Poll Position: And the New PM you've chosen is...

Technorati tags: , ,

Beware the Ides of March… which is when the last poll we ran closed. For Chua Soi Lek, at least, the poll results are disappointing. Very disappointing. And the Ides of March wasn’t at all kind to the man.

As it turns out, after a few weeks of the poll being up, NOBODY picked him. Not one single vote.

By a 2% margin over her father (who came in second), you picked Nurul Izzah Anwar as your choice for the next PM of Malaysia.

Overall, those representing BN did very badly. Pretty much sympathy votes, by the looks of it. But with the kind of governmental silliness that’s been happening, are you at all surprised?

And you can’t spell governmental without ‘mental’… which pretty much describes what’s been going on in Malaysia of late. 
(further analysis, and more, in the full post)

Since the chart is a bit of an eye test, Walski decided to provide a tabulation of how each person listed in the poll fared (in descending order):

Nurul Izzah Anwar 29.73%
Anwar Ibrahim 27.03%
Lim Guan Eng 20.27%
Wan Azizah Wan Ismail 5.41%
Baru Bian 1.35%
G. Palanivel 1.35%
Muhyiddin Yasin 1.35%
Najib Abdul Razak 1.35%
Nik Aziz Nik Mat 1.35%
Chua Soi Lek 0.00%

In addition, 10.81% chose the Other option, each providing their choice of candidate (in alphabetical order):

  • Barack Obama
  • Frodo Baggins
  • Haris Ibrahim
  • Ibrahim Ali
  • Khalid Samad
  • Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah
  • Tunku Aziz
  • Walski

In all likelihood, Obama will probably have his hands full taking care of his own re-election campaign this year. And Frodo Baggins? Gosh, you people sure have a cynical sense of humor…

While he is flattered that someone actually had the audacity to name him as the future PM, Walski respectfully declines. That said, Malaysia would probably be a less uptight nation if he were PM.

Okay, time to wake up, Walski…

So, are the results surprising, or is it time to allow the much younger ones a bigger role in nation building?

Granted, this poll reflects the more liberal audience that myAsylum tends to attract, but do the results reflect how Malaysians feel right now, at least a little bit?

Not for Walski to say. You’ve voted, now let’s hear what you have to say about the results…
