saya heran bagaimana ada usaha-usaha yang tertentu dibuat oleh seorang penulis  blog di Kota belud untuk cuba menolak dapatan kajian yang dilakukan oleh Merdeka centre berkenaan penurunan sokongan kepada kempimpinan Musa Aman di Sabah. Penulis ini yang dulu suka menggelar blog yang berselindung dengan nama samaran sebagai blog "orang-orangan' walaupun ramai yang tahu penulis inipun berselindung di sebalik blog orang-orangan ciptaannya itu dengan hujah yang melucukan. Memberi gambaran bahawa setia majlis yang dihadiri oleh pemimpin itu mendapati kehadiran rakyat sebagai petanda sokongan masih utuh adalah sesuatu yang tidak tepat dan tidak ada kekuatan hujah langsung berikutan perubahan trend rakyat sekarang tidak lagi menujukkan protes secara terang tetapi mula sedar betapa sokongan itu adalah sulit dan bersifat peribadi.

Majlis-majlis seperti hari raya, dan berbuka puasa jelas memberikan keselesaan kepada rakyat untuk hadir selain harapan dapat mendapat bantuan dan sebagainya. Pengalaman penuls sendiri, setiap majlis yang dihadiri oleh pemimpin yang melibatkan kehadiran rakyat yang ramai adalah mempunyai dua sebab.

Kalau bukan kerana dalam majlis itu ada bantuan yang diberikan sama ada bantuan hari raya ataupun bulan puasa, pasti dalam majlis itu kehadiran ramai dikaitkan dengan pemberian wang ehsan kononnya sebagai belanja kerana datang.

Jarang yang kita dengar rakyat datang dengan rela hati untuk menunjukkan sokongan yang tidak berbelah bahagi. kalau ada yang datang dengan cara begitu tentunya ada kepentingan. Dunia sekarang semuanya materialisitk

Jumlah undi yang diterima adalah penanda aras sokongan.

Kehadiran rakyat dalam majlis2 boleh juga jadi penanda aras tapi tidaklah signifikan sangat.

Betullah apa yang dikatakan. begitu juga apa yang berlaku untuk Pembangkang di Negeri Sabah ini seperti di Tuaran yang kununnya mendapat kehadiran yang ramai. Tapi apa pun kehadiran itu bukan penanda aras kepada sokongan.

Jadi jangan terlalu yakin kalau setakat mendapat sambutan dalam majlis. Mungkin cuma mahu datang makan dan mendengar apa yang dikatakan.

Undian adalah rahsia sebenarnya. Jadi lakukan untuk undian itu sebaiknya tanpa terpengaruh oleh pihak tidak bertanggungjawab.

“The worst-case scenario is winning just over 120 seats but we’re confident of getting as much as we did in 2008 if not more,” a senior BN official told The Malaysian Insider, saying that their calculations do not take into account the impact of another Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia (BR1M) payout next January where households earning less than RM3,000 a month will get a one-off RM500 cash aid.

The Malaysian Insider learnt that BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor expressed confidence that the ruling coalition will do as well as in 2008 during a recent talk with the Foreign Correspondents Club of Malaysia despite uneasiness over risky seats in the coalition’s “fixed deposit” states of Sabah and Sarawak.

It is understood that BN is expecting to lose some of the seats held by four Sabah MPs who left the coalition while the urban Chinese sentiment in Sarawak could see those seats going to PR. In Election 2008, the DAP was the sole PR component party to win a federal seat each in Sabah and Sarawak.

The ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) expects to win more than the 140 federal seats it took in Election 2008 despite the onslaught and talk by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) that it can capture Putrajaya in the next general election which must be called by the end of April 2013, say government sources.

“BN knows it can lose up to six in Sabah and seven in Sarawak but it hopes to make it up elsewhere, especially in the peninsula where sentiment is swinging back to the government,” one Umno leader told The Malaysian Insider, saying programmes like BR1M have a positive effect on voters.

The BR1M began earlier this year and some RM2 billion was spent for over four million households. The BR1M 2.0 also includes a one-off RM250 for unmarried people between 21 and 30 who earn up to RM2,000.

Analysts say the expanded coverage would include most of the 2.2 million first-time voters expected to cast their ballots in the next elections. There are now just over 13 million voters in the country of 28 million people.

BN politicians also point out that they are expected to get back support from the Indian community, who number 1.7 million, as the coalition has been fulfilling their requests and also extended more aid to them.

However, the opposition has questioned BN’s confidence as the ruling coalition expects to lose more seats in Sabah and Sarawak in the coming elections than before. “How is BN going to make up for losses in the fixed deposit states?” asked an opposition lawmaker when contacted by The Malaysian Insider.

“The Indians are showing more support but we have to work harder. We also have to work harder to get Chinese support apart from others,” the Umno leader said, pointing out that the Najib administration has been working at meeting the requests from all communities in the country.

BN lawmakers note that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s approval rating dropped only one per cent to 64 per cent in June although the government’s approval rating dipped six per cent to 42 per cent in the same month with a major drop in satisfaction coming from Malay voters.

They also pointed out that Najib’s popularity has held despite the daily ceramahs around the country by PR politicians criticising the government on many issues. “PR holds four states now and they are going all out with their ceramahs and blogs but our support remains,” added the Umno leader, who declined to be named.

“We are also pushing ahead to keep our support and get more, especially from the young,” he said.

Many Indians had blamed former MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu for their poor financial circumstances and turned their backs on him and BN in Election 2008. Samy Vellu also lost in his Sungai Siput stronghold in that election.

He said Najib, Cabinet ministers and other aspiring politicians have been visiting all constituencies and also taken to social media to garner support from voters in what is expected to be another closely-fought general election.

The BN mandate expires in April 2009, leaving Najib just six months more to call elections.
