"When I began the campaign, political analysts predicted that BN has no hope, but after almost two weeks there are signs that victory is in the hands of BN," he said during a visit to an opposition stronghold.
The Merdeka Centre research firm, on the other hand, said Anwar is likely to claim victory in the Permatang Pauh electorate in his home state of Penang, but that the new sexual misconduct accusations were a factor in the campaign.
"I think Anwar will win," said the centre's pollster Ibrahim Suffian.
"The issue of the sodomy allegations, while it gained some traction at the beginning of the campaign, by the end had reached saturation point and won't significantly affect his chances of winning," he told AFP.
A poll carried by the Centre found that voters were most concerned over Malaysia's faltering economy, and that 59 per cent believed the sexual misconduct allegations were politically motivated. Extracts from Malaysiakini http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/88545
