  1. this is outcome of laptop, thandoor, rapid bus and so many other schemes; let see the position when caretaker government form; this is just energy injections will work for a one or 2 months

  2. this ia very biased report. Though the IRI survey might be right, but it only talks about the strong points on PML (N). Just check it again. PTI leads in KPK thats why it doesnt speak about KPK. It says balochistan everyone went up except PTI but they dont give PTI's percentage which is still the highest. In Sindh its showing how much every one increased or decreased by but about PTI it just gives one figuer. The report is published by PML (N) machinery and has left the strong points of KPK out completely. Very sad and biased.

  3. PTI obsessed by its rivalry of PML N and surrounded by many left over of Mush has lost because of its own stupidity. it can either reassess and change course, or sink further

  4. This is senator MaCains organization saying thankyou for maintaining close liaison with the separatist elements in Balochistan.

  5. Totally biased and one sided report, forthcoming Elections will prove that PPP will emerge as a majority party at centre and 3 provinces and will even form govt with her allies in Punjab too.
    Fake survey report like this is misleading and trying to boost pml Nin wrong way.shame.

  6. inshalah imran khan 5 months left so sunaar ki ek lohar ki SIRF AIK CHAKKA AMRNA HE AUR LAHORE KE MINARE PAKISTAN ME IMRAN LAGA CHAKKA WE ARE READY

  7. a american survey know more about PAkistan than Pakistanis 😉 looks like they never ventured out of raiwind!

  8. These surveys are meaningless and manipulated because they are conducted from a sample of almost 5000 respondents and 5000 respondents don’t necessarily reflect the views of 180 million people or 81 million registered voters for that matter. 5000 respondents may not even reflect the view of one district as the average district size of Pakistan is over 1 million in terms of Population and there are over 100,000 registered voters averagely in each district. Such surveys are often conducted and these are without any result for a country like Pakistan. Election results will decide the final outcome.

  9. Nawaz Sharif has the longest tenure in power than Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Benazir Bhutto and even dictators Ayub, Zia and Musharraf. In his 27-year political career, he has been in power for 13 years — two years as Punjab minister, five years as Punjab chief minister and almost six years as twice prime minister. Yet we still don’t know enough about him. What are his habits; his likes and dislikes? What does he read, if at all he does? There is more emphasis on his food habits than his mental and intellectual growth, particularly after his return from exile. What are his perceptions about the rapidly changing Pakistan and the world around him? It is only because Mian Nawaz Sharif had kept himself away from people. The trust deficit gap between him and people is widening with every passing day. He is not ready to expose his agenda before public who directly elect. It is impossible to smell interior motives of Nawaz Sharif, but one thing is
    of sure that now he wants mid-term elections despite knowing that Pakistan is not in position to hold them.

  10. this looks correct survey as only PML(N) worked has policies for prosperous Pakistan and did it before as major projects in Pakistan. We should compare Punjab with other provinces, much ahead. Even just compare Karachi and Lahore there is huge difference in Security, Roads, Transportation everything. We should think for Pakistan.
