We have released Part 1 of the EMIR Research Quarterly Poll (QP) for the third quarter of this year (3Q20) on November 2. This covers the well-being of the nation, living conditions of the rakyat, and socio-economic and political issues.
EMIR Research is pleased to announce Part 2 of the findings of our poll for Q320 which covers the National Worry Index (NWI), the Government Satisfaction Index (GSI), respondents’ political choice and the Voters’ Worry-Satisfaction Valence Model. The latter gives a good indication of the voters’ intention to vote.
Objectives of the EMIR Research Quarterly Poll The poll which was conducted to gauge the pulse from the ground has the following objectives:
Assess the perceived direction of the country and living condition among the people;
Profile the rakyat’s worries and track changes in the national worry index (NWI);
Assess the rakyat’s hopes and expectations towards the government;
Track changes in the government satisfaction index (GSI) among people of different
communities and socio-economic statuses; and
Test Voters’ Worry-Satisfaction Valence model.
The state-wide survey was conducted in August involving 2,096 respondents comprising the rakyats from all the states in Malaysia including Sabah, Sarawak and the Federal Territory.
For the methodology adopted in conducting the poll, please refer to Annex 1.
DISCLAIMER Since the FGD was conducted in July, and the survey was in August, the poll does not take into account the latest happenings in the country which include the surge in Covid-19 new infections – the third wave that began in late September – and the intense politicking among politicians that has led to attempts at power grab culminating in the Sabah state election on Sep 26, and Datuk Sri Anwar Ibrahim’s bombshell that he has the majority to carry him to Putrajaya, and finally the call for a state of emergency to be declared which was denied by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
