 = 39% of 28,214,712 = 11,003,737.7 Malaysian
MEANING 11 MILLION MALAYSIAN EITHER “ATAS PAGAR” or “ DON’T BOTHER” ?? or PERHAPS this 11 million are kids + orang gila of Malaysia?
REMEMBER..WE HAVE MORE THAN 9 MILLION MALAYSIAN WHO ARE UNDER 14 YRS OLD… the number of orang gila I really don’t know..hehehe
(Errr.. let us assume there are 2 million orang gila in Malaysia due to our economic and political situations..)

SO, LET US FORGET THE 39% LAH.. SINCE THIS SURVEY, I BELIEVED DID NOT INCLUDE KIDS AND ORANG GILA..

MEANING…. MAJORITY MALAYSIAN REALLYYYY LOVEEEEEEDDD NAJIB !!
TO 4.5 MILLION MALAYSIAN, PLEASE MIGRATE TO OTHER COUNTRIES ..GO FIND ANOTHER LEADERS WHO YOU THINK ARE BETTER AND GREATER THAN NAJIB .. WE DON’T NEED YOU !!

Dear Rocky,

If 46% approval is not good news for Najib's leadership, does that mean it is also not good news for the Pakatan candidate in the Penanti by-election who got about the same percentage of votes from the DUN's electorates?
Can we then use the same reasons put forward by the commenters who are negative about the polling and who seem to think that 46% indicates that Najib has a long way to go.
God is great. What these commenters (presumably pro-Pakatan) have to say about Najib's leadership is actually valid for the Penanti by-election. But then, of course they would choose to remain silent about the lowest turnout in the history of Malaysia's by-election.
Granted that there's room for improvement within the BN government, but it takes a mature and fair-minded person to give credit where it is due, and as an impartial observer, I think Najib does deserve credit for all the efforts to improve things in the country within the short span that he has been in office.
We have to keep reminding ourselves, he is Prime Minister to all of us - not just the BN or the BN supporters.
If the Pakatan supporters continue to be judgmental and prejudiced all the time when commenting on matters of national interest, sooner or later, people like me - who don't take sides - will have to take sides in the name of national unity.

Rocky,

Please allow me to rephrase my sentence in an earlier posting which read: If 46% approval is not good news for Najib's leadership, does that mean it is also not good news for the Pakatan candidate in the Penanti by-election [who got about the same percentage of votes from the DUN's electorates]?

The phrase within parentheses should read: "...who got about the same percentage of voter turnout from the total number of electorates...?"

And that coming from a Pakatan stronghold says a lot about the silent majority, doesn't it...?

Lets take your formula for Penanti?

It has 15384 voters.

Only 942 voted against PKR.

Of the balance 14442, 6052 actually came out to vote for PKR.

The remaining 8390 stayed away but supported PKR.

So, only 6.12% of voters in Penanti did not like PKR. Whereas 93.88% were in favour of PKR, except that not all came out to vote.

Correct?

Why not tell the BN guys to follow this analogy of your for Penanti?

Bagus kan?

The Chinese are very pissed off with the way the govt handle the Chin Peng issue.

Nobody (including Malaysian Chinese) supports the communism anymore. Even China has moved on. But the way the govt si playing with this issue especially Utusan Malaysia will surely backfire in the next GE.

What we want is for that old chap to come back and die peacefully here. What can he do here anymore. Set-up another PKM ?

If we want to look into the brutality of the past, then from the time of Portugese invading of Melaka, then the Dutch, British and worst still is the Japanese, can we honestly says to them - Back Off, You're not welcome? Those are the past and best forgiven and forgotten. The same goes for PKM. It's part of history.

If we doesn't allow the old man to come back, just made a statement and case close. Don't play the issue of past brutality and get the comment of Persatuan Bekas Askar and what not. The MSM especially Utusan is playing with fire.

As a Chinese, I'm really hurt with the way the issue is being played up.

Just waiting for the next GE.

Like a certain Awang Selamat who, while waxing eloquent on "pendatangs", dares not comment on the PM's visit to China. Typical of bullies who run away when the "big brothers" show up.

Now, let's wait for the other big "abang" (aka India) to get into the act.

