Oh, I was right! Their approval rating has dropped from 75 percent when they first won the election to 41 percent after a little over a year being in power. Wow! So much for election euphoria! I don’t care what you say but that is a drastic change of sentiments within a year.

I’m afraid that I may have gradually fallen in that 34 percent reduction category - very reluctantly I have to admit. This isn’t a very nice feeling seeing that there is no better option for the government right now because the opposition is just a bunch of racist and extremist fools.

When I talk about this, I have people saying to me things like, “so, you would actually prefer if Umno and PAS take over?”. But that isn’t the point. The point is that right now, we have voted in a coalition that isn’t fulfilling many of their promises and we need to hold them accountable...
