    Are the parts in bold correct?

    The Malaysian political scenario, at least for this year, is getting more interesting. While the people at large is really warming up to the political leadership of Najib Razak the persistent tussle for the top post in MCA and PPP is not showing signs of settling down.

    The MCA and PPP are both components of the ruling National Front Coalition.

    However, the opposite camp is getting noisier by each day especially in PKR which is headed by none other Anwar Ibrahim.

    Are the parts in bold correct? If not, what words should be used? The 'is' should be 'are', I believe. But I don't know whether 'by each day' is correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Tan

    1. Person is, people are.
    2. by each day - "by the day" or "day by day" would work.