That's 3 big "abangs" (US, China and India) and 1 medium-sized "abang" (Indonesia) for little "abang" Malaysia to contend with.

no response is usually taken as negative but even then such a high number of no response is not good la. well we can spin it anyway that is statistics la.

but najib says KPI will take into consideration about the people and how they feel. well there is no surveys done by the govt and if they do, ask for one to be done by an independent unit. but will the govt do it? if not how will the govt know how the people feel about the KPIs in 6 months or 12 months.

That said, if Najib wants to check his ratngs, call for an election. Every new Pm will do it so they govern on their own mandate. So Najib should call for an election within a year. good time for hism to show what he has done and get his own mandate instead of using mandate given to pak lah by the people.

WHY aren't you commenting on the very question that you had asked? You do feel it's so very important, no? I'll bet you did - made a post about it at your blog. "Tapi sambutan kurang memberangsangkan, sehingga maniam terpaksa tutup kedai" Heheh! Come one; let's have the address...

You know, it amazes me that so many people are angered by Rocky giving a different - BUT ENTIRELY VALID - interpretation of the statistics. What's the matter - can't accept them because they go against your preconceived conclusions?

Where did you place your "objectivity" and "fair-mindedness"? Most likely you had stuffed it all up your a*se, based on the personal attacks.

Oh, can you look up what the adverb "strongly" means, and how it affects the following word and also the whole question? There are online dictionaries to refer to; like dictionary.com. Hope that's not too mentally taxing for those with such small brains...

what's the big point & the so big deal when any PM of a country pay a visit to china? he can even go to hell if he choosed too..i don't choosed him there.. i wanted to be a PM myself if u ask me..hahaha..

How cheap & low can your mind go further down..? sad.. nothing work for u already this days.. still suffering asshole-trauma, do ya? i know, you are bankrupt of grey matters..u already transposed your ass up & brain down..no substance anymore inside your stupid chingkie brain already..all flow like diarhoea..

no need be so obvious lah piggy..u just making fun of yourself lah ..

why u always need to jump like wild baboon on a joyride when the word 'china' come across to display? u must be a freak..like a desperate old whore craving for a giant erectile dysfuctional dick..kah..kah..

nak berambus pergi lah mampus sana..tak payah bising2..senang...by going to china doesn't mean that malaysia going to be china colony, u stupid..who knows, maybe he wanted to scout for hot blowing chingkie girls there & take over the business from u chigkie idiots..his family also in business ma..hahahaha.. :D

I wonder what kind of welcoming party your big brother gonna throw for u chingkie loosers if u people decided to return to China...better u ask chairman Mao..1++ fucking billions are more than enough of trouble..shooting down a few thousands like wild animals at Tiannamen square didn't make any significant different at all..even such a tiny portion from there in malaysia already had caused enough trouble i say u..maybe malaysia can barter trade with china..send all these chingkie troublemakers & exchange with our muslims brothers & sisters there..& its more easy for us to form 1Malaysia & 1Sekolah after that..if u go..i will happily say: Good riddance, piggy..!!

Moron..your auguments doesn't slightly change any facts that u are still and always a decendant of pendatang & wild runaway savages..u r indeed a living proof to confirm that, u stupid chingkie pigbrain..

Wow..your big brother even throw a huge welcoming party for Najib..i'm so surprised.. back here, we only welcome china girls for fuck..hahaha...

what is enough for u hah piggy? u just further disgrace your own kind..pity u..pigbrain never learn, do they..?

39% is just 1% short of 40%. So if we round up to 40% NO RESPONSE, the picture is even worse: generally in surveys 'undecided' response would be less than 5%. So when almost half the respondent dare not make a committment something is wrong somewhere.

Let me ask you, if you like or support somebody wouldn't you quickly give an affirmative answer? Therefore it can be CONCLUDED that the almost half undecided were actually NOT HAPPY with najib.

Therefore it is beyond any doubt that the FINAL CONCLUSION IS: 84% ARE UNHAPPY WITH NAJIB

maniam

p.s but don't be disheartened by this revelation, all is not lost. We still have a long way to go before next GE. Plenty of time to improve kan

Heheheh Skillgannon,

Pantang sebut Negara lain, terlompat kat keyboard!

Tak rasa malu pulak tu sebut China, a land where his forefather abandoned/ sneaked out because tarak syiok berjuang disana, tarak syiok cari makan kat sana, tarak FLEEDOM, terpaksa FLEA and abandon segalanya including your precious citizenship dan sanggup belayar and merempat kat tanah asing!

