The Barisan Nasional has its work cut out for it in the coming general election, if its popular vote in the 2008 general election is any indication.
It suffered a severe setback in the peninsula and relied heavily on Sabah and Sarawak to maintain its grip on federal power.
BN’s popular vote in 2008 general election

Sabah – 61.6%
Sarawak – 64.2% (61.8% in 2006 state polls; 55.4% in 2011 state polls)

How do you think BN will fare this time around in these three regions, assuming there is no hanky panky?
