Russia President Vladimir Putin scored his highest public approval ratings in job performance since 2008, according to a recent Gallup poll.
Results of the poll taken among 2,200 Russian adults were released on Friday (July 18), said a UPI report.
On Wednesday this week (July 16), ITAR-TASS released the results of a public opinion poll conducted for the Political Analysis Center. The Russian news agency report said Putin’s ratings have risen to an unprecedented high.
Hmm, the Political Analysis Center poll result was publicized one day before MH17 was shot down while the Gallup poll result was announced one day following the MH17 crash.
It’s quite obvious that the timing of the Gallup release two days ago is a calculated move since the poll was actually taken earlier this year between April 22 and June 9.
There has been no survey on the Malaysian PM’s popularity made known to the public this year as far as I’m aware. However the most recent previous one by Merdeka Center taken last December showed Najib Razak suffering low approval ratings.
Most significantly, he is not popular at all with the Chinese, scoring a lowly 21 percent approval among Chinese respondents.
This means four out of every five Chinese disapprove of Najib.
The centre polled 1,005 registered voters in the first week of December 2013.
Remember, Najib can do nothing right in the eyes of the Chinese. And there is absolutely zilch he can do to please them.
The Indians (57%) and Malays (66%) like him much better.
The Chinese kutuk him daily non-stop.

Remember, nothing that Najib does is ever right in the eyes of the opposition. Even a small matter of Najib playing with his kitten pun diorang boleh kutuk.
The downing of MH17 is a political act by foreigners. The local opposition is reacting in a thoroughly political manner to this windfall landing in their lap.
When Lim Guan Eng urged Muhyiddin Yassin to fly out to Russia, the DAP sec-gen is being nothing but politically provocative.
The DAP media machinery is working overtime to turn public opinion against the PM in order to deal lethal blows against his administration.
In short, the DAP is out to kill Najib every chance they get. Even though they will not succeed this time but nonetheless, it is only to be expected that they inflict more crippling blows to what they term “the Umno regime”.
Remember, Najib is never able to do anything right in the eyes of the opposition. Even a small matter of Najib feeding the pandas pun diorang boleh kutuk.
Everything that Najib does is wrong in the eyes of the opposition. Even in the matter of a plane which is beyond his control, Najib is scapegoated.
