Merdeka Centre, which some say is closely aligned to Anwar Ibrahim's camp, has come out with latest survey findings on Malaysia's politics, ie the popular ratings of the Prime Minister and his army. Despite a decline in the respondents' satisfaction with Barisan Nasional, the ruling coalition that Najib Razak leads, they are happy with the man, according to the Malaysian Insider in Populariti Najib Stabil, BN Turun 6 Peratus. But Anwar Ibrahim insists, through one of his many mouthpieces (The Malaysian Chronicle) that because Najib's 64 per cent ratings is far lower than Pak Lah's peak of 71 per cent, therefore, The End is Near. Hehe.
Some people take MC seriously. We are reminded by Jahabar Sadiq in the Malaysian Insider article of how Pak Lah had called for the General Election soon after his sensational 71 per cent popularity poll by the Merdeka Centre and, well, the rest is history ...
Back then, Harakah didn't buy it when MC gave Pak Lah the 71 per cent marks. Read Abdullah Badawi tidak popular, kajian Merdeka Centre lemah. They turned out to be so right.
So, be aware of what they want you to believe.
