The above are figures from the last general elections. Pakatan Rakyat and others got 52% of the 11,054,577 votes cast. So what has changed today?
PAS has cross the divide and gone over to the other side. Pakatan Rakyat is no more, Anwar Ibrahim is in Sungai Buloh and we now have Pakatan Harapan.
Of course we now have Tun Dr Mahathir in place of Anwar Ibrahim and by default, we also have Najib and Rosmah working very hard to take away voters from Barisan Nasional and bring them into Pakatan Harapan camp.
Yes Najib and Rosmah are on our side! Najib and Rosmah has an unfair advantage over Tun Mahathir. Tun Mahathir is not only old but Tun does not have 1MDB. Tun does not have the United State Department of Justice naming him as MO1. Tun does not have the Scorpene Submarine, Altantuya and Razak Baginda to draw upon to make people want to vote for Pakatan Rakyat. And that is not all....Najib and Rosmah can also draw upon FGV, Wolf of Wall Street, the Chinese from Communist China....etc etc....all those "things" that they can use to make people want to vote for Pakatan Harapan! No way can Tun Mahathir ever get that many people to come over to Pakatan Harapan side as Najib and Rosmah have already done!
Some of you may question the ability of Najib and Rosmah to attract voters to the opposition camp but just go ask any taxi driver or any barber in town and they will tell you who their customers are going to vote come PRU14 : More often then not they will tell you that Najib and Rosmah are driving their customers towards Pakatan Rakyat!
Think! It is not Mahathir and Mahyuddin that is responsible for the swing of voters to the opposition. It is Najib and Rosmah. I say that we should consider conferring upon those two, honorary membership of Pakatan Harapan, sans any membership fees! What says you?
