Cross-overs and the legality and morality of MPs hopping have been the subject of many articles in malaysiakini.
My poll asked the question:
"What is Your Feeling about MPs Crossing Over?"
This was just before nation celebrated National Day and after Anwar had emerged victor in PP.
The question was framed slightly differently from a question posed a few months back after the March results as I wanted readers to just focus on cross-overs.
Thanks to the 508 readers who took the poll.
262 or 52% chose "FANTASTIC - Too Many Years in Power and BN has LOST Touch with the PEOPLE"
113 or 22% chose "GOOD - the Nation Needs New LEADERSHIP
69 or 14% picked "OK - Must Ensure MPs Have Not been BRIBED"
60 or 12% picked SAD - They Should Resign and let Voters Decide
2 or 0% chose BAD - The BN Should be given a Chance to REFORM
2 or 0% chose SAD - The BN has the MANDATE from the last elections
(Strictly speaking the last 2 results should not be 0% but less than 1%)
It is interesting to note that those who were most unhappy were concerned more about bribery and the Voters Choice.
The number supporting the BN is negligible.
