  • Voter Outcome is questionable! They should get a bigger sample size. 1,160 respondents for an adult population of more than 20-odd million Malaysians is not an acceptable representation.

  • A hog wash survey. It is not a true representation of the rakyat in the country. More of selected choice in who where and what to survey.

  • Not many was polled for choices.... as for Wan Azizah, i don't see what she has done so far.... Azmin Ali is the same...except contradicting his actions and lie to the people... as for Muhyiddin, he was bed ridden for almost a month... so none so far has been done.... well i guess, people are rooting for the 'safest' rather than the ones who are active. Because the active ones like LGE, Mat Sabu,Dzulkefly & Maszlee are always with controversial actions only so far. I think this poll is a fail effort.... or maybe it was the ministers who failed?

  • What a rubbish sample! Wan Azizah is nothing more than a temporary proxy for Anwar. She has neither the savvy nor the stature to be DPM. Let's face it - that's the truth. If it wasn't for the need to keep a pulse on cabinet politics for Anwar, and if it wasn't for that "agreement" that PKR are touting, she wouldn't even be a deputy minister. So, let's stop exaggerating her role in government and her achievements. We could have had a far better cabinet line-up if it wasn't for the personal greed and ambitions of many politicians. We have yet to find a completely selfless leader in the mould of Gandhi or Abe Lincoln. Party politics still takes precedence over the nation and it's people. That is so obvious. Look at Rafizi and Anwar. They just cannot wait to be in power. What a bunch of hypocritical clowns.

  • Not sure if it's a properly conducted poll does not deem credible.

  • Wan Azizah's score looks as skewed to me as Maszlee is appropriate given her "strong stance" against child marriage.

  • One of the dumbest & indecisive minister has been named the best. This poll is crap.