Hoi Skillgannon,

makluk yang sayangkan Negara TIDAK TERGAMAK MENGHINA DAN MEMANDANG RENDAH AKAN NEGARA SENDIRI. Lebih2 lagi buang keRakyatan. We Bumiputra’s, will hold our head dengan megahnya to declare “I AM FROM MALAYSIA”…

You sudah baca JMD pasai our national pride?

So if Najib goes to China or India, so what? Your kind abandoned the place right? Are you sure the people of ROC are proud to claim you as a brother, one who deserted their own country?

Dear Rockey's

Its a little late for me to post a comment. But You too find it's interesting to post the survey result on our PM by MI.

For info. I have posted many comment on articles by MI. But none was published in their blog cos most of the time I gave them a nasty hard and negative comment.

What Master said is true but short to pass remark that MI is an anti Malay and anti establishment blog. What more on our PM Najib. I do not think MI is happy to see Najib to be our PM. All they want is somebody who has a worse background so that they could hit harder.

Those who read postings by MI could analise themself that all comment using fictitious name are the work of a few people working for them for their comment, words and points raised are almost similar and a repetition by another. Their comment are most illogical and
underrating our intelligence. They are fit to be caged in Hospital Bahagia Tanjung Rambutan.

Now they posted a survey result on the popularity of our PM. To me the results purportedly obtained in the survey do not portray common sense. Its more like a stupid person commenting on issues that he does not even know about. Their comment are full of shit and their knowledge is too shallow to be grasped.

I would advice you Mr Rockey's not to take or link anymore posting from MI. They are digging their own grave.

the facts are stacked up after the last GE and the continous loss of key bi elections. We know the major cities in peninsular is gone to pkr; from kedah thnru -melaka.

Rakyat need drastic changes at every level of govt and glcs. They need to have hope for hope. We know...perception that has been created real or otherwise, had sunked in deep to every layer of society. Walk around, sit, meet, chat a lil dude and you'll see son and daughters. These is probably the worst period of our land and yet we continue to use the stick versus dialog and threat vs negotiate. We are a goner soon enough if biz by politician man is not curbed and people can voi

rocky,
najib can be popular if he keeps out the keledek rebuses. i heard from the sports people of a yb who heads netball. she sold out he friend in a recent election just becoz some one promised her some netballs and jersey and another promise he some post. we don't needf politicians in sports, wat more this kind of kucing kuraps. najib will do well if he keeps this kind of people away.

Objectively I won't put too much faith in that survey.

If you want a better yardstick to assess him then please look at from the standpoint what has he done since coming into office.

A ticklish stimulus package, don't you think? Not a bloody difference as far as I am concerned. I'm still struggling.

Was he on the right footing at first? He didn't address the nation to let Malaysians know what's on the agenda. Maybe he knows what the Malaysians want and he knows he cannot deliver. Corruption is a case in point he avoided at all costs from being mentioned. He avoids that topic like a plague.

Release ISA and then put some back in?

Why didn't he sue the likes of RPK, some French newspaper et al for making those slanderous accusations since he's the most powerful man in Malaysia?

1Malaysia? What is that? His sidekick did a damaging article, and his ideas for the nation is now in the gutter.

Malaysia "to be unaffected" by the economic meltdown? Are his economic advisors morons?

So the man is basically clueless, sitting idly and watching as the time passes him by while the nation is dire straits. He's at his wit's end.

The 46% must be equally as clueless as he is.

satisfied do not mean that we are happy, to say that I am satisfied with my Job now which provide me bread and shelter is no further than to express satisfaction, nothing near happiness as was interpreted here.

Bulls**t - anti hindraf & wira

Let's see if you are brave enough to reprise your views when the President and PM of China come calling during their next official visits to Malaysia.

Or the next time a Chinese Navy ship docks at Port Klang and it's crew are let out on a little R&R.

Hoi, anti whatever & Wira - got the guts to demonstrate in front of the Chinese Embassy in KL? Let's see how quickly the SB guys take you in and give you a guided tour of Kamunting!

Ah, heck - Singapore MM Lee Kuan Yew is currently visiting Malaysia. And he is meeting with HRH the Agong, the PM and the Deputy PM. All nice and buddy-buddy. Do I hear the weeping and grinding of teeth from the "ultras" out there? The same "ultras" whose predecessors wanted to arrest the same LKY as a traitor in the days before Singapore was ejected from Malaysia?

