The Malaysian Insider reports "Anwar: GE13 a class war" and has these few lines,
Anwar’s plea to voters comes after a survey conducted last month by independent pollsters Merdeka Center found that Najib’s popularity had surged by 10 percentage points to 69 per cent largely on the back of 78 per cent support from households earning under RM1,500 a month.What Malaysian Insider implies, in the last paragragh above, no need for rocket scientist to figure.
The centre credited this largely to Putrajaya’s RM500 cash handout to households with a monthly income of under RM3,000 under the Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia programme.
Najib’s predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s approval rating was 71 per cent before the 2008 polls but BN lost its two-thirds parliamentary majority and four state governments.
Reading the three paragraphs the approval ratings Malaysian Insider cites Merdeka Center polls, right?
This is Pak Lah's popularity rating according to Merdeka Center -
"Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s approval rating was 71 per cent before the 2008 polls but BN lost.."
Can laugh or not?
Never mind this is about Anwar Ibrahim.
Oh, before I forget,
“This battle this election is about the masses the workers the low-income earners against the rich cronies of Umno ” - Anwar Ibrahim.For some serious reading on Anwar cronies read another masterly A Voice "Opening of Anwar's Pandora Box"

On a serious note, back in time "ANWAR JEKYLL & ANWAR HYDE"
But he promised he would not change. He would stick true to his ideals. Which ones? He first changed his dressing. No more chapals, white shirts with epaulettes and cotton pants. It was designer suits, Italian shoes and silk shirts from now on. After all, had not Mahathir promoted him to full minister. He had to live the part.See, it's about Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim so read the whole article above.
No more mangy hair. This was replaced by properly cut and coiffured hairstyles. No more the large framed glasses. This were replaced by Cartier glasses. And the slight, slight tinge of expensive cologne.
Had the change in his personal looks not affected his professed ideals, he would still be doing alright. But no. Not Anwar. He would say one thing in public, one thing in private and do something completely different.
As Mahathir continued promoting him, making him education minister and then finance minister, Anwar's friends started getting richer as well. But that is another story.
