President Suharto of Indonesia (1967-1998) embezzeled a total of US$15- $35 billion. he was re-elected every 5 years from 1973 to 1998. does this mean that that the majority of his supporters support him now?

5.3.1. Majority of Singaporeans shared their disapproval of the GST increment from 5% to 7% through different mediums (on-line forums, newspapers, eg.) because they didn't want to pay extra for their goods & services, and also they didn't want the government the have the extra income for themselves. They didn't know that the increase in GST would help Singapore's economy be boosted in the long run.
