Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's approval ratings in May dropped slightly on the back of a slide in support among youth and non-Malays polled.
According to independent research centre Merdeka Centre, Najib's overall ratings dropped from 69 percent in February to 65 percent in May 2012.
“This figure comes three weeks after the tumultuous events of the Bersih 3.0 demonstration and a series of other counter-demonstrations or events by supporters of the establishment,” it said in a statement.
His ratings were pulled down by a massive 19 percent dip in Chinese support and an eight percent decline in Indian support.
According to the survey, the decline could not offset the commendable 5 percent rise in support from the Malay community.
The PM also saw a slight decline in support among voters aged under 40, with approval rates for those under 30 at a middling 61 percent.
