Why the PAP got more votes in GE 2015

I spoke to the two winners of the "Guess the PAP share of the Votes" contest.

Why did you guess that the PAP would get a bigger share of votes, when most people expect a smaller share?

Winner 1 - Civil servant
Singaporeans are kiasi. When they hear that the opposition is strong, they got scared and vote PAP. The passing of Mr LKY also played an important part.

Winner 2 - NS man
Mostly the passing of Mr. LKY. When the young people saw their grandparents cry, they must have felt that Mr. LKY did a lot for the country. So, they voted PAP.
