There are signs all is not well for Barisan Nasional in the state long known to be a stronghold of the ruling coalition. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Nazir Sufari, February 20, 2018.

WARNING lights are flashing for Barisan Nasional in Johor with data from a survey suggesting that all is not well for the coalition in its stronghold. 

Even the Umno rank and file are concerned that voters in the southernmost state are brooding over the high cost of living and not giving enough credit to the Najib administration for prudent management of the economy.

  • THis election, survey on UMNO/BN is very misleading - truth is what is needed is survey on Pakatan Harapan and even on Hadi's PAS. Its about PH winning, not about UMNO/BN losing because Hadi's PAS is the one that guarantees it.

  • On the ground, Johoreans feel the pinch of high cost of living and poor take home income, while on the other side of the causeway, everything is so much greener and cleaner. This feeling translates intobad impression of present government. It is very natural that Johoreans want change.. PH must come in full overwhelming force and ride on this feeling and take Johor down before it is too late.

  • I agree that the number of people who are dissatisfied with the way things are going is higher than the number of people who are satisfied, not only in johor, but the whole of the country. Despite that , i dont think that the greater number of dissatisfied people favours the opposition significantly. I think most of the dissatisfied people see very little difference between pakatan and BN - they are both seen as self serving and lacking in capabilities, well intentions and virtues. I think most of the dissatisfied people will conclude that rather than
    trust the government or the opposition, they should depend themselves more. I think all the people who are dissatisfied with the way things are, are just going to see which side is going to give more, not which side is better, before they choose.
