Do you think the People’s Action Party might perform better in the upcoming general election, about the same, or worse?
According to new findings from local agency Blackbox Research, it depends on where you live.
Some 3,000 Singapore residents — 90 per cent citizens, PRs, and the rest made up of various work pass holders — were polled between October and December 2014 for their take. The agency also ensured that the respondents were representative of Singapore’s population based on gender, income, age and housing type, among other demographics.
Residents in the central area seemed most optimistic, with 73 per cent saying the PAP will command “about the same” or a higher percentage of the valid vote, compared to their performance in 2011. The remaining 27 per cent said they would perform more poorly than they did in 2011.
