What do you think of the Gallup survey? Let us know in the comments section.


  • 1208 house vs 50,000,000 house hold (if we suppose Avg 5 persons per house and 250,000,000 population) it makes 0.0024%

    Survey should be a little relevant, Sample taken should be such that it represents the actual Population.

    • Insaan k jism ki koi b beemari check kerne k liye insaan k poore jism k blood ko nikaalne ki zaroorat nahein hoti … just a few mililetters blood sample nikal k beemari ko aasani se check kiya ja sakta hai.

      • You bro nailed it. What a response to an illogical person. He definitely doesn’t know about statistics.

  • The Satisfied 38% are not supporting the government because of Performance, rather they are mainly supporting them for Ethnic and regional reasons.

    Ethnicity Based Support based on Imran Khan’s Ethnicity:
    1) 95 % Pukhtoons ( excluding PTI and ANP) in KP.
    2) Fake Pathans who silently add Khan in their name and claim to be a Pathan (mainly living in Punjab and Sindh) to get more attention.
    3) Baloch/ Seraikis living in Punjab because of Buzdar connection.
    4) All Pukhtoons living in Punjab ( especially Pindi , Lahore etc) and Sindh are blindly supporting PTI as it gives them political power in Minority regions.

    • Khan can be a Punjabi Turkish Pukhtoon or Mongolian. Its a name with many origins but many people confuse khans with pukhtoons they think only pathans can be khans. Changez Khan wasn’t a Pukhtoon.

  • Bhai kia ghar may baith kay survey kya hay yah Punjab may PML-N aur Sindh may PPP kay halqay may baith kar (murdoon say pucha hay)?
    Jahil aagar yeh Govt. sahi nai tu dusarii countries Pakistan ko support Q kartay hn. Zardari aur Nawaz ky period may kitni dignities Pakistan aaii?
