Are The State Elections A Referendum On The Federal Government?

The upcoming polls may be for the six states, but Perikatan Nasional has been framing the state elections as a referendum on the federal government - for instance, PN chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has said that a victory for PN candidates would send a clear message of disapproval toward the governing coalition. So we unpack how this is playing out on the ground, and how much sentiments around the unity government might impact state votes.
