…PAKATAN WILL LOSE BIG IN THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT PROVEN TO THE VOTERS IN
TO BE OF ANY USE. MALAYSIA

THE OVER-ZEALOUSNESS OF SOME OF THE BLOGGERS IS CAUSING THE VIEWS AND OPINIONS AND PROSTESTATIONS OF THE BLOGGERS TO BE MERE GOSSIP, EVEN IF WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE.
THIS IS HOW BLOGGING IS CAUSING PAKATAN TO LOSE THEIR CREDIBILITY IN THE EYES OF THE VOTERS IN
, THE MORE THEY WRITE, THE MORE PAKATAN CRUSHES. MALAYSIA
ANYWHERE AND ANYWAY ONE LOOKS AT IT, PAKATAN’S DAYS ARE NUMBERED. THEIR ONLY HOLD TO PUBLIC RECOGNITION IS THE FOUR STATES THEY STILL CONTROL.
Without this, their presence will not be felt or seen, and they could never find any public venue to have their meetings or conventions at.
The low voter turnout for the Parti Keadikan Rakyat or PKR general election late last year proves this.
How could only ten percent of their registered members care to vote?
This means one thing: that most of them had deserted the party. They had left it without informing their leaders or officials.
Why do they need to inform anyone if they are not supporting the party and Pakatan anymore?
They won’t go to jail or be charged for mutiny.
In fact, those who had deserted Umno and the other Barisan parties also did not care to inform their respective party officials that they had deserted them. They just voted for Pakatan.
And they can still return to Umno and Barisan if they felt like it.
But their membership in Umno and Barisan as well as those in PKR and Pakatan are still there, so the number of registered members of those parties can be substantial as they were never removed from the lists.
Umno and Barisan tried to think that just because they have the huge number of members, that they can easily win in any election.
They had learnt that this is not so.
And Pakatan knows that even though they do not have many members yet, they can still win the election if there are many who can be forced to think that Umno and Barisan are not good for them, based on issues that are used in the campaigns.
So PKR may not have even the four hundred thousand members they claim to have, but they are not deterred as they can depend on the disenfranchised voters who do not want to vote Barisan.
In fact, when one looks at the PKR conventions and meetings at the divisions, one can see how sparse their members are. They could not fill all the seats that were available, unlike the Umno and other Barisan party meetings and conventions which are full to the brim with many more not able to enter the hall and had to make do with sitting outside in the lobby.
The fact that PKR and Pakatan are now able to secure the largest stadiums and halls in the states they control is also bad since they are not able to fill any of them, even with their national leaders attending.