Strange how times have changed - Singapore has the funds, the political connections and the military muscle. Plus the backing of 2 big "abangs" - the US and China, 1 medium-sized "abang" - India and 1 "abang-in-the-making" - Indonesia.

No wonder Malaysia has to go along quietly and make nice-nice. Because the rules of the game have changed. No matter what delusions anti whatever and Wira labour under.

Boy - that must be causing you to crap in your underpants!

Mua-ha-ha!!!!!

Continue humiliating yourself, sissymoron boy..hahaha..

Since when u got any brothers u pendatang? Self-proclaimed? Mind looking at yourself in the mirror? You are nothing more like a filthy lowlife flea leaching & sucking for 'brothers' to survive..how pathetic..where is your maruah parasite?

Flea: Xenopsylla cheopis

Hey moron, if China or any country want to have military invasion over Malaysia, WE not gonna run away from our land like u cowards pendatangs..that features only inherited in your DNA, not ours..u people are decandant of cowards & savages...hahaha..

WE have maruah & honour..unlike u pendatangs..

Great One as usual, bro anti-whatever. You are DE man!

away on holiday, i dint bother to comment although this pigdog, the product of the union between sus barbatus and a terrier (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pig_dog),taunted me and you. Would have been a waste of my holiday to respond to this piece of shit that has got nothing but pigshit up there and a shrivelled cock down there.

Arse-torn, mouthfucked bastard talk about all the great abangs (leaving out, the US and "readymade" Spore) who by the way are behind MALAYSia in them economic ranking stakes.The pigshit has them data filed in his arse and it must be galling to read them every time he needs some masochist butt fuck.

China as a going concern is about to be finished (give or take 2 years), exports, its lifeline, are down again in May (22%) and the domestic economy is being propped up by pumppriming which is being misallocated into unproductive sectors,unnecessary capacity building and of course shoring up the soon to collapse stock market, an artificial bubble being created by the nervy apparatchiks to keep a lid on rising unemployment and social strife.

Spore is finished for keeps, its economic cock to shrink to the size of skilly's peasized brain, hahahahaha......LOL. that's why LKY is over here to look for a burial plot to avoid being urinated for perpetuity.

The US..hahahahahaha LOL, watch inflation take off if the US economy ever dares to rear its cock. Bond yields are so trending upwards that investors are spooked as to what that will do over the long-term (higher borrowing costs that will strangle economic growth).At best they can hope is a L shaped recovery and Wall Street is on its last legs fed as it is by skewed economic data by the Berak (Oh)bummer. Only way out for them sods is a global war to induce manufacturing from its stupor as Krugman presciently noted. Indonesia...hahahahaha
enough said.

as you (anti-whatever) said this maruahless, homeless, cockless bastard pendatang still crows about his abangs cos he wants them to protect his skinny flea infested arse but they aint gonna do it for they have no gain in saving scum pemergis, a case of good riddance to bad rubbish in their books.

Talking of Indonesia konon, conveniently forgetting Medan 1998, ah bastard?Them Papuans have also got into the game now and them Aussies have had enuff of your co- hindulen leeches. You talk about abangs coming to the rescue, tell me what could the PRC do for their self exiled pendatangs circa 1998 and also circa 2009 in Papua and what could India do to help in Fiji (1987 onwards), sri lanka (2009) or even Australia (2009) .

Dengan Papua pun PRC takut, nak lawan malaysia..konon..pidahh pukimak.Truth is, the chingkie arse worms are scared of death and all it took was a bunch of steppe horseman from mongolia and later manchuria (+ Japan) to prove that and put them in place. Hail Genghis, Kublai and Nurhaci,Huang Taiji for bringing the selfstyled Middle kingdom to its arse...hahahaha.....LOL

I swear we will do worse than that, you arsetorn, mouthfucked, pa buggered, ma fucking son of a sus barbatus. We will send your decapitated head and those of your kind to your abangs Hu Jin Tahu and Wen Chi Bai pronto via Poslaju and see if they have the testicular fortitude to ever come after us. We got MARUAH, pendatang! get it, you will always be a pendatang unless you assimilate by chopping off your shrivelled pecker, speak our lingo, go to our schools...etc. Till then, keep your pendatang selves quiet lest we pempergi you into the sea.
